Terra Nova - 1x01 Genesis


The Shannon family joins the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet foreboding land. Jim Shannon, a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family through this new world of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. Jim's wife, Elisabeth, is a trauma surgeon and the newest addition to Terra Nova's medical team. Josh is their 17-year-old son who is torn to leave life as he knows it behind; upon arriving at the settlement, he finds himself instantly drawn to the beautiful and rule-breaking Skye. Maddy, Josh's endearingly awkward 15-year-old sister, hopes Terra Nova will give her a chance to reinvent herself. Although Elisabeth's medical training secured the family a spot on the pilgrimage, a secret involving their five-year-old daughter, Zoe, soon endangers their place in this utopia. Upon the Shannons' arrival, they are introduced to Cmdr. Nathaniel Taylor, the charismatic and heroic first pioneer and leader of the settlement. Taylor warns the travelers that while Terra Nova is a place of new opportunities and fresh beginnings, all is not as idyllic as it initially appears. Along with blue skies, towering waterfalls and lush vegetation, the surrounding terrain is teeming with danger - and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. There is also a splinter colony of renegades led by the battle-hardened Mira, who is vehemently opposed to Taylor and his leadership.

Sigh, always the same bullshit with those Spanish guys ... Been having trouble with 'em since the start of FMTV. The rules are the rules.

English, motherfucker! Do you speak it?

Anyway, I didn't expect I'd like it, but I did. If only there weren't so many cliches, this would be a great show.

@Chic4Geek I agree, english is not the only language in the world, but it is the most common spoken language for our userbase. You can talk any language on the profiles. The only thing we ask is to keep it to english on the show and episode pages :)

Mixed feelings after the first ep..

Srry for using dutch ;-)

The first part definitely felt rushed, but the interesting stuff happens after, so it was excusable. I felt like the second half picked up a lot and started developing the storylines.
