I'm watching the Season Opener right now On Demand. Has anybody else seen it yet? What do you think of it? I'm pretty impressed so far. It looks like it should be a good show. It's very unique. And there's also dinosaurs.
it's spielberg so it's going to be garbage and unwatchable
I haven't seen it yet, but it looks like "Lost" meets "Jurassic Park" to me.
But it does look interesting, so I might catch up to it someday.
PsychoZoid/Andrew Berry: The most uninteresting man in the world
Basically, it's Jurassic Park. The effects are decent, especially for television, but it was horribly predictable and cheesy just in the pilot, so I'm ignoring it.

Honestly, it wasn't THAT predictable. What are those geometric patterns on the rocks? What is the camp leader hiding? Who are the Sixers and what do they want?
I watched it. Good to see Colonel Quaritch from Avatar is doing some work that's not typecasting him...oh wait...
-I hate the angsty teen kid
-All signs are painfully pointing in the direction that "Sixers" are the good guys, and Terra Nova is going to be painted into looking like the oppressors...I guess we'll find out.
And one thing that bothers me...their fucking bullets seem USELESS against these bloodthirsty dinosaurs. Their sonic turrets at the front gates repel them, sure, but you would think they'd start looking into more efficient means of combatting the more deadly carnivores than piddly machine guns that don't do shit.
"I'm going to look for my son, you stay with this little black girl who was somehow not eaten alive...for some reason...HERE. Take my pistol...because a lot of good that'll do ye, right? lol"

I REALLY hope it doesn't turn out like that when I get around to watching it. It looks pretty bangin'.

On an additional note, there were some moments of good character development though...like the relationship between the father and his tiny third child he thought had forgotten him.
But MAN I hope this show isn't going to be predictably switching the Sixers from antagonist to protagonist.
Also, can anyone confirm if those Slashers actually ate one of the kids? That black girl that lost her shit and blindly ran into the jungles just to get ambushed? It was bullshit that she wasn't killed...did anybody else that wasn't a six get eaten?
i actually broke down and watched this because i was bored
besides the predictable shit:
fascist esque invasion at the first (we get it spielberg, you hate nazis)
world ruined due to not being ecofriendly (we get it spielberg, you love nature and carbon credits)
multiracial couples, actually it seems all couples in this show are interracial (we get it spielberg, multiculturalism)
a few good things are actually present:
the special effects
sound (5.1 woo) and cinematography are interesting (what do you expect for 4 million an episode though)
the location, guns, vehicles, and art direction are interesting (i actually really like the architecture on terra nova, although the "present day" earth looks an awful lot like blade runner with it's flame spewing factories)
jason o mara
dialogue, story, and characters are predictably childish and boring, but it's interesting enough just to watch for the high production values
i'll probably watch the next episode and see where it goes
I've been watching every episode (well only 3 so far) and so far I like it.
We're meat and that's it. So lets fuck it, fuck it, fuck it.
3rd episode was absolutely awful
i hope more people die in the next ep
I watched that second episode and groaned through most of it.
We're going to watch a fuckload of talking-heads exposition with minimal, obvious special effects to break up the boring monotony.
"What could have caused all of these mutilating wounds and it came from the trees!? SHUT UP PTERODACTYLES, I'M TRYING TO SCORE WITH MY WIFE!"
...those idiots...why did it never occur to them to fucking kill and eat those pterodactyles? They are FRAGILE, BIRD-LIKE CREATURES, and now you just said there's a fuckload coming? AWESOME. Grab a baseball bat, shoot into the air, or use those sonic cannons or whatever, and HEY, LOOK, A FUCK-TON OF PROTEIN. Do this long enough, and maybe the pterodactyles will stop trying to fuck with Terra Nova. Lay out their bones as a warning to others.
Or hell, did they know where the Six camp was? Why not drive over there and catapult the Hormone tank into their camp, driving away laughing?
Ohhh but the writers had to incorporate some soap drama bullshit with the doctor who was the protagonist's wife's ex. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to like this our main hero.
-Illegally has third child. Solves problem by punching authority. Gets arrested.
-Family is going into a portal, billions of years into the past while he's in prison. Breaks out of jail, punches the authority and barely makes it into Terra Nova.
-Suspicious guy about to shoot the bad guy from Avatar. Punches would-be assassin and barely gains trust.
-Learns about his wife having an ex. Disproportionately gets very jealous and almost jeapordizes his marriage and the solution to a pterodactyle swarm continge-FUCK THIS GUY.
Oh well. At least he got to bang his wife after the pterodactyle problem was all over...while all of his kids are asleep in the living room, doing the dirty dance in a room with a window you can clearly see through on a door that doesn't luck surrounded by thin walls that I don't think has any real connection to the ceiling. They'll never notice a thiiiing.
Then I saw the preview for the third episode. It looked stupid as hell, so I stopped recording it.

JP3 was good. Shut up.
Looks to me like one of those movies that seem exciting because a bunch of exciting things are happening but fail to really hold my interest.
