asians on terminator: the sarah connor chronicles


I heard from a few folks that Eddie Shin was on last week's episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, along with Eric Steinberg as his father. They played two Japanese American tech guys running a computer company. Yeah, I know—computer geeks. But it somehow manages to weave a little bit of family backstory mentioning both the internment and the 442nd. It's an odd moment, but I thought both were pretty good in the episode. You can actually watch it online here.


Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen has also had a recurring role this season as Jesse, a love interest for Derek Reese. Battlestar Galactica fans might recognize her from last year's two-hour prequel Razor. I haven't regularly been watching this show, but her character's pretty intriguing, and I'm betting we'll see more of her. Plus, you gotta love her accent.
