She'll be back: Fox's 'Sarah Connor Chronicles'

153756__terminator_lBecause you’ve been dying to know for, like, 15 years what happened to Linda Hamilton’s Terminator character between the events depicted in the second and third movies, Fox is at last ready to oblige you with The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Alas, neither Hamilton nor the Governator are participating in the series, but the pilot is being directed by David Nutter, who shot the pilot for Terminator guru James Cameron’s Dark Angel, as well as the pilots for such hit shows as Without a Trace and Smallville. I can’t wait for such scenes as the one where Sarah tells her 14-year-old son, ”I don’t care if you’re the savior of mankind, if you don’t clean up your room, you’re grounded.” Or the one where she says, ”Stop playing Xbox all day. We’re supposed to be fighting the machines, remember?” Meanwhile, my colleague Mike Slezak wants to know whether the series will costar a lion-faced man.

    I’d love to see Lake Bell play Sarah. She’s kinda got that cute young Linda Hamilton thang going. Unless Surface didn’t get cancelled…

  • Jennifer

    Awesome! I’ll definitately be watching that.

  • Sara

    Don’t forget there was also a dog-faced man on Dark Angel. They’ve gotta work that in!

    Doesn’t this seem like a dead end? Sarah Connor dies. Plus there needs to be some sort of Terminator connection to all of this, rather than some spin-off action crap. Is James Cameron invovled?

    I get so excited when the networks greenlight projects with female main characters! We get short changed SO much. Its always “5 male lawyers and a woman” or “5 crime scene investigators and a woman”. Sure, Sarah will probably be the only female lead character, but she’s the center of the story so it is progress! I just hope the script is better than that of Dark Angel.

    What’s up with the Popwatch link to this article on the EW homepage saying “She Won’t Be Back” and the title of the article saying “She’ll Be Back”? That’s confusing.

    Perfect timing. With Buffy off the air, and now Sydney Bristow off on a deserted island raising a family, I’ve been in need of my girl kick-@$$ once a week fix. Here’s to hoping this will work.

    There are two post-T2 books written. I’ve read one, and it was pretty good. I hope it draws a little from that.
