Trivia

Andy refers to the original Turk, created in 1770, as an automaton, which the device was purported to be. However, since the mid-nineteenth century, the Turk has been known to be merely a magic illusion, with a human being sitting within the machine playing chess, rather than the machine itself.

Goofs

When Cromartie forces the scientist to make the synthetic skin, we get a shot of the scientist in the bathroom with the robot who has an over coat on. In the next shot, we see the scientist becoming amazed at the sight of the robot without the coat. If you compare the gigantic size of the robot that they show next, with the figure that was in the overcoat, there is an obvious difference in size. The real Cromartie could never fit in that small of an overcoat. See more »

Quotes

John Connor: Have you ever heard of the Singularity? It's a point in time where machines become so smart that they're capable of making even smarter versions of themselves without our help. That's pretty much the time we can kiss our asses goodbye... unless we stop it.

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
