I was snooping through AICN the other day, and I came across a story about the WB and FOX producing a TV series titled, The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Naturally, being somewhat of a fan of the Terminator series, I checked it out. It seems the series will be set between the second and third films, and will flesh out the relationship between John Connor and his mother.
Now I do not wish to quibble, but I would have thought not much happens between film two and film three to warrant a full television series. As John Connor himself recalled in the third film, he and his mother lived off the grid for some time after T2, and Sarah eventually succumbed to a terminal illness [but not before stashing a shit load of guns in her coffin].
So unless this is going to be somewhat of a science fiction version of The Gilmore Girls, I really cannot see enough material in the canon between the two films to craft a weekly serial from. Except, that is, if the series drifts away from canon.
For my money, I would think a series that chronicles John Connor and Kate Brewster's story as they emerge from the bunker and set about rescuing humanity's survivors and forming them into the resistance against Skynet would have made a much more interesting story. But that's just me.
Still, if the creators of this series can make it fly, then good luck to them. I'll definitely be sucking that particular flavour of milk from the glass teat when it's available.
