Take a deep breath in and out. Again. Don’t panic. Yes, there are a lot of shows on, but you can handle it. Your DVR may implode, but you’ll be fine. *laugh* It’s seriously crazy, I know! But I am so damn glad we’ve got all this great TV on! What new shows have you watched? Which have you enjoyed so far? One new series I really enjoyed was Poppy Montgomery’s Unforgettable. But there are a lot I really liked and can’t wait to see more of, so… Let’s see what’s on this week to make us happy, huh? – Jenny
There is one show that Megan, Kyle, and I all wanted to recommend, and rather than splitting it up into 3 separate choices, we decided to combine it. FOX’s Terra Nova looks like it’ll be one of the most exciting shows on network television in a while. From FOX: “Terra Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in jeopardy, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past. The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet foreboding land. The show stars Jason O’Mara (Life on Mars), Stephen Lang (Avatar), and Christine Adams (TRON: Legacy), along with Shelley Conn (Mistresses), Landon Liboiron (Degrassi: The Next Generation), Allison Miller (Kings), Naomi Scott (Life Bites), Alana Mansour. Read on to find out why we think you should watch.
Jenny: Dinosaurs! Beautiful scenery! Interesting storylines! Seriously, the show seems to have it all. I love a show that can combine elements of every genre, from science fiction/fantasy, to drama, to comedy. The show was shot in Australia, so you know before you even see it that the setting is going to be gorgeous. The promos have been interesting, letting us know that this new world is not the Utopia you would think. Be sure and check out our Jason O’Mara interview for more!
Megan: I just had to suggest Terra Nova, even though Kyle and Jenny are both also suggesting it. You can’t have too much of a good thing, and Terra Nova is a really good thing. I loved the pilot. It was seriously epic. The show isn’t just about dinosaurs, or adventure; it’s about family and struggles. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than being a parent, and watching the sacrifices these parents have to make for their children to survive is moving. That said, it’s not all drama. There’s a touch of humour and lots of adventure. You’d be a fool to miss out on this new, and sure to be hit drama.
Kyle: Tonight’s Terra Nova premiere is feature film quality, giving us some excellent Jurassic Park style Dino action and an interesting premise. I could also see some influences from some of my favorite TV shows, such as Stargate and the third season of Lost. The premiere also sets up some great story arcs and mysteries that I can’t wait to see explored.
Do not miss the 2-hour series premiere tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Terra Nova @ Clicker.
