Wired Asks For Sarah Connor Chronicles Salvation

The show came to life in Season 2, which concluded last month. A tapestry of heartbreak, dread, looming violence and black humor, it resembled nothing so much as a sci-fi Sopranos. The familiar conventions of hour-long dramas were routinely shattered, while the writers meticulously enriched the Terminator mythos beyond all expectations. Unlike the blatant make-it-up-as-you-go-along ethos that powered Battlestar Galactica, the Sarah Connor writers really do have a plan.

Meanwhile, the performers have given life to a host of memorable characters, from Lena Headey’s grim title character to Summer Glau’s terminatrix Cameron, the most inscrutable, yet intriguing, sci-fi character since Spock.

Which brings us to your mission: Save Sarah. Over at sci-fi enemy-blog io9, they’ve started a Flickr group featuring viewers posing with products advertised on the show, giving sponsors and executives important proof that Chronicles fans — unlike those deadbeats watching Ghost Whisperer — are willing to put their money where their eyeballs are.

I suck and need to catch up on the last couple of episodes, Fridays have been a bit of a mess for me lately. Still, agree with the article - the show has had its ups and downs, but seems to can only go up from here.

Actually, what I would love is to see the show renewed with an enhanced budget. I know that's probably far from reality, but the writers have done very well will few dollars, and I'd love to see what they could do with more.
