|02:49 pm - Small Steps in the media: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles|
Last night's T:SCC surprised me in a good way. Not only did it feature a transsexual (MtF) character, but the character actually talked (somewhat indirectly) about being trans in a remarkably realistic fashion. Of course, this same character was dead by the end of the episode, but I see this less as another case of transsexuals in media must die and more proof of the fact that with the exception of the protagonists, pretty much every modern day person who comes into contact with the robots dies. There are exceptions, but not many. In any case, it's definitely one of the best shows currently on TV, I hope moving it to Fridays, before the likely wretchedness and near certain failure of Whedon's Dollhouse won't kill it off.
