Terra Nova looks to be one of the most interesting new titles slated for fall premier. In order To save mankind, colonists are transported millions of years into the past. Some people are already saying this could be the new “LOST”.  As long as the visual effects are good and the characters are compelling, Terra Nova could be HUGE.

Here’s a summary from Wikipedia because this honestly took me completely by surprise and I don’t have much more to tell you about it.

The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction. In an effort to save the human race, scientists develop a portal allowing travel 85 million years back in time to prehistoric Earth. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy and Zoe) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they are unaware that the colony is in the middle of a group of carnivorous dinosaurs.

As much as I criticize FOX for pulling the plug on some of my favorite shows I really have to give them credit for taking chances on some really risky concepts. Think about some of the sci-fi series which FOX took a chance on. Some worked out while others … not so much.

  • The X-files
  • Fringe
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
  • Firefly
  • DollHouse
  • Earth 2
  • Space: Above and beyond

As far as Terra Nova goes, if it has  temporal doorways and dinosaurs,   I’m already looking forward to it.
