First Look at Terra Nova

Just caught the first trailer of the new science fiction series from Spielberg to debut this fall on FOX, Terra Nova.

The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction. In an effort to save the human race, scientists develop a portal allowing travel 85 million years back in time to prehistoric Earth. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy and Zoe) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they are unaware that the colony is in the middle of a group of carnivorous dinosaurs.

The series looks like it has tremendous potential, but the budget for this show is absolutely g-rex-normous. I don't know whether it will last a full season, let alone longer, but it looks interesting.

And then there's the stuff one needs to ask: How can the scientists who set the Terra Nova business up not have expected dinosaurs some 85 million years ago?
