60 minutes

At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah, John and the Terminator successfully destroy the T-1000 and the arm and computer chip from the first Terminator. Sarah and John then watch as the Terminator is lowered into a molten steel pit in an attempt to destroy all future technology that could be used to create Skynet. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous and complicated world. As fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future, and the present, could attack at any moment. Prompted by the return of the Terminators into their lives, Sarah and John decide to stop running and focus on stopping the birth of Skynet. They are aided by Cameron, a Terminator who poses as a student at John's school and whose mission is to protect John. Meanwhile, an FBI agent named James Ellison pursues Sarah and John with the belief that Sarah is deluded.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I had this DCD set for years and only watched it recently. It is a good show and sadly was cancelled way too soon. The development of John Connor is nicely portrayed and was missing so far in the movies - a kid/teenager with the knowledge of the furute has to become the leader of the resistance and mankind. This could have led to really interesting places and with the last date for J.Day in 2011, this show could have lived for another 2 or 3 seasons.
Also Summer Glau, not just because of her looks, was a great Terminator. A machine between mere machine and something more. It reminded me of Data's development thoughout TNG and the movies.
The main character, at least by the title of this show, was supposedly Sarah Connor. But not by Lena Headay's fault did that not really shine through. The title was a bad choice, but not the reason for the cancellation of this show.
So lots of potential, but cut short. Anyway, this show is like a rare gem, that is out there and obviously was under appreciated - much like "Firefly".
