    Saddly this has to flop so i can get another season of Terra Nova :evil:.


    Cool that Jeffrey Pierce is on this though, so might have to watch.

    Pierce is Charlie Jade for those whom dont remember him.

    I stopped watching Terra Nova. :p

    Jorge Garcia will be fun to watch again and Sam Neill is always good. :techman:

    If this turns out to be as bad as Terra Nova, FOX should shoot itself. :wtf:

    Nothing personal but I dont understand why is everyone ragging on Terra Nova? Granted it isn't as good as a show it could be, but come on! People have been complaining the better part of the last decade that nobody takes risks in regular airwaves anymore. But when they do like in Terra Nova and such, nobody gives the show a chance. Its still entertaining and different, with a very ambitious concept.

    I like Terra Nova a lot but Alcatraz is going to be way better. And since I'm sure Fringe will be gone after this season so I'm hoping Alcatraz does well because I'll need some more JJ Abrams style sci-fi for next season.

    Looking forward to this, as I'm not watching anything regularly now... won't be able to watch it live due to work but I'll get it as soon as I can.

    I saw the pilot a few months ago. I think the idea would've been better suited for a movie. It smelled like Lost--ooo, mysterious things happening!, ooo, unexplainable things!, ooo, conspiracy! And I bet they don't have it planned out....again.

    Is it going to be prisoner of the week? Boring.

    Not tuning in.

    I'll be here as well. I remember seeing the first promos for this back in what? Late November, maybe? Thought it looked intriguing, and as Jet pointed out, it's got Sam Neill.

    Also for the record, I liked Terra Nova as well, though it took quite a while to grew on me. I hope it comes back. The final scene of the finale left me wanting to see what would happen next.

    I actually remembered to set the DVR for this... Gonna be watching Being Human in real time.

    I like the concept and I love Sam Neil, so I'm in for at least the pilot!

    Very interesting premise so far. Although this prisoner isn't too bright...he manages the ultimate get out of free card and he decides to kill someone.

    He sure found the Warden pretty quickly.

    Why do I have the feeling that we're going to have a lot of jumping back and forth between time-periods here?
