    Consistently entertaining. The action sequences were never lacking; Cameron is awesome! Side-stories and flashbacks were interesting rather than just adding to character development. The plot came together well with time, and the finale blew me away. Other than a few episodes, I found this season well paced. Full Review »

    To be honest I absolutely hated it. I mean she blew off a terminators head with a shotgun come on and the love story just seemed very lame in my opinion. I'm actually glad they ended the show. I'm sorry I have to be one of the few negative reviews on this page but the show was just bad. I mean I liked all the movies better than this show. I mean they use the time Machine wayyy too much and yeah it's just not good at all in my opinion. Terminator 2 is still the best. Full Review »

    I feel a show like this suffers "critically" from science-fiction syndrome: the general tendency for science fiction in general to be misunderstood or ignored in the "serious", "critical" tradition; much like science fiction novels tend to be considered as separate from more literary works. That being said, this show deals with many science fiction themes - and many more personal, humanistic themes - responsibly and thoughtfully for a major network television show. Like any long running series, there are a few misses in writing and acting, but overall this show was about as good as any scifi/action television show gets! Full Review »
