Premieres tonight. But if the trend holds, it only means I won't get to see it till next Monday because of FOX/Hulu lame delay against running new shows the following day. :::sigh:::

I'm excited, but cautious. I'll be there anxiously awaiting for Terra Nova to entertain me.

Tonight's show conflicts with a lot of other shows I've got marked to watch on Monday nights. Oh well, let's see what this brings.

Genesis (Pilot)/Genesis (Part 2)

Yea, Terra Nova delivers the goods. As a self declared sci-fi nerd, I was very happy with the premiere of Terra Nova. It carries an excellent pace highlighted with some very cool action. With a plethora of characters, the possibilities of storytelling will be enormous. I appreciated the quick resolution to complicated storylines. Sure a leap of faith is very much needed, but they also didnít dwell on the sticky issues which would bog down the pace. For one example... How Terra Nova Trumps the Butterfly Effect. The CGI was very decent and the camera angles only enhanced the viewing experience.

There were obvious influences from Jurassic Park and in particular Blade Runner for the opening segment. Iíll regard them as tributes. The two hour feature just flew by. Within minutes of the opening credits, the introductions start and the action kicks in.

Iíll be paying attention to this show this fall.

Terra Nova  Episode 3 Ė Instinct

Meh...

Last nights episode was very reminiscent of  other things weíve seen beforeÖ The Birds and Pitch Black. So I was underwhelmed with the show. They are throwing in some drama with old loves which added some drama but nothing deep. And the ol solving a major problem AND generating a solution in about 3 minutes at the end felt rushed and seemed just plain silly.

Added Episode 1: Genesis

I hate being late to a show through no fault of my own. This 8 day delay is annoying me. I refuse to read any of your reviews Mac till I watch the first episode. If they are in fact reviews. Hell, you may be thrashing this show left and right everyday. I won't know till I'm done watching the show.

Genesis



Pretty impressive debut in my eyes. The Special FX were pretty good, actually, great given that it's for TV. The set up is good, but not perfect. Some things are already annoying me, namely Josh. I don't know if it's the character or the actor that plays him. The other kids are as annoying, but they certainly aren't endearing that's for sure. There was one moment where the Slasher has Hunter's leg in it's mouth and seems to just be holding the leg. Um, I don't have any personal experience with Dinosaurs, but I'm pretty sure that if there is a leg in it's mouth, it's gonna snap it in half and tear it off, not just hold it in place.

I easily picked up on the Obama currency. Given the dire situation of what Earth is like in the 22nd Century on the show, and given our current situtation now in real life, it's clear that Obama is the reason why Earth is in the toilet and the currency is a "job well done" nod to the man.

The end game for the series was obvious to me even before I even saw one frame of the first episode: to get back home to a rejuvenated and healthy Earth. And with the ending of Genesis, it's hinted at regarding Commander Nathaniel Taylor and his ulterior motive to starting Terra Nova. My guess is that he has, or at least knows the secret to reviving Earth and is keeping it to himself so that he can continue to live as a "King" over his Utopian society.

2nd half?

The Genesis episode was the 2 hour pilot, 90 minutes minus the commercials. The second episode is not up till next Tuesday. :::sigh:::

That's cool. Some places have them split it up into Pilot and 2nd half I guess because of the hour format. I thought they might be skanky enough to provide an hour at a time.

What Remains

I'm not so sure about this show. It seems light in any kind of story line. They did it again and solved a major medical problem in a couple of minutes. And the problem. Some Amnesia virus. It kind of reminds me of Stargate, but seriously missing some reasons to want to come back and watch this on a regular basis. Very little character development.
