The Sarah Connor Chronicles is terminated - for real this time

Sarah Connor Chronicles canceled
How many times have we Internet bloggos reported the cancellation of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?

It seems like the series was killed and resurrected a dozen times during its second season. At this point, it's hard to believe Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello who is telling us that the show is dead and will not rise again no matter how much its fans kick and scream. But it looks like Fox has officially canceled TSCC.

If this news is true, at least we can say that TSCC went out with some major cajones, delivering a twist ending that surprised and shocked the hell out of even the most die hard fans.

Still, I'm sad to see it go. The show hooked me during its short first-season run, but its more challenging and rewarding second season turned me into a full-blown Terminator fanboy. It's a shame that millions of viewers never saw what turned out to be a very compelling sci-fi series with a surprising amount of ambition and depth -- and kick ass robot-on-robot brawls.

Fox once again shows their wisdom of canceling a show that does not aim for the lowest common singing/dancing denominator. "Stupid people" are ruining TV as we know it leaving the rest of us to scour torrents for the slight chance of seeing a good show.

It's unfortunate that this show got terminated. After the 1 season was not a lock to be renewed I was ok with it but after rewatching the 1st season on blu ray and watching the past season I'm really going to miss this show.

Josh Friedman released a statement for the fans.

Dollhouse was interesting in the beginning but turned out to be a lame, let down in the end. not interested anymore. TSCC started slow and got stronger and stronger and very compelling storywise. couldn't wait for 3rd season! Terrible call by execs not recognizing the progression of the shows. Dollhouse will flop next year and TSCC would have broken out into a hit.

When will FOX stop breaking the nerd fanboy heart? Again we are let down by this station's inability to believe in something worthwhile and give it time. Instead they give shows like "till death" and "Prisonbreak" all the seasons in the world and then final movies to wrap things up. What the heck FOX?! I really hope SciFi (SyFy?) picks this show up and also resurrects Jericho another amazing show that ended too early.

I tried to like this show and at times I did. The John Connor character ruined it. His woe is me attitude and inability to stay out of trouble was tiring and predictable.
Too many plot lines started with. " John whatever you do don't do that/go there".

That irritated me too...but it ended when his girlfriend was murdered. Then, he manned up and became a leader. Truly great television.

I wouldn't mind a couple of straight to dvd movies a year from Warners, could be a great idea.
