(S02E18) Viewers, come back! The water is safe. The "Sad Sarah" storyline is officially over, and The Sarah Connor Chronicles has found its groove once again. Last week, we said goodbye to Sarah's depressing head-trip with an engaging episode that ended with a shocker (well, I was shocked anyway). This week, John, Sarah, Derek and Ellison struggled to answer that eternal Terminator question: Can metal be trusted?

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Ourselves Alone

(S02E17) It feels good to have our show back, doesn't it? After taking a mostly tedious three-episode trip inside of Sarah Connor's head, TSCC returned with a solid ep that addressed Riley's suicide attempt and featured Cameron getting a little twitchy. "Ourselves Alone" was light on Skynet conspiracy theories, but it delivered some definite payoff for one of the season's most talked about plot lines. Click through for the spoils.

TV Squad Ten: TV's hottest female non-humans

Would I date a homicidal robot? Do I find a one-eyed cartoon mutant attractive? Is kissing a sexy demon worth losing years of my life?

Those were some of the questions I had to ask myself while writing this list.

There are many non-human women on TV – demons, vampires, machines and Real Housewives – but not all of them are hot. And what makes someone hot? I side with Stanley from The Office who once said that a "hot" woman is healthy, sexy, pretty and strong. I'd also say that brains, maturity and passion should be in the mix -- even if that passion is for killing monsters or blowing up evil cyborgs. Click through for a list of the hottest robots, aliens and "abnormals" currently on TV.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Some Must Watch, While Some Must Sleep

(S02E16) This was, according to show creator Josh Friedman, the last of a trilogy of episodes devoted to examining Sarah Connor herself. If you're like me, the show has been trying your patience since it's return two weeks ago. I'm not against introspection or character examination, but so far these "back nine" eps haven't been too thrilling. "Some Must Sleep" was a lot more compelling than last week's ep, "Desert Cantos," but that's not saying much.

John and Cameron remained in the background, Derek, Ellison, John Henry and the Weaverbot took the week off, and most of the ep featured Lena Headey walking around in pajamas. Like I said – not too thrilling. Things picked up in the end, but I found the unreliable narrative a little distracting. It was confusing trying to figure out what was real and what was a dream. I'm sure that's what Friedman was going for here – he wanted to truly put us inside Sarah Connor's scrambled head. Well, it worked in that sense, but it didn't really translate to great TV.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Desert Cantos

(S02E15) Have you ever been to a funeral? They're not usually very thrilling. All that awkward silence, standing around, and the hard-to-watch mourning will deflate anyone's day. So why set an episode of Sarah Connor at a funeral?

I guess the writers wanted to remind us about the Skynet war death toll. It's high. We get it. Can we move on now?

Terminator's Summer Glau to guest on Big Bang Theory

summer glau terminator sarah connor chroniclesI have mixed feelings about CBS' The Big Bang Theory. Being a geek, it feels a little strange watching a sitcom that wants to cater to you and make fun of you at the same time. I find myself wincing at the lazy geek caricatures on display every time I watch, but for every wince, there's always a laugh. The show is funny, and I like that none of the plots ever really seem to add up to much. It's all about the jokes, and it reminds me of Seinfeld in that way.

Now I have another reason to watch. Summer Glau, Cameron from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, will guest star in an upcoming episode of TBBT. Glau won't be playing a robot – that would be too cool – she'll be playing herself. From what I can decipher from other Interweb rumblings, the episode will feature Sheldon, Leonard and crew somehow rerouting Glau's train trip to San Francisco in order to meet her. (Reminds me of Raj and Wolowitz's plan to find the Next Top Model house from last night's ep.) The episode airs March 9.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Good Wound

(S02E14) After a two-month break, The Sarah Connor Chronicles returned to kick off the final nine episodes of the season (series?). Last December's mid-season ender, "Earthlings Welcome Here," was high on mystery and good character moments, but it felt a little drab, especially after all of the exciting developments of the previous five episodes. "The Good Wound" was more absorbing, and it reminded me a lot of the original Terminator movie. The stakes were high, but almost every scene felt quiet and intimate. The return – if you can call it that – of one of the first film's classic characters had a lot to do with that intimate feeling. Click through for the spoilery details.

