I enjoy the show much more after seeing the second episode than after just seeing the first. In the first, the son seems like just anotherstupid, annoying teen, going "OTG" on his first day just to piss of his dad. The leader seemed a little, I don't know, insane?, and for some reason instated the fugitive dad to his right-hand man after around a week of being there. And what's up with the security in front of the giant rip in the time-space continuum, where an escaped convice can just run twenty feet and hit one guard, and now he's safe from all prosecution? Don't they think they'de beef up security there? But that's just me over-analyzing.
In the second episode, the son stopped being annoying, in one of the quickest positive character changes I've EVER seen in a TV show, that leader is actually pretty funny, and the plot become good enough where I actually care what's happening the the main characters and to the entire population of Terra Nova - in just two episodes! And also, with the new introduction of the virus that erases people's memories that is shown in the preview for the next episode, I'm ttally into the story, and I'm already trying to guess what happens.
Here's my random guesses from my first glance - these could possibly be spoilers, depending on how much you've seen:
- I think either the son's "girlfriend" in Terra Nova or the wife's "friend" are the Sixer in Terra Nova, as they both would have an impact on the major character's if they turned out to be evil
- I think that the virus will infect the son, and the "girlfriend" will trick him into thinking that he loves HER, not the girl he left behind
- I think that one of the main characters will die very soon, most likely the leader of Terra Nova, putting them in a position to have to enstate a new leader, which will probably end up being the dad
There are just my random guesses, we'll see what really happens. Anyone else who's seen this show have any predictions to the future of the plot?
Anyway, here's a summary - Terra Nova is an interesting show, with a greast plot and characters that you really start to love - after the first episode. The enemies are inventive, the sixers a little but mostly the dinosaurs, with a new species every episode in the past two episodes, with probably isn't saying much, to come and annoy the inhabitents of Terra Nova. The plot is great, and leaves you guessing as to what will happen next. And even the music
is pretty good. This is definately a show I recommend watching.
