Terminator so far is okay. There's promise here, but I'd really need to see more.
What really intrigues me the most so far is the notion that the war between Skynet and the Resistance has gotten wider than anyone thought. I just like the idea of time being a battlefield now, and you never know if anyone John and Sarah might meet is a Resistance agent or a Terminator. It makes the series complex enough that the story might progress beyond T2 and into new territory. I get the sense the creators have a fair handle on what Cameron was saying, but without being too attached to it.
Agreed on the cast... Summer Glau is good (love the name Cameron-- heh ), the others are passable but not as good as past actors. Though admittedly Linda Hamilton defined that role, so anyone would have a hard time taking over.
What the h***? No way that this will be a success right? Sounds like a cheap way of reviving the original Terminator. Definitly not gonna like this. Terminator 1 nailed it, cuz it was new, special effects for that time were brilliant and the sequels did a good job. But a tv serie of this? Not even with Arnold or Linda in it?
She does a great job. How could the show not be good. As far as Lena Heady as Sarah Connors andThomas Dekker as John Connor -- I remember when Sean Connery stopped doing James Bond -- the Bond movies continued to be hits.
I enjoyed that scene from tonight's show where Summer's head goes through a car windshield, and she says to the occupants, "Stay calm" as she gets up from the hood of the car.
