Fox slid in one of its preview commercials during the Super Bowl last night for the Fall 2011 series Terra Nova. The show is going to get a preview during the sweeps portion of May this year to build some excitement over the decidedly big budget science fiction TV series set in the prehistoric times with lots and lots of CGI dinosaurs.
Plot summary: The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction. In an effort to save the human race, scientists develop a portal allowing travel 85 million years back in time to prehistoric Earth. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy and Zoe) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they are unaware that the colony is in the middle of a group of carnivores; not all of them reptiles.
