A Short Geek Moment...


Please pause for this short Geek moment.

I have always loved the Terminator series of movies. Admittedly, I liked the first one the best, but the other two had their moments as well. I always thought that the franchise would have been helped by a movie based in the future, where John Connor was an old man, and leader of the human resistance forces. That would have been cool.
So now they’ve come up with “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
This thing has a couple of things going for it, in my mind.
First, it’s from the Terminator series… how cool is that?
Second, it has Summer Glau in it. For those of you familiar with “Firefly” and “Serenity”… really… need I say more? For those of you who are not familiar with the cancelled TV series “Firefly,” get over to Target and pick up a copy. The whole series will run you less than $20.00 and it’s worth every cent. If you’re not familiar with the movie “Serenity” which was based on the series… well, pick up a copy of the movie, while you’re getting your copy of the series. Summer plays a character named “River.”
Watch the series first. It should only take about 15 hours (with food and potty breaks… less if you hold it)

There is one thing that concerns me about “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
It’s on FOX; The network that only keeps reality programming. They only gave “Drive” 3 episodes before dropping the axe, and we don’t want to talk about what they did to “Firefly.”

So… “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” might only last long enough for us to see the pilot. So it goes…

Thank you for this short Geek moment.
