I've never been much of a Terminator person, so I was a little surprised when I first heard about Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the Fox series that picks up the Terminator story at the end of Terminator 2. The show focuses on Sarah Connor — played by Linda Hamilton in the movie and Lena Headey in the TV series — as she tries to keep her son (Thomas Dekker) safe from the ever-shifting army of cyborgs bent on taking his life.
Fox clearly has high hopes for the series, pairing it with 24 in January and promoting it with the Terminator name (it was originally just called The Sarah Connor Chronicles; Terminator was added later). The thing is, I'm wondering if any people who aren't already hooked into the Terminator franchise — like me — will be interested in watching. Then again, the three movies together made more than $390 million in U.S. theaters, so that might be all the audience Fox needs. Are you curious to check out this show?
