Wow.  What a rocking first episode.  Full of twists and turns.

I am a little uneasy about Cameron being unreliable.  It’s too much tension for me.  I would rather know who the good guys are, who are the bad guys.  I hope this story line concludes with her repair.

Speaking of bad guys, I really loved the new villain, the Irish (?) female computer corporation CEO (EDIT: Catherine Weaver), who purchased the Turk.  I like the idea that a T1000 reappears, but I kind of wish Skynet was still conceived by and built by human beings, along the theme of the inevitability of our fate.  Nonetheless, this is a very intriguing development.

I was really stressed out in this episode, our heroes were pushed to the edge and then some.

Poor Agent Elison and the burden he has to bear!  I like that we got an answer why Chromartie let him live — to lead Chromartie to the Connors.

Is Summer Gone ?????

Posted in blogs, Gripe, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Spoilers, Summer Glau with tags on March 5, 2008 by thissalesmanslife

Is our favorite teeniantor -> Summer Glau gone?

I recently heard a nasty rumor that some who’s name rhymes with Woss Jedon is trying to lure our favorite season to a new show. Right now just rumors. I’ve also heard about a dancer type movie may take up a lot of her time.

Does anyone know when Fox will renew their shows and does Summer have an extension in her contract?

I for one would think that her “death” and lack of return could spell the end for the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Somebody help….tell me the rumors are just that.

Tell me that Cameron ….(Spoilers)

regenerates from the bomb explosion and is back good as new.

Please Tell me….

Where do I know that guy from? TermiNerd looks at Dean Winters

Posted in Cloyd Dixon, Dean Winters, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Spoilers, The Queen's Gambit with tags , on February 12, 2008 by thissalesmanslife

By now you’ve seen “Charley Dixon” aka Sarah’s former boyfriend/Medic, on several episodes of SCC.

If you are like me, you see that guy and ask yourself “Where do I know him from?”

So after some personal confirmation that indeed that was him in that one show. Here is a list of where you might have caught Dean Winters on the Tube.

Dean was Tommy Gavin’s cop brother Johnny Gavin on USA Network’s “Rescue Me” – great stuff

Dean was also Detective Brian Cassidy on NBC’s “Law and Order SVU

He also found fame on HBO’s “OZ” as Ryan O’Reil.

Dean Winters has some serious acting chops and I’ve found him solid in everything I’ve seen him in.

Take a look over here at IMDB to see his other gigs.

Episode V Lands

Posted in Fourth Freedom Fighter, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Spoilers, Summer Glau, The Queen's Gambit, Theories, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on February 11, 2008 by nerdchieftain

There was lots of plot development in Episode V.

The following is a bunch of random ravings and observations.

John met his new car shop buddy… Morris. His lab partner / potential love interest is Sheryl Winters. And his lost uncle is Derek Reese.

Agent Kester now has some hard evidence: the triple 8’s left forearm, severed at the elbow joint. Complete with artificial blood, fake flesh, and (ta-da!) a metal endoskeleton.

The car chase was really fun, with a new car chase twist: Terminator wrestling in the back makes driving much harder.

So, how old is John Connor?

Posted in Gripe, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Summer Glau with tags , , on January 27, 2008 by nerdchieftain

In T2, John Connor was 10.  He was born Feb 1985.

So, on Sep 9, 19992000, the date of time travel, he was 14.6 15.6 years old.  I suppose this makes him the right age to be a Freshman.  And for his Senior Gift, he will prevent Judgement Day.  Or his mom will… or something.

I’m not one to gripe about consistency, as you can see in time travel thread. 

But this one is bugging me.  I suppose it bothers me because I had the timeline all wrong in my head until I went over to the terminator wiki and looked at the dizzying time plot article.

Anyone else having trouble imagining John (actor age 20) and Cameron (actress age 16 26) as 14-year old Freshman?  They look like Juniors at least to me.

Of course, Sarah Connor doesn’t look a day past 28, and the character is in fact 32 or 41 (depending on conflicing birth days in the films.)  Of course, Lena Headey is 31 in RL.

Summer Glau -A good choice for the Teen-minator?

Posted in Sarah Connor Chronicles, Summer Glau with tags , on January 23, 2008 by thissalesmanslife

I want to here Raves and Rants about Summer Glau’s casting as the Cameron character on the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Is it a good choice? Would you have gone a different direction?

Is her character to close too the Serenity character “River” ?

I think in the first 2 episodes I liked it but in the recent 3rd ……well, I’m not sure.

I welcome your thoughts.
