This Season Premiere Sets The Stage For A Much More Exciting Season
The premiere is an hour long fallout from what happened in the finale, with Sarah and John going up against Sarkissian and eventually going on the run from their nearest and dearest robot daughter/sister. Summer Glau is brilliant in this episode! Derek and Charley are just along for the ride. Meanwhile, Ellison is having a tough time recovering from the devastation brought on by Cromartie. Also meanwhile, there’s a new head of operations in town and she looks and sounds a lot like a certain rock band’s lead singer (Shirley Manson from Garbage joins the cast this season). Her character is directly involved in the only “oh my gosh” moment I had in the whole show.
All in all, I got the sense that this season premiere sets the stage for a much more exciting season, but it was a lot of groundwork being laid down in the first episode. I’m not counting the show out for the season – I just hope episodes beyond this one keep me on the edge of my seat.
