Okay, I still have a few Super Bowl blipverts to address, but just as it is with the Island on 'Lost', Time moves at a different pace in Toobworld than it does in the Real World.

In the meantime, here's a commercial from Sweden for the
ATG Vinnare V75, which I guess is a televised horse race. (The caption at the end translates to: “Winners 75 - live horsepowers on TV4 Saturdays at 6.05 PM”.)

But as we usually ignore the captions in Toobworld, the concept of this commercial greatly suggests 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles'. We've already seen in the series that a Terminator can rebuild itself from its dismantled parts left behind in a junkyard. So the same principle must be applied here, only with a cyborg horse, of course, of course.

Hey, maybe Skynet needed to send back a "T-Biscuit" to deal with the talking horses of the Houyhnhm race, found in the mini-series adaptation of 'Gulliver's Travels'. (And in case you didn't know, 'Mr. Ed' was also a Houyhnhm.)

Whenever this one was sent back, it was after the most recent Terminator arrival, Cromartie (now known as "George Laszlo"). It's had an upgrade in that it can replenish its own synthetic skin tissue, so that it can pass for an ordinary horse.

Will we ever see this "Flicka-bot" show up on the 'Terminator' series?

I've got a sneaking suspicion that the answer is "Neigh"......

Sorry about that, Chief.
