I guess we'll get the CTV simsub tonight since both networks are airing the second episode at the same time (9:00 pm).

Off topic but the FOX episode had a really long preview of the upcoming movie 10,000 BC during one of the commercial intermissions - in HD too! Looked pretty impressive for a commercial!

2 thumbs up!

I thought it was great. Very much in the style of the Terminator movies and carried on the story as if T3 had never happened (a very wise choice). If they can keep it fresh, it will be one of the better shows on TV this year.

Watched it on FOX @ 8:00pm in HD...CTV had it at 9:00 in HD.

I like it so far.....replaces Journeymen for us since they pulled the plug on that show. Let's hope this one lasts!


Cheers

The only complaint I had is that for an advanced cyborg from the future, that (enemy) Terminator is sure a bad shot :P

Hopefully this series will have a strong run, but I definitely won't make the mistake of getting too attached to any show with FOX at the helm.

Tonight's episode was going so well on HDFOX 529 until just after the first break and then CTV took over and now the sound is just so slightly out of synch. Anyone else have the lip synch problem?

Despite John's character being a bit of a weenie, I really enjoyed the pilot -- fast paced, nice special effects, and some great action moments. Definitely exciting. I'll tune in for the long haul!

Only downside was a technical issue. I recorded the pilot on Fox West last night, and the last few (?) moments/minutes were cut. Guess I need to find a website that'll let me stream the last little bit.

cheers,

Cool liked it, but...

I felt that they may have a bit too many plot holes already. 22 witness see a man with a robot leg shoot up a classroom...and the FBI choses not to believe them? The terminator almost gets them in the vault, after breaking down the door. After being zapped by Sarah, there's got to be pieces of him everywhere, and police saw him enter. Therefore, the establishment must know that Sarah Connor's story has some truth to it. I'm guessing, however, that the writers will ignore this.

I misunderstood the premier schedule, so I missed the second episode. Was it also enjoyable?

Live and let live.

So you're buying the whole "robots from the future" premise, but you're not buying a point of missed police procedures?

2nd episode was enjoyable. A little slower paced, but still very good.

Excellent show! Definitely better then anything else that's started up this past season. In HD and 5.1!

I missed episode two as well. It was supposed to be on a few days ago, and I recorded it, but when sitting down to watch it last night, I found it was a rerun of the pilot!

Doing a search on zap2it, the second episode is not being aired in HD in the near future. If you're willing to watch it in SD, it's on Space on Sunday at 6:00 pm.

I agree with sixer: it is better than any new show so far this year.

cheers,

My interpretation was that the lead investigator for the FBI was starting to act/look like he was becoming a believer...then in the future you see he has an informer relationship with Enrique which could also add to his believer status.
