I'm DVRing this, so no spoilers yet please...

I expect it to either be good or horrible... but I'm starting the thread because I'm amazed this thing got off the ground. Reading the description and the name "Terminators" I can't believe the folks that own the rights to the Terminator franchise haven't steamrolled it already.

If they watched the first 10 minutes or so like I did, I'm sure they realized that this would self-destruct and wouldn't be worth the hassle.....

Forgot to record it, which may be a good thing. Was it so bad, they aren't repeating it? Usually SyFy repeats things to death.

Golly gee, I thought maybe when they became "Syfy" they'd also make a good movie or two.

Can this channel ever air these type of movies without someone assuming they made it? ( http://theasylum.cc/product.php?id=154 )

It's scheduled to repeat twice next month.

Still haven't watched it yet... I don't always assume Syfy makes the movies they show, but I was assuming someone ought to have been sued already for copyright infringement. The fact that this movie ever got aired anywhere is a surprise to me.

Whats funny is did you take a look at the "Who Starring" list?
Either the same 3 people played every part or they made a huge typo :)

I thought 'Tin Man' was pretty good. But I guess that was a miniseries.

I also was going to make that observation but didn't get around to it. I guess miniseries don't count as movies?
