Terra Nova discussion thread

Postby Wing Saber » Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:26 pm

Well, the series premeire of Terra Nova just aired, and I must say, I am impressed. I now have a replacement for Falling Skies, as falling skies only airs during the summer.
For those of you who don't know, Terra Nova is a new sci-fi series in which the future environment is destroyed, making earth near uninhabitable. A group of people travel back to prehistoric times to a settlement called Terra Nova

Think I saw a commercial for this. Looked interesting. Though, I don't get to watch TV much these days (what with juggling school, work, homework, and the rest of my schedule around), so I can't say if I'll get to see this or not.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I watched and the only real disappointer was that the equations were not written by aliens :<

I didn't expect aliens, nor did I want that. Aliens and dinosaurs just don't belong in the same show.
I expected there to be some ancient human life, or some other civilization.

I guess you never saw Dino-Riders, then? ;)

To this day, it still baffles me as to how that toyline did not catch on. To quote the Nostalgia Critic,
"These were space men who take over the minds of dinosaurs and use them as weapons in their intergalactic war. (*muffled/confused stuttering*) THAT'S THE COOLEST IDEA EVER! They had a TV show too, but that never went anywhere. Why!? I mean, seriously, it's like the best combination of everything boys like! Just throw in cowboys, ninjas, pirates, and the annoying little girls for making us feel confusing emotions and it'd be perfect! Oh well, all I gotta say is, as long as Jeff Goblum has nothing to do with them, these dinosaurs are awesome! " :P

Saw the first episode last night and I must say I enjoyed it. So Terra Nova isn't in the past, it's in the past of parallel dimension? That's what it sounded like when they talked about the probe. I'll deffinatley be watching this series

I've been watching this show, I like it.

It's also produced by Steven Spielberg (Falling Skies).

The last episode seemed to move a little slow, it was still cool though.

It reminds me a bit of Lost (not as awesome, btw - then again few things are :P ) which is what's really grabbing me. I hope they make an ARG for it!
