Noooo! I can’t believe that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is over already! The 2-hour Season Finale is on FOX tonight at 8/7c. After being let down again and again by the SciFi Channel I was so happy that someone was finally airing a decent SciFi show and it was on network TV. This show was probably one of the best things to come out of the writer’s strike. They should go on strike more often if it gives shows like The Sarah Connor Chronicles a chance to air. I’m really going to miss this show. Considering how popular it was, I am hoping that FOX will not wait a full year before producing another season.
Now I know The Sarah Connor Chronicles wasn’t perfect. However, with the exception of Heroes (which is failing) and BattleStar Galactica this is the best SciFi show on TV. The story arc has been excellent so far. With a little effort they will be able to really improve it next season. I really like Lena Headey as Sarah Connor. She plays the hard ass really well. Cameron, the teen aged terminator played by Summer Glau, sent back to protect John Connor again is probably my favorite character on the show. FBI agent James Ellison, played by Richard T. Jones, is also a cool new character. John Connor (Thomas Dekker) comes across as a bit of a whiner and a cry baby though. Its a good thing that his mom is trying top stop SkyNet from ever being built because I find it hard to believe this whiny, emotional teen could possible grow up to be the savior of mankind. Other than John Connor though, I haven’t found much to complain about.
The season finale looks pretty good. Although, it seems like it is a little soon for a finale. It really feels like the show just started and had just begun to hit its stride. As I said I’m really disappointed that the season is over so early. FOX needs to get cracking on Season 2. This would be a great show for the summer (hint, hint FOX).
