Terra Nova > Terra Nova Season Finale Review: No Hope Plaza > Comments Page 3
This show has already established that it is heading in a similar direction as Lost did. The stories may be vastly different, but they have the same feeling in the beginning. A lot of mystery looming about. So, my guess is that the show will stay on just so it has a chance to unfold for all the viewers to see. Hopefully the writers of Terra Nova can really make something special over time though because the writing for Lost was terrible and none of the secret things that seemed so important actually meant anything. I'm bitter about Lost only in the sense that I'm hoping Terra Nova won't do the same thing, though, from what I've seen, I doubt it. This series has likable characters and a real scifi plotline, so you know that the story will make as much sense and be as creative as possible. The show is just starting and so it just needs time to grow
i admit this show may not be the best but it is interesting but my comment is more a review of the reviewer. I agree that the Zoe-Taylor scene was good and the dialogue issues....that's where my agreement ends. The comments about klicks is ridiculous! Show me a person that hasn't heard that term before and I'll show you someone that has no business reviewing tv/movies. The girl defusing the bomb has been on before. In fact, we just saw her questioned as a possible spy recently. What show is this guy watching? Complaining about how a bomb gets disarmed? How many times have we seen a scene like that through the years? Countless, yet he chose this show to pick at it when it's one of the biggest cliches in action film (just after the knockout hit to the back of the head that leaves someone unconscious for hours yet they survive without any actual damage lol)
Overall I think this reviewer is lazy. With the obvious mistakes he himself has made in his reviews I can only assume his interest
This is one of my favorite shows. I don't think there's any sub-par acting except in the actress that plays Elizabeth Shannon. In any case, I find each episode fascinating and don't need action every minute (though that's nice too) to be interesting to me. I liked the finale since I always wondered how they would handle it if they didn't have all that technology to fall back on. I hope we get to find out in season two. I'm a little thrown by the 18th century figurehead.
I dont understand why they were sending back the ship piece. Why waste a container with that when it had no value when the minerals were the valuable thing. Someone could just say when they returned that they found an old ship and there must be other ways of traveling. Also, wouldn't you think Shannon and the group would have checked out the container earlier before switching one with a dinosaur.
@Blake reread the review...he actually said the scene in the bar was nice. he even said that Josh's actions were admirable.
Terra nova was a pretty decent show and the season finale was great. The plot was a total surprise. I am really looking forward to a season 2 to see what happens with the whole thing with the piece of a ship and the badlands. I have no idea what the writer of this article was talking about because all the scenes made complete sense. This guy has no idea on how to rate tv shows.
I couldn't read past the first few paragraphs, it again seems like a bad review... I was hoping the, "for example" part would change my mind,but it definitely didn't because you were wrong, people love Lucas first of all (so anytime he's on the screen, people will be interested); and there was nothing wrong with the way the scene played, they were even tying up a small plot-line from the first episode; I woulda smashed Lucas in the face if he was doing that to a girl that I liked, and I would've come to Josh's rescue if I was his father... so what the hell is your problem with that scene???
Ugh, overall, you're approaching the finale in a way that the vast majority of people don't approach it; and I again believe it has to do with the fact that you came into it with a negative attitude. Whatever you want to say, you cannot deny that your review is totally out of sync with everyone who looked at it objectively; the vast majority of people came away enjoying the episode (recommending
I haven't watched each episode, but I really enjoyed the season finale. I liked that it was fast-moving and I enjoyed the relationships between people.
And one more point Tyler. No, it's not good sci-fi. It's terrible science. The show is a huge, steaming pile of bronto crap.
Actually, the tripe about the evil, one-dimensional, mustache-twirling corporation is what is bringing this show down. They did it in a movie (Avatar), we have a bunch of lazy, unwashed scumbags making the streets their own personal bed- and bath-rooms, can we please just have a quality television show that's not preaching at us from the leftists? I guess not with Brannon Braga helming it.
the ship's piece make me desire a new season. just for that, and to find out how the colony will survive with few people and few tech devices and no replacements for that coming.
anyone suspect about the bermudas triangle???
One More point. The whole thing about corporate greed killing our planet and regular people needing to fight back against it? Bravo. I never thought a TV show would have the balls, or remain un-muzzled long enough to make that point as clearly as Terra Nova has.
