Okay, so perhaps my half-joking prediction for Brian Austin Green’s TERMINATOR role was a bit off base. But can you really blame me for thinking that the notorious B.A.G. might possibly be the show’s first robot/human hybrid? The evidence was all there! It’s been ten years since BEVERLY HILLS 90210 went off the air and Green hasn’t aged a day. Purely human genes, I think not.
That said, as each and every episode airs, TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES continues to get more and more interesting. Clearly, Josh Friedman gets the fact that while fans will never tire of Cameron and the Connors facing down the occasional indestructible robot, the real drama comes from the relationships between the characters.
Like the episode’s finale scene. How great was the moment when John called Sarah’s ex-fiance Charley to help save her newly discovered brother-in-law? Talk about one awkward family dinner when Derek eventually wakes up from those multiple gun shot wounds.
Another great a moment from last night’s episode: Cameron. Her grief counseling scene with the creepy (and totally hiding something) grief counsellor was fantastic and featured the night’s best line, “I’m done with grief counseling. I’m feeling much better.” Any guesses as to how long it takes for C.G.C. (Creepy Grief Counsellor) to try and hit on Cameron. Boy is he in for a surprise!
And finally, a question for my fellow TERMINATOR Addicts. How many more pieces of robotic arms and legs is it going to take for the rest of the world to finally clue into the fact that there’s something really weird going on in Los Angeles? Post away with your thoughts.
