Great New Sci-fi
I checked out that new science fiction show on Fox, Terra Nova. I'm hooked. So far, it's the top of my list of this year's new shows. The show centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when the planet is dying who are transported back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth where they join Terra Nova, a colony of humans with a second chance to build a civilization.
I love the concept and it's actually keeping my interest. I sat down to watch and work on some models at the same time and I found myself putting my work aside to focus on the show. I guess you could say the 21st century's answer to the old Land of the Lost franchise, but a lot less cheesy. Great characters, decent special effects and with Spielberg behind the scenes and Brannon Braga, involved - how can you go wrong?!
