Still finding some flaws in the logic of the plot, among other things, I was hooked from the start since the show was a fun guilty pleasure adventure series and made pretty damn good tv. Fox got good ratings from it but wanted a huge hit that made up for how expensive it was to make, kind of like with Firefly.
But to me 12 episodes wasn't time to even capture as many fans as it might have eventually since some shows don't get viewers until mid-season or the second season and....this show had neither! Next time, Fox if a show costs too much to make....don't make it and save us fans the misery when you decide to cancel it! Do us a favor and cancel garbage like American Idol! Instead, I'm sure Alcatraz and Fringe are next when Touch is boring and dumb but some how has viewers. Shows that are actually good just aren't keepers these days!
As with Firefly, FOX wrapped me into a story line and then they unceremoniously dumped it after one season without completing the story. With Firefly, at least we had Whedon's persistence to complete the journey. He fought hard and got himself a feature length film (Serenity) with which to tie up most of the story lines in a rather neat ending. You can buy the complete Firefly story on DVD and enjoy it, give it as a gift, etc. We don't have that here. We have a ton of unanswered questions that will never be answered. Giving Terra Nova to someone as a gift would mean you probably don't like that person all that much. FOX will not be getting my money for this DVD set unless they make an ending to the story!
FOX had a golden "Gene Roddenberry" opportunity to show us a world in which we could be better than we are -- a world of literal fresh starts. In Star Trek, Roddenberry showed us a future full of equality, justice, and plenty; in the turmoil of the 1960's that was beacon of hope. Terra Nova had that same kind of chance to entertain us with wonderful characters solving the usual TV problems, like cops and robbers, medical epidemics, and political strife, while at the same time saying something important about ecology: how to live off the land, and with the Earth, so as to avoid the global warming pitfalls. AND, not only that, but they had JURASSIC PARK-quality special-effects dinosaurs adding the threat, and the charm, of nature to everything. Imagine what truths FOX could have taught about the actual living creatures of 80 million years ago; with one palentologist consultant on the writing staff, we might have actually learned something. FOX could have shown us the distant past that truly was, as well as one possible future that might have been, but they tossed that moment away at the end of the first season. The real hero of that show was the Shannon family. "Family" was the bond and the strength and the real winner of each episode. We need to see the second season because we so desire to see the family win. (And that little Zoey is a living doll; I'll miss watching her grow up.) It's too late now to bring the show back, but we'd still like to see ALL that there is ... whatever has already been made of it, at least. Release Season 2 on DVD, please. I promise to buy it.

I caught a few episodes of this show when it first aired and it took me a long time to get a hold of it. I have no regrets, I love this show!Published 20 days ago by Mario Leblanc
A great show that died before its time. At least they ended season 1 and closed one story - though they left it open for a second season - which never came. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Amazon Customer

I liked this show also. I watched all the episodes. But I think it started to loose it's appeal. Not sure why. I don't think I would buy the series. It will never end. I'm not sure if they would put it on blu ray. I am surprised they are releasing it at all.

|Is it DVD or Blu-Ray???||
It doesn't?, I hadn't noticed that. Anyway- it's DVD, says so on the back of the case, and I've played it on a couple of DVD players.
I think some other review for this series ( or was that Stargate Universe ?) said that unrenewed shows didn't usually get Blu-ray treatment. See the Blu-ray... Read More

Don't know, but I hope somebody picks it up. What a cool show! It's the only other one I liked next to Walking Dead.
