'Terra Nova'

<b>What we said then:</b> "Like a big-budget 'Land of the Lost,' with soldiers instead of Sleestaks, <a href="http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/terra-nova-review-little-new-ground-covered-in-otherwise-exciting-family-drama.html"><b>'Terra Nova' is another vehicle for a familiar story.</b></a> It's one we're happy to watch, just maybe not with the fervor FOX is hoping for."<br>
<br>
<b>What we say now:</b> There are moments where we see glimpses of a very good, maybe even potentially great, series on "Terra Nova." But more often we see scenes that feel overly familiar, an over-reliance on expository dialogue and an uncomfortable fit between family and adventure stories. We're still watching, but not with the hope we once had for the show.<br>
