    She looks really nice but she has the ability to look pretty scary, or maybe sinister is the right word, as well.

    Summer Glau is America's answer to Michelle Yeoh, a beautiful dancer turned movie martial artist superstar.

    Alas, the director doesn't know how to direct a decent fight scene.

    I'm glad that Summer Glau has a new acting gig now that The 4400 was canceled. I liked her in that one, but I like her much better as the helpful Terminator in this one. So far, so good with this show...I like it. I'm not that upset if it doesn't have the same producers and actors, and even if it's not perfectly following the canon.

    Yeah, Summer is totally hot. Although I have to question the judgement of the people of the future in sending a hot girl robot to a fifteen year old boy. Either someone got a great sense of humour or future John is pissed that he never got any in high school.

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing.


    I think she was made as the image of John's wife...

    She keeps getting in those shows that fall apart, hope she's making the right moves because her talents are just out of this world.

    I really enjoyed the premier and according to commercials, so did millions of other people. So hopefully this show has a longer life than Firefly.

    Yeah she is well fit! and i agree she can look quite sinister at times! specially when she played River in Firefly, sometimes she looked well scary! her face has a strange look about it somehow, but not in a bad way, but she has very unique features! very nice features! and body too!

There's just one issue I have; she's too cute and meek to play a Terminatrix. I have a hard time taking her seriously as a potent war machine because she's so damn good-looking. Hopefully her acting will sway me in the later episodes.


    Yeah but I assume that was the main reason why this "cute" Terminator was sent back as John's bodyguard: no one would expect this "cute" and little girl to be a super strong killing machine that is capable of executing anyone who is considered a threat to John and Sarah.

    Also the old cliche is that in most action TV shows it is a guy who protects the "damsel in distress."

    In this TV show, it is a girl Terminator and the mother who protect a teenage boy.

    that's what makes this show stand out from any other "action" genres

    Good call on the "girls protecting the guy" thing but its also possible that future John sent a young attractive terminator back because he knew that she would have to blend in with John at school. Could you imagine how awkward it would be walking through the halls with Arnold tailing you all day?

    hahaha... students would think twice before cheating!

    But I'm not sure future John were thinking about school when he sent her .
    Really... if I could send anything back to 95 as a present to myself, she would be it. But right now, I like Lena more.

    Summer's a perfect fit for the role of terminator Cameron IMO.

    I was surprised because I didn't even know she was on the show until it the first episode aired. The one scene that stands out to me in all three of the first episodes is when Cameron's head has gone through the windshield of the family's van and they're all sitting there freaking out thinking they've killed a girl.

    Then she looks at them and says "Please remain calm". LOL! I loved it! Summer really is an impressive actress.

    Yup, she's hot, she's 27 and i think the John Connor character likes Cameron and vise versa.

    Though I will admit , I haven't seen her before this show (infact when I watched the preair I knew nothing about the show only the movies, I thought she was a bit part/love interest in her first scene), I feel she is doing an awesome job on the show and has become for me the main reason I look forward to the upcoming episodes.
