    I hope this show makes it, I'm really starting to dig it. Summer terminator kicks ass and I found the headless terminator amusing.

    I really like this show.

    It has no chance, especially with the writers strike.

    Interesting how the fleshless terminator head (and other body parts) made it through.

    Whose house are they living in?

    I still don't get sending him to school. It's good for the plot, but it will just get them caught. I"d prefer a story in which they are moving from town to town every episode. I like that formula.

    Summer Glau really is perfect in this role.

    Yeaaahhhhhhhh. How are they going to explain that one.

    Interesting how they are setting things up.
    So now they have two bad Terminators running around Los Angeles and the one resistance fighter.

    Although I did laugh when they tossed Summernator out the window.

    Maybe I was reading into it something that wasn't there, but my interpretation was that after the explosion at the bank, the remains/rubble were sent to the scrap yard, and the guy who found the head was rummaging through the scrap heap when he found something interesting, so he picked it up and brought it home. Somehow, setting it down at his house caused it to activate. Then, it sent out a homing signal of some kind and woke his body up.

    Of course, it's highly coincidental that it happened at the same time that Sarah, John, and Summernator (nice name) happened to arrive in L.A., but life is full of coincidences.

    If it had been pulled through the portal, it should have been on the freeway with the rest of them when they arrived. They also made a point to remind us of the rules of time travel in the vault (and, of course, having them arrive naked), so it's hard to believe they would have forgotten them already by the second episode.

    If you subtract the five minutes or so when the nitwit son broke into his old house and met his mom's ex, I really liked this episode.

    I kept wondering why Sarah didn't steal a tv or a playstation or something if she expected John to stay home and do absolutely nothing all day.

    They showed the head come through the portal, and picked up on the side of the road.

    Is it me, or is she a lot more, um, womanly than she used to be?

    She still looks pretty flat-chested to me.

    Close, I think, but not quite.

    I took it that the rest of the terminator's body was, as you said, in a scrap heap containing the debris of the demolished bank.

    But they showed the head tumbling through the portal that Sarah & Co. used to jump to 2007. It presumably landed on the side of the highway. The guy that found it and took it home was a trash worker picking up trash on the side of the highway.

    So what happened was that the body has been sitting dormant in the scrap heap for 8 years. Then the head 'appears' in 2007, reboots, and is able to re-activate the body, I guess via some fancy dandy wifi.

    What I didn't understand is how the body could 'see' without the head.



    Anyways, I'm really enjoying this show and it looks to be a keeper for me. More drama and less action last night than in the pilot but still great over all. The scene with Cameron and the Hispanic girl leaning against the car was a terrific scene, and not even a word spoken. Also liked Sarah tossing Cameron out the window. I'm assuming Sarah's ex boyfriend (fiance?) is going to be brought into the gang and some point, and maybe the resistance fighter, too.

    I suppose the writer's strike is going to be good and bad for the show.
    Good because it has little competition. Not talking about just the same time slot, but in general... the more programming taking up peoples' time over various nights, the less chance they'll tune in on a *specific* timeslot. The show's decent ratings might be in part due to people desperate for *something* to watch.
    Bad, because the show is just going to have to end when it runs out of their 8 or 9 episodes and people might not remember to come back, if the show itself even does.

    Interesting that Summernator told Sarah about the cancer. Most definitely changes up the timeline and future events as she will now obviously get early discovery and early treatment. Loved that Sarah asked 'her' if she could do the medical checks (CAT scan) to which Summernator answered no.

    I think a little more busty, and a lot more hippy. She used to be more Twiggy-esque...

    She answered no... but was she telling the truth?

    Probably doesn't matter because Sarah is getting looked at.

    My guess is she can do some sort of better scan than what she was asked about.
