The Completion List : Terra Nova

I finished the Fox series, Terra Nova aka That Dinosaur Show.

I had heard negative reviews but it was better than expected. The vision of the future wasn’t completely original but we’ve got a limited number of types of futures.

It seems that in the future, scientists discovered a way to escape the dying, polluted  world with its oppressive government, all the way back to the days of the dinosaurs to colonize.

The dinosaurs weren’t bad but could have been used more. Sure, it was a TV budget on Fox but a few shows lost the dinosaur element altogether. Yeah, the writers wanted suspense and drama but in a Dino show, don’t skimp on the dinos.

The series ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger but it was complete enough not to be frustrating. I started watching Invasion, another SF show that was canceled after one season. From what I understand,  it ends similarly to Terra Nova, but at least ABC gave that show a little more time to develop.

  1. This is why I’m so wary of trying new shows when they come out.

  2. It wasn’t like they left you completely hanging like the fake Galaxy Quest show but still a let down.
