    What is the point of watching this show anyway? It has the made for TV looks that aren't bad enough to be funny-just weak. Wow! Lotsa balsa wood being broken. I love Firefly, but Glau is underwhelming. And as for J.C. having to snap his mom out of freezing up/daydreaming (Mom! Now! Let's go!) well, this Sarah Connor is no soldier at all. Pointless retcon of the franchise that What is the point of watching this show anyway? It has the made for TV looks that aren't bad enough to be funny-just weak. Wow! Lotsa balsa wood being broken.

    I still consider Terminator 2 to be the true end of Terminator canon. Different writer + different director = Different franchise.

    Story was actually pretty good, including the unexpected ending, but the acting was borderline awful.....making the show almost a wash in the end.

    Now this show i not tht good really. You know that this website is BS if this show got higher ratings than Terminator 2 Judgement day. This show really did not have a good plot and there are many things wrong with it.

    This show is very OK. It has goods but all of the goods are brought down by the bads. The CGI is good for a TV show but it is brought down by the sub-par acting. Just watch the Terminator movies instead, they are a whole lot better. 5/10 (mediocre)

    The Sarah Connor Chronicles" begins as an intense, thoughtful, exciting, fun spectacle. The first episode will kick your ass.

    Humans vs. cyborgs in a movie spin-off that's surprisingly effective for fans of both action and character drama.
  3. Some die-hards may be frustrated by inconsistencies in the timeline with "Terminator 3," but unless you get overly wrapped up in the details of time travel, tonight's pilot is an intense adventure.
