Trivia

Andy refers to the original Turk, created in 1770, as an automaton, which the device was purported to be. However, since the mid-nineteenth century, the Turk has been known to be merely a magic illusion, with a human being sitting within the machine playing chess, rather than the machine itself.

Goofs

When Cromartie forces the scientist to make the synthetic skin, we get a shot of the scientist in the bathroom with the robot who has an over coat on. In the next shot, we see the scientist becoming amazed at the sight of the robot without the coat. If you compare the gigantic size of the robot that they show next, with the figure that was in the overcoat, there is an obvious difference in size. The real Cromartie could never fit in that small of an overcoat. See more »

Quotes

John Connor: Have you ever heard of the Singularity? It's a point in time where machines become so smart that they're capable of making even smarter versions of themselves without our help. That's pretty much the time we can kiss our asses goodbye... unless we stop it.

No One Dies in Vain
21 January 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While John and Cameron adapt themselves in the new high-school, Sarah visits Terissa Dyson at Myles' grave with pictures of the possible inventor of SkyNet. Sarah identifies the former intern of Cyberdyne Andy Goode. Sarah discovers that Andy is working as cell phone salesman and she visits him in the store where he works. She accepts his invitation for dinner and finds that he has not concluded his computer science bachelorship, but he has been developing a powerful computer at home to play chess. Cameron has difficulties to understand the human emotions and John is affected by the attitude of a suicidal teenager. Meanwhile the Terminator seeks out a scientist and helps him in his research to regenerate his skin. Agent James Ellison arrives out of the blue in the investigation of a killing and but the agent responsible for the case restrains him.

In this episode, Sarah tries to stop the creation of SkyNet destroying the invention of a guy with great potential. John questions his fate of hero after being contained by Cameron and not saving a girl from jumping off the school roof. The Terminator regenerates his tissue with the support of a scientist, but the best part of the show is Cameron trying to understand the human feelings and emotions. My vote is seven.
