Oh, good. Terra Nova looks like it's just reusing the Aeon Flux city-set!

And, yes, it's a military dictatorship run by space marines. Awesome.

"Doctor of Science in immunology, bacteriology, and other ologies I can't pronounce..."

Hi, I'll be your amusingly salty military governor! Do you like giant dinosaur skulls?

Haha!

Governor: What I ought to do is throw you outside the wall and let you fend for yourself.

Our main guy: What you ought to do is give me a gun and a badge and let me do what I'm good at. There must be some bad guys around here who need catching?

Oh! Good idea! Give the escaped fugitive a gun so he can "catch bad guys" at the military-controlled colony comprised entirely of scientists and toadies selected by the government!

Luckily...the governor puts him on farming detail. But, for a second there, I was worried.

Son: I guess we just have to forget about the last two years we had to fend for ourselves because dad was in jail!

*gasp!*

Yeah, a hard two years with your wealthy, highly-specialized mother that got you out of a dystopian nightmare and into a prehistoric paradise run by a lovable sea captain and his team of extraordinarily attractive officers. Sad.

First dinosaur! The little girl feeds it and smiles and shows no fear at an animal that's the size of a building because she's a sweet child.

Also -- the jungle is full of sonic mines to keep dinosaurs away, yet the dinosaurs can still get right up to the fence and frolic with Terra Novans?

Why is there so much worry about whether or not coming to Terra Nova was the right thing?

Was it? I don't know....hmmm...lawless paradise or choke to death on a dead Earth. Hmmm...

Cake or death!

"You used up the hot water."

"The solar panels can only heat up so much at one time."

"Yeah, blame it on the sun."

Countdown to the oldest son getting punched by someone begins...now!

Oh! They explain the paradox.

So they've started a "new time stream." Butterfly effect discussion. Blah blah. (Actors turn to camera and take each of our hands.)

Actually, the son's attitude makes sense. I hate everyone at Terra Nova, too.

The doctors use gigantic leeches to "get rid of excess oxygen from the blood" when folks chronically hyperox-whatever.

Yes. Seriously. I can't believe I just typed that. People are hyperventilating so...they bleed them with a bookbag-sized leech?

Kids blow off steam by sneaking out into the jungle and high diving into swimming holes. I'm sure nothing will go wrong! This scene can't possibly end with them running from velociraptors!

Also, the kids find signs of advanced, intelligent life and don't report it?

"I found this while exploring."

*geometric patterns/equations*

"Who did this?"

"I don't know. But why do it on a bunch of rocks?" Hee-haw!

The girl then goes on to say that the kid can't mention this because the whole place is off limits. "It's as if Taylor doesn't want anybody to know about this place."

So! Anyway. Back to swimming. ASK NO QUESTIONS!
