So last summer a copy of the “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” was floating around the ‘net and I had a chance to see it. It was awesome, and ever since then, in my head, I’ve pictured Linda Hamilton playing the Sarah Conner part. But as they’ve been advertising it, I’ve realized it’s not Linda. I’ve recently had a chance to re-watch it, and I know when I first saw it I knew it wasn’t Linda, but since then I started thinking it was her…

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles  - The Complete First Season Warner Home VideoIf you haven’t seem it it’s great. I’m interested to see how they are going to turn the 47 minute pre-pilot into a two night premier. A few minor edits can really ruin a great show (I still can’t believe how they ruined the pilot to “The Big Bang Theory” with just a few edits, but I digress…).

Thomas Dekker does an excellent job as John Conner, you’ve seen him as Zach the flying kid on Heroes.

WARNING – Minor Spoiler below…And the beautiful, wonderful, kick-ass Summer Glau just gives me chills when she says the famous line “Come with me if you want to live!”. It makes me want to go back and watch Firefly and Serenity (as River Tam); you’ve also seen her on The 4400 as Tess (and on The Unit as Crystal Burns, but I must have stopped watching it before that).

I just saw the Heroes novel Saving Charlie at the bookstore. It looked pretty neat, but then Time Travel usually is. It’s the story of Hiro when he travels to the past to save Charlie (“Memory Retention Girl”), the waitress from the diner in Season One. It’s looked really good, but the parts that dealt with him and his fathers issues seemed like they’d get old fast.

I think that the story creates some alternate timelines and undesirable futures as he alters things to save her. I’m thinking since it is a mainstream TV show adaption, it might not get too complicated which might make it an easy enjoyable read. I just couldn’t convince myself to cough up $24 for it, even when I had a few gift cards I could have used….

They left you hanging with some new story lines but they completed a story, I really applaud them for that. I’m so sick of the never ending (non) stories.

I was pretty happy with Heroes – Season 1, a tale of life, sacrifice, hope and (of course) saving the world. It’s pretty hard to get a good super-hero show to stick on prime-time, so I can deal with the minuses. What I really liked about it was they ended the story and those that did save the world were really heros. I was surprised at all the death the last few episodes, but at least now you don’t have to worry too much about those story-lines…

And how about those previews!!!! Harry Potter, THe Fantastic Four, The Silver Surfer and (did you wait until the very end?) the Bionic Woman! And I’m kinda wondering what extras are going to be on the DVD…

So, possible mysteries for the future: (semi-spoliers below, if you haven’t watched it, don’t read them, although they don’t directly give anything away)

  • When Candice was knocked out, what that what she really looked like?
  • Is Molly cured?
  • Who can see Molly when she looks for them?
  • How does Molly’s power work? Does any atlas work? Does the scale matter?
  • What’s Grandma’s power?
  • Who’s going to look after Molly?
  • How screwed up is Claire’s Mom mind (and where is she)?
  • Does Hiro become his own own (self-fulfilling) hero?
  • How long will Hiro’s new story-line last? (Not too long, I think/hope)
  • Will Syler be back? (I hope not, he was the lamest part)
  • What was/is Charles’ power?
  • When Peter was unconscious was he in the past?
  • Will any of the injured people die? (probably not, IMHO)

    Save the Cheerleader, save the world!Woo Hoo! Heroes is going to get a second season!

    They do try to do too many of the Six Degrees/Lost-type crossovers but otherwise as a weekly superhero/scifi show on mainstream TV it’s pretty close to the best show along those lines I’ve seen in a long time…Here’s an exclusive preview from the January 3rd episode of the Tonight show…
