I just finished the premiere episode. Wow.
Eight more to see in this first season. This is the new Sarah Connor:
The story picks up between the second and third Terminator movies, we can see a teenage John Connor still hopping from place to place with his mother. An attractive but slender mother with a more current look than the one we see in the movies -well, considering the time they’ve been done- and a more gentle attitude perhaps without being less resolute by that. The first images of the road passing by are a dead giveaway for those of us who remember Sarah Connor pregnant driving away in a jeep along a highway that goes deep into the desert.
I won’t spoil this first episode by describing it here, instead I’ll just say that it was intense, full of action and surprises and I even kinda shout of happiness and relief when realizing that… help was already there on a particular scene. You’ll get it after you see it.
If you enjoyed the Terminator movies you’ll certainly gotta see this series.
I had heard of the airing before comming to Perú and I’m just catching up now with this and some anime from the quietness of this nice andean town with clean air, leisure time, simple life and a stable internet connection to get into the world but to also be detached enough from it as well.
At least for a few more days.
A site tracks this series. They say a second season has been confirmed by Fox on March 20.
Update – link to the Fox site with posters. Personally I like this one
