Sarah Connor (Lena Heady) will do anything to protect her son John (Thomas Dekker), the future savior of the human race. The machines know about John, and have been sent back to terminate him before Judgment Day. There is also Cameron (Summer Glau), a machine sent back to the past to protect him. But Cameron seems to have another agenda as well. And joining the team on a regular basis this season is John’s uncle Derek Reese (Brian Austin Green).
Settled in a new safe house, Sarah begins having visions, starting an obsession with a symbol of 3 dots. John’s relationship with his girlfriend Riley develops, and Cameron seems jealous. But Riley is revealed to be working with Derek’s old flame, who has a mission of her own. Meanwhile, Agent James Ellison (Richard T. Jones) is hot on the trail of the Connors.
The Connors kill the terminator Cromartie (Garret Dillahunt) that has been following them since last season. But someone has plans for the body. Shirley Manson comes on the scene as liquid terminator Catherine Weaver, a soulless machine that kills without a thought. Catherine uses the dead terminator’s body to build a new AI, named John Henry. But Catherine doesn’t seem to be sent back to kill John Connor. Instead, her focus is on John Henry and helping him learn what it means to be human. The characters are all perfectly cast. But Dillahunt’s change from killer to new AI innocence steals every scene that he’s in. And Manson’s portrayal of the liquid terminator is always chilling.
The second season of the Sarah Connor Chronicles was even better than the first. With new mysteries, more danger, and John trying to break free of his mother’s shadow. Sarah and John are still trying to stop SkyNet before Judgment Day comes. Everyone has their own agenda. And each episode is more exciting and thrilling than the last. This was easily one of the best shows on television last year.
Unfortunately, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles was not renewed for a 3rd season. And the end of season 2 leaves us with an enormous cliffhanger, where John travels to the future, where Cameron seems to be human and Derek doesn’t recognize John.
There is no better way to watch the Sarah Connor Chronicles that on Blu-Ray. The action and special effects were made for high definition. You won’t want to go back to regular TV.
