Since the new FOX show “Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles” is premiering in three weeks, FOX is starting to amp up the promotion and in doing so, they’ve provided me with a few clips and some trailers to try and get you to tune in.
As I said a few times already, I managed to see the pilot and thought it was a lot of fun. Mind you, the show wasn’t “Lost,” but it was a solid pilot that had great action from beginning to end. And the show absolutely made me want to watch the next episode, so they must have done something right.
While Fox might be a bit nervous as they’ve spent a lot of money on the pilot and the show, I don’t think they’ve got much to worry about as the writers strike is still going and many of the shows airing in January and beyond is reality based. There’s not much else out there, and since they’ve got at least 8 shows in the can, they’ll be able to figure out if the show is worth bringing back after the strike ends.
Anyway, enough of my words. Here’s the synopsis I was provided and the clips. The only thing to know about the clips is that I wasn’t sent super high quality stuff like I normally get, so one of two of them won’t be as sharp as I normally post. Sorry, I did the best I could do….
At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah vanquished the liquid metal Terminator sent from the future to kill her teenage son, John. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future, and the present, could attack at any moment.
THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES reveals what happens when SARAH (Lena Headey, The Brothers Grimm, 300) stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life, and perhaps the world. Her son, 15-year-old JOHN CONNOR (Thomas Dekker, Heroes), knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that he’s told is his destiny. John finds himself inextricably drawn to CAMERON (Summer Glau, Serenity, The Unit), an enigmatic and otherworldly student at his high school, who soon proves to be much more than his confidante she assumes the role of Sarah and John’s fearless protector. On their trail are not only threats from the future, but an intelligent and tough FBI agent, JAMES ELLISON (Richard T. Jones, Judging Amy), who soon becomes a powerful ally.
The show premieres Sunday, Jan. 13 8/7c & Monday, Jan. 14 9/8c.
