Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles Official Season Finale Thread
TV Guide ^ | Monday, March 3, 2008 | James Cameron, Josh Friedman, Gale Anne Hurd

Posted on 03/03/2008 4:55:14 PM PST by KayEyeDoubleDee

Someone's fate hangs in the balance in Chronicles' season finale, but that wasn't how it was planned. The strike halted filming with only nine of 13 episodes shot. Luckily, the cliff-hanger ending ties storylines together...

I don't follow the show, but I can see that she has a nice chassis.

Cameron rocks-She is definetely easy on the eyes. She plays a character that is very reminiscent of her character on “Firefly”. Anyone remember that one? She doesn’t have to be a real good actress-IMHO her characters are usually a bit “different” (vis a vis social graces) so it’s acceptable...

So far she seems good, but in the future clip she told the one guy that sometimes they go bad. I vote not guilty regardless. I'll watch it later tonight on tivo. I wonder if they will renew the series.

I like the series.

However, it’s a shame the original Terminator is now The Turdinator.

Got to be good. If she had any bad motive the greatest prize is constantly within her grasp.   John and Sarah would be dead if she were bad.

I say the bad onje is Kyle's brother. They turned him into a mole when he was the Machine's captive in the future.

Nice eye candy. Pity she can’t act.

I’m amazed that anyone watches this show. I’ve tried on several times, and I can’t stomach more than 10 minutes before the watery plot causes retching.

For the record, I thought Linda Hamilton was WAY hotter, too.

All I care about is future war, been waiting to see that since the glimpses in 84.

“This is burned in by laser scan. Some of us were kept alive... to work... loading bodies. The disposal units ran night and day. We were that close to going out forever. But there was one man who taught us to fight, to storm the wire of the camps, to smash those metal motherXXXXers into junk. He turned it around. He brought us back from the brink.”

That is Terminator to me, on the big screen. Epic.
Not little hot chickies running around TV shaking it.

That is the big question. At first I thought she was part (brains and personality) human; how I am not so sure. The scene last week where she was practicing ballet and Resse was watching was one of the best SciFi moments this century. Not since Farscape have I been so provoked to think about the story by the characters.

You'd know.

I merely expressed my surprize that the program has attracted an audience, and my personal thoughts on the level of writing, acting and directing. No need to make it personal.

As far as TV adaptations of movies go, I think this is the smartest one ever. Good plots, good characters, good acting.

I agree that was very effective.

Showing the old Psychiatrist as a deranged believer was pretty clever also.

This is a nice touch, showing Kyle and Derek Reese playing catch and watching the missiles launch.

Her acting is like the Zoolander calander where every month was the same exact look and pose.

I do agree with the other poster. The scene where she was dancing ballet was probably one of the most thought-provoking visuals in sci-fi I had seen in quite some time.
Kudos to those who wrote and filmed that scene. I think everyone experiences a moment like that at least a couple times in their lives when exposed to a new invention or technology that just blows their mind, but makes you worried for the human race at the same time as well.
But besides that one gem, the show is Terminator 90201 and I was totally underwhelmed.

Summer Glau as River in Firefly? Yep. Very hot ... but she was quite strange and very psycho in that one. Firefly was a one-season wonder, and one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen. Hope you saw the spinoff movie Serenity. River ROCKED in that. Haven’t seen The Sarah Connor Chronicles yet. I’ll wait until it gets to Netflix.

Have you watched all of the episodes?

I will admit I fell for Terminator from the get go. The thought of a machine from the future that will not stop until it kills YOU is a great SciFi plot. Then you, in the future turn the machines on each other - even better.

I became their bitch in the first episode. My eyes rolled when Sarah hid from the T-800's gunfire behind the chair "O please! Is that chair upholstered in Kevlar?"

10 minutes later I find that producers are playing me - just like Cameron is playing the Connors.

Wow, that was deep! Derek gave John the Birthday present of seeing his father in the park as a five year old. Shades of Woody W. Smith!

So far I like the series and loved Firefly & Serenity. I actually met her at a Dragoncon the one time she was there with Wash. She struck me as very pleasant and sociable. I think I have a little video of her when I went to her table at the walk of fame.

I am looking forward to the continuation if it happens.

I note that the explosion will not of course kill Cameron, but it leaves the door open for recasting with another actress if they want to go that route. Which would be a pity, as Summer is stunning IMO.

I loved the Johnny Cash song with the Revelations quotes that they used for the massacre scene.

For what you might call a "pulp fiction" serial on Monday nights, I think the writing has been outstanding so far.

And the cast has excellent chemistry with one another.

Apparently she grew up in Texas, so there's at least a chance that she's a halfway normal person.

Remember, five year old Woody was in the jump seat while his future self was steaming up the car windows with his mother Maureen. That was an even greater chance for paradox but if it was good enough for Heinlein, it’s good enough for me.

Pretty much everything up to what I’m assuming was the last commericial break..the scene with the FBI agents. It came back from break...I saw saw Sarah typing on a computer screen and then it went out.

They basically figured out that the guy shot by Derek was not Sarkissian (the bad guy) but a flunky. The real Sarkissian was the host at the cafe who got his head pushed against the counter. Meanwhile, Cameron sees the real Sarkissian walking away just as she turns the key in the Jeep and it blows up. End of season.

Just don’t ask me what was up with Chola Girl and Cameron, because I can’t figure that one out.

The original Terminator film had a special magic for me back in '84. I'd never seen anything like it before. Dark and terrible and thought-provoking. With a poignant, searing romance between Kyle and Sarah.

Only saw one ep of the new series. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD.

It showed Cameron get into a van in front of the house as she notices a suspicious character walk swiftly away down the street (it may have been the father of the little girl at the bar).

They flash back to John and Sarah looking at the hard drive of the guy that they assumed took "The Turk" when they discover that the British thug they killed was not the right guy.

They switch back to Cameron turning the ignition switch and the van exploding in a huge fireball. The End.

This season has been a little rocky, but that’s not unexpected for a first season. I think we must have had more patience in past years, judging by the quality of first season Star Trek: TNG and other shows that started bad and became good. At any rate, the last three episodes have been gold. I never thought the addition of Brian Austin Green to any show would be a good thing, but he’s surprised me. The park scene was very effective tonight. And, the FBI agents scene showed that this is art and not some sci-fi hackery. If it gets picked up for another year, and it can keep up the level of quality they’ve suddenly found, it could be a classic.