I just want to say im sick of this show being picked on for the acting and interpersonal dynamics. Sure they are not great. It is a scifi, go watch bridget jones's diary if thats what you care about. From a scifi/action perspective its awesome. The science is actually reasonably accurate for TV. If you suspend your disbelief over the whole time portal bit (which is necessary for the show to exist), the rest falls in line with actual science and paleontology fairly well. Someone on the writing staff did their homework, which i find refreshing. Most scifi you can tell they didn't even bother to google what they are trying to talk about. Even if i find myself not caring about the Shannons, i care about the colony and really want to see what ultimately happens. Maybe these critics should stick to talking about the Good Wife,and leave scifi alone since they have no idea what makes a good science fiction tv show. PS all that stuff they complain about? ALMOST ALWAYS gets better in
I think this show has done what V should have done. Move fast! It didn't drag on and on, and the finale was just a great conclusion. I loved V but it did take too long for anything to happen, with Terra Nova there is the element of the unexpected, and the story line is original. I even remember thinking to myself 'I hope they bring some dinosaur back in 2149' and they did it, it feels like they cared about the viewer and tried to do what a TV show should do every single second, entertain. The actors are credible, the characters are interesting and all likeable.
It took till the end of the year for the reviewer and I to agree on a show that is a total waste of an hour. Special effects can only take a show so far but same ones over and over get old. And it is not acting when people just quote lines with no expression. I hope they all find better work next year and will look for the guy that plays Josh at hamburger stand taking orders.
I love reading these reviews because it really shows how stupid the reviewer really is. Not every show is perfect. In case you did not grasp this concept I will be more than happy to clarify for you. Taylor was as mentioned before many times in the military, and so were his troops. A "Klick" is a military term used by military personnel, your going to hear it. It seems as though you really didn't even watch the show, "that woman" didn't cut every single wire, and when defusing a bomb you don't just go from first to last. The bomb must be defused in a specific order. Shame people just can't enjoy a show, glad I never listen to critics about anything.
I will agree with one of the reviewer's points....
Ashley Zukerman - plays Lucas Taylor. Wow, this guy is a fantastic actor. So fantastic that I actually hate Lucas. Hate him. Zukerman's performance in the finale was Emmy-worthy, really!
Bring on season 2, Fox!
What a moronic review. You're upset they say "klicks"? It's slang, an abbreviation for kilometers, you dork. It's quite commonly said, in metric countries, such as Canada, Australia, etc.
Wow, do you ever cut up this show based on ridiculous little details. Ugly flags? Ugly flags with the Phoenix logo upset you? Dude, I mean dud, you've got problems.
But, to answer your last question...yes, I want Fox to renew for a second season. I don't however, care to read anymore of your drivel.
I hope this show comes back for a second season. I like shows that makes me to anticipate the next episode and this show certainly did. Terra Nova had a rocky start but if you watched every episode from the beginning you'll see that the show got better as the came to an end.
I quite enjoyed this show i think it took a daring twist and worked out pretty well. I hope to see another season and see where they take the story and how they resolve the conflict between taylor and lucus
I really really hope this show won`t get canceled. Its just enjoyable. The stories aren`t mindblowingly great, sure, such as the cgi and dialogue. BUT, I just like the charakters and actors.
The guy that writes the reviews here just doesnt have a clue about acting. There`s not one bad actor in the main cast. To the contrary, many of them are relly great. So for the sake of them, and me having a show thats just fun to watch ( not like this wannabe - intelligent "The walking dead" crap, where I fell asleep during the middle of the second season and therefore gave up watching it ), please keep this show alive.
Lucas and Skye were the best part of this episode, "i'd beat it out of you if i didn't think you'd like it" they had killer creepy chemistry
terra nova has a good balance. the actors and characters all make the show great. all in all watch a show because YOU enjoy it. I never posted or commented on a review for any show. I believe in watching a show because of my views not because critics say its good or bad. this show is wonderful, I hope to see many more seasons. don't let this turn out to be a single season like firefly was( another great show) :)
@Gaby--I am also mad Kara is dead. It made everything josh did pointless and then I don't really feel like they really acknowledged her death very well. Just another flaw to add to the pile.
Hey y'all. No need to personally attack the reviewer. It's his job to review the show...which includes giving his opinion about the show. Just because you may not agree with that opinion doesnt make him bad at his job or mean he needs to be fired. The fact that he has all of you so riled up actually proves he's pretty good at his job. Sites like this want to start a dialogue among its readers which is exactly what Dan has done. So leave your thoughts about the show,and what the reviewer thinks, but don't be rude and personally attack him for his opinions.
Because mostly he's right...this isn't a very good show. It totally did not live up to my expectations. I understand that some people enjoy it and see it has a family friendly show but family friendly does not need to be boring.
