I can confirm 8.
I'm actually not even looking forward to this show anymore. Honestly, I just want them to tell me what the freakin' island is about and be done with it. Getting a short season after waiting so long doesn't get me hyped up for it, it's actually a pain thinking that it'll just be getting up and going and then it's over for some indefinite period of time.
I like to get paid for working too, but this WGA strike is really just pissing me off at this point. There are at least 3 shows on that I love that have built-in ending plans (Lost, Smallville, BSG) that are all ****** up now because of this strike. If any of those three get canned before wrapping things up I'm driving to LA with a baseball bat to get some swings in at the picket lines.
Edit >> On topic, I'm digging the new Terminator series. There's a potential for it to get really goofy really fast, but so far I think it has a good balance. The Terminator finding his head was a little out there but other than that I've been fine with where they're headed.
