Terra Nova: Sure, Why Not?
I finally watched the whole two-hour Terra Nova premiere (but not last night's episode yet), and I think it doesn't know what it wants to be yet, but I'm happy to give it some time to figure it out. It's possible that it will end up as an awful mess, of course, but it's possible it will end up as an interesting exploration of societal issues, and/or an intriguing mystery, and/or a fun, mindless family adventure story, and any of those options would be okay with me. There's an argument to be made that it's trying too hard to be everything to everyone, but it's too early to say whether that will end up being good or bad in the long run. Jason O'Mara is pretty, there's a nerdy older daughter to identify with, and, hey, dinosaurs!
