Terminator update: The Freaking Big Push campaign

Season two of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles comes out on DVD and Blu-ray in two weeks (Sept. 22) and the fans at have launched a massive campaign — The Freaking Big Push — to promote the release.

With news that the show might come back as a straight-to-DVD film and that producer James Middleton is still working on making this happen, it is essential that the DVD sales are big enough to convince Warner executives that picking up the story where it left off would be a good idea.

From the site:

The Freaking Big Push is a massive campaign directed at Warner Brothers to demonstrate our love for the show and convince the WB to bring it back. According to a loyal, anonymous source, there is talk of a DVD movie. It’s our objective to convince the WB to make sure this happens. The campaign is broken down into various missions which will each launch on a specific date throughout the month. We can’t stress enough how important it is that everyone do these things on the same day. The only way to make a real impact is with strong numbers, pushing each avenue together on a daily basis, together.

The campaign has been supported by people related to the show. Thomas Dekker recorded a message for the fans the other day (visit the Sarah Connor Society for the video) and Ashley Miller has helped spread the word on Twitter.

Terminator preview: Today Is the Day, Part One

Here is a quick look at John Henry (AWOL from the show for a month now) in tonight’s episode of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, “Today Is the Day, Part One,” from the Terminator blog:

The episode was written by Zack Stentz (who posted an entry on the official blog earlier today) and Ashley Miller. Guest stars include Busy Philipps as Kacy, Chad Coleman as Queeg, Erin Fleming as Goodnow, and Yuri Lowenthal as Garvin.

The synopsis says:

As Jesse struggles to recover following her brutal fight with Riley she flashes back to 2011, where in the underground Resistance she was chosen for a life-altering mission aboard a small submarine. Back in the present, Sarah and John (unaware of Riley’s murder) decide to move out of the house. They debate whether or not to bring Cameron with them as the rift between all of them, started by Riley and Jesse in the first place, begins to widen even more.

The show airs tonight at 8PM/9PMc on Fox.
