Product Overview

The time: today. The stakes: all our tomorrows. A nascent AI, assisted by droids, continues to edge toward world domination and the ruin of humankind. It accepts no limits. It fears no one. Except John Connor. The machines know John, now 16, is the future head of the resistance. They know he is growing in abilities. They must find and terminate him. But Sarah Connor is there, protecting and instructing her son as he becomes the man he's destined to be. The hunt is on in a season of powerful revelations, breathless pursuits and bravura effects. A mysterious 3-dot symbol (do UFOs provide a clue?), a girlfriend for John (is Cameron jealous?), ZeiraCorp (can it master the renegade software called Turk?)!

This six disc collection includes all 22 episodes from The Complete Second Season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Season 2's arsenal is locked, loaded, and ready to amaze the world.

Review "Why is this happening again?" a 15-year-old John Connor (Thomas Dekker) mutters near the outset of this Fox series, proving that while he might by the future leader of a rebellion against murderous machines, he doesn't understand much at this age about Hollywood math. Credibly expanding the Terminator franchise into TV, this series faces a considerable challenge -- beginning with the usual contortions of time-travel logic -- to maintain its initial pace without devolving into silliness, but under director David Nutter and show-runner Josh Friedman, the first two hours roll a slick brand extension off this profitable assembly line...Occupying a window between T2 -- which featured the assault on a barely pubescent John -- and the 20-something version in T3, the pilot finds Sarah Connor (300's Lena Headey) vigilantly guarding her teenage son, never knowing when the next portal-popping threat from the future will send them scurrying into retreat...Fox is wisely seeking to leverage all these hormonal assets for everything they're worth, launching the show (which, with nine completed hours, is scheduled to run through early March) to benefit from heavy promotion during the NFL playoffs, as 24 has in the past. Moreover, the series will zap over to Mondays, taking up residence in an hour where Heroes's absence should free up action-hungry eyeballs...Strategically it all makes perfect sense, provided that Friedman and company can continue meeting the daunting task of oiling the tracks on this thrill ride. "No one is ever safe," Sarah tells her very-important son -- advice that's as true for a sci-fi series facing this many creative hurdles as it is for the world's eventual savior.

Review An overly familiar franchise often has about as much chance of success as a pat "star vehicle." You know, one of those shows built around someone famous in the hope that fame will bring in tons of viewers. But what usually happens is there's no real story, no real heart, no real necessity for its creation and no emotional connection to the actual star...Fox, desperate for something it makes to take hold, decided to tap into the Terminator film franchise for its newest series, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which tells the story of one very determined mother whose son, John, will grow up to lead the resistance against the machines that have taken over the world. For more information on this, just ask your local DVD store clerk, who will no doubt roll his eyes and toss three decently entertaining movies onto the counter...Only in the second episode is there any real attempt at a believable backstory (which will be too late for savvy viewers). Deep into the second episode is also the first time the writers try to inject any kind of humor (and fail). Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles could have been a lot more enjoyable and pop-culture cool if it loosened up the writing (and improved it tenfold)...Truly ambitious series, like Lost, at least put some thought into their mythology. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles relies on the movie franchise as its backbone, revealing a kind of laziness that immediately hurts this spin-off. By the time the second hour comes on Monday and tries to give these characters some dimension, you already know that the talent on both sides of the camera simply isn't there to make this a worthwhile trip...In fact, the primary plot objective of The Sarah Connor Chronicles is to run, run, run. Sarah and John and cyborg Cameron are in constant flight but forget to tell us along the way why we should care whether they get caught or killed. After the first two episodes, running away doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

Quotes
Anthony Letizia, Alterna-TV.com ...a worthy addition to the classic movie trilogy that not only fills in the gaps between the second and third films, but expands the mythology as well.
Chris Beaumont, Draven99's Musings ...plenty of action, some comedy, and clever writing.
Shawn McKenzie, Entertain Your Brain! ...full of action, and the acting is great. Some people think that no one could replace Linda Hamilton as Sarah, but I think that Headey pulls it off.
