While I thought the idea of another Terminator was over after the dismal Terminator 3, I am quite psyched about the series. Summer Glau (River from Serenity) as a female Terminator was at first questionable but the poster above has changed my mind especially after my earlier post about Sex with Robots. The only problem with the concept of the show is that you know how it ends with John Connor leads the revolt against the Machines. So, when you take out that threat of possible loss of a major character, this becomes nothing more than a chase series with a new Terminator of the week shows up.
Another scifi series that was on the run was Starman with Robert Hayes. The movie was great and I even bought in to the concept of Starman using another host body for the series but when he found his son and went off to find Jenny (not Karen Allen but Erin Gray – she was seen once) I was truly bored to tears. Will have to see what happens to the Terminator series as there is no nothing to watch with the WGA strike. The question to ask, since Fox is known for cancelling series before they take off like Firefly, will the Terminator series be cancelled just as quickly? Below is the trailer for the Terminator series just in case if you haven’t seen it. Lastly, another pic of Summer Glau.
