FOX have gone and done it again -Thank You Fox ...NOT!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Complete Second Season [DVD] (DVD)
I cannot believe Fox have gone and done it again. Yes they have cancelled yet another classic Sci Fi show, which in just two seasons already has a cult following. (Oh Yes, they did it with FIREFLY after just one season).
How they could cancel this is beyond me. Even with Fox's poor reputation for this type of thing, how could they overlook such a gem of a series?
Being an avid fan of the 3 Terminator films, I was not even going to watch this for fear of spoiling the whole Terminator effect.
However, Series One started with a Wow, and Series Two continued, and matured with ever improving performances from all of the main characters (save Riley). Sarah Connor and Cameron (the mesmerising Summer Glau) just got better and better, and all of the main characters (just dig John Henry singing the 'Donald' song... almost chilling) really developed to leave viewers JUST WANTING MORE at the end of the second series, Step forward FOX to ignore the thousands of viewers who really supported this show to pull the plug. PLEASE CHECK THE WEB TO SEE HOW INTENSE MANY,MANY PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT THIS SHOW. Par for the course with the whole FOX organisation, alas. This was the only show I just had to see each week.(No doubt Fox will have the dosh for such brain challenging shows as America has got talent or some other garbage...Don't think I will help put pennies in the Fox media trough in future...perhaps they will listen if enough people make their feelings heard...

I agree it is a shame to cancel such a great series, at least it did make it to the end of the second season befor Fox pulled the plug, Firefly was still halfway throught production when Fox canned it.

Two seasons isn't too bad in TV land. It's great, but not mindblowingly great like Firefly. It still deserves another season though.

Couldn't agree more - I arrived a skeptic but was completely won over, and found this to be my replacement viewing when BSG came to an end. I'm amazed how within the constraints of the story already told they managed to tell a story convincingly, tautly, and above all with depth - never thought I would care about these characters so much.
Shame on Fox for cancelling.

Facts are though, nobody watched this show. The first show benefitted from there being very little else around due to the writers strike. The second season didn't have the luxury and just had too many average episodes which saw viewing figures plummet. I wish they'd at least do a movie to finish it off though, because while I thought the shows quality dipped far too often, then cliffhanger was top notch.

I agree with all of this, and I don't blame Fox for cancelling as the Terminator franchise and cost of the show (though they could afford it comfortably) would have been quite high, and at the end of the day the show had the audience on pilot and it slowly frittered away over the course of 2 seasons - why ? I really don't know because the show didn't suck at all. But it was quite different than one would perhaps expect given the pace and tone of the movies. Which I also think played a part in this show's downfall - the movies - Terminator isn't really topical any more because the last 2 movies DID suck.....and what came out during this shows pre season run ? T4. Ahem, yeah. Bye bye SCC. Show was great in my opinion. Clearly missed. Obvious victim of circumstances.
