Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

a woman fights to keep her son alive when killer robots come from the future to prevent him from fulfiling his destiny

Type of Pilot: action/adventure; sci-fi

Similar Shows: Well, it has actions scenes like 24, and it's got strong kick-ass women as the leads, like Alias, Buffy or Painkiller Jane, but it's really not anything like any of those. Hmm. Guess, it's a bit of an original beast. Nice.

The Inner Light: No one is ever safe.

Strengths: Great premise, great cast, great action sequences, the promise of interesting sub-plots.

Weaknesses: None that I can think of.

Impressive Characters: Cameron, the good Terminator

Impressive Actors: Summer Glau owns this show, she's great from start to finish.

Continuity: Looks like the show will have a few running sub-plots.

Rewatchability: Very rewatchable. Since I saw this pilot I've been waiting for a chance to watch it again.

Three Things I Really Like About This Pilot:

Summer Glau as the heroic Cameron. There's something cool about an apparently slight, and very hot, young woman beating the living crap out of killer robots twice her size.

I was very impressed by the pilot's ending, firstly because it hinted that a couple of dangling sub-plots will be followed up on.

And secondly for what actually happened. It was a cool ending to the pilot. Not 100% sure it made sense, really, but it was still cool.

Three Two Things I Really Don't Like About This Pilot:

The opening scene is a long dream sequence. I hate that!

The baddie didn't have much on-screen menace or charisma.

Miscellaneous Comments:

Not much to add. It's good, I want to see more.

Summer Glau totally OWNS that show! There's just something about her that's just addicting. Mabee it's the fact that she's verry pretty,is a great actress, or that it's just awesome watching some hot girl beat the living crap out of people and macines twice her size.
I can't miss one episode!

It's a totally wesome show, but so far, I've found season two a little less interesting. There's to much talk, not enough action. And Summer Glau has fewer kick-but scenes.

Ignoring Friday Night Lights renders the Emmy's meaningless.
