I get going and I just can’t stop blogging.  Now if I only had readers…

 At any rate, I watched the second installment of Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles last night.  I was worried because the previews made it look like the Terminators had already found them… again.  Which kind of sucks, I mean, the TV series should evolve, not drop the biggest whammy plot hook all at once.  It would seem my worst fear was only partially realized and because the Terminators… well aren’t so smart at strategizing/thinking/communicating, the hammer has not fallen.  Two terminators have seen them, one knows who they are.  But Skynet doesn’t, at least that is what Cameron says.

It would seem the series is off to a stunning success.  I like that the Terminator protector can learn to act human.  The reinvinvention of the interplay of the war through time travel because of the Terminator 2 movie outcome is brilliant, and instead of being a lame movie spin-off with inconsistencies, this is actually a plot geek device to drive the lore and make a deeper, richer, more believable war.

As the name of the series implies, the story is really all about Sarah Connor.  Does she have the strength to get through?

And in computer news… one PC isn’t enough.  Now that I have my wireless keyboard, I have set my eyes upon my old living room PC.  It is good.  But does not play WoW.  Nor does it bake cookies.  Most importantly, I have decided to record the Sarah Connor Chronicles in HD and need a PC processor powerful enough to do it.  So now I got to put together a super-duper el cheapo DVR PC.  Trust me, this $400-$500 puppy will play WoW (yes!) and also record HD TV.  No cookies.. yet. 

I’m off to consult the Retired Nerdchieftain, ADMIN@<TOP><SECRET>.com for advice.   He’s gone way out there and … uses his XBOX 360 as a media center for his PC DVR recordings in his living room.  He’s yet to go HD, for the value equation isn’t quite right on the broadcast level.

  2. Your thoughts on the show are very mush in line with mine.
    I’m glad you enjoyed it.
    Also good luck with the WOW Media Center PC
    I can’t wait to see how that turns out.

  3. Quite a little discussion has developed over on The Salesman’s blog. Wish I had started it on mine.

    I also forgot to mention that I love the internal monologues in the Sarah Connor Chronicles. This is what made T2 very gripping: Sarah Connor’s thoughts on life, as she evolved.
