  Not A Bad Television Series...

| | See all blayboy's reviews (447)

This is an okay Television Series from The Terminator Franchise. Although Terminator was at its peak 15 Years ago the Television Series still still has the original energy and suspense. Some episodes are a little mediocre and sometimes its hard work but overall its a good TV production. It also really picks up throughout the series.

  I love it!!!

  a fine progression of the Terminator movies

| | See all Suush9's reviews (25)

This is an excellent continuation from Terminator 2 onwards - Fans of James Cameron's vision will truely appreciate this series as its a true follow on. While Terminator 3 wasn't as terrible as everyone said it was, it didn't have Sarah Connor - However Terminator 4 is not even worth the time spent on it - its a poor movie. So for true fans who were disappointed with those sequels this TV series set is well worth a watch and an excellent deal here to buy.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles are a perfect continuation as they are seperate from the timeline of Terminator 3 and 4 - Involving all the thrilling ingredients that made the The Terminator and Terminator 2 movies so brilliant - great drama, great plot, stylish action sequences (An example of this being the first dream sequence of the pilot episode - its thrilling and high budget stuff), and the humour and tension from the first two movies is still there too.

Any great Sci Fi fan or Terminator fan should spend time and watch this series - Its well worth the money and brilliant stuff.

  Loved it!

Well..i watched the previous 3 terminator films, and was very impressed - excluding terminator 3. My brother had started watching The sarah conner chronicles, and kept talking about it - telling me how brilliant it was. In the end i watched the first episode, i loved it, and continued to watch the first and second series. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is full of action, romance and determination. As the series continues, we see john, sarah and co. Trying to stop judgement day from ever happening. I would deffentaly watch this, if you are a fan of the terminator's, or you want to watch a good series in general.

  The ill-fated prodigy

I've liked TV shows before but this is something different. I'm obsessed and I really don't know what to do since Fox cancelled it and I can't stop thinking about it. I can't give the show justice as it can not be done in writing, it truly is fantastic. The acting is amazing(Summer Glau's Cameron is very cool and very creepy), the show is action packed but does not rely on it extensively to sell and the plot emmerses you in Josh Friedman's vision. If you are a fan of the original Terminator and Terminator 2, this is perfect as he [Friedman] holds on to what James Cameron used to make the Terminator special. Terminator 3 and Salvation were both complete failures that relied on quick, cheap action with the occasional cyborg thrown in to masquerade as part of the film series but they are not, TSCC represents what they could only of hoped to, and probably should of with their budgets, been.

Unfortunately, this prodigical show went unnoticed, whether due to people's preconceptions or that it was stupidly assigned the Friday Night Death Slot, so the ratings were low so Fox cancelled it. You have to watch this series.

  Furious this show has been axed!

| | See all FormerlySWM's reviews (13)

This is one of the greatest sci-fi events in tv history, and yet the numbskulls in TV Network land have decided that 2 seasons is enough, and as of 18th May 09, the show has been cancelled, so u have to make sure you buy both seasons and cherish them because there will be no more.

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles is a fantastic series and one which fans of the films will enjoy. Those who didn't like Terminator 3, will be happy to hear that this series is set in an alternate reality, where judgement day is in 2011, not 2004.

I felt that most of the actors/actresses in the series were of a high quality and really fitted well into the personas of their characters. Garret Dillahunt as John Henry, Lena Headey as Sarah Connor, Richard T Jones as James Ellison and Brian Austin Green as Derek Reese were all personal favourites.

I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys sci-fi/the terminator films/drama. The plot twists are worthy of a blockbuster movie and work well to keep you hooked. The effects are brilliant too, especially the terminators themselves, who look chillingly sinister and realistic when parts of their metal body are exposed

£17.99 is a good price for the series and you should not hesitate to buy! Highly recommended!

  Great spin off from the feature films

This series has done very well with the back history of the Terminator world made in the films, Great cast espically Summer Glau as the protecting Terminator, some weaker episodes let it down but watch out for the scene near the end of the series with the FBI agents, most moving scene of my year, can't wait for series 2

Just got this and im half way through, but so far its awesome, and it is 1000 times better than T3, and yes the terminator is sexier! so is Sarah Connor aswel!!! personally i prefer Lena Headley to Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, just by using 1 simple rule, this Sarah Connor is from a different timeline, hence looks different and acts different, so my belief is there are different Sarah Connor and John Connors in different timelines!
