Now my TSCC obsession is full blown… (yeah, can anyone tell I am a late adapter to everything?) I listened and read a lot of related podcast or interviews by the Writers and Producers. I also saw a lot of fan reaction. And I am amazed to find a lot of people are against “The Robot Lovin’ Act of 2027”.
I mean there are a bunch of Jamerons fans as well, making music videos on youtube. But the writers, producers and fans that are serious enough to run a podcast about TSCC are not on board the HMS Jameron.
First of all I want to say I understand I do not want to see obvious Jameron stuff right out there unless it’s the end of the series (sadly, it is actually the end of the series). Because that is the interesting part of the story. To spell Jameron out clearly on screen would be the same as Lois finding out Clark Kent is Superman. It’s the deal breaker, I get it.
But people are against the basic concept of John Connor getting with a Terminator. As a BSG fan, it got me thinking., why is it relatively ok for BSG fans to accept people fraking Cylons than John falling for Cameron? We BSG fans by the end of the series almost don’t think twice about human cylon relationship. Even when the physco Sharon was killing everyone and lying to the poor Pegleg Gaeta, I still felt human cylon relationship is no big deal with .
Obviously the 12 humanoid models are pretty much biological beings. But if they had metal for bone and still acted the same, would that change how you feel about human Cylon relationship?
What about Data? Data is all machine, and had metal for bones. Why wasn’t there an outcry about Data getting down with the ladies? although Data isn’t programed to hunt down people, but if he was tempered with, he totally can be as formidable as a terminator (that’s if the TNG crew didn’t have phaser pistols).
Data for the mot part is also emotionless. So if Data has a soul, does Cameron not have a soul? If Cameron does have a soul, why are people against Jameron?
