Trivia

Actor Phil Morris contributed an uncredited portrayal of the character Miles Dyson in a photograph in the pilot episode. A scene with the character was written and possibly even shot for this episode, but eventually left out for unknown reasons. Due to contractual reasons, Phil Morris still receives main guest credit, without appearing in the episode. See more »

Goofs

The 'blood' covering the floor and walls of the scientists home is still red, though when blood de-oxygenates (through natural metabolism) it turns dark red then brown until it dries, shrinking and taking on a crackly appearance. Only blood fresh from the body is bright red. See more »

Quotes

Andy Goode: Would you believe me if I told you Turk has moods? Obviously, not in the sense that you and I understand mood, but sometimes I'll feed it a particular chess problem and it'll solve it one way. The next day, I'll feed it the same problem and it solves it differently. Once in a while, it can't even solve it at all. You know why it does that?
Sarah Connor: No.
Andy Goode: Neither do I. Someday, I'm gonna figure it out. Someday, Turk'll tell me.
Sarah Connor: You talk about it like it's human.
Andy Goode: Well, you never know.

and the SkyNet Creator is...
1 January 2011 | by (The One Way Demon Ride To Hell) – See all my reviews

This episode pretty much points a finger at who recreates SkyNet, Andrew Goode (maybe as some sort of a tribute to Miles Dyson finishing what Miles started) The plot is Sarah visits Myles Dyson's widow, and Sarah ends up meeting Andy Goode along the way who ends up being an inventor of a chess playing computer named "The Turk." Meanwhile, John and Cameron try their best to fit in on their first day at the new high school, with John trying to catch up on the eight years of history lost and Cameron trying to mimic the human emotions of her fellow students. Elsewhere, Agent Ellison tries to piece together the mysterious mass killing of four unidentified men, while Cromartie the Terminator tracks down a scientist to assist him in his regeneration. pretty much that my overall opinion on this is it's not a bad episode (I've only found 2 bad episodes and they were in Season 2) but it's not one of the best
