While The Blot has no idea if it’s going to be good or not, I wanted to remind readers that the new Terminator television show, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, debuts this weekend with a two night premier on FOX. The first episode is this Sunday, January 13th at 8/7 Central and the second episode is Monday, January 14th at 9/8 Central.
The show picks up after events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (commonly referred to as T2) and unfortunately does not star the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. The new show stars Lena Headey (300) as Sarah Connor (the role made famous by Linda Hamilton), Thomas Dekker (Heroes, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) as John Connor and Summer Glau (Firefly, Serenity) as Cameron Phillips, a reprogrammed Terminator from the future sent back in time to protect John Connor by any means necessary. Since it hasn’t premiered yet we’ll have to just go with FOX’s description of the new show:
At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah vanquished the Terminator sent from the future to kill her teenage 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.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles reveals what happens when Sarah stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life, and perhaps the world. Her son, 15-year-old John Connor, knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that he's told is his destiny. John finds himself inextricably drawn to Cameron, an enigmatic and otherworldly student at his high school, who soon proves to be much more than his confidante - she assumes the role of Sarah and John's fearless protector. On their trail are not only threats from the future, but an intelligent and tough FBI agent, James Ellison (Richard T. Jones), who soon becomes a powerful ally. (link)
