Fox renewed the sci-fi series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
In my sci-fi journalism career, I have never typed "Fox" and "sci-fi TV" and "renew" in the same sentence.
Credit must go to the Facebook site Pre-Emptive Strike: Save the Sarah Connor Chronicles, run by Kspace, a loyal underling of RevolutionSF.
And hey, Summer Glau finally gets to do a second year of a show that is pretty good.
Let us try to understand this together. Here are reasons why Fox would ever go against its natural sci-fi cancellation instincts.
Too busy. It takes a while to consume the souls of American Idol voters through phone lines.
Exercising cancelling arms. They convinced Joss Whedon to do Dollhouse for them. It's so important to warm up first.
Brainstorming ways to get Chris Carter Since the new X-Files movie is not on Fox TV, he thinks he is free. Ha!
Brian Austin Green. He played a teenager for 35 years on the Fox show 90210. He knew the Fox executives when they were just little bitty show-canceling babies.
