Conclusion: amazing.. the story, the acting, the music.. ill admit, i was so angry when i heard they were making a terminator tv series.. especially after the craptastic t3. but after watching TSCC.. im sooooooooo glad they did.
Conclusion: Usually I am rather sceptical when someone makes a spinoff TV-series of popular movies. It was with some mixed feelings I bought this series and sat down to watch the pilot. When I had seen the first DVD, I just had to get up and insert the next one. I have to admit, I have NEVER been that thrilled with a series ever!!! The plot is known, we know that John makes it (T3 - y'know), but it dows not help. This is just Goooooood.
Conclusion: The series ignores the events of Terminator 3 and begins a few years after where Terminator 2 left off. The show isn't quite like the old films, it contains a fair amount of action but this show is largely focused on the lives of Sarah and John Connor, and their mission of stopping SkyNet. It features the standard Terminator in pursuit but the show is as much a drama as an action show and is very much about the development of the characters.
Conclusion: What an excellent series. It looks fantastic on blu-ray.I have just found out that FOX have cancelled the show so after season 2 you get no more. Who's bright idea was that?It's obvious this had lots of fans and would have gone from strength to strength. Shame on you FOX and thanks for cancelling another great series. Get real!
A excellent companion to own alongside the Terminator films.

Conclusion: The first twoTerminator films will always be the best and I was worried that the Sarah Connor Chronicles were not going to be very good when compared to those films. The special effects for a tv series are amazing and the stories are very well written too. It took me a little while to get used to the new actors playing Sarah Connor and John Conner but, when I did I must say they do a fantastic job.
Conclusion: 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.
