    ^ 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.

    :lol: Some people need to be locked up for their own safety and the safety of others.

    ^ 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.

    BAG told TVGuide that the Basement storyline is coming back in 2.5.

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

    Little OT: I will be making another update to my Terminator Fanfic this evening. This entry will be from the perspective of Skynet itself.


    Little promo of a previous entry:

    “… This thing is amazing,” said a harsh male voice from no where. “Perfectly crafted, enhanced defenses, it’s just perfect.”

    It was in the darkness that Allison Young was finding strength. Her field of vision was clouded by an unending night. A series of beeps, clicks, and whistles played through her head unheard by anyone but her. Slowly text began to appear among the dark with a schematic of her endoskeleton appearing on the right hand side with system power generation and allocation on the left. Perhaps, with some work, she could restore her systems at least partially.

    “What you call perfect I call junk,” chastised a feminine sounding voice. “Look at that thing. It’s in pieces. How could we ever use that thing for anything other than a paperweight?”

    The screens were still dark. Allison’s optical sensors were still functional if underpowered. There were a series of overloads to circuits inside her head but she could work around those malfunctions.

    “Have faith,” came a third voice (another man). “We’ve been in worse shape and got those things to work before.”

    Success! The clouds before her eyes disappeared revealing a group of people hovering over her with different pieces of technology. Her visual data screen flashed proximity alert warnings in red among the full colored FOV. A T-600 stood in the back holding a plasma blaster and stared at her. She tried to connect to him but her transceiver was offline. Human tampering no doubt.

    The first man, who was closest to her, was cutting into her skull and trying to connect a computer to her memory port, “And this’ll be no different. She’s the same as any of the others that we’ve reprogrammed. Her face may be hard for us to handle, but we’ll get over it. After all we were able to reprogram the other.”

    Reprogram? No they couldn’t be allowed to do that. They couldn’t be allowed to change the fundamentals of who she was. Skynet help her! She knew calling out to her father would be futile without the transceiver, but she couldn’t help but try. Alerts just kept flashing informing her repeatedly that the assembly was offline. It was impossible. She needed to fight back but restraints were in place.

    “Is she awake?” It was the third male.

    With the power drain being so severe her abilities were extremely limited – more than ever before. Why had C715.P turned on her? They had a plan and it would have allowed them to destroy John Connor and help Skynet to win the war. Instead she fired on her and disabled her systems with one well placed shot. She was a traitor and needed to be destroyed. Fortunately the humans seemed to have been doing that for her. Across from her she saw a mirrored image with more technicians hovering over her sister unit. They were busily working on her. She was a convert, a conscripted collaborator. She would need to be destroyed.

    “Heavens no,” said the first man as he pulled out a USB Cable. He threw a thumb back toward Cameron, “That one disabled her power systems.”

    Allison was able to access the mobility subroutines that allowed her movement. The tactical systems were down and she couldn’t pack a good punch against these enemies, but she could at least take out a few of them. She began transferring power.

    The woman approached, “Still though I’d prefer a little more than just your opinion. These things are incredibly adept at coming back from the dead and biting us on the ass.”

    “Would you two relax already?” The first began typing on a Tablet PC. “We’re almost there and this thing’ll need major repairs before it’ll be able to move. I’m going to… Oh my…”

    Allison had completed her power transfers. A gloved hand shot forward and grabbed hold of the human man’s neck like a mechanical vise. She pulled him closer and squeezed her fingers together. The sound of cracking bone filled the air and crimson blood could be seen coming around the fingers. Allison couldn’t feel any of it. The tactile sensors were offline, but soon she would be too. For a moment the replica wished she would have been given a self termination implant.

    Ahead of them people were scrambling to shut her down. They were pulling power circuits and ripping at the infiltrator. Alarms rang inside Allison’s systems and warning lights flashed on her heads up display. Internal systems were compromised. They had reached into her torso and were trying to disable her power generators. Defense systems were not functional. She had no recourse. There was no defense. She watched as they pulled her primary power cell from her chest and stared at it. The power allocation monitor on the left of her vision plummeted down like a ton of bricks. Her vision began to roll and the computer screens went to static. She was offline again and a victim to whatever the humans wished.

    Any guesses on how much product placement we'll see tonight? I'm predicting at least one Dodge commercial per break, long sweeping shots of Derek's Ram.

    Also, I didn't realize this until recently, the Connor's have not one but two Rams.
