What I'm Watching: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 1, Episode 6 “Dungeons & Dragons” (C-)

Those opening and closing quotes are really getting to me, and not in the good sense. Why this episode flashes forward so much to tell us information we do not need to know is a mystery to me. The future is for the most part a desolate wasteland where the only interesting thing is the half-cool visual effects which hide a lot less than they show. The time machine is a bit more fun, but it sucks that they had to cut the flash-forward before we got to see a future John Connor. It seems like it would have been a much more interesting show if the plot centered around the freedom fighters sent from the future. No such luck. Interesting to see that Derek was the one who did kill Andy, and also that Cameron might not be good after all.
