After hearing the buzz surrounding this show I expected it to be better than average, but what i saw blew me away. Unlike the third film which was mildly entertaining, This movie embraced the mythology instead of trying to change it. We all knew when they melted Arnold that wasn't the end, but now instead of replacing all the things we loved about the first 2 movies just to make some cinematic eye candy we are giving an actress that embodies the spirit of the character that Linda Hamilton introduced us to in the 80's and Summer Glau is a welcome introduction to the cast as the NEW protector. The two other reoccurring charterers also add a some interesting possibility's. The only thing I'm afraid of is that if this isn't an instant hit, FOX will screw themselves over once again and pull the plug waaaaay to soon, They seriously need to remember Family Guy and Firefly.
