Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray)
The time: today. The stakes: all our tomorrows. A nascent AI, assisted by droids, continues to edge toward world domination and the ruin of humankind. It accepts no limits. It fears no one. Except John Connor. The machines know John, now 16, is the future head of the resistance. They know he is growing in abilities. They must find and terminate him. But Sarah Connor is there, protecting and instructing her son as he becomes the man he’s destined to be. The hunt is on in a season of powerful revelations, breathless pursuits and bravura effects. A mysterious 3-dot symbol (do UFOs provide a clue?), a girlfriend for John (is Cameron jealous?), ZeiraCorp (can it master the renegade software called Turk?) – Season 2’s 5-disc action arsenal is locked, loaded, ready to amaze.]]>
Things blow up. Someone you think is a human turns out to be a shape-shifting Terminator. There are confusing forays through time and discussions about what happened when in which version of the past and/or future. But really, the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles--unfortunately the final season of the series--is about family, connections, and the things we do to protect the ones we love. Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) has an especially rough road, nearly dying and becoming obsessed with a three-dot symbol and detours through a world of UFO obsessives. John Connor (Thomas Dekker), a.k.a. the guy who will grow up to lead humanity's resistance to the hated machines, gets tough and gets a girlfriend. His uncle Derek (Brian Austin Green) gets a girl as well, and the women in their lives turn out to have a surprising connection. Cameron (Summer Glau), the Terminator sent to protect John, suffers some damage and reveals some surprisingly human secrets of her own as her relationship with John gets more emotional and complicated. Shirley Manson (lead singer of Garbage) joins the cast as Catherine Weaver, an icy executive with… well, suffice it to say that a familiar (and threatening) face shows up in her company. The special features are extensive and include featurettes on the writing, effects, stunts, music and more. This is a fitting sendoff for an ambitious show. --Stephanie Reid-Simons

In the year 1995, at the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah Connor, her son John and the 800-series Terminator successfully destroy the T-1000, as well as the arm and CPU chip from the Terminator sent back to 1984 in the first film. The T-800 from the second film, at its own request, is then also destroyed to eliminate any future technology that could be used to create Skynet through reverse engineering. Despite this, at the beginning of the television series, a T-888 using the name "Cromartie" is sent back to 1999 to kill John. "Cameron", a Terminator that John sent back from 2029 to protect his younger self, leaps forward in time with John and Sarah to the year 2007 in order to prevent a delayed Judgement Day once and for all. Now wanted fugitives with the fear of pending leukemia playing on Sarah's mind, they must also face the reality that other enemies from the future could be after them.
The show at times seemed great and interesting. But at other times, it was very predictable. You knew nothing was going to happen to the stars of the show at episodes end most likely. That makes it hard to imagine the worst to becoming the worst. In a movie, anything can happen. And, characters die.
Summer Glau does play her character as a Terminator as well as can be. I enjoyed how she carried her character amd portrayed being a Terminator. When she is fighting a larger Terminator can be a bit unbelievable at times not being defeated more easily.
Lena Headey was okay as Sarah Connor. But, the title of the show made it seem like she was the main and most important character of the show when she was really not in the episodes. I understand it was a show about what she experienced, but one would thing she would be the main character all episodes centered around and it was not the case.
I was not very interested in Thomas Dekker playing John Connor. But, the John Connor character is hard to pinpoint how he should be portrayed being the potential future hero and leader of the resistance. But, I still did like the show very much. It was very interesting filling in the timeline, and seeing what and how the writers would continue forward in the series.
Terminator is a very good franchise, and any media regarding it is interesting.
I recommend Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I liked that much of it. I wanted to see how the series would move forward to make sense in the Terminator universe.
The show lasted two seasons from 2008 to 2009.

I mean, you've got Summer Glau in the role of a Terminator. Who better? And Lena Hedley as Sarah Connor? Super amazing.
This is one of those female-driven shows that made me so happy. I have been a fan of the Terminator franchise since I was faaaaar too young to have any business watching them (3... 4 maybe?). The series starts after the events of Terminator 2, forgetting T3 and those other horrid sequels that we shall not speak of.
And then? AT THE END OF THIS SEASON... HOW COULD THEY?! HOW?? Serious plot twist cliff-hanger. Oh my god, it still angers me.
I so wish they would have renewed for Season 3, even though we may have been out our Cersei for a little longer. I cannot imagine anyone else playing Cersei at this point but... darn it! She was Sarah first, in my mind, and I loved it. Loved her. Loved the whole thing.
Even though it was a cancelled series, I still highly recommend watching it, especially if you're a fan in any way of the Terminator franchise. The story line is excellent, engaging, and suspenseful. For the time in which it was released, it was beyond amazing. I own both seasons on DVD and will upgrade to Bluray when I can because it is JUST THAT GOOD.
