Why I Can't Stop Watching 'Terminator'

Terminator: The Sarah Chronicles is far from a perfect show. It's got a whole host of problems, not the least of which that Lena Headey isn't all that interesting as The Mother of the Future. The Inspector Javert-like FBI agent tracking her feels like either a wasted character or he's being wasted. And I still don't know what the driving impulse of the show—what each season will be building towards—aside from "Don't let them kill John."

But at least once an episode, something just jaw-droppingly stunning occurs that keeps me tuning in. And this one...man, it just fucking slams it home.

The uncle from the future introduces his nephew from the present to the father he's never met. Beautiful stuff.

EDIT: Apparently, the clip is no longer available and I am now not as in love with Hulu as I used to be.

I absolutely loved that scene. I might have even teared up just a little. I'm just saying...good choice.---Abby
