Looking For The Passion

So you know I'm in a rut (I've decided to not call it a slump today) but I seem to get my 'romance' fix from TV lately. That said, there aren't too many shows with crazy sexual tension (X-Files) or enough romance. Heck, even LOST has 'lost' some of the romance.

Anyways, I've been watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I loved the Terminator movie except for the gory parts where I hid behind my hand - hey, I was young at the time. Even though it was an action movie, for me it was a great romance and no, it doesn't end HEA (just in case you've never seen it and you're thinking 'cool! Gotta See!!'). There is a scene in the movie that was so beautiful and then, kapow, some seriously hot kissing followed by really hot sex.

Since, for me, Terminator started with a love story (and with the show, it is clear that years later Sarah still loves the father of her son) I decided I should go on YouTube and see if I can find the scene that has always stayed with me in my mind.

Now, I should say, the ones I found have edited out an important moment in the film where Reese is packing up his gear and avoiding Sarah's eyes after admitting that he didn't travel through time to save the human race, he traveled through time for her. I'm telling you, heart pounding, sigh inducing it was.

Even though I can't find a clean cut of the scene I thought I would post some that I thought were good. Oh, and in case you don't know, the movie was done in the late 80's so that's what's up with the hair.

Of course, the only full version of the scene I can find is in French. Grrr. At about 2:48 start to watch and you can see what I mean about him getting up and walking away. Wish I could find the full English version!

I'm thinking I can thank Kristie for my new Youtube obsession.

Hi Cindy :D

this might be a stupid question, but Terminator... those are the movies with Arnold S. right?

Nath - yep - and they are the origin of 'I'll be back'.

Whew! Those clips were pretty hot. I have to admit I have never seen that movie because I hate violence. Bob took me to see Jaws years ago and I spent most of the movie with my hands over my eyes.

I haven't seen Teminator either although I did see the second one. But that scene is hawt! I'll have to keep my eye open when it comes on again.
And isn't YouTube fun?!?
