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.

Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases.  Don’t ask us why.  We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster.  It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited!  We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.

In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things.  Once you enter  you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest.  And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game.  Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

Sneak Peek: Metallo On Smallville

In 2009 Fall Season, 90210, Beverly Hills 90210, One Tree Hill, Smallville, Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles, The CW on 08/19/2009 at 4:51 pm

Smallville

TV Guide has delivered a first look at new Smallville bad-guy Metallo, played by Brian Austin Green.  The character is a new reporter at The Daily Planet named John Corben.  After an accident he’s given a heart full o’ kryptonite.  Just what Clark needed, right?  Green’s two episode arc begins with  the season opener September 25th, but Guide got an exec-producer to admit that they’re looking for him to return.

As previously reported, the actor was in talks to join The CW’s One Tree Hill as Nathan’s wild-style b-ball agent.  Unfortunately, his reps nixed the idea, which we questioned, but after seeing this pic of robo-Green, we’re kind of impressed.  Not that we take it back.  We dug sci-fi Green on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but we still yearn for his teen soap days ala Beverly Hills 90210.  Thank the TV gods he’s didn’t go to 90210 (the remake)- I bet you they asked!

Smallville returns for it’s ninth (yikes!  That’s a really long run for any show, let alone a teen-oriented one!) season Friday September 25th at 9pm on The CW.

Also, check DVR Life tomorrow for you chance to win a DVD box set of Smallville Season 8!

Odds & Ends

In Curb Your Enthusiasm, Flash Forward, Grey's Anatomy, Hawthorne, Royal Pains, Smallville, Teen Soaps, Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles, The CW, The Listener, TNT, Wedding Day on 06/21/2009 at 2:31 am

Lot’s of news swirling around this week and extended work hours left me with little time to update, so I thought I’d drop a bunch of small items at once:

TNT’s first ever non-scripted series, Wedding Day, didn’t fare so well. According to Nielsen the show pulled just 850,000 viewers for it’s debut. Due to the low numbers the network has moved the show to Thursdays at 8pm, I guess hoping Bones reruns will act as a better lead-in for their new med drama HawthoRNe.

Brian Austin Green will be joinging CW’s Smallville for a two episode arc. Just a few weeks ago word was leaked that the actor, fresh off Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles, would be joining the cast of CW’s One Tree Hill as Nathan Scott’s playboy sports agent. That lasted about a week before his “reps got cold feet“. Seems odd that he’d turn down a longer lasting part on a higher rated series on the same network for two episodes on a series that’s barely holding on for it’s final season. Anyway, he’s on for playing Metallo, a villian.

Ratings for USA’s Royal Pains went up 17% in it’s third week. At the same exact time, The Listener, on USA’s mother network NBC, went down just as much for it’s third week. Good news for Royal Pains, which I really enjoy. Bad news for The Listener, which I also enjoy. It gets alot of flack from TV critics, but it’s not as bad as they make it out to be.

T.R. Knight won’t be returning to Grey’s Anatomy, while Katherine Heigl will be. I hate spoilers and think it’s really freaking lame that every single TV news outlet reported this, but oh well.

The whole cast of Seinfield will appear in HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s seventh season, which debuts this fall. No word about how or why, nor if they’ll all be together or seperate. If I recall correctly, Julia Louis Dreyfus has already appeared in an earlier season, but this’ll be a first for the others.

Seth MacFarlane is going to be a recurring guest star on ABC’s Flash Forward. Don’t ask me why. I really don’t know much about MacFarlane as I’m not a fan of his work, but I don’t the purpose in his casting.

Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner hinted in an interview with Rolling Stone that the show may be be shifting to Los Angeles.

Now that The CW has canceled Reaper, the duo behind the show are moving to the writing staff of Fox’s Dollhouse.

Finally, Cupid, Pushing Daisies and The Unusuals all ended, while Eli Stone returned (if only for a few weeks). ABC is really cleaning house this summer.

Officially Canceled: Life

In 2009 Upfronts, ABC, Fox, My So-Called Life, NBC, Programming, Samantha Who?, Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles on 05/04/2009 at 9:38 pm

It was announced today that NBC’s Life has been officially canceled. No surprise there. Ratings were low and truthfully, I was surprised it received a second season.

The show actually did pretty well in it’s Friday slot but being moved to Wednesdays against Lost was the death of the show.

It’s a shame, really, as it was a pretty strong show – good writing, great actors portraying interesting characters and impressive production values.

Other peacock network shows still on the bubble include Medium (grrr), Law & Order, Chuck and My Name Is Earl, though I’m pretty sure Earl is dead and the other three will probably make it through.

Other network shows on the bubble are Fox’s Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles and ABC’s Samantha Who?
