VIDEO: Sarah Connor's Son Warns, "No One Can Be Trusted" in Season 2

If you think you got to know Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles after just nine episodes, think again. As Thomas Dekker told me here during a location shoot, the new batch of episodes will be "very different" and (get this) "100 times better." "The level of everything has been raised," he says. "Something happens that immediately changes [John]. A lot of people wanted to see [him fulfill his destiny], and now they will. He's a cold soldier."Dekker also teases what's ahead for John and new love interest Riley (played by Leven Rambin, at the 2:30 mark); raves about TV mom Lena Headey, who apparently rocks hard at bumper cars (3:20), and talks about meeting John Connor's father both on screen and in real life (3:55). T:SCC launches its second season Monday at 8 pm/ET. — Matt MitovichRelated:• On the Set VIDEO: Summer Glau reveals what's next for Cameron• Lena Headey VIDEO: Is Sarah Connor Gunning for Romance?• VIDEO: Meet Terminator Newcomer Leven Rambin&... read more

Young Hollywood Awards Bring Hot Stars, Cool Scoop

Thomas Dekker by Jeffrey Mayer/

"It takes a special kind of person to be part of young Hollywood," host Aisha Tyler told the audience at Hollywood Life's 10th Annual Young Hollywood Awards, before rattling off the undergarmentless achievements of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and friends. But at Avalon nightclub, the young ones honored were far from the scandalous kind. Chris O'Donnell, America Ferrera, J.J. Abrams and more took center stage to honor those on the cusp of breaking through, purely on the basis of their talent. TV Guide caught up with Thomas Dekker on the red carpet, who, despite sweltering conditions, was the epitome of cool. And for good reason — Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles are back this fall, bigger than ever. "I'm so excited. We're going to have to crank [the episodes] out pretty quick because we're going on in October." Viewers can look forward to an action-packed 13 episodes. "A lot of very dark twists immediately take place right at the beginning," teases Dekker.... read more

When I first heard they were ...

Question: When I first heard they were making a TV show based on the Terminator films, I was reluctant to get excited. It seems my reluctance was well-founded. The show is totally uneven. I know they can't do as much on TV as they can in a film, but I know for sure that TV can do much better than this. First of all, the acting is sub par at best. Summer Glau, whom I loved in Firefly, hasn't exactly won me over as the new Terminatrix. In fact, and I can't believe I'm saying this, she's actually giving me newfound respect for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Lena Headey is definitely not on par with Linda Hamilton. I would even go so far as to say that the character of Sarah Connor seems like a totally different person (though the writing may be equally to blame for this). Thomas Dekker is the only bright spot so far, and that isn't saying much. It almost seems like they just threw a cast (and the show) together all willy-nilly and simply assumed it would be successful just because it was based on ... read more
