Josh Friedman, the writer behind Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, has used the series production blog to address concerns over the future of the series.
In context with the creative direction of the series and the issue of a lack of action, Friedman points out:
“A note about the recent/current episodes: some months ago I determined to steer the show towards its title, towards Sarah Connor. I wanted to explore not simply the idea of chasing Skynet and all that that entails, but also the psychological effects of doing so. It wasn’t enough to just hunt/fight/protect; I wanted to see what was going on inside her head, especially when those around her doubted her. “
But if that wasn’t enough to partially mitigate cravings for more action and a little less drama, perhaps his comment regarding the finale will get some people excited:
“Tomorrow we will be attempting the most complicated, dangerous and largest stunt/effects sequence in the 31 episodes of this show. I have been thinking about the sequence since September and we have been planning it since before Christmas.”
He also acknowledges that the series has posed a lot of unanswered questions. In response, he has promised resolutions to a whole host of them before season 2 comes to a conclusion. But they are kind of spoilers, so if you want to read them, you’ll have to head on over to the production blog.
Finally, he also addressed that Grindhouse ad (the one that shares a weird advertisement with Dollhouse):
“Please understand this: I do not control how the show is marketed and advertised. If you liked the Grindhouse ad, thought it was tongue-in-cheek, I’m glad for you. If you felt it was inappropriate for the show, misrepresented it or made false promises, I also feel your pain.”
