TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES Season 2 Episode 6 “The Tower Is Tall But The Fall Is Short” – Discussion

Did you just watch “The Tower Is Tall But The Fall Is Short”, tonight’s TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES? If so, what did you think?

I think this was oddly enough a very telling episode in many ways. Here are a few of the things that we learn:
– We learned that Catherine Weaver is not very good at being a mom. (Seriously, She’s freaking scary)
– We learned that Cameron can whoop some tin can butt with ease. (Chick Fight!)
– We finally learned what happened with Sarah and John in the season premiere .(Duh!)
– We learn that Derek is not really a good jogger (Dude, who eats a hot dog after a run!)

I believe that, in one episode, the writers set up several interesting story lines that will make the series that much more interesting. Especially with the A.I with the jokes.

The thing that bugged me as I was watching this episode was realizing how bad the machines were at pretending to be human. They can’t take a joke, they have no idea of what to say in social situations. How can they can be so good at building sophisticated and technically impressive weapons but they can’t crack a smile when needed?

What do you think? Does this makes sense to you?
