Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete Second Season (DVD)
The blockbuster Terminator movie franchise moves to television in this intense, action-adventure drama series which takes place after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Sarah Connor and her teenage son, John, find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they must evade pursuers from the future -- and the present -- in today's Los Angeles, relentlessly battling to save themselves and the world.]]>
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

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.
Re: Terminator TSCC — counting all iterations, there have been five John Connors, three Sarah Connors (who of whom are both queens on Game of Thrones) and three Kyle Reeses. No doubt, there will be many more to come.
While some aspects of season one felt like thinly veiled homages to "T2," season two shot into uncharted territory with a depth and humanity that had not been seen since the genesis of James Cameron's original films. There are equal proportions of drama and action (betrayal, love, hate, and all the things that make us human), as well as plenty of choice moments and one-liners for fans both new and old to remember. What you "know" about the war, the machines, Skynet, and even John Connor himself will be radically challenged in a way that is still respectful to and cognizant of the source material.
I think the original Terminator, T2, and this series (forget T3 or Salvation), along with certain issues of the Dark Horse comics, make a complete and nuanced canon for the "Terminator" universe.
