Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Queen's Gambit - S1-E5

Trivia: Cameron meets a prototype robot that smiles and waves at her in in the exhibition outside the chess tournament.

Trivia: The name "Cameron" is chosen as a tribute to director James Cameron who directed the first two films.

Trivia: Lena Headey plays Sarah Connor, mother of John Connor (Thomas Dekker). In real life, Headey is only 14 years older than Dekker.

Trivia: Season 2, Episode 22 "Born to Run." Towards the end, Sarah Connor refers to Weaver as a lying Terminator. This is the only time in the entire series where the word "Terminator" is spoken.

Trivia: Series 2 Episode 3, "The Mousetrap": George Lazlo's appearance in "Beast Wizard 7" (which John and Kacy watch clips of on TV) is an obvious parody of Conan the Barbarian, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, who also played the Terminator in the original films.

Samson & Delilah - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: All shots of the Jeep Cherokee prior to it crashing (and during the process of flipping over) show that it wears factory-optional silver steel wheels of a 'star' style. But as the wreck settles upside-down, it's wearing plain steel wheels (like those found under full wheel covers or on a spare tire).
