 Import the US version

Great BluRay but you'd be much better off importing the US version, it's region free, cheaper and comes with all of the special features (the UK version only has deleted scenes).

I love this series, imo it's one of the best in recent years and it adds a great perspective to the Terminator movies.
btw no need to order the US-version. all the extras are on this edition too but the info on play.com is missing. mine even came in a nice box with silver-mirror effect on the endoskeleton of the cover.

 A excellent companion to own alongside the Terminator films.

The first twoTerminator films will always be the best and I was worried that the Sarah Connor Chronicles were not going to be very good when compared to those films. The special effects for a tv series are amazing and the stories are very well written too. It took me a little while to get used to the new actors playing Sarah Connor and John Conner but, when I did I must say they do a fantastic job. Cameron the female terminator who is helping the Conners against Skynet and the other terminators is great and very sexy. Camerons name is a direct nod to the godfather of terminator itself Mr James Cameron. The blu-ray transfar is brilliant and I can't wait for the Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles session 2 to come out and Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins which looks ace too.

 Now its out!

I love this show so much and couldn't wait to watch it again! This is well worth getting,for the extra scenes and the extended version of episode 7(The Demon Hand)
This is pretty much what you get:
Creating the Chronicles featurette
Commentaries - includes executive producers Josh Freidman & John Wirth, cast members Summer Glau & Thomas Dekker, and more.
Terminated Scenes (i.e. deleted scenes)
Gag Reel
Cast Audition Tapes - includes Lena Headey, Thomas Dekker, and Richard T. Jones
Storyboard Animatic - featuring the storyboard sequence of the school session where Cromartie attacks and John narrowly escapes
Summer Glau Dance Rehearsal
Extended Director's Cut of Episode The Demon Hand
Hope this helps.

 The Terminator franchise is back on good form.

The Terminator saga is one of the longest running and well created predestination paradox stories in modern science fiction and it is with great care that they have created The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Set after the events of Terminator 2, the series centres around Sarah's efforts to keep John safe and 'off the radar' while keeping an ever watchful eye out for the Terminators themselves.
John has to deal with growing up, never staying in one pace too long and he feels the tremendous weight on his shoulders and the responsibilities that Sarah is reminding him of.
Help for them arrives in the form of Cameron, a new Terminator sent by John in the future to protect himself in the past.
As the show progresses we begin to see just how complex the paradox has become and the frightening levels which the machines are prepared to go to win.
Not content with sending the T-1000 back, the machines have sent others into the past and their missions are not all about John and the Resistance.
The Resistance themselves appear to have sent their own troops back, some as far as sixty years in order to prepare for the coming war.
Behind all the events in Sarah and John's lives are the investigations of FBI Agent Ellis, who is beginning to piece together the parts of Sarah's past and is coming to understand what she is running from. The best episode for him is in The Demon Hand where he catches up with Doctor Silberman, now played by Bruce Davison, to talk about Sarah's stay in the mental hospital.
The show runs along at a good pace, with carefully thought out scripts and a talent for twists and turns. The most shocking cliffhanger comes in at the end of Queen's Gambit when we discover the identity of one of the Resistance fighters. There are some flashes of the future which begin to explain certain events but while they answer some questions, they give you more to think about. That said, the final ten seconds of the final epsiode 'What he Beheld' are also shocking in their suddenness.
The series is intended as a continuation of Terminator 2 but the writers have already specified that the events from the pilot episode will place the series in a parallel timeline to those events established by Terminator 3 so the remainder of the movie franchise will not have any direct baring on the show.
The three main stars of the show do very well indeed. There was some debate that Lena Headey was not suitable for the role but after a couple of episodes there is no doubt at all that she is Sarah Connor. Thomas Dekker (Zach in Heroes) is well cast as a young John Connor. His interplay with Cameron is excellent and you can see the beginnings of the man that will one day lead the Resistance. Summer Glau is okay as Cameron but sometimes she seems to play the part as either River (from Firefly) or Tess (from The 4400) which is a shame as it almost makes it seem like she cannot bring anything else to her performance. That said, she has a Terminator stare that just makes you want to run a mile.
Due to the writer's strike season 1 only ran for 9 episodes with Pilot, Gnothi Seauton (it means know thyself), The Turk, Heavy Metal, Queen's Gambit, Dungeons And Dragons, The Demon Hand, Vick's Chip and ends with What he Beheld.
So, for fans of the Terminator saga or some good science fiction, The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a must.
