If nothing else, Shirley Manson's casting is a welcome reminder of Garbage's glory days. Just reading the news inspired me to pick up a greatest hits compilation, which has been on heavy car rotation of late. Does she tone down her accent? Only it's hard not to entertain the idea of a ruthless killing machine speaking in thick, borderline-incomprehensible Scottish, and the hilarious Brad-Pitt-in-Snatch moments that would ensue at inappropriate dramatic moments. Anyway! Having just reached the now-legendary episode 6 on the DVD, I'm impressed. While the first few episodes were enough to convince me it was a good series, Dungeons and Dragons was the moment it became a good Terminator series. Then Charlie said "there's a storm coming", and I wanted to stand and cheer.
