Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

There's no lack of investment, ambition and scale on display in Terra Nova. Backed by Steven Spielberg, the premise of the show sends a family back to prehistoric times, on a mission to rescue the human race. It's not a new idea: change the past to affect the future. What lifts Terra Nova, though, is its commitment to bringing a blockbuster style to the small screen.

From the visually stunning first episode, it's clear there's been a commitment to get the look and feel of Terra Nova just right. It's a compelling world that's created, and the family in the midst of it, led by Jason O'Mara's Jim Shannon, have a real battle on their hands. It is the human side that sometimes lets the side down a little, with the weaker moments of Terra Nova coming when some of the storylines feel like retreads of different shows. But it really comes together by the end of the season run, and there are some terrific episodes here.

One of the bonuses of the disc set, too, is to see a previously-unscreened extended version of the last ever episode of the show. You also, though, get a special director's diary feature, and an assortment of behind the scenes featurettes on the four-disc set. It's an interesting, muddled show, certainly, but Terra Nova still has enough moments to warrant watching. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Terra Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in doubt, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past.

When scientists at the FERMI Particle Accelerator unexpectedly discovered a fracture in time that made it possible to construct a portal into primeval history, the bold notion was born to resettle humanity in the past--a second chance to rebuild civilisation and get it right this time. The series centres on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet forbidding land. Jim Shannon (Jason O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family through this new world of limitless beauty, mystery and terror.

Episode List:
  • Genesis (Part 1)
  • Genesis (Part 2)
  • Instinct
  • What Remains
  • The Runaway
  • Bylaw
  • Nightfall
  • Proof
  • Vs.
  • Now You See Me
  • Within
  • Occupation
  • Resistance (extended finale--never before seen on TV)

Fox are renowned for cancelling many of the tv shows they air without giving them a real chance and Terra Nova is unfortunately one of those shows. Are thirteen episodes really enough to get people fully immersed in a show and give it a chance to live out its potential? I don't think so.
As for the show, admittedly there are many incidents where it descends into cliche but that lessens as the season progresses and gradually the plots take some unexpected and intriguing arcs. Spielberg clearly had a hand in this show, it has sets and landscapes reminiscent of the Jurassic Park trilogy and the dinos themselves are brilliantly done with some movie quality special effects (particularly in the awesome season finale). The concept is as follows: earth is dying, the air poisoned by mankinds ravaging of nature and so when a time rift opens, offering a door into a cleaner, admittedly far more dangerous, past what remains of the government seizes it and starts shipping people through in a very stargate like way. The Shannons are one of those families and thus become the protagonists for the entire season. Some might say that this is where Terra Nova made its mistake as the family are given a nice clean home, jobs and their daughter feeds some dinosaurs and its all, at first, too clihed, cutesy and geared towards a young audience. Yes, there are some tense scenes in a dino chase and guns and a strange, violent group of outsiders called the sixers- but in the pilot and the first couple of episodes it never gets gritty enough or mature enough.
However, as the episodes leave behind the formulaic, 'case of the week' plots and intriguing questions begin to arise, Terra Nova begins to take off and i did find myself addicted and very entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awsome with great potential 12 Mar 2012
By Chris
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't understand people giving this only one or two stars. This series has the potential to go for many seasons, and so what if there isn't any swearing! There wasn't any (that I can remember) in Star Gate SG1 - and that went on for TEN seasons. As for the weapons only being non-lethal! If you only open your eyes and pay attention you'll see there are lethal weapons. The non-lethal ones are for use against other people. I felt like crying when a friend told me that the series had been cancelled. Why does this world have so many with no imagination? When I think of other wonderful series that have been chopped such as Firefly, then I wonder what really goes on behind the scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good show, but..... 7 Aug 2012
By Daz
Format:DVD
Really enjoyed this show, and towards end of season 1 showed great potential and had me hooked, but then it appeared that the show got cancelled, bound for the graveyard of murdered shows like so many before it. And it is because of this, I only give it 3 stars. i cannot believe they are actually releasing this on DVD here in the UK, knowing there is essentially no ending, so be warned, if you buy this you will get drawn in, enjoy it, and then finally face disappointment as you realize there will be no more episodes.

If you are willing to accept an unfinished story, then buy it, as it is good, just be prepared for a sudden ending and disappointment. US networks, try to have a little more patience before you go cancelling shows...

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 24 Sep 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I always love a TV series that gives the viewer not only a set of characters that they can get behind but gives them a journey into a Science Fiction world that not only keeps you glued but also gives an overall arc that is not only fascinating but also gives a darker edge to the individual episodes.

That and more was achieved with Terra Nova and whilst its unfortunately one of the casualties of One Series Culling, it was a series that gave the viewer dinosaurs, survival as well as human interest. It had some great talent, Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars US), Steven Lang (Avatar) and with the might of Spielberg behind it was a series that had so much going for it.

All in, whilst only thirteen episodes, it was a series that had a solid grounding for the future with enough threads to not only expand for quite some time but also to keep it going for multiple outings. A great shame that its been cancelled but overall, definitely something that I really enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance, you'll see why 8 Feb 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I think the bad reviews are a bit harsh and, in my opinion, based on very unrealistic expectations. Everyone latched on to the fact that it was a spielberg creation and of course it had dinosaurs in it. The truth is, this is its own beast. There are moments when it losses it, about 3/4 the way through, but it saves it self towards the end and in fact, even the lull isn't anything to throw your popcorn out for.

I think this has been a cracking series, a must for sci-fi fans. True sci-fi nuts will get this, these other tourists should go back to watching 'Lost' or something more mainstream. Sci-fi fans, give this a go!
