After a hugely promising debut season, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles struggled as it delved into a second flirtation with our screens. Early episodes failed to capture the pace or excitement of season one but as the season progresses, and Summer Glau, Garret Dillahunt and Brian Austin Green, playing two Terminators, one good, one bad, and Derek Reese, respectively, came into their own, it really starts to pick up. John and mother Sarah Connor take up the usual Judgement Day, but with grounded character development, clever writing and excellent action, The Sarah Connor Chronicles should have gotten far higher ratings than it received on it’s run on Fox. The third season is still up in the air, but here’s hoping they bring it back as there’s a lot of life in this series yet.
