The time: today. The stakes: all our tomorrows. A nascent AI, assisted by droids, continues to edge toward world domination and the ruin of humankind. It accepts no limits. It fears no one. Except John Connor. The machines know John, now 16, is the future head of the resistance. They know he is growing in abilities. They must find and terminate him. But Sarah Connor is there, protecting and instructing her son as he becomes the man he’s destined to be. The hunt is on in a season of powerful revelations, breathless pursuits and bravura effects. A mysterious 3-dot symbol, a girlfriend for John, ZeiraCorp. Season 2 is locked, loaded, ready to amaze.
Things blow up. Someone you think is a human turns out to be a shape-shifting Terminator. There are confusing forays through time and discussions about what happened when in which version of the past and/or future. But really, the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles--unfortunately the final season of the series--is about family, connections, and the things we do to protect the ones we love. Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) has an especially rough road, nearly dying and becoming obsessed with a three-dot symbol and detours through a world of UFO obsessives. John Connor (Thomas Dekker), a.k.a. the guy who will grow up to lead humanity's resistance to the hated machines, gets tough and gets a girlfriend. His uncle Derek (Brian Austin Green) gets a girl as well, and the women in their lives turn out to have a surprising connection. Cameron (Summer Glau), the Terminator sent to protect John, suffers some damage and reveals some surprisingly human secrets of her own as her relationship with John gets more emotional and complicated. Shirley Manson (lead singer of Garbage) joins the cast as Catherine Weaver, an icy executive ,suffice it to say that a familiar (and threatening) face shows up in her company. This is a fitting sendoff for an ambitious show. --Stephanie Reid-SimonsSee all Product Description

Rarely did a made-for-TV show make such an impression on me (Firefly comes to mind, the first season of 24, the 'Wilson's Heart' epsiode on House, and 'Long Term Parking' in Season 4 of the Sopranos).
Generally excellent acting. Who would have thought that Brian Austin Green - ex-BH90210 - could really act? Who would have thought that Garbage singer Shirley Manson would be convincing as a Scottish ... eeehhh .... 'business woman'.
Consistently surprising, shocking, creepy and touching storyline. Mindboggling ending. And Summer Glau, oh boy.
So, shame on the geniuses at Fox for cancelling this. Metal terminator spikes through their heads, all of them.
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...
The acting at times is a bit suspect but again there are some excellent performances from the cast. I have honestly enjoyed every episode of this program, it is original, thought provoking, entertaining and challanges all senses. It is exiting, has a sense of humour and well made.
It is the worst decision ever made in the history of entertainment to axe this show, Fox should hang their head in shame. The popularity of TSCC has been vertually by word of mouth in the UK. The promotion of the show has been woeful, and again Fox are to blame.
You must get this just to experience something outside the box and highly clever.
Plot and characters are excellent with all the regulars from season one even better than before and new characters adding well to the mix, Shirley Manson (ex lead singer with Garbage) doing a particualrly good job. No one is safe and there are a few jaw-dropping developments. Best watched a few episodes at a time, matches Galactica in the way you just have to watch one more episode!
Picture and sound are excellent, well worth the extra few quid for the blu-ray.
The first series introduced new characters including the beautiful yet otherworldly Summer Glau as a reprogrammed Terminator with the ability for emotional insight despite having no emotions herself, John's uncle and former resistance fighter Derek Reese who provides John with a link to the father he never knew, and James Ellison - an FBI agent drawn into the Connors' world and forced to reconcile it with his Christian faith when his efforts to catch Sarah lead him into the path of seemingly unstoppable T-888 Cromartie.
The fast pace and clever storylines of the first series, which ran for just nine episodes, led this second series to be one of the most highly anticipated next series of any science fiction series. For several episodes in it continues with the pace and action you'd come to expect. New characters are introduced, by far the best being Shirley Manson (from the band Garbage) as a liquid metal terminator who has established herself as the CEO of an advanced research facility called ZeiraCorp. Cromartie's character is taken in an unexpected direction, and the developing "John Henry" storyline that runs throughout the latter half of these 22 episodes is genuinely intriguing.Read more ›

better by far than the T3/T4/T5/T6?
They'd've been smarter to scrap the 3,4 & 5 and make more of these. Even better than Game of Thrones, eh,?
Love all the Terminator movies & the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Wish that they had carried on making them..Published 7 months ago by Lara Williams
