Terminator TV

I checked out the first season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles at the library, a 2008 science fiction tv series that continues the story of the Terminator movies, picking up with what's happening to Sarah Connor and her fifteen year old son John just after Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

At the beginning of the television series, a T-888 using the name Cromartie is sent back to the time following Terminator 2: Judgment Day to kill John. Cameron, a Terminator that John sent back from 2027 to protect his earlier self, leaps forward in time with John and Sarah to 2007 jumping over the year in which Sarah would have died. Now wanted fugitives with the fear of pending cancer playing on Sarah's mind, they must also face the reality that other enemies from the future could be after them. - Wikipedia

Yes, the time-travel storyline is complicated if you haven't watched the four movies in the series first. I liked the first movie best though it seems a little dated ....

I liked the second movie ok, the third not so much, and I have a past post on the fourth movie. For those who care, there's a summery of the storyline of the four movies in that post.

I've so far only watched the first episode of the tv series, but I don't find it very compelling so far. If you're interested in seeing what it's like, episodes of the tv series can be watched online at
