Sarah Connor Chronicles TERMINATED April 14, 2009

That’s the buzz…the show that started off so brilliantly but in season two has been mostly pure garbage is headed to the trash heap of scifi history.

We’re not surprised – no one should be. Sure some people liked the show this season but the ratings sucked.

We did like the last few episodes, the death of Riley, Derek Reese and the finale with John going back to the future...but it was a case of too little too late.

The show for the most part was — let’s be honest here – boring.

Episodes were poorly acted and produced with long periods of brooding nothingness. That’s not entertainment that’s just lazy writing.

The show had great potential and we were very keen on it in the beginning. Cameron is an interesting Terminator and she had so much potential that was largely unexplored. Derek Reese another fine character…

No this wasn’t Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor,and that was a major flaw from day one.

That and oh yeah – The FRAKKIN writers let us down.

Luckily for Terminator fans the glory days of Terminator are soon here. Terminator 4 : Terminator Salvation might be the best Terminator yet as we finally get to see the true John Connor hero of the resistance at long last.

As for the unfinished storyline of Sarah Connor Chronicles…well i suppose there is always the direct to DVD route and if that fails, hey books would work here too.

Sad that this show has been canned. The first series was excellent but as you rightly say, save for the last 3 episodes, series 2 was just dull and made you almost reach for the remote to cancel future recordings in the series. In fact the TV execs in UK must have relaised it was poor because they hardly advertisied the start of the series so I had to buy it on iTunes to watch the first 4!

They should have thrown away the middle episodes and had a shorter, punchier series that maybe would have encouarged the TV dudes to stump up for a third series and some decent writers based on the premise of the final episodes of John Connor going to the future and the frankly bizarre John Henry and the facially odd singer from Garbage. I mean that whole thing with the vacuous Riley, the terrible acting of Jesse and WTF was that dream sequence of Sarah in the back of the van?

Well, actually I just want to see more of Cameron Terminator. That’s the real reason we’re all pissed by this decision, right?
