Terra Nova Preview Commercial

By Chris Beveridge     February 07, 2011


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.

That looks pretty damn terrific for a television series. I hope they can keep that up for the duration of the series. I was checking this out anyway but that 30 seconds cemented it for me.

 If only Steven Spielberg would do Land of the Lost ... oh, wait ... he did.

I'll definitely check out the premier.

Looks great... Too bad its Fox. Wont want to get attached too early, since they'll just cancel it

A good sci fi series on FOX! That should last about 1/2 a season before they move it to another night, probably Friday. then cancel it without airing the last 3 episodes

OK but WHY would they go back in time to an era before the dinosaurs faced extinction?  Wouldn't the temporally displaced humans really only be facing the same situation just 85 million years earlier?  What genius thought, "Oh we're facing extinction in the year 2149. let's use all our resources to go back in time and we can face extinction WITH the Dinos instead of all alone."

Good 2nd point trollman but I am still intrigued by this show.  It does sound a little like "Land of the Lost" but I guess we will never see that happen right!!!

 I"m guessing they stumbled upon this portal by accident and that is the only time they can go back to.
