Why I Stopped Watching Terra Nova
The cool footage like the picture above and the interesting premise--traveling back in time to prehistoric earth--got me hooked enough to watch the first couple episodes, but the show failed to hold my attention. I just wasn't interested enough to keep watching, mainly because I felt it couldn't decide whether it was for kids about kids, for families about a family, or for adults about adults. It seemed to be trying to be all of these, and failing at all of them.
The plot line of the first episodes I watched was also not very exciting, and I felt like the writers could have been more original than having the rebellious teen run off outside the compound with a bunch of friends and be chased by dinosaurs.
Did anyone keep watching the first season and like it? Think I should give it another chance?
