Sarah Connor Chronicles- The mother of all destiny (eppi1&2)


In the midst of a coming dry spell on television a new FOX series featuring a continuation of the first two Terminator movies provides a shred of light. Personally my hopes for this project first took off when I heard David Nutter was producing and directing (the guy who directed the Supernatural pilot). Plus I always had a childhood crush on the Terminator series.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles revolve around the mother and son we left to their fates back in T2. Sarah (here played by Lena Heady, and back in the movie portrayed by Linda Hamilton ) and her kid John (played by Thomas Dekker, you’ll recognize his face from the first season of Heroes) are now fighting to survive and remain under the radar. Sarah herself has spent time at a mental institution for telling the truth about the future (machines take over, 3 billion dead, ladida, Arnold-machines saying things like ‘I’ll be back’). In the pilot mommy Connor freaks out after a dream where John ends up shot, and ups and moves the little family from her would-be fiance.

So they head to Texas where John goes to school and meets an odd but pretty girl. The next day, voila, the step-in teacher rips up his own leg, pulls out a gun, and starts shooting at our boy, the future leader of mankind… Or something along those lines. Actually he shoots the pretty girl too, only she turns out to be bit more mechanical than averege and saves John from a messy parking lot death by ramming a truck into the teacher from the future.

Right, so basically they start running, end up time travelling over to 2007 (yep, story starts back in 99), and the adventure and strive to make sure Sygate (that badass computer system that pretty much brings about apocalypse) is never created begins. Oh the fun.

I have to be honest. Apart from the robots, the flashy eyes, the gun fights, and the general ass kicking the show promises, the biggest draw-in for me was the fact that the story centered on this little trio of characters with so much potential beyond the ordinary cliches of drama. This is an action series with humanity.

Cameron, robogirl played by Summer Glau, does an good job so far as a slightly more human machine. In the fight scenes you can catch glimpses of the actress failing to not blink or reacting instinctively to a blow, but at the same time you see those dull eyes, that focus, and the always so creepy crooking of the head in response to a statement or action that just does not entirely make sense to ‘her’.

Ah the possibilities… Obviously a romance between John and Cam aka tincan would be complicated, which is wonderful because that leaves so much more room for angst and a whole lot of fight scenes and general terminator mood. Sarah’s character has interesting depths and (!) non-depths that will be nice to explore. And of course, it is the Terminator series on TV. This can either go really pretty well or really very badly.

So far the start is rocky but with a direction. The writing seems a bit messy at times, like there is too much to explain, too much to be shown and said and done all at once to get a jump start into the real story, but overall it works and they have stayed true to the concept. The action is nicely performed. There is a good deal of speed and a whole lot of artistic qualities to the show. Now it just needs to keep getting better, and by next season this could well be a big hit.

As stated before I had a childhood crush on this series, but I really can’t recall much detail, so as far as accuracy and staying true to the movies goes I really have no clue at the moment. Will need a Terminator movie eve for that, and that just doesn’t fit into the schedule anytime soon. Feel free to drop comments on that issue though.

Oh, and the new identities thing, John explaining how his new self is from Lawrence, Kansas. Any other SPN fan who reacted to that? Just curious, really… All in all, exciting watch primarily because it has so much potential to grow into. I’ll definitely stay tuned.

Plus, check out that promo picture of Sarah (Lena Heady) holding the gun. Bad ass, and makes me proud of the girlies on screen.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
