Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete S1 (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is the weekly TV series based on the hit action/sci-fi movie franchise that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a star. Lena Headey (300) plays the title character, the mother who bears the burden of raising--and protecting--the future salvation of mankind, her teenage son, John (Thomas Dekker, Heroes). As explained in both of James Cameron's Terminator movies (this series considers the third film, Rise of the Machines, not part of its mythology), the computer system Skynet has taken over future Earth, and an adult John Connor is the leader of the human resistance, causing the robots to send android assassins--called Terminators--back in time to kill John before he can become a hero. John's would-be assassin--introducing himself as a substitute teacher named Cromartie (Garret Dillahunt)--tracks him down, but John gets a fighting chance with the surprise arrival of a benevolent Terminator (Summer Glau, Firefly) named Cameron (get it?), who declares, "Come with me if you want to live" (another nod to the movies).

Thus begins an uneasy partnership among Sarah, John, and Cameron, with Sarah not trusting Cameron and Cameron trying to carry out her mission (some of her deadpans are hilarious) and John caught in the middle (lucky John!). The trio time-travels ahead to 2007 but still can't escape the relentless Cromartie, and also dogged by an FBI agent (Richard T. Jones) who thinks Sarah Connor might be more than just a fugitive. And while the series' fierce action looked like it might slide into a simple Chase of the Week formula, things got interesting with our heroes' discovery of a chess machine called the Turk that might be the first incarnation of Skynet, and a surprising addition to the team (Brian Austin Green). Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles debuted on Fox in January 2008, and the midseason start and the writers' strike kept the season to a mere nine episodes. But it was picked up for a full second season in 2008-2009. --David Horiuchi

The Sarah Connor Chronicles is definitely the best new show to come out this year. It takes place where Termiantor 2: Judgement Day leaves off. We follow Sarah Connor (Lena Headley, 300) and her son John Connor (Thomas Dekker, Heroes) are runing from Skynett, a futuristic company with evil intentions, and the FBI. Sarah and John are protected by a terminator sent from the future named Cameron (Summer Glau, Serenity).

The characters are all interesting and the show keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first episode right to the shocking final scene of the finale. The series completely makes up for the third Terminator film. This collection is a must-own for Terminator fans and anyone who loves great television.

The first season has a lot to live up to. If you're a fan of Terminator 1 and 2, you may question the choice of Sarah and John. However, both Thomas Dekker and Lena Headey explode on the screen. Lena Headey does an especially fabulous wonderful job embodying Sarah Connor. I am a huge fan of Terminator 2, and this series was like a dream come true (although, its life span was much too short!!). The first season is pretty short, but it has to set up a lot of scenarios for the second season to really start attacking. And let me tell you-the second season will take you for a ride.

By rule of thumb, whenever a popular franchise switches directors, it tends to spell disaster. After Terminator 2: Judgment Day, director and creator James Cameron left the franchise to move onto more personal projects such as Titanic. His absence was filled by two subsequent directors, Jonathan Mostow and McG for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator: Salvation respectively. Both were met with mixed opinions by both critics and fans of the franchise. Meanwhile however, TV channel FOX was outputting the single-best television show based on the beloved franchise in the form of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles.

Skeptics came out of the woodwork on this one, but were quickly silenced. The TV show picks up directly after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, focusing on the aftermath of Sarah Conner and her son John, who escaped certain death at the hands of the T-1000 and managed to prevent Judgment Day from occurring in the year 1997. Despite their success, Sarah Conner is incapable of resting easy. She stays true to her militant ways, trusting no one while attempting to stay under the radar. John Conner however, is growing up. As a young man, he quickly becomes frustrated with his mother's refusal to allow him to live a life of freedom. The pair move to a new city to start over, and John begins attending a new high school under the alias "John Reese," an ode to his deceased future resistance father. He also befriends an attractive girl named Cameron, who both share the same class. Soon however, John realizes that his life is in danger after his substitute school teacher turns out to be a new model T-888 Terminator sent back through time to assassinate him.

This is the best small screen SCI-FI series. The story thankfully is more closer to the T2 film, thankfully not like the latest installment: Salvation. In my opninion the series seems to be more like the Cameron Chronicles, as it seems to focus mainly on her growth as an AI. If you are on the fence with whether to purchase this DVD or not, all I can say is that it will be the best choice to take the plunge and buy this DVD. This series is absolutely captivating, and you will be consumed by the storylines. I caught onto the series late in Season 2 and loved it, and immediately went out and bought Season one. I wish that FOX with reconsider and bring th series back to television, or have another producer pick up the series to continue it on. The series finale will torment me until some kind hearted network will continue the story...

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - Season 1 [Blu-ray]

This was one of, if not THE best new series of last season. Despite the writer's strike shortening this series' first season down to only nine episodes, it was action packed! Forget the few negative reviews out there saying that it ignores T3, because that's a good thing. This is supposed to take place after T2, therefore T3 does not exist in this story line. The writing is clever and sticks to the Terminator canon. If you liked T1 and T2 and are willing to accept that this series uses them as its basis and goes in a slightly different direction, you'll love this series. If you're not willing to accept that and enjoy the deeper character development, then don't watch this. In my opinion, as a die hard Terminator fan, this series is an excellent, excellent compliment to the first two movies, and ignores the dreadful T3.

5 Stars!

I can't believe they cancelled this series. Great acting, nice variety of plots and approaches to each episode, decent effects (on par with the movies, while not as grand in scope), well worth the price of entry. I just want more episodes!
