Television Whitenoise: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

terminator TV Spin-offs from feature films can be a mixed bunch. I missed this when it came out, but I was aware of it because of Summer Glau, who I knew from Firefly and Serenity, and that was what initially piqued my interest, as did the knowledge Shirley Manson was involved. I am glad to say that the whole cast came into their own. Lena Headley came to inhabit her role and got add a lot of dimension to her character. We got to see John Connor start to move from kid to a really believable leader. The thing that really added something¬† to the story and was shaping up nicely before the show got cancelled was the AI John Henry and what they were doing with Skynet and the in-fighting in the camps of both the Terminators and the Resistance. I always feel as much for the writers as the audience when a story doesn’t get to run its full course. Sure, there were some ends tied off, but some interesting questions were not answered.
