Where are the dinosaurs? That is what drew me to this show but they only come out at night? Never knew dinosaurs were nocturnal creatures!
Joey and Gail - I don't mind suspending reality, but it still needs to be done intelligently. I was a HUGE fan of Lost, and boy did THAT suspend reality! BUT - it did it with a premise of the supernatural, which tends to lend more credence to the whole thing (which I can't really explain, but it works), whereas Terra Nova is supposedly based on science. In my opinion, that science needs to be explained! By simply dumbing-down complex ideas like this, we're not really doing our chilren a favor. I was reading Philip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov as a child, and that was completely "what if" story-telling, but had the intelligence and the science to back it up. I'm one of those who still demands the same in my entertainment today. Jurassic Park (though named incorrectly) is a story, with dinosaurs, that still explains the science to back it up... there are ways to do it and still be entertaining!
And Carissa - thanks! :)
The cgi in this show is just awful tbh.
Even sci-fi's tv movies have better cgi than this.
Give the show a break. Its written to captivate a younger audience and allow people a chance to carry out that childhood fantasy that you had in elementary school about living with dinosaurs. So there are holes in the script, so what. Theres no sex, nothing obscenely offensive, and sure beats ANY reality show. I watch this with the same attitude that I watch the Simpsons with. My 11 year old and 13 your old son love this show, and it gives me a chance to watch TV that isn't revolved around immorality. If this show doesn't get picked up for another season, be prepared to have FOX fill this time slot with yet another garbage singing show revolving around untalented brats whining about wanting to be famous... (X factor, American idol)
Mrs.C.K. Dexter Haven, The Watcher and Symph2001 - you give me faith in humanity (as does Dan). Thank you. Our world will survive!
Call me crazy, but I like the "let's pretend", which is what the show is about.
I think that this reminds me of some of the better after school specials in the acting and dialog areas.
I just want to like it so much and keep getting disappointed...... I may have one more episode in me before the dvr deletion...
I think I'm officially over this show. There are simply too many things that have never been explained, and it's driving me nuts! For example, what the hell are they doing there? Trying to save the planet - by going back in time and destroying it earlier?? Nobody's even TRIED to explain how they plan to overcome the paradoxes involved... by going back in time, the existing time-line is no longer the same, so they wouldn't have gone back in time, etc, etc, etc. And they can supposedly TALK to the future? Again, the whole premise is just ridiculous. What about this project is making the human race any better, or helping the planet in any way??
Another point - if this whole thing is so controlled by the 2149 government, then HOW are all these dissidents getting through? You'd think each and every person was completely vetted out and very carefully selected (other than the hero and his family which snuck through - the one part that actually kind of gels), which would make it nea
I liked this episode, I thought it was a good one. I found myself upset at Josh this episode, for what he did. But in the end he told his parents, which was a good thing. The whole "vampire" thing with Zoe, was funny, I enjoyed that. Didn't like that Hotron guy, after a while I had my doubts. That spider scared me, mostly because I hate them and that they scare me. I'm glad that Jim came and saved Maddie before that guy could release the spider on her. I didn't even think that asperagus was code for something, until they mentioned it. I've enjoyed Terra Nova so far, I don't care what anyone else says: Terra Nova is a good show.
Wow, some people really don't pay attention to the show do they?
1) Maddy, the girl, did tell her mom about her suspicions about her mentor not being who he says he is. She told her when she noticed that his signature was different from the one on her letter she kept. Her mom was too busy to pay any attention though, and her father was mostly outside the gates for most of the show, and when he did come back he was busy with the break-in investigation. Maddy knew if she wanted to prove it, she needed actual proof. Then she used a code word her and her dad know about when she's in trouble, and told her sister to go tell him when she helped her sister get away from the guy.
2) As for the desk scene, you do know that it is actually possible to hide behind those without being seen, right? The fake mentor looked tall enough where he may not have seen her under there when he walked in and the desk itself didn't look too far away.
3) Do you have kids? Have you ever been around kids?
Ugh. When this show first came out I thought it was okay, mostly because my husband likes it. Two episodes ago I moved from okay to tolerate. Now, I've officially moved from tolerate to dislike. It's like some lame kids show simply marketed to adults (perhaps why the hubs likes it LOL) and I cannot watch this anymore. ITA about the see-through table scene. Really? Wow. And the so-keen detective skills. Wow he got a confession by poking a stick at the perp. Must be a magical stick. Plus the fact the "invisible teen" tells only her little sister, not her stick-poking detective father, doctor mother, or soldier boytoy, that her new boss is most likely an imposter was ridiculous at best. Yes, because an annoying 8 year old (or however old this kid is, she's bugged me since episode 1) knows how to help. Oh of course, he's a vampire. Maybe that's why we need the sticks, to steak his heart into the earth to prevent his undead self from walking around. Glad to know vampires were still relevant
