TSCC: CNN good for something after all! Picks up SAVE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES movement….

(CNN) — …..It was a daring, surprising, brilliant cliffhanger for a show that’s gained a loyal following, particularly among people like me who are in awe of it. It also opens the door to anyone who hasn’t discovered this show yet, allowing for a fresh start…

..Ending on this Season 2 cliffhanger would be a shame….When Fox picked up this “Terminator,” it took on one of the most successful sci-fi franchises in modern entertainment history. It courted “Terminator” fans, as well as people like me who never gave much thought to the movies but appreciate deep, high-quality TV storytelling. Ending on this “what happens now” cliffhanger would leave a gaping hole in the franchise’s history.

..But of bigger concern, of course, is that “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” is just really good TV — the kind that you want to believe can last. And that’s thanks to Josh Friedman, the inspired executive producer. For him, “Terminator” isn’t about special effects and metal monsters. It’s a family drama; a mother and son entrusted with a huge secret and the responsibility to change the future, no matter what the cost.

Without clobbering you with messages, Friedman gets you thinking — about people whose secret struggles you can’t know, about living with trauma and moving forward, about the strength and fragility of teenagers, and about the otherwise impossible things parents manage to do to protect their children. Sarah is parental adrenaline personified. It’s also a show about cancer. We know Sarah can successfully battle robots, evil people and well-meaning authorities who want her locked up. But will cancer ultimately do her in? Friedman has talked about the show serving as a catharsis for his own real-life battle against cancer….

Fans can’t wait to find out what happens with Sarah (Lena Headey) in the new reality. Did she follow her son into the future? If not, what happened to her?

TSCC: No Fate: Wired: Act Today: Sarah Connor Season Three…

No Fate Baby!!!

Wired has the latest (go Digg! the article!!):

At this very moment, Fox Broadcasting executives somewhere in a pre-apocalyptic Los Angeles are said to be weighing the future of the best sci-fi show on television — Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. If you’re a fan of the show, this may be your last chance to save it from Judgment Day. If you’re not a fan, keep reading to find out why you should become one.

..Which brings us to your mission: Save Sarah. Over at sci-fi enemy-blog io9, they’ve started a Flickr group featuring viewers posing with products advertised on the show, giving sponsors and executives important proof that Chronicles fans — unlike those deadbeats watching Ghost Whisperer — are willing to put their money where their eyeballs are.

You can also show your appreciation by becoming a fan of the show on Facebook, or joining all the Facebook groups dedicated to saving Sarah Connor Chronicles. And visit the Terminator wiki to learn where to address a supportive e-mail to the executives who’ve made the show possible.

Finally, if you’ve never seen the show, or gave up on it prematurely, Amazon.com has DVD and download options for catching up. Needless to say, a boxed set of Sarah Connor is the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

New Kindle for College Texts to be unveiled Wednesday…

I’m jealous, I LOVE my first generation Kindle don’t get me wrong, but I want more memory and battery life too!

Here is the review of the first Kindle which I LOVE MADLY:

OMG!!!! ASU is getting them??!! What!! Okay I am going back for a PhD in…something…something needing a Kindle….


..new version of its Kindle e-book reader with a larger screen and other features designed to appeal to periodical and academic textbook publishers…

…Amazon has worked out a deal with several textbook publishers to make their materials available for the device, Mr. Gonick added. The new device will also feature a more fully functional Web browser, he said. The Kindle’s current model, which debuted in February, includes a Web browser that is classified as “experimental.”

Five other universities are involved in the Kindle project, according to people briefed on the matter. They are Pace, Princeton, Reed, Darden School at the University of Virginia, and Arizona State.

..A larger-screen Kindle would enable textbook publishers to better display the charts and graphs that aren’t particularly well suited to the current device, which has a screen that measures just six inches diagonally. But digitizing academic books could also hurt the thriving market for used textbooks on college campuses.


Man these kids have it good…I want one dammit :0)
