This one aired during the Super Bowl, and I admit I’m a little curious. One of two big-budget series airing this year (the other being the alien invasion-themed “Falling Skies”), “Terra Nova” is about family who ends up with a group of scientists and soldier types that travel a bunch of million years into the past to make a new life among the dinosaurs. Parts of it are eerily similar to the sometimes-great BBC show “Primeval,” but with better creature effects. Anyway, watch:
I’m happy to see Stephen Lang getting steady work, and the dinosaurs, what little we see of them, anyway, do look cool. Sort of a hard sci-fi version of “Land Of The Lost.” It’s produced by Steven Spielberg, and it’s either going to be great, or a staggeringly expensive flop.
