Description

From executive producers Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, René Echevarria and Brannon Braga comes an epic family adventure 85 million years in the making. The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet forbidding land. Jim Shannon (Jason O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family through this new world of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. Jim’s wife, Elisabeth (Shelley Conn), is a trauma surgeon and the newest addition to Terra Nova’s medical team. Josh (Landon Liboiron) is their 17-year-old son who is torn to leave life as he knows it behind; upon arriving at the settlement, he finds himself instantly drawn to the beautiful and rule-breaking Skye (Allison Miller). Maddy (Naomi Scott), Josh’s endearingly awkward 15-year-old sister, hopes Terra Nova will give her a new chance to reinvent herself. Although Elisabeth’s medical training secured the family a spot on the pilgrimage, a secret involving their five-year-old daughter, Zoe (Alana Mansour), soon endangers their place in this utopia. Upon the Shannon’s arrival, they are introduced to Commander Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang), the charismatic and heroic first pioneer and leader of the settlement. Taylor warns the travelers that while Terra Nova is a place of new opportunities and fresh beginnings, all is not as idyllic as it initially appears.

    When I first saw the teaser trailer for this show, I knew it was going to be good. I am pleased to see that Stephan Lang from (Avatar 2009) is going to reprise his role as the head of the military for this series. I know that this will be a great season of drama and suspense with dinosaurs added into the mix. For anyone who is a fan of Jurassic Park or Avatar 2009 this is the season for you Time Machine set, destination Terra Nova
  • So far, so good!

    First the good: it looks pretty. Art, graphical, and set design are superb for a television show and the dinosaurs are almost life like. The bad: many characters are like cardboard and one dimensional. The only two I actually liked and wished the story revolved around were Skye (Allison Miller) and Commander Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang) they were the ONLY characters that showed a certain amount of complexity and interest. The ugly: the science and story itself. So let me get this straight: scientists SEND A PROBE through their MANMADE TIME MACHINE to SOMEWHERE in the past (a few years, 85 million like in the show, or even before earth was formed). The PROBE DID NOT SEND A SIGNAL BACK, so the scientists concluded that an ALTERNATE TIME stream was created. WHAT PROOF DID THEY HAVE?? And in the 137 years to the show's point in time, no scientists, no government went to the trouble of establishing space colonies or a colony on the moon to spread out the population? Not to mention if they are so strict at maintaining the population, they wouldn't invest in sterilization laws?? Conclusion: as far as science fiction shows go, this delivers a lot of fiction and not enough science. It has its entertaining moments, but not enough to bring it up to par with shows like Star Trek: TNG, Firefly, or Doctor Who.

    A crooked cop, a dishonest doctor, and a leader that has managed to find a place of complete corruption and hiding secrets from everyone completely ruining human kind's chance of a new future! The female characters were left mostly undeveloped while the show focused on "men in charge" that certainly didn't seem to care about anyone or believe anyone deserved an explanation for any of their actions. The new dawn of human kind has already fallen into the corruption of not the antagonists, but the main characters of the show! This is indeed a darker twist on themes we've seen before this time heralding misconduct or the abuse of the people by those in power or authority. I can see similarities to LOST plot and drama devices, but I also believe this deviates completely by creating main characters that do seem too far beyond remdemption to care about. It has the tropical settings and guys with guns who just don't care who they hurt. An instant civil war taking place in the new hope for mankind scenario but no one is saying what it's about? That is just a cheap badly done suspense device people by the time someone is there they are stuck so obviously they would be more upfront about what the conflict was about to see who they could count on. The conflict between father and son showing them both as dismissive of each other after years of separation when in a setting so far removed from all of those problems just screams that the family is there to destroy the new world's hope for decent human beings. I waited for weeks and wanted to see this. The trailers and the sneak peeks didn't even hint at being based on main characters you would learn to hate in the first episode. It gave off more the vibe of a police state propaganda show than anything made for actual entertainment. It was easy to be reminded that you were watching the same conceptual "daisy killers" from Avatar with the way the characters were laid out. Other than the enemy I also noted it seemed to just be guys running around with guns as if carrying around guns was more important than anything else even when you were only pointing them at each other (weren't they supposed to pointed at the dinos)? Humans create a new hope in a potentially hostile environment, humans forget that survival requires cooperation rather than war and secrets, Dinosaurs easily begin feeding on distracted humans in a compound with walls too short to block the tallest of them and too widely spaced apart so a human being can slip through them. What is the purpose of these walls other than stopping human vehicles and mid sized dinosaurs that are only mildly interested? Oh wait, they just look good right? Apparently the writers believe in a world where human beings are even more intent to be a meal for a pre-historic animal than in any of the Jurassic Park movies or books. I thought someone else addressed this quite well by questioning a story that had people running off into the wilderness in a four wheel drive without weapons when they know there are hostile predators. Even the commander didn't seem too surprised or upset by the incident re-enforcing the question of why they would be out there without weapons where no one could find them waiting to be rescued by the horribly developed hero characters. If you have to make the rest of the people in the show complete morons just to give the main characters we don't like something to do...there is something really wrong with the writing!
  • Terrible acting and writing, so-so CGI

    As much as I wanted to to even somewhat like this show, because I love dinosaurs and Sci-Fi, I just can't. The pilot completely turned me off with it's corny acting, laughable lines (literally, I laughed on occasion when they weren't trying to be funny), and wimpy CGI dinos. Honestly, the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, which was made almost twenty years ago, look much better than these ones. Granted, I know that it is a TV show and doesn't have a movie budget, but I still think that they could have done better. There is one scene when some "Slashers" ( what the heck kinda dino is that? Why do they always feel that they need to invent dinosaurs that never existed? Stupid) attack a car with kids in it at night, and all that we see during the choppy action are blatantly fake dino masks that are barely visible in the blackness. That scene was annoying. Anyway, it's good that somebody is trying to make an interesting sci-fi show in this world of singing contests, but I won't be tuning in anymore. Not worth my time. It'll be canceled soon anyway.

    This series is filled with excitement, great acting, great special effects. All characters are amazing and makes this series incredible. Didn't want to miss an episode. Wish they would make a Season 2 series.
  • It deserved a Season 2 at least.

    I am always excited to watch new TV show premieres especially if they talk about or look at how human life could be in the near future. Terra Nova is one of these TV shows and it was amazingly awesome for a single season, but then got cancelled probably due to low viewership ratings. This TV show in my opinion could have been picked up by another TV network like SyFy or CW for a second season at least. What do you think?
  • Is there a season 2.

    Or is this based on a ancient hidden edition reality? This is a great show and deserve another season.

    Short-sighted, cheap network execs canceled this show because it was too expensive. So make it cheaper and bring it back.
