As we now know, last Friday's Terminator return took a giant ratings hit, and the show is probably not long for this world. Which is really a shame, because it's much better than it's given credit for, and this past episode felt like what the show should be every week. The quiet, intimate moments were really well done (though I say Kyle was way too pretty), the T2 shout-outs were plentiful and not over-the-top, and we got to see some stabby robot murders and a couple things explode. All in all a fantastic episode, and though the lack of Cameron was frustrating, John Henry is amazing. Garrett Dillahunt was easily one of my favorite parts of Deadwood, and he kills it every week on this show -- so glad he wasn't gone for good after Cromartie was shot to hell in that church. And the way Weaver's relationship with Henry is somewhat mirroring Sarah's frustration with her son is a nice parallel that I think is working particularly well. That being said, the show is not without its problems. Not to kick a show while it's down (ratings-wise), but here are some changes I'd like to see if TSCC survives.
It's August already, which means that the vast wasteland of summer television is about to turn into a flurry of new shows, and finally our favorites will be back on the air with new episodes. (I barely even remember where Heroes and Pushing Daisies left off, it's been so long!) So before your TiVo gets overstuffed with Knight Rider episodes, here are some things you should make a point to do ASAP. This way, you'll have something good to put in your mandatory "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" blog. Don't panic, people -- none of these ideas involve going outdoors. Heaven forbid. All you need is your computer, maybe Netflix and a DVD player to get started!
