Number 8 was played by Grace Park, currently in the CBS remake of "Hawaii Five-0".

If you're referring to my post, that would be Grace Park... who played Boomer (as in the ship full of nekkid Boomers).

What was the line from South Park last night? "You're watching History Channel, where the Truth is history!"

Say hello to Giorgio's Hair for us! :D

Ronald Craig says:
So basically, you're saying that it's OK by you (or is it just *for* you) to make claims in public about things other people have done and then to ignore or laugh off requests for you to substantiate those claims? Correct?

And you're the person who is lecturing atheists about their morality in the Religion forum? Hypocrite.

Sielberg is mostly formula driven these days.

All of Hollywood is formula-driven anymore. The difference is that Spielberg's decades of movie-making means that his formulas work.

He seems to be an everywhere-producer these days, like Bruckheimer. Even if Spielberg just attends a few meetings and tweaks a script on a project, it could mean the difference between success and failure.

I seriously doubt a pricey cgi-driven movie like "Jurassic Park 4" would have been green-lighted without Spielberg at the helm.

I'm enjoying "Terra Nova" on Monday nights on Fox, I believe. For a (rare) TV example of a Family Adventure Series, it moves along at a good clip with enough intriguing elements to hold my interest.

Anyone else watching it?

I stopped watching it after a few episodes. Thought is was kind of boring and I wasn't impressed by the effects. Has it gotten better?

I dropped off watching "Terra Nova" for awhile too. But they seem to be hitting their stride, with more complex and adult storylines, and less cutesy kids and hormonal-teenagers.

I checked the ratings. They keep coming in third in that time slot on Mondays, with about a 7 million viewers. So I hope it sticks around for awhile.

The show needs slightly less expenditure on FX and more on ABC's.

The mom & teen daughter are well-cast. They look so much alike, they could actually be related.

Still waiting for the big emo scene when the daughter's bf suggests they have a threesome with her mom. Watch for it around sweeps time.

I was kind of turned off by the concept. To me it's like Jurassic Park meets Gilligan's Island or Lost. I read Star Trek's Brannon Braga is a writer /Producer. Is he still there? It's kind of sad that we have to watch a program with a throwback to the dionsaur era. Says a lot for the thinking behind it. If it was a TV version of JP, it's going in the lost sea of failed sci fi programs. I don't know how the executives expect us to embrace this stuff.

You could also view it as symbolic of the let's-crap-up-this-planet-then-escape viewpoint. ;)

"Once again, this is a Family Adventure show with some interesting SF elements, and is not hard-core SF. And tomorrow night is their Season Finale" and you will obey or be EEXXTTEERRMMIINNAATTEEDD!

Well, yes.... i am watching it. I like it, enough to DVR it, anyways.

Lena -

The ratings of last Monday's are holding steady: third in that time period (meaning it beat out one of the Big Three networks), with about 7 million viewers.

I was mistaken about the Finale. That is a two hour episode next Monday (12/19), with bad guys from the future and a major war over the settlement.
