thanks a lot, UA, for pointing this out.
This forum does not host links to pirated material and we intend to keep it this way. I have deleted these links now as well. Please don't post new ones.
If it is available on an official site you may want to link there.

tv.yahoo.com, if it's still available because of the 24 hours thing (I doubt it).
I wish the first poster would fix the spelling of this thread's title.

Ok, now I've seen the first episode... so, um, I'm completely confused how old John is on Judgment Day.

Is there a reason that 1999 would have been too difficult a year to have the show take place?

Ironically Summer Glau could have graduated from high school in 1999.
The time thing confused me, as well. I guess T2 takes place in 1997...it can't take place in 1991 because John would be 5 or 6 years old. But they never mention what year it is in T2 (but they do in T1, right?) so you tend to assume it's 1991.

I think they jumped to 2007 to avoid anachronisms in the production. It does seem to be a pretty bad contrivance of sorts, and the whole thing with the bank and some engineer building a time machine from 1963 technology was pretty hard to believe. What is this, Back to the Future? Undecided
I feel sorry for the poor bastard that got a one way ticket back in time to build a gun (with technology that would probably have made it the size of a refrigerator)... only for it to be used for 1 shot.
Believe me, at first, I wasn't expecting much from a Terminator tv series but the pilot blew me away.

Was it perfect ?

No.

But it was pretty damn good.

Finally, not since The X-Files, has there ever been a series that I find myself so anticipating the next episode.

Finally, a good science fiction, adventure drama.

I can't help but to laugh that one of the reasons that the pilot for "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" was pushed back to January was because Fox feared competing against the over hyped Bionic Woman.

Unlike the terrible Bionic Woman's pilot, T:TSCC was entertaining, sharp writing (but not perfect), good acting and likable characters.

Unlike the hacks that are writing and producing BW, the team that are writing and producing "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" shows a lot of respect towards the original source material (although they do throw Terminator 3 out the window).

Even if T:TSCC loses a little bit of quality during the next few episodes, it will still be 100 times better of a show than Bionic Woman can hope to be.

The real beauty is that the less promoted and less hyped Terminator pilot scored a hefty 18.29 million viewers in contrast to the heavily promoted Bionic Woman pilot that scored 14 million.

I'm sure viewer ship will drop as the series progress but we'll see if the ratings will spike as badly as Bionic Woman did.

However, unfortunately, I do predict this show to be cancelled before BW because all good science fiction series (except for The X-Files) gets the premature axe by Fox.

NBC doesn't seem to be ready to admit to the failure of the over hyped and heavily promoted "Bionic Woman" and will keep this series running afloat longer than it deserves to.

As for T:TSCC, I give it:
