Review: Some Must Watch, While Some Must Sleep

While during the first minutes of that episode it seemed to be just another non relevant one, it actually turned out to be another masterpiece following the way of that "Allison from Palmdale" that amazed us at the beginning of this season, only better.

This episode deepened into the tormented and complex character of Sarah, making a strong point in that of which, unlike the first one, this season is intended for adult viewers, and that it isn't a show of nothing but shoots and explosions, but a far more complex and meaningful story about a woman who cannot allow herself to be disturbed nor weak unless she knows that's exactly what she's turning into and she knows she can't help it.

Besides the omnipresent shadow of Skynet, the great deal here is her inner fight against her fears and weaknesses while the threat of terminators are just her circumstances.

This show has proved itself to be worth-seeing, with an unusual combination of drama and action, in a time when ratings forces shows to adapt to dumber minds or face cancellation.

Thank you. I like this review far more than the other one. It is called the Sarah Connor Chronicles...not pretty robotic girl and the annoying boy she has the protect...
It just took her strength to a whole another level...she's a bad mofo...annoying boy would be so dead without her...I love that they had real fight scenes this epi...rather than a god like object against human...it's obvious who's gonna win that one...

I think this was a great episode if you like Sarah's character.
I don't. I'm bored by her. She's kind of one-dimensional at this point and flat-out not that likeable. John and Cameron are what really draw me to this show. Not in an "omg-will-dey-or-wont-dey!?!?!11?!1" kind of way, but because I think John is being portrayed extremely well as a struggling kid who's thrust into a situation he doesn't really understand and isn't prepared for, and has to grow up way too fast. Cameron's cool because of the way she's constantly messing around trying to understand humans. It's not always obvious what she's up to, but she's clearly up to something, and dangit, I wanna know what it is.
The past couple of episodes haven't been BAD per se, but just focused on a subject I'm really not that interested in. JMHO.
