Either watch it online or watch it on your DVR before tonight. If you wait before you know it you will need to watch 6 episodes.

I have one sitting on my dvr as well. This show is not holding my interest much anymore.

Oh man, I thought this show jumped the shark but the last few have been really good. This one as well.

So apparently the TT is against at least future, skynet?

This was a genuinely good episode. The preview for next week's looks good too.

Could somebody refresh my memory what happened the last time this show was on? Things were all messed up during the World Series and for some reason while watching this week's episode I got the impression that I missed a week, but I really don't think that I did. The episode was good but for some reason the continuity just seemed off to me so that's why I started thinking that maybe I missed an episode.

This show is really losing my interest as well. Too many side stories and other crap going on.

Not losing ANY interest. Love the show, thought it was another very good episode.

I loved that episode and I still think John's girlfriend is a member of the Resistance.

Whoopdido, the last episode was about the Therapist talking to John and Catherine and Jessie was introduced after Derek caught her following him.

The pacing was a bit slow but I enjoyed the ep. I loved seeing the Runaway chick pushed out of the T-Mobile. I also liked Cameron getting back to killer basics.

Not a bad episode though I'd wish they cut the young teenager suffering angst angle with John.

You killed a man. Deal with it.

You can't live a normal life. Deal with it (especially with the fate of millions of humans riding on your efforts).

I liked how Cameron actually shot those clowns who robbed her house. She was 100% right that they were a total security risk and Sarah was dumb as shit for letting that last one go.

And I liked how she waited until after she got the jacket before shooting the gun.

No bullet holes in her purple leather jacket!

I liked this week's episode even though it was a much slower paced episode.

I was surprised the Ellison Terminator scene wasn't a dream sequence.

It was cool to see Cromartie return and then save Ellison. I guess Ellison does serve a bigger purpose for the future.

One of the things that I am happy to see is them not over-using Garrett Dillahunt as Cromartie. I think using him every other week has been good to building more tension and suspense when he does appear.

John seriously needs to get over killing the Armenian. I think he's been acting like a brat for a few weeks now.

Loved the scene with Cameron and Sarah at the Bowling alley. Cameron was 100% correct to terminate them. Agree that Sarah was stupid to keep the last one alive.

Very curious to see what Jessie's real motives are. Man, Stephanie Jacobsen looked really hot in that bathing suit in her final scene.

Next week's episode looks great!

Add Sarah to that list and we're in agreement. ;) She really seems to try too hard in her role, I dunno.

But I'm still enjoying the show.

I don't like how Sarah is becoming pussified! She is supposed to be so careful, hard, and calculating - but for a couple of episodes now she is giving people a couple of free passes.

not shit. she doesn't want John to have a girlfriend or leave the house, but is willing to let some eye witness live who can lead the Terminator back to her front door. uhhh duuuh.

Yeah, biggest problem with this show is the two main characters, John more so than Sarah. Really wanted someone to smack him. And the whole scene with the robber's parents...fast forward. zzzz

Yeah, although I get why they're trying to make TV Sarah more human and TV John more tortured, Emo, and under pressure, I still think "Movie Sarah" would've been slapping TV John on a weekly basis. :lol:

As a matter of fact, didn't she slap him in Terminator 2? Or did I imagine this?

I officially have no clue where the hell this show is heading. Seriously, what is with all the subplots and Sarah becoming a wuss?

I don't know if T2 Sarah would have killed that kid. She had great difficulty bringing herself to kill Dyson up close and personal and in her mind he was directly responsible for skynet's creation. Plus she's also uber mom, remember the "You don't know what it's like to really create something, to feel it growing inside you" line, so I don't think it's inconsistent for her to have trouble killing a kid about the age of her own son in cold blood.

Regardless of that, T2 Sarah would have been out of that house by sundown. They now have three dead kids and a witness out there (plus a dead fence that probably only Reese knows about). Even if a T doesn't catch a whiff, the police are going to be investigating.

Not only the kid witness, but wouldn't the parents of the thief mention to the police that some strange people came and asked about their kid's whereabouts right before he turned up dead?

I think it's a valid point but then again, if she let Cameron handle all the "Security issues"...just think of how many MORE bodies they'd be dealing with. I guess it's a balance.

I liked it. Was nice to see Cameron actually shoot the 3 guys. I was surprised by the Elison Terminator as well, interesting to see where this is going, as if some faction of Skynet views the humans as their creator who they then destroy (not unlike BSG).

I don't have a problem with Sarah not killing the kid, I think that makes sense given she is a mother. I think had it been an adult she wouldn't have had a problem killing him.

I DO, however, have a problem with them living in the same house. T2 Sarah and even Sarah in THIS show's First Season did not hesitate to get up and move at the drop of a hat.

I really hope this show has John experience some growth and become a badass like Derick. He keeps saying, this isn't the John Connor, the soldier. So hopefully something like that will happen soon, where he actually does stop pussing out all the time and realize the fate of humanity is in his hands.

Also, I am VERY intrigued as to Elison's involvement. Cromartie said something like, "They don't believe in you, but I think you will lead me to the Connors" or something to that extent. I'm interested to see whether or not he is a good guy or a bad guy, and same goes for the "Urinator," because while at first I thought she was 100% bad, each episode makes her motives and side more ambiguous than the last. The previews for future episodes show him and Sarah having a discussion, so I'm very interested as to whether or not he joins up with them or is setting them up.

It boils down to this: Is the turk - the good Skynet or the Bad Skynet.

If it is the good Skynet then:
1.) Ellison and Urinator are working to bring into existence.
Therefore Evil skynet sends back the Ellison terminator to kill Ellison, like it hypothetically did with the Twistinator last week. (except to kill the psychologist)

If bad Skynet, then
1.) "Good Skynet" or resistance sent Ellsion terminator to kill Ellison. Cromartie puts the kibosh on that.
Good skynet also sent back the twistinator to kill the psychologist last week.

But I'm still enjoying the show.
To me she is too mellow. She needs to up the personality and emotions a bit.

Are we sure that was cromartie? I thought it was a T1000 hand that came through the Ellison terminator?

I thought that as well but when they pulled back on Cromartie didn't he have a pipe in his hands?

Either download it on Itunes or watch it streaming on Hulu or FOX.com.

Those are your best bets if you missed the episode.

Ah..okay. It was cromartie and he used some sharp metallic object. He said, "skynet doesn't believe you like I do. You will lead me to the Connors." So it's not that he is really rogue just a difference in getting to the same endpoint. BTW he killed that terminator way too easily. That metal thing wasn't that sharp that he could just push it through him without even pushing him down.

Plus why aren't the terminators linked through wireless connection? Haven't they figured out how to do that yet? The Borg are. And I can see if it was a very special thing to send a person or a terminator through like in the movies you wouldn't need it. But if they are sending them through every week and setting up a network of them doesn't it make sense that they would work much more efficiently if they communicated? Then every terminator would know what John looked like and they could easily accomplish their mission.

Cromartie pushed the metal through the T then pulled some battery or vital component out with his hand.

not sure I like all these T800s that look like real people

and the T1000 changing form in the middle of a fairly busy area was stupid as hell on her part

This ep was a bit dull. I don't know which chick is more annoying: John's girlfriend, the pregnant landlord or the runaway. Loved seeing the runaway get tossed out the car though!

I think she's probably best known for Battlestar Galactica.

John's girlfriend has got to be the most annoying character in the history of television.

...In my humble opinion of course.
