Terminator TV

Ep 1 of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles today. The kickoff was right on the mark for delivering the feel of the films - right down to the dream. Things keep going from there with plenty of previous TV acting talent on display.

For me the show feels just like Buffy, it has the youth in conflict with the older and wiser character battling the one-dimensional bad guys. Indeed it will be interesting to see if the slow purposeful bad guys can continue to hold our interest. It is quite like fighting zombies actually - they have flesh falling off, dont feel pain, move slowly, make dumb mistakes and more. We will have to see if the new plot elements will stand the test of time...

The Fox website for the series - is nice and creepy and IMDb as usual has plenty of data.
