FOX (ended 2009)
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.
LOL, I was thinking the same thing.
|Forget Firefly, she was great in 4400, a show that was much better than Heroes is|
|27?!?! Well, now I don't feel like a dirty old man for checking her out. She looks 17... and I agree. She's adorable with those big, anime eyes and soft features. 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.
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?
