TV Show: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 2, Ep. 9: Complications

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles – Ep. 9: Complications stands out for two reasons: the first is that a character is faced with their younger self (and what they will become) and the second is the revelation that Terminators were taught how to talk and interrogate humans by a human, a convict no less. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles continues to crank out the good, compelling ideas.

Seeing the Terminators in the shadows during the integration was great. It is the little things that are pushing this series forward in the right direction.

  • I just watched this week’s ep 10. It just keeps getting better. I’ve forgotten all about those earlier, lackluster eps of Season 2.

  • I saw ep 10 as well. Not bad. Flawed but not bad.

    I liked the circular occurrence in ep.9. The fact that the lifer causes his own sentence by going back in time was real good.

  • Partially. Your speculation is partially accurate. I’m writing the ep. 10 review now.

    Do you think that we’ll get another season of SCC? The first couple of episodes this season were bad, but I’m getting excited now. Though I would’ve loved to see the end of Cromartie…

    I can’t wait to see the next episode. The teaser that posed the question “How long have Terminators been walking among us?” and showed the old photo… That is just too cool man. Too cool

  • I think so. I hope so. They are moving it to Fridays in February so I’m guessing that means another season.

    I liked the first eps of this season, as you can see in my reviews of them.

    I would have liked to see the end of Cromartie as well.

    Fridays would be cool for me, but I think that might spell the end of the show. It would seem like a move would be a last ditch effort to draw in new fans, and I just don’t see huge audiences on Friday nights.

    What is the deal with Shirley Mansons character? I thought it would be cool to have another terminator kicking ass every week, but she hasn’t done much in recent weeks. I would love to see a little more of her using Ellison to find “targets” and then going out and Terminating them. That would be cool. Not enough terminators, even though I am enjoying the drama.

    One thing is for sure though. I’m glad they are finally making John Conner a little tougher, not just some whiney little kid. He was so weak in the first season, he needs to kick ass.

  • Well, Connor has killed his first human being so I would say he has been toughened up significantly.

    Shirley Mansons was one of the best casting choices for the show, hands down. She is great as a T-1000. I thought she would suck being a first time actress and all but she’s good. I loved seeing her Terminator learn how to show affection to its daughter and adapt.

    After the Friday move, there probably wouldn’t be a season after that. People go out on Friday night. Fans of the show will Tivo it or download it from the net, the ratings will drop and the show will be canceled.

    It was good to see John get his first kill. And I think it really is creating some good drama, how he is dealing with it. I love Shirley Manson, I just want more of her.

    Hopefully the show goes out on a high note.
