    anyone watched the leaked pilot?

    I really must say it totally makes up for T3. It is as if T3 never existed :wiggle:

    I watched about half of it before my player and pc crapped out on me. I was very impressed with what I saw. I hope the whole series is just as good.

    I liked and will watch the series (however long it lasts).

    I didn't like T3, so I think ignoring it is a good thing IMHO.

    it is on no channel at the moment. The pilot was leaked on the internet. I believe it airs in January.

    my favorite part was when sarah ducked behind the recliner and the terminator shot the shit out of it but the chair stopped all the bullets LMAO.
    terrible show, it won't last long. terminator has so many great angles you could run with i can't understand why they couldn't have come up with a better show than that. seriously a recliner took about 10 bullets and stopped them all, that cloth and padding sure does hold up well.

    acting was 5/10
    plot 6/10
    overal it came off as just silly and poorly executed.
    i'd give that show 5/10, i'll watch 1 more show at least in case it bounces back, but honestly that was pretty damn silly.

    and i wanted to like this show, i loved T1, Loved T2, liked T3 and hated the sarah conner chronicles episode 1 lol. that show was terrible, glad i have DVR so it only wasted about 40 minutes of my life

    I saw the first episode, but I won't get to see the others as I work at night. Unless there is some place on the internet that I can catch the weekly episodes...

    saw both episodes pretty decent show so far, hopefully they can develop the plot more so it becomes something that you crave to watch every week...

    spoiler below,,sort of, in case you haven't seen 2nd episode maybe don't read this although i doubt it's enough of a spoiler to matter in any way

    2nd episode was a huge improvement from the 1st. i'll be watching the 3rd episode for sure. that 1st episode though,,,,,,wow that was bad, anytime writers for a show think that a lazy-boy can stop multiple gunshots from a terminator and stop them all from penetrating it's durable fabric and protecting sarah conor as she ducks behind it lol well all i can think is maybe they had that chair stain protected and maybe that coating is able to withstand gunshots lmao. there were so many problems with the 1st episode i don't know what to say but i think the chair part summed it up well.

    the 2nd episode however seemed like they fired all the writers and hired new ones cause suddenly the show seemed to have a plot (the guys from the future sent back to help is pretty cool) and they quit with the stupid bulletproof chair crap.

    i hope that the rest of the shows are like the 2nd episode not the 1st cause the 1st episode was awful.

    You do realise that the chair was explained in that episode to have kevlar in it, right?

    the show seems alright thus far except
    the I will not die terminator from '99 who's head time travels as it was blown off in the even though it wasn't covered in living flesh ... not to get too up in arms about the lack of consistency but the whole story of that terminator starting back up once the head is found seems pretty lame since there are other terminators in 2007.

    the acting isn't great, the female terminator is especially bad, she has to be someone importants daughter to get the job i think lol
