TSCC on io9

I wasn't exactly sad when Arnold dropped out of the next Terminator film. He was awesome in T1 and T2, but as far as I'm concerned, the film franchise died a long time ago and his presence in the next installment wasn't going to resuscitate it. Going forward, the only Terminator story I can even imagine myself caring about is a continuation of The Sarah Connor Chronicles* (you're shocked, I know). So it made me happy to see TSCC get a hearty nod from io9 in an article about the Terminator movie mess. Nice to know the show isn't forgotten even if it was just the usual blah blah blah future war talk.

* Well, I might also care about a story set in between T1 and T2.

The future war stuff is actually my favorite aspect.

I'm not sure what you want from a TSCC continuation if you're tired of Future war stuff ...

Though I could see them having John returning from the future in a fifteen minute action sequence.

Get the Future!John in the present storyline.

They could go off your theory that Cameron never jumped and that the last ten minutes of TSCC ever ...



Now I want to see that movie ...

I like future war but I also like the here and now. I'm interested what the future was like for people and how they did everything but I'm not interested in seeing it in real-time because of how that would effect the present.

My opinion of the films is T3 should have been about the early part of the war, when the people still don’t know why they were nuked the few years beforehand and just as the machines turn up; it should have dealt with Johns capture and interment, with him meeting Kyle and organising the “great” escape.

The fourth movie should have been the last gasp of skynet, with John winning by a hairsbreadth and finished with him unwrapping Arnold T800 fresh off the production line to send back, and ended with him just saying the words, “he’ll do.”

Arnold is just too old to play the part and would only make a mockery of it if he tried, and anyway, with his recent troubles he’s persona non grata at the moment, nobody is going to hire him for anything, he’s just too much the poisoned chalice.

The only continuance I want to see is like you the resurrection of TSCC, it was the only Terminator mythology that payed its dues to the original two films and dared to go places any new film would shudder to go!

Why is there no campaign to perform inception on Megan Ellison?
Suddenly this Catherine Weaver-type outbids big studios for Terminator rights and the fandom just lies back and shrugs their shoulders? LET'S GO TO HER ZIERA CORP AND HAVE A CONFRONTATION THAT WILL CHANGE THE FUTURE.

God, I love this idea:

"We had a whole list of stories on the board in the TSCC room of stories to do in seasons three and four, from the serious to the facetious to the inexplicable (I still am scratching my head over "Sarah helps a wedding cake.") The one I was always waving the flag for was labeled "Pope Brazen Head." I was obsessed with the legend of Pope Sylvester the Second and his magical talking metal head (seriously, look it up) and liked to imagine that it was a Terminator head that had been thrown back in time and spent 1000 years secretly influencing the course of western civilization. Josh was actually intrigued by the notion, but alas, the cancellation monster claimed us first."

Rogue Terminator head changes the flow of history through human wonder and superstition.


I miss SCC so much...
