Hey, we got stoned and read The Hero With A Thousand Faces in college, just like everybody else, and we thought it was super deep. All those primal archetypes and spiritual patterns were totally…
We all hope Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will rock our TV screens, but chances are it won't. Over a dozen hit SF movies have morphed into live-action TV shows, and they all blew.
