Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles DVD Contest

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Who would ever have thought that a muscular robot with an inexplicable Austrian accent uttering “I’ll be back” would launch a huge sci-fi franchise?  I never would have though that line, originally scripted “I’ll come back” nearly 30 years ago, would lead to a pretty fantastic television series.  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, though, has already been added to the much too long list of great sci-fi series to end too soon (Firefly, Invasion, Surface).

Luckily we now live in the days of quick-to-DVD releases, even when a series has been canceled!  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles The Complete Second Season has just been released as a nifty 6-disc collection, so you shouldn’t let pesky little things like cancellations bother you.

The official take:

The time: today. The stakes: all our tomorrows. A nascent AI, assisted by droids, continues to edge toward world domination and the ruin of humankind. It accepts no limits. It fears no one. Except John Connor. The machines know John, now 16, is the future head of the resistance. They know he is growing in abilities. They must find and terminate him. But Sarah Connor is there, protecting and instructing her son as he becomes the man he?s destined to be. The hunt is on in a season of powerful revelations, breathless pursuits and bravura effects. A mysterious 3-dot symbol (do UFOs provide a clue?), a girlfriend for John (is Cameron jealous?), ZeiraCorp (can it master the renegade software called Turk?) ? Season 2’s 5-disc action arsenal is locked, loaded, ready to amaze.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles The Complete Second Season collects all 22 episodes of the second season in a 6-disc collection.  Special features include the always funny gag reel, features on creating the shows’ storyboards, commentary of 4 important episodes and The Continuing Chronicles: Terminator, and 8-part featurette gallery, among others.

Make sure you stop by the official DVD website www.terminatorondvd.com for more information on the special features, lot’s of videos, photos and goodies like downloadable wallpapers, buddy icons, facebook badges and character bios.

Gossip Girl Returns!

In 2009 Fall Season, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Sonic Youth, Teen Soaps, The CW on 09/14/2009 at 12:15 pm

Gossip Girl

Hopefully you caught our One Tree Hill roundup earlier.  We’re now moving on to Gossip Girl!  The CW has been slightly stingy when it comes to promotional trailers for the upcoming third season of the show.  Of course, there’s the slew of WTF trailers they posted to their youtube channel, but not a peep since, unless you count behind the scenes trailers.  We don’t really count them, though as…well, we don’t really like behind the scenes stuff too much here at DVR Life.  We tend to feel like they kind of kill the magic in a whole you don’t know wanna know what’s in that hotdog kinda way.  There was a pretty funny Chuck Bass appearance on Jimmy Fallon the other night, though.

Others news surrounding this season of Gossip Girl has been related to guest appearances and casting, mainly.  We learned that, even though she’s now starring in NBC’s upcoming medical drama Mercy, Michelle Trachtenburg will be making an appearance as Blair’s college dorm-mate.  Blair’s reaction to that news will be beyond priceless, I’m sure.  In the realm of brilliant casting, Firefly‘s Gina Torres has been cast for multiple episodes as Vanessa’s mother.

Gina Tores

Outside of character casting, there’s the gay storyline spoiler floating around and, what we’re most excited about: the awesomeness of a Sonic Youth guest appearance!  The band will be playing their song Starpower off their 1986 album Evol.  This should be even better than their short spot on Gilmore Girls a few years back!

And just in case you needed it, here’s the season three up to speed trailer:

Gossip Girl returns for it’s third season tonight, September 14th at 9pm on The CW.
