The series are running between T2 and T3. Not that make any change for me since i haven't see T3 and i don't remember T2 at all XD. To tell you the truth i don't even like Terminator. My reason for wathching the series are: Summer Glau and Lena Headey. I've recently watched both of them in other series (Firefly and Game of Thrones) and i wanted to know more about them.
Anyway, at the first 3-4 episodes i was really bored with it and i was thinking about stopping it.
The robot fights while they are amazingly done, the fact that they are robots and don't have emotions made them a bit nahhh...You don't see pain or anything as it's obvious so they feel dead already.
Plus the acting at the start was really bad. Everyone except John Connor were losing it a little. They did improve a lot lately thanks for me. And Sarah Connor's character is annoying. I know she is trying to protect her kid and the world but i just wanted to hit her XD I really liked Summer Glau though. She knows how to play characters who don't get a thing about feeling and such and they are acting weird.
But what kept me watching? It was the story. Unbelievable as it sounds, since i don't like Terminator, i was obsessed. The story with the time traveling is so clever! The whole mystery, how they tried to survived, all the people the future John sent for unknown reasons back, Cameron acting weird, John attaching to robots. It was cool!
Andddd...then they cancel the show. Not only it was canceled but it also has the most sucky ending i've ever seen in a canceled show. It doesn't fit the story and it created even more answers than you already had . I prefer not to remember it. O.O
It was interesting to watch it and i didn't expect to like it ( and Silvestro is not going to die anytime soon for recommending it to me.)
The show has 2 seasons: Season 1 (9 episodes/40mins) - Season 2 (22 episodes/40mins)
