Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
YES it finally did step up and stop making non-stop allusions to religion or whatever and started with simpler story involving John stepping up and dealing with the death of Riley. I always like the dynamic between John and Sarah and lately it has been firing well, the leader of the resistance and his momma that is always likely to end with the two butting heads and onscreen it works well. Add in the Cameron effect and it really goes off like a rocket.
In this episode we also get to see just how important Cameron is in the future as John’s aide but it does make Sarah’s question of why he would send her back interesting. The aforementioned question though may be easily answered as seen during John’s talk with Jesse where he relays his thoughts in the past where he questioned his future self over sending back machines instead of humans to protect him.
This episode was great so let us hope now that they have brought up the quality it stays there.
Doctor Who: Planet of The Dead
WHAT! A good Doctor Who episode you certainly don’t get many of those to the pound. But hey I am not complaining I made a small gamble by stopping Primeval halfway to watch Doctor Who I could have gone either way but it works better this way for my Sunday viewing so there.
Michelle Ryan, an interesting choice and a weird character to be honest but she served her role as eye candy (how tall is she) and equal to deal with the Doctor and his ego. I won’t spoil the story but it is a good standalone tale for sure better than half the last series and that is a conservative estimate. Certainly worth a watch.
