A Bit of Fun…Maybe

What do you get when you combine the shows “Lost”, “Jurrasic Park” and “Stargate”? The new or not so new show “Terra Nova” on Fox. I just watched the pilot episode and it was fun but a bit annoying with a predictable plotline. New colonists travel back 85 million years in to the past from a dying world ” Earth in the 22nd century” to populate a clean earth with dinosaurs and lots of jungle. Security forces lead by the same commander who was the bad marine in “Avatar” are covering up some corporate conspiracy and the true reason for the new colony, and of course there is the main family who has to make do in this strange land and survive with 3 kids, and there are the mysterious 6ers who are the rebel colonists, o.k the more I write this it also sounds like a ripoff of “Lost in Space” too. Its really not that bad when you think about all the other unreality shows and competition shows that grace our t.v.’s nightly, luckily I don’t watch t.v and only get to catch shows on Hulu on the laptop. All in all I’ll watch the next few episodes before making a descision on this show, after all ZFox is the channel that brings us “FamilyGuy” and “The Simpsons” right?

  1. I just watched Terra Nova the other day and thought pretty much the same thing. Teenagers break the rules and get in trouble….The commanders son is leaving messages but from when….All that kind of stuff. But, like you, I’m willing to give it a couple of episodes before deciding it. It has potential so we’ll just see where they take it.

    And something I can not for the life of me figure out is Family Guy!! Why do people (read men) love that show? I do not think it is funny at all.. Just my 2 cents….

  2. I don’t watch TV either. We have Direct TV and I might watch The Science Channel, Animal Planet or TLC a couple times a week, but I’ve not watched regular TV shows for many years.

    Good for you being so open minded about a potential show. I tend to make a judgement call within the first 15 minutes. I’d make a tough critic. lol!


  3. I didn’t watch it…..even though Landon Liboron was born and raised about 30 miles from here. His mom is a friend…..how’s that for name dropping 😉
