Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Dungeons and Dragons 1×06 review

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Dungeons and Dragons 1×06 is an episode with a stupid name but is probably the best episode of the series and considering that it is only the sixth episode of the series and that there is stiff competition for the title, that alone is a definite credit to the series and makes you regret that this season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will only have nine episodes. Hopefully Fox will renew TSCC instead of doing something stupid and replacing it with another New Amsterdam.

I wouldn’t have ever thought an episode centering on Brian Austin Green of all people would be the stand out episode of the series but Dungeons and Dragons is, from its grim depiction of the totalitarian future under Skynet in which men live like rats in the walls of a shattered Los Angeles to the brief yet sharp edged character interactions in the present between Sarah Connor and her ex, Cameron and John Connor, Dungeons and Dragons in one viewing sums up why this series is so good and it’s the episode you should be showing people to make them see it too.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Dungeons and Dragons was done on a TV budget but it still stands out for the future scenes, for the desperation and paranoia of the chained prisoners in the mansions, for the presence of Andy Goode lying on the floor and confessing to being responsible for destroying the world, for the desperation and hopelessness, for that scrap of burned photograph and for the poignant hope of a gateway into the past and a chance to save the world.

    That’s showing some love! You’re so right thugoh and the CD by Bear McCreary is up there with Brad Fiedel’s Terminator 2 score. I’m also feeling more optimistic about the decision on May 18 than I was a month ago. Surely Fox will have noticed everything the rest of us have. I also believe Dollhouse will be cancelled and I’m sure that only makes the decision to renew TSCC a little easier. If they were renewing Dollhouse then I would imagine that would make the decision harder, but clearly TSCC is the more popular show by a long way.
