Clips from the Sarah Connor Chornicles - VIDEO
I'm a casual fan of the Terminator movies, but I have to admit that this new series looks really, really cool. The series stars Lena Headey in the titular role; Thomas Dekker as her son, John; and Richard T. Jones and Summer Glau.
The new series takes place after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Sarah is forced to protect her son from enemies from the future who want to make sure he doesn't succeed in ultimately destroying the machines who themselves are bent on destroying mankind. Ooh, that's heavy, but it's also the kind of ultra-violent escapism that fan boys and fan girls alike love to see. One of the things that set the Terminator movies apart from other big shoot-em ups is that it had that element of real (not forced) human drama, and I think, based on these clips, this new series will have the same.
The new series will air Sundays at 9:00 p.m. starting spring of 2008. Clips after the jump.
