That's going to be tough.  Don't they have like 4 shows that normally air Monday nights?  Prison Break, 24, Terminator, and do they run American Idol on Mondays later on?

Oh, and I wish they would have kept River a bit more normal in public like she was in school in the pilot.  It just feels like they reverted her a bit just for the comedic value.

One thing I do like is that the skeletons of the Terminators is different.  I wonder if this is a result of a different past in developing them or if they're a pre-T800 model.  Although, I thought the 800 was the first one that had the human tissue in order to pass through the time travel device.

I actually rather like the way the "Rivernator" character behaves - she's relatively sociable compared with other Terminators, and she's capable of making simple small talk about fairly unpredictable things the way humans can, but more complex personal issues are just a BIT beyond her programming.  I remember reading a book (though I can't remember for the life of me what it was called or who wrote it) that detailed the differences between the way computers "think" and process information to the way humans do it.  Ultimately, it came to the conclusion that Strong AI would take a lot more than processor speed to develop - I'm pretty sure the author believed it to be impossible.

I mean, after all, she's a ROBOT, and should be written as one.

Yeah, I think this version of the Terminator is a bit more socially curious. The Arninator had no interest in socially bonding or blending in. He was there to do his job. The Summernator (What IS her character's name again? I wanna call her by name, but I always forget. :^)) asks for clarification on things and investigates. She's trying to fit into a society. She's Pinochio, and I have a feeling that's going to be a recurring theme throughout the show, and I like that. :^)

Let's just call her DATA then if we're gonna go through ST:TNG Episodes with her.

  I don't think she's got a genuine interest in acting or becoming more human (assuming she can even have genuine interests). Her motivations seem to revolve around her mission parameters only, so in this way she's very unlike Data. Frankly I hope they don't go in that direction with her. It'd be nice, for once, to watch a robot comfortable with being a robot.

We'll see, but that is the logical progression....assuming the show lasts 2 seasons.

(What IS her character's name again? I wanna call her by name, but I always forget. :^))

Hint: She is ever-so-subtly named after an obscure director who may have done one or two robot movies a while ago.

This is quickly becoming my new favorite show! I ienjoyed the 3rd episode, but do to unavoidable events I missed the two night premiere. Can someone give me a recap of what happened? Details would be nice. :)

I thought I'd bump this thread up in light of the newest episode, which in my opinion is the best one yet.

Shh! I haven't watched it yet! Really enjoying this show, by the way.
