Product Description

Product Description

Season 1:
At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah Connor vanquished the Terminator sent from the future to kill her 15-year-old son, John. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future and the present could attack at any moment. Sarah stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life, and perhaps the world. John knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but he is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that he's told is his destiny. The Sarah Connor Chronicles represents an exciting reinvention of the Terminator franchise, in which the strong and intrepid Sarah discovers that protecting her son and stopping the rise of the machines is more difficult than she had ever imagined.

Season 2:
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.

From Amazon.co.uk

The pressure was really on The Sarah Connor Chronicles right from the start. The first spin-off from the extraordinary Terminator franchise, it picks up after the events of the second film, and finds Lena Headey in the title role, who--along with her 15-year old son, John--sets about trying to save the world from the impending threat of Skynet. Along the way too, they encounter Summer Glau (whom there’s a strong chance you’ll know from Firefly), who steps into the shoes of Cameron, a bodyguard Terminator who helps fight off the many threats they face. She’s some piece of work.

Very deliberately paced, and intricately woven to make sure it safely fits within the Terminator universe, The Sarah Connor Chronicles works a great deal better than you’d have any right to expect. Tightly scripted, and with a terrific performance by Headey in the central role, the show packs plenty of action and narrative into the nine episodes of its maiden season, and it certainly whets the appetite for more.

Perhaps the biggest compliment to be paid, though, is that The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a worthy companion and follow-up to the first two Terminator films, and one that genuinely expands and deepens the franchise. It’ll be fascinating to see where the show goes next. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the DVD edition.

When a series is cancelled, there's inevitably the concern that you'll be left with an unresolved cliff-hanger instead of closure.

With T:TSCC that's not the case; while characters live on and events continue (and short of seeing the final victory for either human or machine, how could it be otherwise?) there is full closure and the story called "the Sarah Connor Chronicles" is clearly complete as the final credits roll. Sarah's mission is done and the story is transitioning into something entirely different. In fact, the neat (if swift) closure makes me wonder if the programme makers knew they were getting the axe, before they'd finished production.

Either that, or they planned to morph the franchise into the "John Connor Chronicles". I'd have loved to see it continue in that vein, because the really interesting parts of the "Sarah Connor Chronicles" were not in fact about Sarah Connor at all, but about her family and their circle: John Connor; Cameron, his cyborg "sister" and protector, played by Summer Glau; John's uncle-from-the-future Derek Reese; and their various friends, associates and romantic interests. The series has its fair share of terminator-on-human and terminator-on-terminator combat, but it's not really an action show. It's about the characters, including some who are cyborgs or AIs, and as such it inevitably makes you think (not necessarily deeply, but still) about what it is to be human.

We see John developing into the man he will (must) be -- from a schoolkid to a young man who is ready for his future role.

Format: DVD
I watched the first episode of this show with some trepidation and with no particular feeling that I would become hooked. As the third Terminator movie had been a struggle to watch all the way through, I felt that the franchise was doomed to suffer diminishing returns, and it was hard to see how a tv spin-off might work. Such concerns disappeared quickly as the show makes the breathtakingly brilliant decision to ignore the third movie (effectively creating a new time-line where it never happened) and so it becomes a direct sequel to the events of the second film. Having got this set-up right the show then proceeds in a logical way that doesn't contradict the movies, but also moves the story on in an entertaining way. In fact it never lets up the excitement through its short (due to the writers' strike) first season and even if the second season slows the pace, the innovation is still continual.

The show neatly creates a situation in which Sarah, played by a new actress who rapidly makes the role her own, and her son John are transported to 2007 where they continue to run from the bad terminators who are sent back in time to kill them. They are aided in their fight by the best character in the series of good terminator Cameron, and so slowly they start to tire of running and they seek to turn the tables on Skynet...

Initially the show has something of a monster of the week format (with terminators). But before that can become repetitive the second series creates a mythology of its own with new characters and complex time-travel scenarios that build on the concepts of predestined fate that were at the heart of the original film (and the Outer Limits stories on which it was based).

The blu ray release of Terminator SCC here is pretty good. You get featurettes showing behind the scenes, making of, goofs, commentary with the cast and crew etc. Picture is great as you would expect. Audio is good too but there's no DTS True HD Master Audio track in this....I don't know if that is customary on entire seasons but I know it is for movies. Nevertheless the audio quality is very high - lows, mids and highs very well represented with everything sounding crisp, clear and vibrant.

Really what this is going to boil down to is whether or not you liked the show when it aired or if you are a Terminator fan in general - not to mention if it's worth the money - but me not being the biggest Terminator fan in the world and yet loving this show from day 1 through to it's untimely end this blu ray set chronicling the entire run of Terminator SCC is very much worth the money if you want superior image and audio quality. And of course if you liked the show to begin with, and perhaps even if you're one who abandoned it might be worth returning to because this was most definitely an under appreciated show for what it was, rather than what it wasn't.

For me though, well worth the money I spent.

There are a couple of negatives though, both rather minor in my opinion but worth mentioning, firstly there's a couple of specific spots on the release where the feed will stick for a second or two. And lastly the outer slip case is extremely tight fitting for these two blu ray cases, the resistance is incredible - you literally have to grip tight and shake violently or risk tearing the cardboard slip case in syphoning the cases out. I ended up throwing my cardboard slip case away in the end. Shame really because it was a nice collect case for the boxes but for the poxy fit.

Other than that though, top stuff. Well worth the money.
