As Fox and the CW prepare to present their slate for next season to advertisers this morning, Fox - fresh off a spring season where most of its new offerings tanked - is expected to add seven new shows, including a series based on the Terminator movies. Meanwhile, the young CW has reportedly decided to cancel the cult favorite Veronica Mars in favor of adding three dramas, a comedy and two unscripted shows. The highest-profile pilot expected to make Fox's slate is probably The Sarah Connor Chronicles, an action drama that fills in the gaps between Terminator 2 and Terminator 3. The David Nutter-directed pilot stars Lena Headey as Sarah Connor and Thomas Dekker as her son John, two people trying to prevent an Armageddon brought about by killer robots.

Thomas Dekker knew Heroes would be a hit but never thought his character would be around long enough to bask in the spotlight. Then again, the 19-year-old Dekker, an actor working steadily since age 5, never suspected that the past year would prove so good for his resume. In 12 months, he has played a recurring character in a hit TV series, signed on to a series adaptation of one of the most successful science fiction franchises in movie history and filmed a thriller he considers in the tradition of such horror classics as Halloween and The Exorcist.

If you haven't seen Linda Hamilton on screen since she played the buffed heroine of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," prepare yourself for a shock.Her latest character, Rosemary Holmstrom, is certainly every bit as brave as Sarah Connor in the "Terminator" films, but the menace she faces in "A Mother's Prayer" is AIDS, a disease that has stripped her of muscle and flesh.The USA film, airing at 9 tonight, is one of a series of earnest and well-crafted new movies with which the network is rebuilding its image.

When writer-director James Cameron makes an action/science-fiction/thriller -- like, say, "The Terminator" or "Aliens" or "The Abyss" -- he's not content to play safely within the conventions of the genre.Each time out, Cameron twists, stretches and punches through the boundaries of the form."I think it's essential," Cameron said. "Why would people go and pay to see something they've already seen? A film should transport you in some way."In "The Terminator," Cameron transported audiences to 2029, where a deadly cyborg is sent back in time to assassinate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton)

LOS ANGELES -- Residents who successfully fought plans to turn a closed hospital into a drug rehabilitation center in their neighborhood geared up for a new battle when barbed wire and a guard tower went up at the hospital.But the concern disappeared when the homeowners learned that conversion of the former Lake View Medical Center into a maximum-security mental hospital was only temporary -- and only make-believe.The vacant hospital is being converted into a set for Arnold Schwarzenegger's new film, "Terminator 2," in which he and Linda Hamilton will reprise their roles from the 1984 film.

He said he'd be back and he meant it.Caparisoned in black leather, encapsulated in shades under a punk brush cut, carrying enough firepower to devastate the entire LAPD, possessed of the same remorseless will, the big guy with the erector-set endoskeleton and computer-chip brain presides over $80 million worth of frenzy in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," which is the biggest, loudest damn movie of the season.If it shoots, burns or can be blown up, it's in this film.Director James Cameron's follow-up to the astonishingly resonant "Terminator" of 1984 cost roughly 13 times as much as the original and it's not quite as good, but it's nevertheless a powerful, thrilling document, combining a driving story and an impassioned concern over nuclear war with a vivid dosage of movie-style mega violence, tough-guy romanticism and special effects that are literally unbelievable.

You have to love the stripped-down dialogue of the Fox action-adventure series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. "If you die, they win," Sarah (Lena Headey) screams at her 16-year-old son, John (Thomas Dekker), at the start of tonight's Season 2 premiere. That is just in case - with the writers' strike interrupting last year - anyone forgot the premise of a 16-year-old kid as the savior of the human race against an army of cyborgs. I liked the series last year primarily because of the frenetic pace and the muscular energy of Headey as heroine.
