While not being the most spectacular show on television, The Sarah Connor Chronicles does a very good job of not being completely offensive to Terminator fans and that’s the least we could ask. However, there is one aspect of the show that’s completely unbelievable… John Connor never tries to have sex with his Terminator protector-bot, Cameron.
Look, I’m a male. I know what it’s like to be a teenage male. You’ve got all kinds of crazy hormones raging in you and you’re ready to pounce on anything if given the slightest chance. You’re telling me some robot chick from the future is around you all of the time and you wouldn’t try to get on her? I call bullshit. I’m not a big Summer Glau fan, in fact I find her creepy looking even when she’s not an emotionless killer robot from the future with a forehead that goes for days. But seriously, John isn’t getting it from anywhere else. Sure he’s got that super annoying blonde girl hanging around (Dear writers: Please kill her soon!), but do they have sex? Nope, instead of doing what normal teens do when left alone they sit up all night looking at the ceiling and talking in bed.
I can’t accept the excuse that he’s got too much to worry about what with the end of the world coming and all to bother with sex. The kid acts like a teen in all other respects, including being annoying and (I’m sure) listening to rap music (or CRAP music as I like to call it). Either John Connor is gay and doesn’t know it yet or there’s something wrong with him.
