Terminator Getting Canceled is Serious

Terminator getting canceled is like a thousand puppies getting run over. Its serious. Television has been headed in a terrible direction for a while now and this shows just how bad that direction really is. Shows aren't given a chance to grow at all anymore. Even with the bad economy networks still aren't willing take a chance and let shows grow. T:SCC is part of an established franchise that was put on a bad night. Its obvious that given a chance it would defiantly become more successful. But its not getting a chance and we're all gonna die.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles did something that network TV shows don't do. It was brutally honest. Josh Friedman, the mastermind behind the show, could have made the show all about Terminators getting naked and fighting all the time. He didn't. He made the show focus on the consequences of being the mother of the savior of mankind. Sarah Connor never really was a deep character in the movies. In The Terminator she was a young woman fighting for her life. In T2 she was a woman fighting for her sons life. We never got to see her live her life on a daily basis. T:SCC showed this.

The show is also the only successful tv show continuation of a movie franchise that doesn't throw everything out the window.
T:SCC is canon with The Terminator and T2. T3 and Terminator: Salvation are not.

So basically what I'm trying to say is, McG is a fuckface!
