This show is the best story advancement of the Terminator franchise since Cameron's Terminator 2 in terms of quality and plot development.
The plot of this series is set after the events of Terminator 2.
Most of all Summer Glau is the sexiest and most mysterious Terminator ever and Lena Headey really cool as Sarah Connor. Also Shirley Manson as Terminator with very mysterious mission and loyalties are so thrilling interesting ... but we will never know ... too bad!
I love the plot and the development of the Terminator story in this show.
And it's really a shame that the show got canceled (and Fox preferred the lame Joss Wheadon show Dollplay instead).
