'Terra Nova'

What we said then: "Like a big-budget 'Land of the Lost,' with soldiers instead of Sleestaks, 'Terra Nova' is another vehicle for a familiar story. It's one we're happy to watch, just maybe not with the fervor FOX is hoping for." What we say now: 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. -- Rick Porter, Zap2itFOX
