Expect Fox to cancel it after 3 episodes

I’m not sure what to make of this: Via Damien Mulley On one hand the first two Terminator films were great, the third was a bit pants, and too self-referential and mocking. On one hand it has Summer Glau in it, and who doesn’t love Summer?, but on the other, it has Fievel Mousekewitz in […]
