“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” News for a Tuesday (The Save Sarah Connor Edition)
Although there haven’t been any new episode for a few weeks the internet has still been buzzing with TSCC activity. A number polls show that TSCC is a fan favorite including E!Online, Zap2it , Sci-Fi Wire, and the LA Times where TSCC toppled the competition. In addition, several media outlet’s have been voicing their support for the renewal of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
CNN offers their support for Sarah Connor in “Commentary: Save This ‘Terminator’”.
Josh Levs in his commentary has this to say about the finale:
“It was a daring, surprising, brilliant cliffhanger for a show that’s gained a loyal following, particularly among people like me who are in awe of it. It also opens the door to anyone who hasn’t discovered this show yet, allowing for a fresh start.”
Mr. Levs contributes this advice to the FOX network:
“The weekly adventures of Sarah and John Connor just aren’t done. There’s too much unanswered, too much left to explore. So here’s my pitch to network heads: You can still change the future. Don’t terminate these “Chronicles” before their time.”
Charlie Jane Anders and i09 have come up with a campaign to encourage Fox to give Sarah Connor a third season:
“We’ve started a Flickr group called “Sarah Connor Made Me Do It.” Post pictures of yourself with products that sponsored Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles there, and we’ll make sure the folks at Fox and Warner Bros. see it.”
“The show came to life in Season 2, which concluded last month. A tapestry of heartbreak, dread, looming violence and black humor, it resembled nothing so much as a sci-fi Sopranos. The familiar conventions of hour-long dramas were routinely shattered, while the writers meticulously enriched the Terminator mythos beyond all expectations. Unlike the blatant make-it-up-as-you-go-along ethos that powered Battlestar Galactica, the Sarah Connor writers really do have a plan.
Meanwhile, the performers have given life to a host of memorable characters, from Lena Headey’s grim title character to Summer Glau’s terminatrix Cameron, the most inscrutable, yet intriguing, sci-fi character since Spock.”
Wired continues on to point the readers to all the website’s (including the above i09 campaign) that are posting efforts and addresses for correspondence to encourage Fox to renew Sarah Connor.
As fans we must do more than just respond to the polls. We need to participate in the campaigns and spread the word about TSCC. Most importantly, we all must write to Fox and let them know we watch and that we want a third season.

In other news, Lena Headey’s film “Tell-Tale” premeired at the Tribeca Film Festival recently. To check out the trailer and poster click HERE and for a quick description of the film click HERE. Reviews are coming in also:
Variety liked Tell-Tale and thinks the film is:
“…a fairly lovely story unfolds about Terry, Elizabeth and the daughter who is bringing them together. It’s rare to find quite this believable and warm a domestic subplot rolling out at the same time other characters are meeting horrific, bloody ends, but it never feels strained or forced and ramps up the viewer’s emotional investment.
“Tell Tale” may be a fantastic story, but the supernatural elements of Callaham’s Poe-etics are so tightly woven into the action and emotion that one forgets how unnatural it all is.”
Fangoria offers this opinion of Tell-Tale:
“Poe has had most of his notable film adaptations done as period pieces, but TELL TALE demonstrates that his themes can successfully be adapted to fit the modern day as well. Even as the film’s particulars are thoroughly contemporary, the author’s descent-into-madness motifs remain present (and a key line from “Tell-Tale Heart” is even spoken verbatim by one of the onscreen characters). While its match between heartfelt drama and blood-pumping terror may occasionally be irregular, TELL TALE pulls it off more often than not, and may get your heart pounding and blood freezing at a number of intervals.”
