Storyline

This series is set after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). After the sacrifices of Dr. Miles Dyson and T-800 Model 101 Terminator, the Connors find themselves once again being stalked by Skynet's agents from the future. Realizing their nightmare isn't over, they decide to stop running and focus on preventing the birth of Skynet. With the aid of Cameron Phillips, a beautiful girl who has a mysterious past also linked to the future; Derek Reese, a Tech-Com soldier from the future whose past is linked with the Connors; Riley, a beautiful schoolfriend of John; and FBI Agent James Ellison, who was assigned to capture the Connors but joins them after his own encounter with one of the machines. They begin a quest to stop the United States military and a shadowy conspiracy from the future from creating the program that will stop at nothing to bring humanity to an end. Written by ahmetkozan

Better than the third movie!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 August 2007 | by melmorgan2112-1See all my reviews

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.
