Second Season of 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' Touches the Grey Matter

September 08, 2008 09:45:46 GMT


The brand new second season of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", one to watch this week, will open with explosive and full-action sequences packed with CG animation. But as a balance to that, in the weeks to come, it will also pick up episodes that are not as high-octane, taking audience to a journey deeper into the character's mind.

Introducing its sophomore cycle, Fox said that the season will show that "life for the Connors intensifies as their relationships are challenged and the present and the future begin to become one." In line with that executive producer Josh Friedman noted, "There's the people who really come for the action, there's people who really come for the characters, and then there's the large Venn diagram in the middle, which is the people who want both. And I think those are the ones that ultimately, I think, are the most pleased consistently because they'll get one or the other during the week."
