Spielberg’s Terra Nova: What’s with people wanting to live with dinosaurs?
Time for a few new rants! FOX debuted the trailer for their new Steven Spielberg series, Terra Nova during American Idol tonight.
I initially thought was going to be a commercial for something like car insurance or deodorant — you know how these commercials fool around with us.
My household only took notice because the damn trailer was quite long. And honestly, we were really only watching Idol to see Beyoncé‘s “Run The World” video premiere — regardless of how much the song sucks.
Yea, I said it. Back to Terranova — it is not a Geico commercial but instead apart of FOX‘s Fall 2011 lineup and a lot of people seem to be really excited about it.
Now don’t get me wrong, I was with it until I was punched into the 90’s with DINOSAURS!? What is this? Jurrassic Park meets random futuristic new world order and corruption?
You can build machines that zap people back 85 million years into the Cretaceous period but they’ll have to live in huts and with prehistoric creatures? Really!? #TechFail. See the trailer for Terra Nova below.
More importantly, I asked myself, “who the hell wants to live with frickin’ dinosaurs?” Yea it’s all cool and AWESOME when they eat plants and trees and let you ride on their tails but how about when they eat all the damn people!?
The show producers insist that Terra Nova is nothing like ‘Lost‘… yea right.
We’ve seen this before and don’t need to see it again. I don’t know if I like Degrassi‘s Landon Liboiron enough to watch this show. A very few people have echoed my cynical sentiments, like @RobTorossian on twitter:
Dear #Terranova, Jurassic Park called and wants its plot back. Sincerely, the 90s

So yea, here’s the plot:
The story 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.”
Well, we like that the cast is remotely diverse but Terra Nova will have to have one hell of a plot to compete with it’s overdone concept.
