Terminator 4

C/S channel (aka RPN 9) is back to its old tricks. Its been alternating new episodes and replays of Terminator: Sarah Connors Chronicles for the past month. It did the same thing before with Heroes 2 when it was running out of new episodes to show. I can't understand why don't they just show all new episodes. Then when the season ends, they either replay the entire season or start with a different series.

The story line of Sarah Connors Chronicles have been developing well. The addition of Brian Austin Green as Derek Reese, the brother of John Reese (who was sent back in time by John Connors and paradoxically, fathered him), to the cast is nice. It took me some time to recognize him as the dorky sidekick in the old Beverly Hills 90210 tv series. He now looks all buff and grungy as the soldier sent back through time. But I suppose he will get killed off before the season ends.

Another good news to Terminator fans like myself. There is already a 4th Terminator movie in the making entitled Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins. The movie is expected to be released in 2009. Unlike the previous Terminators which were based on present time, this one is based on the future with John Connors (played by Batman's Christian Bale) fights Skynet. Its still a question mark whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will be part of the cast.

The only thing that kind of dampened my enthusiasm for Terminator 4 is the announcement that the director will be McG. I'm not a big fan of his work, although granted that the only one I've seen is Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Its too MTV-ish and senseless with ridiculous/impossible stunts.
