TCA: A kinder, gentler Terminator in “Sarah Connor”

Sconnortca1A kinder, gentler Terminator? Well, that’s not quite what they’re going for in Fox’s upcoming smallscreen rendition of the action-pic franchise, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” But the Terminator who in this incarnation is hellbent on protecting Sarah Connor and her John will be in touch with her feelings in a way that the mean-spirited robo played by Arnold Schwarzenegger the three “Terminator” pics never was. And for sure, actress Summer Glau, who masquerades as John’s high school classmate Cameron (har har), has a different set of curves than Arnie’s muscle-bound Terminator of pics past. “Mine will be the most human of the Terminators so far,” Glau promised during “Sarah Connor’s” TCA sesh on Monday, suggesting that she’ll be very much in touch with her nuts and bolts even though her character “can’t genuinely feel emotion.”
