The Pitch: In between movies, how else can we milk money from the TERMINATOR franchise?
WHO’S WHO: Lena Headey stars as the title character who’s sole mission is to protect son John (played by Thomas Dekker, HEROES) from being killed by giant killer robots from the future. Rounding out the cast is FIREFLY alum Summer Glau, one of the friendly robots sent to protect John as well as an FBI agent (Richard T. Jones) intent on putting Sarah behind bars.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Taking place between TERMINATOR 2 and TERMINATOR 3, THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES follow Sarah and John’s adventures as they run from robots, as well as the law. Think THE FUGITIVE + killer robots.
THE GOOD: The action packed pilot had this TV Addict on the edge of his seat for the entire hour.
THE BAD: How exactly are they going to keep the action quotient up each and every week? If the season finale of HEROES taught us anything, it’s that with great power comes great respon… err, I mean — it’s that television budgets aren’t very conducive to an action packed weekly series.
Please note: This is not a review, just a first impression. The pilot that was sent to theTVaddict.com is by no means final and many things can and will change between now and when the show actually premieres in September
