Terra Nova : SEASON 1 FINALE Occupation/Resistance aired tonight! 2hours special!


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1641349/


Thought I'd start a thread about this show There's often threads about show and I think this one deserve one.

I actually quite like TN, it was a first episod so clearly they needed to set things out a bit. It looks like a mix of Jurassic Park/Avatar/Lost lol. (Maybe it looks like Avatar because of the sergeant and the overall camp look lol) Could be too much but so far I like it, I think it's stupid to try to compare it to another series or movie tho, that's when you get high expectation and get disapointed. Obviously they can't make it too similar or else people will complain they copied it. I'm curious to see what's going to be the story line, obviously there's something going on with the 6ers (whatever they are called) and the guy's son disparition with the signs. Something fishy about the "real" purpose of TN lol. Bottom line I think that show will be a grower a bit like Lost, I remember when I first started watching Lost and it first couple of episods, I liked it but it wasn't as intriguing and later on on the serie, and I would never have guessed, even after the 1st season that it would last that long and end up like that. I think something similar might happen with TerraNova,

Nathaniel Taylor, the charismatic and heroic first pioneer and leader of the settlement. Taylor warns the travelers that while Terra Nova is a place of new opportunities and fresh beginnings, all is not as idyllic as it initially appears. Along with blue skies, towering waterfalls and lush vegetation, the surrounding terrain is teeming with danger - and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety.

Re: Terra Nova : Special 2 hours Series Premiers (Genesis) was on Monday! Next Hit?

I just finished watching it. I liked it, but I'm not sure it has the potential to have the fan-base or success of LOST.

It will be interesting to see how it develops.

Like I said in that other thread, just saw the pilot of Terra Nova and yes I agree it's a mix of Avatar/Lost/Jurrasic Park I love Avatar and Lost so I'm definitely gonna give this show a try.

Re: Terra Nova : Special 2 hours Series Premiers (Genesis) was on Monday! Next Hit?

By Scott Collins, Los Angeles Times
September 28, 2011
The dinosaurs may have roamed in prime time, but Ashton Kutcher's roar was louder.

Fox's dino-epic "Terra Nova" got off to a decent if unspectacular start Monday night, proving no match for CBS' "Two and a Half Men," which remained strong in Week 2 with new costar Kutcher.

The heavily publicized two-hour premiere of "Terra Nova," the long-anticipated time-travel drama from executive producer Steven Spielberg and already one of the most expensive series in TV history, averaged 9.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen.

In the Monday time slot, that was much better than last year's critically acclaimed bomb "Lone Star" (4 million) but a bit down from the premiere of last season's "House."

In the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic, Fox averaged a solid if not thrilling 3.1 rating/8 share, good for third place overall on the night. That number had to be somewhat disappointing to Fox executives, given that the "Terra Nova" pilot was estimated to cost at least $15 million, one of the costliest in TV history.

By comparison, last week's "Hell's Kitchen" finale averaged a 2.6 rating — and reality shows are much cheaper to produce than scripted dramas such as "Terra Nova."

But Fox executives adopted a philosophical tone toward the results.

"It's a science-fiction show; that always narrows the audience a little bit," Preston Beckman, the network's scheduling guru, said of "Terra Nova. "It's really about where it is Week 2 and 3. What you hope is that people who liked it tell their friends.... We continue to hope families will catch onto it."

If "Terra Nova" underperformed relative to its hype, "Two and a Half Men" continued to surprise.

The sitcom delivered 20.5 million viewers — nowhere near last week's record-breaking 28.7 million premiere, but still far and away the evening's most-watched program. Ratings for ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," meanwhile, were unexpectedly soft, with 16.2 million tuning in. NBC continued to suffer with its lineup of "The Sing-Off" and "The Playboy Club," the latter of which failed to draw even 4 million viewers.

Analysts expect "Men" to settle around the 12.7 million viewer mark it averaged last season, the final, shortened one for the since-fired Charlie Sheen. But at the rate things are going, it may take a while to get there, much to the dismay of Fox and other rivals.

Wiki:
The series is based on an idea by British writer Kelly Marcel. Alex Graves signed on to direct the pilot. Brannon Braga serves as showrunner. Australia was chosen after producer Steven Spielberg vetoed Hawaii because he wanted a different filming location from his 1993 film Jurassic Park. The two-hour pilot was filmed over 26 days in late November to December 2010. It was shot in south-east Queensland, Australia, with locations in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Gold Coast Hinterland. The shoot was plagued by torrential rain and additional material had to be shot in 2011, with a total estimated cost between $10 to $20 million to be amortized over the season. More than 250 sets were constructed. An episode takes eight to nine days to shoot, like most television dramas, but six weeks in post-production, twice the television average. The average episode budget is about $4 million. Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly stated, "This thing is going to be huge. It's going to take an enormous production commitment."
In an unusual decision, Fox skipped ordering just a pilot, and instead immediately ordered thirteen episodes. This was partly due to financial reasons, as the large Australian sets are expensive to dismantle and rebuild. Despite this decision, the producers denied the production was over-budget, with Peter Rice explaining instead the show is "a very expensive... very ambitious television show". Kevin Reilly continued, "We're not in completely uncharted territory here. The start-up cost for the series is definitely on the high end. But it's not some bank-breaking series". With only 10% of Cretaceous-era dinosaurs recorded in the fossil record, the producers decided to supplement the series with ones which might have existed; paleontologist Jack Horner was brought in to help create realistic creatures for the period and different from those of the Jurassic Park film franchise.
In June 2010, the first cast member was announced – Jason O'Mara as Jim Shannon. In late August, Allison Miller joined the cast. In September, Deadline Hollywood reported that Stephen Lang signed on to play the role of Commander Taylor. An executive producer, David Fury, left the series as a result of creative differences. In September, Shelley Conn landed the female lead role. In October, Mido Hamada was cast as a security head, while Landon Liboiron, Naomi Scott, and Alana Mansour were cast as the three children. In November, Christine Adams was cast as Mira. In May 2011, Rod Hallett was added as a series regular.
The cast and crew returned to Queensland, Australia on May 20, 2011 to continue production on the first season. Filming commenced on May 25, 2011. With a long production process on the series, it was announced that the first season would consist of thirteen episodes to finish airing in December 2011.

I am gonna give it a try. What I didn't like about the first episode is that I felt like they revealed too much, should have been kept more mysterious. It was shown that the son wrote these formulas and that he rebels his father which could have been unraveled later Cast wise, I really like Jason O'Mara - he is quite the DILF and the soldier who is into the daughter is super cute, too

it was alright, I'm not really into the "dinos or giant bloodsucking bugs" plot, but fine.
And yeah, felt like too much stuff revealed already, not that mystical as it could be.

I was disappointed in the script and couldn't make it through the first episode.

haha I actually agree with that, but the dinosaur part is enough for me to want to watch it! loll I'm not sure if I like the fact that they made up dinosaurs species tho, it can be really interesting but hopefully they won't put too much unrecorded species. They already had one in the last episod I think, the "slashers".

Really? I thought it was real species which existed before.
Not bad then, at least they're believable.
