Saw the premire of the new Terminator franchise, and the verdict: So far, so good! The casting of Summer Glau was an awesome choice by directors (If you're having a hard time placing the name, think "Firefly" and "Serenity".... River Tam...). The CGI was great for the budget, and yes...the writing was a bit weak, but they kept to the smaller story elements to give it consistency and the pace was good. For a first shot, I'm impressed. It needs refinement but alot better than I thought it would be. I got hopes for it. Whether or not it will last will be an interesting. Sci-Fi rarely gets a fair shake on network television.
