One of the few TV shows I have been watching this year has been “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”. I was pleasantly surprised how good it was last year in it’s mid-season short run. One of the things that stuck me was the unusual but very good casting of the show. Lena Headly from “300” as Sarah?… I thought she would be too soft but she’s got a nice balance between the paranoid pyscho of Linda Hamilton and a more human mother. Summer Glau as Cameron the female terminator? I thought she was too little and delicate but she’s the best part of the show. Other casting like Brian Austen Green and Garrett Dillahunt have also been surprisingly great at their roles.
The really struck a dud with this week’s sketch subject though… Garbage lead singer turned ‘actress’ Shirley Manson. Ugh, she is too mechanical to even play a robot convincingly. I love Garbage’s music but as an actress… bad call. Hopefully they’ll kill off her character quickly. The show is starting to crack at the seams with seemingly endless streams of humans and terminators coming back through time every week, but hasn’t quite jumped the shark yet.
