The New Terminator Hot Chick Beats the New K.I.T.T. Into Scrap Metal

So yeah, the writers strike is over. But it's still gonna be a long wait before your favorite shows like House MD, Heroes, and so on come out with their new seasons after their premature-ejaculation last seasons.

If you're a Lost fan, then good for you, because the show just started their new season a few weeks back. But for the rest of us who can't stand the confusion of Lost, here's a suggestion of a cool show that you simply HAVE to watch, especially if you're a fan of The Terminator.

Introducing... Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles!

Yes, it's a TV show based on the years between the awesome Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the rather lame-ass Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines; and as the title of the show suggests, it focuses on the adventures of post-T2 of Sarah Connor, as she goes into hiding to protect her son - John Connor, the future leader of the rebels fighting against Skynet.

So far, I've watched 4 episodes of the show, and it's rather promising, to tell the truth. the story gives a nice little twist to the continuity of the movies, and makes it even more intriguing to watch as you want to know how it will affect the overall plot given in the movies (and whether it will affect the making of any future Terminator movies as well). The writers not only have to make sure the plot makes sense, they also have to think about how it all ties in to what happens in T3.

Sure, there's no Arnie, and Sarah Connor may not be played by Linda Hamilton (it's played by Lena Hedley instead in the show), but she is still kick-ass and tough as she was in T2.

John is a bit of a wuss though. Frankly, if I knew that the hope of mankind rested on the shoulders of this wuss, I'd kill myself before I get a chance to see that future.

But wait, Sarah and John is not the biggest draw of the show. No, the biggest attraction of the show is THIS hot chick:




Summer Glau may have a strange sounding-name, but as Cameron Philips, a Terminator sent back fro mthe future to protect John, she's the hottest Terminator since Kristina Loken walked around in the nude and hijacked a car, and damn sight better looking than the LAST one Future John sent back to protect his past self. And she's not just a hot robot. Her presence and what she contributes to Sarah's fight against Skynet makes the plot even more intriguing.

That picture above not convincing enough for you? Here's more:



And if the Terminator ain't good enough for you, you could always go and check out the new Knight Rider 2008 pilot episode.

K.I.T.T. has gotten an upgrade from a Pontiac Trans Am to a power Ford Mustang, and it is KICKASS. And is that really Val Kilmer as K.I.T.T.'s voice?



The show DOES hold a little promise, but the new cast is a little too kayu for my liking, and the dialogue still recalls the cheesier shades of the OLD Knight Rider. And I couldn't help thinking how awesome it would be if K.I.T.T. suddenly transformed into Barricade...

Man, the new episodes of House and Heroes couldn't come sooner...
