In a distant future, Tetsuro is a human boy who wants his body replaced with a robotic one. This is possible, but to do so he has to reach the Immortal Planet onboard the space train Galaxy Express 999. Maetel, a beautiful and mysterious blonde woman dressed in Russian style, joins him in the long journey through space. Every episode sees our heroes arriving in a new planet's space train station.
Firstly, it has nothing to do with that abortion of a movie called Terminator Salvation. Its just a side story that has almost nothing to do with the Terminator characters from the movies or TV show. In the last episode they mention John Conner once. I like that it is a new story with new characters, sooooo tired of ARRRRNAld.
The animation appears based on the half-life game engine. It very much looks like a video game circa 2005. But they did create some nice graphics and bump maps. Its about as good as you could do with that engine so I didn't deduct any stars for that, but its not the greatest graphics and of course would be much better if made today.
The plot of the story is creative and new to the Terminator World. The suspence is well done and the various terminator machines hunting the main characters keep you on the edge of your seat.
My main beef with the show is the use of the term "ghost". Our primative society just can't seem to let go of archaic concepts and story tellers keep regurgitating the same concepts again and again. There are no ghosts. The person they call ghost was fairly easy to find.
I do think the Terminator machines and Skynet would have evolved defenses against the radio frequency override that is the Macguffin of the plot. But if you can get passed that, it is a decent fun short 6 episode web series.
UPDATE: The other review mentions the Blair character is in T4. I didn't remember her. Though it might be that I was repressing the memory of Terminator Salvation altogether.
Using in game graphics to tell a story form the Terminator world, after Skynet took over, this short 6 episodes focus on Blair Williams, a character that is later seen in T4: Salvation (timeline wise).
Considering the means and the time, I say: good work. By far not perfect but the effort was worth it and filled in some backround info on Blair Williams.
