Terra Nova

EPISODE REVIEW: Terra Nova: “Genesis, Parts 1 and 2” (Episodes 1 and 2)

The last current show I reviewed was “Outcasts,” an ultimately fairly dismal and pointless British series that seemed to eschew logic, plausibility, and occasionally coherence in an effort to be a sort of unofficial fifth season of Battlestar Galactica. (“Ok, so we kill Apollo, and focus on new characters, but they’re still on earth, living like hillbillies for no good reason…”) I’m confessing this up front because the previews for “Terra Nova” remind me *A LOT* of “Outcasts,” only with a budget.

THINGS WE'RE DEFINITELY (INEXPLICABLY) INTERESTED IN: "The Three Musketeers" and to a lesser extent, "Terra Nova"

Ok, so here's the deal: Firstly, I'm gonna' be reviewing the "Terra Nova" series starting with the premier on Monday. I'm not expecting too much of it, of course - the premise seems uncommonly stupid - but as the most expensive SF show since "Kings," it should at least be pretty. OTOH, it's Spielberg, who's shown a profound lack of ability where Television is concerned. Odd, given how good he is with Movies. Anyway: That one's mine.

There's a lot more stuff under the jump, including video clips and one of my rants. Well, not quite a rant. Rant-ish, so click through and check it out.
