Well, it's the only way they can make the show.
That said, I can't imagine anyone buying a car based on a TV show.

"According to this show, I can outrun robots in this truck!"
Actually you would be surprised. When I was car shopping over the last few days (I did have an 09 Ram but returned it due to the payments and I had constant problems with it) the saleswoman told me that they sell about three a week and at least one person a week tells them they saw it on Terminator and liked it.

In the 80's it was widely reported that Pontiac asked the producers of Knight Rider to remove all references to the Trans Am from KITT because they had people coming into dealerships asking for Trans Ams and not buying them when they realized that they didn't have KITT's features.

I don't have a problem with real products being used instead of having the lead drinking Cool Cola. But when they have lingering shots on things, like James Bond staring at his GPS for a long period of time even though his destination is right in front of him, that's noticable.
That was something that I hated in Casino Royale for example.

I was flipping through stations one day, and on a soap opera one character gave another Midol and then they had a discussion about it. A commercial within the dialog!!!!!!
Sure it wasn't Smallville?

Re: Terminator-214 "The Good Wound" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

Oh wow, thank you for reminding me it will be back! I hope people will notice it has changed days. I imagine this episode is going to have low ratings tomorrow cause everyone forgot when it comes back on and that it will be on a different day.

Any info on a third season?

Re: Terminator-214 "The Good Wound" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

^ Nothing concrete. From what I've been reading Fox says that ratings will decide (because of the revenue), but Warner Brothers has been buying up the ad space to heavily promote Terminator: Salvation and taken on an enhanced role in production (namely they're paying more). They may also shop it around to another network if Fox teminates it (pun intended).

I honestly wonder if part of the Advertising Budget for T4 may be going into this. In short they can't take the negative press of the show getting cancelled exactly one month before the new movie comes out.

I'm sure the show is off of the chopping block until next season, because of the impending movie in May. This COULD be the last season, unfortunately, if the network is not satisfied with the show following the release of T4.

I really hope it survives, because the first season was good, but the second season has been amazing so far. Now it's going to get even more interesting, since we will see Kyle Reese again (not sure for how long).

^ Fox doesn't really care about T4 though or if it suceeds or fails. Warner Brothers produces the Terminator media. I could see Fox cancelling the show though to make Warner Brothers look bad.

Though I don't think the show is in trouble at the moment. I really see WB buying them another season; however, I think that it should only be a 13 episode run at most.

^ I'm tempted to ask my Dad's one friend how many people by Mustangs expecting them to be able to morph like that (he owns a Ford Dealership - where I bought my Escape).

^ Or the Stride episode.

Not to mention a full minute of them doing sweeping shots of Clark's Toyota Tundra a few seasons ago.

Um Clark your mom is a politician in the United States. You need to buy American.

Honestly, I am going into these back 9 expecting that the show will be canceled. No show has really survived being moved to the Friday night death slot and I honestly have little hope that Terminator will pull a miracle and survive. In the words of Sarah Connor I view each episode like its a gift and cherish each one as such.

The upside of my cynicsim is that if the show is not canceled, I will be happy beyond belief.

^ There hasn't been new episodes since December so you may not have missed anything

Sarah's pursuit of the three dots has had dangerous consequences for her after being shot at a secret warehouse where a mysterious project was underway. John and Cameron are tending to Riley after her suicide attempt. Catherine Weaver has become more protective over John Henry.

Only a little over an hour left until the episodes start. I wonder how many people will be watching?
