Thanks to Piers Beckley for a heads-up to the fact that Josh Friedman, showrunner on The Sarah Connor Chronicles, has returned to blogging with this post on what it was like to be working on the Warners lot and waiting for word on his show’s fate.
I watched all the episodes of Sarah Connor. Didn’t necessarily love them all, sometimes didn’t even know what the hell was going on, but always found myself drawn back. Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker surely made the dourest mother-son pairing since Christmas at the Oedipus house, but the casting of Summer Glau as the protector-robot was a stroke of genius.
The prospect of another big-budget Terminator feature doesn’t thrill me too much. It’s like they’re obliged to be massively apocalyptic, and we’ve had that story. Whereas the long march from here to there seemed more suited to episodic television.
Life, though… Life‘s the cancelled show I think I’ll miss most. Apart from the obvious, of course.
