‘Sarah Connor Chronicles’ blogging: “Automatic for the People”
(previous: Episode 1: “Samson and Delilah”)
I find myself moved to snark on the robots from the future and the impending doom of the human race. Hey, it’s the way I roll. Feel free to discuss more in-depth in comments, should you be moved to do so.

Hey, it’s another guy from the future. Must be fun to be cannon fodder in the war with the machines: you get to go back to the more pleasant past and eat ice cream and look at girls in bikinis and stuff. Oh, unless you get killed along the way. Sorry about that, dude. But at least you’re dying in the nice past, instead of in the apocalyptic future.

That’s a New York area code, except NYC does NOT, for the umpteenth time, have alleys, and Sarah and Co. are supposed to be in Los Angeles anyway. What gives? Are we in the Matrix or something? I bet we’re in the Matrix.

There’s a whole bunch of Good Lessons to Remember from this week’s episode: Anti-radiation showers are no fun. Don’t play pool with a Terminator, no matter how cute she is — you’ll lose, and she’ll steal your identity to boot. But this is my favorite:
Lesson for the week: Nuclear reactors + Evil machines from the future ≠ Fun
