Season One

At the end of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," Sarah Connor vanquished the Terminator sent from the future to kill her 15-year-old son, John. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future and the present could attack at any moment. Sarah stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life -- and perhaps the world. John knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but he is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that he's told is his destiny. "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" represents an exciting reinvention of the Terminator franchise, in which the strong and intrepid Sarah discovers that protecting her son and stopping the rise of the machines is more difficult than she had ever imagined.

Season Two

The blockbuster Terminator movie franchise moves to television in this intense, action-adventure drama series which takes place after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Sarah Connor and her teenage son, John, find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they must evade pursuers from the future -- and the present -- in today's Los Angeles, relentlessly battling to save themselves and the world.

 Judgement day: show review, dvd facts and weak puns

| | See all moensk's reviews (2)

If you know the show and are interested in the DVD box specifics then skip the first paragraphs. If you want to know more of the show first, continue reading below :)

== THE SHOW ==

If you are new to Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles, or cynical of a television series based on a once great movie franchise let me tell you that I didn't have hip hopes for it either. A friend of mine talked me into watching it and since I trust his judgement (here we go again) I gave it a go and I was hooked from the first episode.

Part of the allure is the story. Yes, it's basically a retread of Terminator 2 with several clear nods (even Dyson's family is back) but it departs from the Terminator formula cleverly: instead of a Terminator sent back in time to kill the Connors, we now see the Connors travelling 8 years into the future to evade their cyborg hunters and destroy Skynet at its inception. The idea starts off pretty slow but by the end of the first season, you'll find that its story threads run surprisingly deep. Seeing Sarah Connor stumbling when buying a cellphone shows a humourous side of time-travel while adult characters meeting with their unaware childhood selves shows this on a more dramatic way. Season 2 expands upon these ideas and gives us a glimpse of just how the Connor's actions are changing the future. Neat stuff.

The biggest draw of the show is its cast. Lena Headey does an amazing job portraying Sarah Connor, as she can switch between her humane/loving side and tough/protective side insanely well. Thomas Dekker doesn't really get a lot of chance to outgrow his angry/paranoid teenager act as John Connor until the end of the first season, but since the serie's dealing with John Connor's change from teenager to resistance leader, you'll get to appreciate what Thomas can do with the character as the show goes on.

But it is Summer Glau (playing the allied Terminator Cameron) who outshines the rest of the cast. She tackles pretty much all roles, from hard-hitting babe and fear-inducing cyborg to comic relief and love interest. A big part of the charm of the series is seeing how Cameron tries to adapt to the human way of life. Some of her parts had me laughing out loud while other parts had me choked up. There's a roster of excellent side-characters too, with the most notable being Garret Dillahunt as the Connor-chasing Terminator John Henry/Cromartie.

There's still a few kinks though. Some plot devices seem donwright silly (won't spoil them here) but they're serviceable. Also, some episodes are a weak link in a strong narrative chain and can bring down the show's pace considerably. But don't let these trifles distract you: this show is worthy of the license. It's not T2 quality, but consider it a tier below that, with the last 2 flicks nestled below the show. If you're into Terminator, or great science fiction shows, don't hesitate to pick this up.

== THE DVD-SET ==

1) Consider the artwork confirmed. The cyborg-part of Cameron seems to have gotten a metallic finish which looks pretty slick.

2) Language is English only. Subtitles are listed as English and Dutch. It also has an English subtitle track for the hearing impaired.

3) The extras; deleted scenes - a few audio commentaries - 9 featurettes on the special effects, writing, etc - cameron vs rosie fight rehearsal - gag reel

4) The 31 episodes come on 9 discs divided over 5 slipcases. The cases are nicely designed; the front and back of each case contain the appropriate disc information, so on the front of the first case (for example) you'll find a small episode guide for episodes 1 to 3 while on the back of the first case you'll find the information for episodes 4 to 6.

Buy it, enjoy it!

 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Top 100 PC Reviewer

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

£44.99 is a good price for both series and you should not hesitate to buy! Highly recommended!
