Don't These People Watch 'The Sarah Conner Chronicles'?

I'm a sucker for anything TERMINATOR. Doesn't matter if it's the old school Cameron original or its extra-crispy sequel, the over-amped but still entertaining third installment or the outrageously wonderful Indonesian rip-off LADY TERMINATOR (available on DVD from the fine folks at Mondo Macabro).

Recently, I've also been loving the FOX show 'Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles'. Even if the lead is somewhat less believable in the role than the great Linda Hamilton she's nicely offset by Summer Glau as the icily protective robot from the future and Thomas Dekker (who I thoroughly enjoyed on 'Heroes' back when it was good) as future savior of mankind John Conner. Last but not least, old school '90210' lovers like me have to be getting a kick out of seeing Futuristic David Silver (Brian Austin Green) back on the network and, yes, that was Dr. Venture himself, James Urbaniak, as the evil Cafe Manager in the season finale.

Apparently, though, other people must not be watching and paying attention. Why else would somebody turn their BBQ smoker into an urban crime stopper? Don't tell SkyNet!

Thanks to WP Tandy for the tip.
