Disclaimer: This post is all really just about hot chicks. Proceed at your own peril.

So I didn't take my friend Rob Marmolejo's advice, as I normally don't listen very well to anyone, and I have ignored the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-2009). I remember when it first came out I was pretty excited because I'm a huge fan of the Terminator movies, but the first two episodes disappointed. Well, as Marmle's told me, it got a lot better after the first few episodes. The character development picks up, and the plot does indeed thicken.

Sarah Connor (Lena Headey),
John Connor (Thomas Dekker), and "Cameron" (Summer Glau)

Since for some reason I can never sleep during finals, I figured I'd turn on the good ol' Netflix and watch some episodes. I just wanted to make a few quick comments/observations about the show, here at 1:04 AM.

Naturally television is filled with good looking people. It's a wonder I am not on television yet. With that aside, the producers/whoever of Sarah Connor Chronicles really have outdone themselves with casting. Now I'm as straight as John Madden and Jerry Falwell wrapped into one, but damn, even the guys look good. The acting is superb, and the primary casting is sexy as hell. Let's do a photo lineup and some comparisons.

Linda Hamilton in T2

Linda Hamilton played Sarah Connor in The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). She is the iconic Sarah Connor, and has really created the persona. She is like what Henry Winkler is to the Fonz. Eyyyyy! Now, don't get me wrong, she wasn't a bad looking female in the 1980's, but she is certainly no Heidi Klum. For the recent TV series, Sarah Connor is played an actress/mega-hottie named Lena Headey.

Lena Headey being hot.

I mean dayum! Just look at that girl's mid-section. I bet it's bulletproof. Headey is an English actress, and she is probably a model too. She's been in some films before, but nothing big that I can remember off the top of my head. One interesting thing about her is that she was in an independent film released in 1992 called Waterland. (not Waterworld) I just realized this when taking a closer look at some of her pictures on Google when trying to find a picture for this post. Her face stood out to me in the following picture and I almost instantly recognized her as the 13/14 year old girl in Waterland

compare with her in Waterland

She was more modest looking back then,
but hey it was the early 90's.

One of these days I'll probably do a post about Waterland. That was a really interesting movie. BUT, I will continue on to the next ridiculously hot chick in the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Summer Glau, obviously the
"good guy" Terminator.

I mean, if you thought that wrinkly old bag Lena Headey was hot, I mean dayum, the producers of this show really aren't muckin' with a G on this one. They went straight up gold. Summer Glau is an American actress originally from Texsauce. She is gorgeous, and does a surprisingly good job playing a Terminator for being a smokin' hot babe. Maybe I'm just stunned by her... assets.

Another one for good measure... yowser.

So you have at least two reasons to check out the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Think about it. I know I think about it every day. Haha!
