    Terra Nova Talkback *SPOILERS*

    Expect *Spoilers* in this thread after an episode has aired.

    Steven Spielberg's show is set to debut in May and start officially in the Fall on Fox. It seems like some sort of Avatar meets Jurassic Park meets Land of the Lost type show. I'll probably check it out.

    Two Words:

    Dino Riders

    3 more words:

    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs


    they are using one of the oldest plots in TV/Movie history humans surrounded by Dinosaurs and having to survive. I may also throw in, to a lesser extent, The Flintstones and DinoSaucers. I am going to check this out but I would rather have most of these shows on DVD that already came before. If they have a good story I will continue to watch but they better have more that T-Rexs or evil humans as villlians.

    There was a show like....18 years ago called "Earth 2" I think. Basically people had to leave earth and recolonize on another planet. Is this show sort of like that? That is the vibe I got from it.

    Unfortunately, sci-fi/fantasy shows don't last on TV long unless they're a hit right out of the gate. Luckily FOX will probably give a show with Spielberg's name on it more of a chance than they have with those that had Whedon's name on it. I like the premise, I like the lead(he's a great actor who keeps getting cast in shows that can't make it past 2 entire seasons), and I like the guy who was the villain in Avatar. I'm in.

    It looks neat, but I'm not a fan of Brannon Braga.

    Sometimes not even then. It has to sustain the right numbers, not just premiere big, and that's proving to be a challenge. I wish it was the other way around and they nurtured all shows they put out. At this point I'm looking at most of these shows an interesting single season, with no hope for anything to follow.

    Since I'm not a Star Trek fan, I don't really have an opinion of him. I will say that I will always have affection for his show "Threshold" since the lead had a French Bulldog in the pilot episode. A few months later, after the unfortunate death of my Akita "Koko", I ended up getting my very own Frenchie named "Odie" based in a large part on how cute I thought her dog was.

    I guess the pilot will no longer air in May like originally planned, but will debut in the Fall with the rest of the series. Word is that Fox is leaning towards showing it on Mondays or Thursdays with Mondays being the most likely.

    deadline.com:

    I hear the most anticipated new Fox series, prehistoric drama Terra Nova, which had been rumored to launch either on Monday or Thursday, looks Monday-bound. Conventional wisdom has it that Fox should use a reliable performer like House to launch its highest-profile new series, and that has been the scenario most speculated about. But, Terra Nova has tested great as a four-quadrant show with a very broad appeal, so I won't be surprised if Fox decides to make a switch and put Terra Nova at 8 PM to capture the family audience. Terra Nova doesn't really need a lead-in - after all it's a Steven Spielberg-produced show with dinosaurs - so it could be a self-starter like Glee proved to be this season. And House is probably better suited for 9 PM.

    i'll be surprised if this series premieres on time with all the production problems it has been having.....


    Now here is the problem I have with the show's premise. So in the future the world is becoming uninhabitable. So they go into the past to live there. Won't this screw everything up and create a paradox?

    Also, if they have to go into the past why would they go back to the time of the dinosaurs? Best case scenario is everything goes well and society thrives once again only to be obliterated by the same asteroid that killed the dinosaurs in the first place.

    Could be fun!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