Summer Glau talks about the future of The Sarah Connor Chronicles

summer glau terminator the sarah connor chronicles interviewIn a conference call with media outlets this week, Summer Glau said she was "shocked" after reading the script for the season two finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Glau, who plays the Terminator Cameron on the FOX series, told reporters that she was also "a little sad" but excited about the upcoming season ender. "I think everybody is going to be shocked at what happens at the end of this season," she said.

Her reaction might have something to do with the possible death of a major character. Series creator Josh Friedman has spoken publicly about possibly killing off a character from the show in an upcoming episode, even saying that the current season should end with "one more good character death." (Feel free to place your bets on who might bite it in the comments.)

Friedman, who also took part in the conference call, didn't reveal any spoilers about the possible death, but he and Glau did discuss some details about the show's return on February 13, including the show's move to Fridays, the possibility of a third season, and Cameron's love for John Connor.

Terminator producer talks time travel, fans, character deaths - VIDEO

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 16th 2009 6:08PM
terminator richard t jonesNo clips or spoilers this week. The second Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles video podcast features a candid 13-minute interview with executive producer Josh Friedman. He starts the interview by saying "I will never do another television show that has to do with time travel." At the end of the interview, he says season two might conclude with "one more good character death." Place your bets now, folks. My money's on Riley.

Friedman also talks about fan comments (they want John to grow up already), serialization vs. stand-alone episodes, and his relationship with the cast. I especially enjoyed his comments about the show's time travel issues and about actor Richard T. Jones, who plays James Ellison on the show.

Top TV Stories of 2008: The decline of Heroes

Heroes Cast

I'm sure that many of us could go round and round over the quality of the episodes in this latest chapter of Heroes. If you're following along with the weekly reviews, you've no doubt seen it play out in the comments. The thing that is a little harder to argue is the ratings. Over these last few months, the one time flagship NBC drama has seen its numbers drop to drastic levels. Put another way, if Heroes was a space ship, and dropping ratings signified an increase in speed, the show has gone plaid.

Fox saves Sarah...Connor, that is

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 18th 2008 3:32PM
Sarah CLet's hear it for Fox TV! No, you don't need to check my meds. I'm seriously giving a shout-out to Fox for their latest move. Despite so-so ratings, Fox has renewed Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for the remainder of the 2008-9 season. This says that Fox understands that shows -- especially the sci-fi genre -- need time to develop and grow an audience.

The greatest sci-fi success of all time, Star Trek, struggled for three years on NBC in the 1960s where the network was very frustrated with the show because it wasn't a ratings smash. Imagine, if you will, how much NBC might have made if they had stuck with ST and mined the cult success that exploded into a cultural phenomenon?

Press Kits Unwrapped: FOX's The Sarah Connor Chronicles

by Keith McDuffee, posted Dec 7th 2007 1:54PM
sarah connor chronicles keyAfter quite a quiet spell from the impressive (or maybe "overdone") press kits, FOX stirs things up once again with a press kit for their new upcoming show, The Sarah Connor Chronicles (starting Jan. 13 at 8PM EST).

Last week the TV Squad offices received a "mysterious" key in an envelope (it would have been more mysterious had the other side of the key not said 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles' on it). Along with the key was a note from ... John Connor (dun dun duuuun!), telling us to be on the lookout for another package. Wow, could the key, like, maybe open whatever he's sending?

This week we got the next package. Surprise! It's a safety deposit box (actually I was surprised, as I was expecting a car). And in case we didn't keep that all-important key sent last week, John was nice enough to tape another key to the top of the box. Apparently Terminators are afraid of keys.
