if doesn't have the ratings then it won't last...simple as that...you can say that any show has potential but if people don't watch it...then, POOF, you get something else....look at that Caveman show...it had potential strictly because the Gieco commercials were hilarious...but the show absolutely flunked....

Never said that it would last and I know Fox is horrid at canceling good/great shows despite of having low ratings (although, ABC is becoming worst imo) -- I just said that the show definitely has the potential to be good whether or not it gets axed.

How can you have a show based on The Terminator without the terminator?? Or does it?? If it does it wont have Arnold (not going to attempt his last name) and if u don't know what Arnold im talking about he is currently the governor of California. Its like the price is right without Bob Barker, ive seen it once with Drew Carey and it well.. sucked.

I don't think most of you guys really grasp the whole "terminator" mythology/concept.

Miles Dyson helps create the technology by working for SkyNet that ultimately causes technology & machines to turn against mankind and start wiping it out thus taking over the world in the future. John Connor (Sarah Connor's son) is the one to help gather and lead the rebellion in the future to basically save the human race/mankind. In T1, Arnold Schwarzenegger was the original Terminator sent back in time (by SkyNet) to kill a pregnant Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) so that John Connor would never make it to the future and oppose them. This attempt failed due to the future John Connor sending back a human (Reese in the first movie) to protect Sarah. In T2, Arnold Schwarzenegger was sent back in time (by a future John Connor again) to protect him -- the "bad guy" in the movie (y'know, the one made of liquid metal played by Robert Patrick) was sent to kill John. However, Robert Patrick's character was still a terminator. There are many different forms/types of terminators - some good, some bad.. some that are cyborgs and others with different capabilities. So, yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger was the original "terminator", however there are thousands (probably even millions) of terminators in the future.

Summer Glau? Eh, to each their own. I first remember her from being Tess from The 4400 and I've been a fan ever since. Plus, I find her extremely cute.

Which is the only reason I'll be seeing that movie. Bale is the best actor in Hollywood. I can't think of one bad preformance in his entire career.
