The 1.1-acre compound includes several patios, a guesthouse, garage space for six cars and beach access. Expansive lawns, palm trees and boulders surround the swimming pool.

Linda Hamilton throws out her arms as if she suddenly sees an old lost friend and beckons him to her embrace. Hamilton's giddy enthusiasm, caffeinated energy and self-deprecating humor might surprise fans who remember her gritty Sarah Connor in the first two "Terminator" movies or D.A. Catherine Chandler in the TV series "Beauty and the Beast."

At a very short (half-hour) panel for NBC's "Chuck," producers announced that former "Terminator" babe Linda Hamilton has been signed to play Chuck's spy mom. For Season 4, Hamilton will play a recurring guest-star role as Mary Bartowski, who vanished mysteriously from the life of Chuck ( Zachary Levi) when he was a boy. "Hamilton will appear throughout the season, leading Chuck to discover that her life was shrouded in secrets," according to a news release. "She was a spy, a CIA agent ... and that's just the beginning."

It's a typical day around the Hamilton household--kids, cats and assorted neighbors and helpers milling about the cozy Malibu home. It's the kind of peaceful family environment that has typically defined Linda Hamilton on the big screen--before all hell breaks loose. In "Terminator," "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "Dante's Peak" and even the TV series "Beauty and the Beast," Hamilton was just an ordinary girl who finds herself caught in extraordinary circumstances.

The violent sci-fi film "Terminator 2" is drawing considerable criticism over its alleged $100-million cost. On the other hand, celebration and praise continue to be heaped on the very real Gulf War, in which Iraqi men, women, children and babies met violent death from real shells and rockets ($100 million would, incidentally, pay for just two F-15 jet fighters). All of this does not make me feel like facing the future with renewed hope, like Linda Hamilton at the end of "Terminator 2."

Linda Hamilton would like the world to know that she is not an amazon, though she played one to such good effect in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." "My greatest strength became my huge Achilles' heel," she complains. "OK, I've done this really invincible character, and I liked what I did with my body and the feeling of power it gave me. But people think I'm going to go in, chew up the scenery and eat them alive. I'm not. I want to be adorable now." That's why she's starring in "Sex & Mrs.

Who would have thought James Cameron would turn out to be one of the strongest feminist voices in contemporary cinema, and yet he is. It's not merely that his films are populated by strong women -- they've been saving mankind since his first, 1978's 12-minute sci-fi short "Xenogenesis." What makes him a potent feminist force is the way he rides the mood swings and internal debates of the movement's second and third waves, exploring what women want, how they define themselves and how society values their worth, albeit a bit sneakily and usually in some future world.
