    I can't tell from that article if it's official, or if it's just speculation that with the rating it's getting, there's no way that it will not be renewed.

    The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash from American IV: The Man Comes Around

    I liked that part. It was well done.

    Well, the strike may have something to do with it.

    And I'm going to guess that Cameron wasn't in the Jeep when it blew.
    (and even if she was, she can be repaired)

    Tapping my feeble memory here, but when Cameron destroyed that terminator earlier didn't she keep some of the flesh? Maybe she already knew that she'd need it one day soon?

    Remember Ellison had visited Cromartie at his apartment earlier in the season and left his business card.

    The episodes weren't lame in and of themselves, but on the whole, as season ending eps?


    I did enjoy John seeing his father. Best. Birthday. Ever.

    Also, I loved the Johnny Cash song near the end. Downloaded it 5 minutes after the show ended. That album is pretty good on the whole, too. That whole scene was extremely well done, with the pool shot and all.

    Nitpick: I don't know why, but the terminators having names really bugs me. I know it's necessary for the ease of storytelling, but still. It approaches giving them personalities, which terminators just shouldn't have. They're killin' machines. And where did the name "Cromartie" come from anyway?

    If you missed her in the "Previously on..." segment... remember her leaning against the car (imitated by Cameron) when Sarah went to get fake IDs from Enrique's nephew?

    She didn't talk then, either.

    I dont get it... are we supposed to think the car bomb destroyed her? memory may be failing but early in the series didnt the other bot get much worse done to him and he still survived?

    around minute 53 was that someone of significance that died? they focused on him laying on the ground but i was otherwise distracted and didnt get a close look

    They're speculating based on its *Canadian* ratings. The show has not been as successful here as it has up there.

    At the end when John said that the guy Derek killed in the alley wasn't the guy who they thought it was... when/who did Derek kill in an alley? I must have not paid attention.

    And the guy who they thought alley-guy was really was the guy who planted the bomb at the very end, right? (based on the pic John found on the computer)

    I totally called the going to see the young reese boys (YLAM!). It seemed they were trying to go for a Sopranos vibe there at the end.

    Overall, I just have to say WTF with this season. So many things are completely unresolved and otherwise pointless. The weird skinny girl at the new school? The hispanic girl? Real or not? What's the point of all these people protecting the turk? To them it's nothing more than a chess playing computer....not something worth 3 million dollars.

    Not surprising there are things unresolved -- writer's strike ya know -- I don't think this was meant to be the seaon finale; it just turned out that way.

    Huh? Yes, real. Why wouldn't she be real?

    Why wouldn't it be worth three million? It's the design and programming that are valuable, not the hardware per se. We have to assume that plans/backups/etc. were destroyed or never existed.

    The hispanic girl is no mystery, she's been out front of Enrique's nephew's place every time the show went there.

    As for the guy in the alley, they thought they'd killed whomever had The Turk, but it appears there was another power behind him.

    I really liked this (shortened) first season.

    She wouldn't be real because she appeared to be shot in the midsection but was walking around . By real I mean not a terminator.

    I guess I don't see the significance of the turk being this big thing everyone's after. I'll blame those striking writers.

    There was hardly any blood. I'd thought she'd just gotten it on her when she went inside and found her people dead.

    I've read the ratings were just OK but the series is extremely expensive to produce.

    I don't think we'll like a compromise decision, renew but with a much lower budget.

    At least they aired all the episodes that were produced and in the correct order.

    Not sure why Ellison was allowed to live. They've made it clear that the removal of one person will do very little to stop JD. They have to cause a major disruption in the events leading to it for that to happen and even then, I doubt it is avoidable. T3 made that clear.

    At the end of T2, all evidence of the existence of the terminators, the chip, etc., was destroyed and JD still happens. Later than originally anticipated. I believe it was April 2011 from the show last night but it did happen. Not only that, but it happened like it was originally established it would happen. Not through software (T3) but through hardware trusted to 'run it all', as Kyle would say. That's not to say that their actions would further delay JD. What does messing up the traffic/computer system three years before JD really stop? In our world, it would mean replacing it with a bigger/better/more advanced system. Not really something in our best interests based on how Skynet might use that system.

    Cool birthday present to John by BAG, by the way. I'd be curious as to how BAG knew where he was all those years ago. For him, hasn't it been like 15-20 years?

    I guess I'm the only one who recognized James Urbaniak, the guy who greeted them in the cyber cafe'. I knew immediately he was a "sleeper" character. He was the accountant in Kidnapped
    read assassin, as in he closed the books on various characters
    and is the voice of Dr. Venture in the Venture Brothers. He turned out to be the guy they were after, but they originally thought it was the tough guy.

    Was the little girl his daughter? I didn't catch what she said when they asked.
