An interesting enough idea, but the execution just bored me to tears, even though they had Summer Glau (River from Firefly) playing the Terminator! I really, really tried to get into it, but I couldn't. Plus, if you're a purist, this show's continuity completely disrupts the entire Terminator universe.

More Terminator: The Sarah Connor C... reviews
review by . February 28, 2011
When I first heard about the Terminator TV-series it sounded pretty boring. Just a rehash of the movies.

After the reprogrammed T-800 Model 101 Terminator (the role played in the second film by Arnold Schwarzenegger) had sacrificed itself to save humanity, Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) and her 15-year-old son John (Thomas Dekker)--who was destined to grow up and lead a resistance movement against the rulers of post-apocalyptic Earth--were stalked by the futuristic agents of the covert US government project Skynet. Just as the titular robotic villain of the original 1984 Terminator movie had sent been back into time to kill Sarah Connor so that John would never be born, so too had the bad guys travelled backward to 2007 to knock off both John and Sarah. Fighting fire with fire, the Connors became fugitives from the law, dedicating themselves to preventing Skynet from being created--and, ultimately, from devastating the earth in a nuclear holocaust.
