Is it me or is the volume really low on this show? I have to turn my TV volume up higher than normal, and then get blasted by the commercials. I don't think it's due to dyamiv range compression either...

I have a PS3 now, so I guess I do have Blu-ray. ;)

Yes, I noticed the low sound level, as well. I hope they get that straightened out in broadcasts of upcoming episodes.

That is mind boggling!

That miniskirt she wore later on in the 1st episode was ridiculously short- like "zero safety factor" short.

Tonight's episode was okay. Not a whole lot of action tonight except the fight scene between the two terminators.

I'll give it one more week to see if it gets any better.

CP: You're going to have to fight me for her...she is beyond amazing in this show. I'm seriously in love...

She is holding the show up though I do feel tonight's episode was a lot better and felt like it tied it in more with the timeline of the movies. I am along for the ride and if the ratings continue to trend like they did last night (seriously doubtful) we might get a full season run out of her)

Did I mention Summer is gorgeous?

I liked the way terminator-babe just calmly guns down Enrique. No mamby-pamby soft-hearted terminator like Arnie in T2. Go, T-babe, Go.

I like the skeletal terminator skulking amongst the homeless people dressed like those desert dwellers from Star Wars. Kind of creepy and funny at the same time.

Best line of the show "Please remain calm."

Mom on a Kawasaki..... I like that!
Always loved when JA rode the Ninja on Dark Angel, must just be something about girls on bikes that does it for me

Now if they can get Summer Glau on a rice burner regularly... I'll season pass this series right now, oh yeah!

How cool was the human head cramed over the endoskeleton's skull. I gotta say, I loved that part.

It wasn't on the skull...I think he/it just fixed it on top of the exo-skeleton so he would look "normal"...I assume he took the skull after killing that dude that found the skull

so is Penny (from Lost) a Terminator that will kill the paramedic husband as soon as he reveals that he saw John Connor?

also, why does T-Girl act like a robot (trying to mimic the gang girl outside the nephew's house) when we've already seen her act totally human (opening school scenes)?

Ok, if you can't take metal through the time portal, how did the Terminator's head make it through without any skin on it?

Maybe the skin was burning thru the portal, or some other clever excuse as to why. For what its worth, metal can , when encased w/ biological life (or something , I dont remember)

Furthermore, I love the reference to The Day After, their covers were from Lawrence, Kansas = great!

Both nights have been 4:3 with bars on my cable system.

Then I suggest you get the signal OTA. Of course, that might not work either, if the station is having splicer problems.
