What I'm Watching: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 1, Episode 3 "The Turk" (D)

I know the writers are on strike, but can we get just a few to come over and rewrite the dialogue for this show? In the words of John Connor, "wait...what?" The girl's suicide and that whole "I'm a bitch-whore" moment do not belong in a show like this. This is supposed to be about Sarah Connor, but instead it makes the same mistake as "Heroes", with its cheerleader focus, and assumes its audience wants high school drama (head over to the CW to watch "Gossip Girl" or repeats of "One Tree Hill" for enough of that). There is still time to save this show, but enabling the Terminator to come back to life and assume human form is a dangerous mistake which may plague this show from start to possible forthcoming finish.
