    Spoilers ahead...


    We open on Sarah racing to school. She busts in the classroom and tells John that they have to go. They exit the front and a pile of cops are waiting with their pistols ready. Cops arrest them and throw them in the back of seperate squad cars. Sarah looks out and sees a massive dude walking towards them. She headbutts the cop, takes his keys and heads for John as the big dude opens up with shotguns and uzis. John bolts for it as Sarah shoots big guy in the face, revealing metal underneath. Big guy shoots John in back.

    Sarah runs to John, crying. Tells Big guy to kill her. She says nothing matters now. Big guy says "You're right. Nothing matters anymore. Only the boy. The future is ours and it begins now." Massive nuclear explosions, burns the skin off Big guy revealing... ta-da! A Terminator. He walks to Sarah, grabs her by the neck, lifts her up...

    And she wakes up from her nightmare. Some guy wakes up next to her, asks if she needs water. They cuddle and study her new engagement ring. He goes to the bathroom, she studies herself in the mirror, cut to title screen...

    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    And that's the first five minutes or so. Looks pretty badass. I'll be back after I watch the rest...

    O.k., there ARE Terminators in the show. So far they had a T-800 pose as a substitute teacher to kill John.

    And they've actually had a twist that was pretty good. Don't want to spoil it.

    O.k., I'm a little confused. Apparently, the t.v. show is totally dropping t3? It starts in 99, two years after the events of t2, but at the end of the pilot, they jump through time to 2007. So wouldn't Skynet have already taken over? Wasn't t3 in 2005? Wouldn't there be two Johns in this period?

    Confusing, but pretty damn cool nonetheless. I hope it gets picked up for a full season.

    I read somewhere that this series is treating T3 as an alternate reality.

    Terminator ended with T2 in Yakland, but i'll still be watching this for car crash value.

    Can't wait for the TV version of Alien loves Predator.

    I'm really interested in seeing what this series has to offer. I love Terminator and I hope it does the franchise justice. I also read somewhere that this series somehow ties into the upcoming Terminator 4 (if it ever gets made), so I would think it would follow the same timeline as T3. Unless, of course, T4 will somehow acknowledge both the T3 and the TV timelines. Two parallel universes converging into one timeline. It could happen...theoretically...I guess. :wink:

    Wait a minute...is this some kind of Smallville-like continuity, or does it attempt to carry the movie over from T2?

    I ask because T2 takes place in the early 1990s, not 1997 like someone said. I'm not sure exactly what year T2 happens (it's not 1991, the year of its release), but I know that August 1997 (Judgment Day) was pretty far in the future.

    I won't mind this continuity error if it's a completely new continuity, like Smallville, that has the story take place in present day.

    On the show, they clearly state that it is '99, two years after they blew up Cyberdine. Part of the thrust of the show is that the FBI is chasing them because they are accused of murdering Miles Dyson.

    Makes sense if you think about it, because T1 was 84, and John was 12/13 in T2, so that'd make it 97.

    So it is after T2, because they make constant references to it. I don't remember when T3 was set, maybe 2010.

    But they do jump to 2007 at the end of the pilot.

    My only fear is FOX will cancel it just as they've done with everything else that was good. Like Firefly...

    Just finished, decent plot, seems to be going somewhere, has the cute chick from Firefly, special effects are decent for a Tv series, I think I'll like it if future episodes live up to this one,.................................Yep Fox is going to cancel it.

    Couldn't agree more on both statements. Giving a show an awesome start, and the running it into the ground later on is the only thing FOX is consistant about. I swear the higher-ups at FOX are either ADD or on crack.
