Critic Reviews for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

...a classic cliffhanger, but one that opened the door to a wealth of intriguing new possibilities.

It's a step in the right direction for a series that struggled to live up to its potential and pedigree last spring.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has some of the same problems that has faced the movie franchise...Throughout the season, it was getting hard to keep track of what the Connors' objective was...

April 16, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Gritty writing, vivid characters and dynamic visual style did not attract enough audience to justify the budget and it was cancelled after the superb season...most riveting is the evolution of the robots, making them more "human" and less predictable.

April 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Weaver's interest in rules -- specifically, in the ways humans don't follow them and computers do -- is of a piece with the series' own.

April 16, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The Sarah Connor Chronicles may not be equally compelling from week to week, with some standalone episodes more formulaic than others, but one has to hand it to Friedman and his writing team.

Audience Reviews for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 2


They're back. The Connors continue the fight against Skynet into a second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. With the help of a future resistance fighter the Connors are given a list of names of people and places that are potential Skynet targets; meanwhile a T-1000 impersonates a tech company CEO and works on developing an A.I. Dealing with time travel, alternative reality, and spirituality, the show presents some very interesting ideas and concepts. Additionally, the main cast delivers some impressive performances (particularly Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green). However, a little after midseason the show goes to sh** with a 5 to 6 episode arc that kills the momentum of the series and sends it off on a bizarre tangent with aliens and government conspiracies (and was likely the cause of the show's cancellation). Still, the season finishes strong with a finale that opens up a number of fascinating possibilities of where the series could go. Season 2 of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a bit uneven and makes some terrible missteps, but it can also be quite powerful and compelling at times.
