TV review: SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES
OK, for the time being at least, I’m hooked on Fox’s new Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Gee, for a fan of the first two Terminator movies, who’s seen each of those flicks two dozen times apiece, what’s not to like? Really?
What Sarah Connor’s got going for it big time is its faithfulness to those first two films. It plays The Game set up by James Cameron two decades ago, and that’s really a good thing. This isn’t a “reboot.” Rather, it’s a nice, smooth continuation of the original idea and story, ignoring the questionable third movie of a few years ago. There’s a lot to like here. Lena Headey (300) picks up the role of Sarah from the great Linda Hamilton quite nicely. I believe her in every scene. She may not be as frantic as
Of course, it’s the writing that always counts. And God willing, the writers’ strike will be over by the time this show reaches its ninth and end-of-season episode. This is good stuff. The characters are well drawn. The plot arcs are in place. And I’m curious where we’re headed with The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
It’s always nice to see good sci-fi on TV.
