Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles *Season Prem.* - "Samson and Delilah" - 9/08/08



Spoiler:
Rocked by the Jeep explosion, Johns 16th birthday forces him to confront the reality of his destiny alone. Meanwhile, Agent Ellison faces off with his faith and the Feds in the aftermath of Cromarties massacre, and a new player is introduced, Catherine Weaver (Manson), who is the CEO of a high-tech corporation.


Well, after just finishing S1, I have to say I am pleasantly surprised and eagerly awaiting tomorrow night's premiere.

As most have said it took some time to get into a groove, but when it did, especially in the finale: "What He Beheld", he really became a very good show.

If the last episode showed signs of what is to come, I can't wait. The whole episode was done so well and could rate with the best shows on tv (just this particular ep. mind you). It was poetic and sad and done so well. One question though...
Spoiler:
why did Cromartie not kill Ellison?


But, the whole cast clicks. And from David to Derek, Brian Austin Green really shows range and did a very good job.

I liked the first 9 episodes as a whole and look forward to the future...

Looking forward to season 2 tomorrow night. I'm glad that we are at least getting 13 episodes with the possibility of more.

I'm interested to see how Shirley Manson does in her 1st acting gig Didn't realize she was 42 years old.

Just blew through S1 today on Blu-Ray. Pretty entertaining, but probably not something I'd watch more than once. Still looking forward to the premiere though.

Looking forward to it. Season one really surprised me, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was.

I just finished season 1 and I was pleasantly surprised. I hope Shirley Manson doesn't suck, I'm a big Garbage (her band) fan. I'm super excited about this one.

I watched season "live" but still ordered the season in Blu-ray. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to watch the full season again in BR before I watch episode 1 of season 2.

Even though I think the show spits in the movies' faces, I've got nothing better to do tonight; I'll probably end up watching.

Each "version" of Terminator represents an alternate timeline - movies, books, comics, and now TV. I personally enjoy all the different "what if" stories.

Best guess: He's vital in the future.

Cromartie massacred a bunch of FBI and LAPD.

Cameron entered a car and a bomb went off.

Word is Season 2 will be less serialized than Season 1. Hopefully that just means a mix of stand-alone and "mythology" episodes, rather the the complete abandoning of an ongoing story.

Ah that actually makes sense. Although I thought Dollhouse was going to be on Wednesdays. Either way, it shouldn't have an impact on the quality of the show.

I don't know how you could say that. i think after T3, anything is possible with destiny's and alterations to Judgement Day.

i thought S1 did a very good job of memorializng and embracing the first 2 movies and using them without overwriting and forgetting what happened in them.

except for the awful "The Terminator" picture of Lena Headey and not Linda Hamilton, i thought the nods and character mentions from the movies were very well done.

I'm definitely tuning in for this. Like some others, I had mixed thoughts on the first season. If it hadn't been for the writer's strike and a friend who insisted on coming over to watch each episode, I'm not sure I would have stuck with it. I can't even really remember what happened at the end of the season! Oh, well. Anxious to see what direction the show takes this season.
