DVD Review: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1

Bubbles from The Wire shows up in the middle of this show as a soldier in the future. I like how his hair stayed the same. He looks like a carving of an Egyptian to me.

Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I was watching one of the best goddamn shows on television. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to watch this dense and literate show.

There’s a black cat that hangs out in the courtyard of my apartment, I like to think of him as the guardian of the court. Just like a robot girl from the future.

Apparently the future leader of the free world against the tyranny of machines loves the hell out of The Smiths. Hatful of Hollow, at least. [Morrissey voice]: “Oh, Mr.Robot/you say this is the end of the world/but I’ve heard this joke before.”

There’s a scene where the team of scientists who created the atomic bomb get shot and then rise up as shiny metallic terminators. Granted it was a dream sequence, but that’s what I call science!

Sometimes Summer Glau, who is hot enough as it is, wears striped stockings and these wool arm things with the thumbs cut out. I mean, damn. But it does make me wonder, when does she find time from protecting John Connor to find these cute outfits?

This show is like a really good novel. Which, coming from the Terminator movies is like if someone wrote the next “Of Mice and Men” as a television sequel to Die Hard.
