FOX seems to have a questionable habit of pulling the trigger too soon on series that take a while to get their bearings ("Firefly" readily comes to mind) and I think they may have acted prematurely with "Terra Nova." That being said, the first (only) season of "Terra Nova" is worthy of inclusion in any collection of Science Fiction video. While it has an ending that leaves the viewer wondering what will happen and wanting more, it is an ending that is worthy of the genre of speculative fiction. I regret the series was cancelled but I don't regret having this set in my permanent collection.
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!
When you consider all the junk shows on the air, this is one that should have stayed.
