I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit of a sci-fi junky. It comes in waves though as a great majority of TV series and films out there are complete garbage. I’m the kind of person who needs to almost be fooled into accepting the premises and technology, etc of these shows as at the very least plausible. However, yes almost every premise or piece of technology in these sorts of things, when you really look into it turns out to be cemented in the realm of fiction. But that’s not the point, as I said. I like to be fooled into at least thinking about it, and if you’re driven to look into it and learn about it, etc, then the show or movie has done it’s duty aptly!
I’d probably throw Stargate up as my no. 1 favourite TV show, and movie wise… it’s never easy, but maybe the original Matrix film, or the latest Star Trek film or Inception.
Anyway, here comes a new TV series that looks interesting at least from a first glance. It’s called Terra Nova and like most things made by or affiliated with Steven Spielberg it has dinosaurs in it… WOOOO!
The reason I think it’s going to be a must watch, at least for me, is because it’s shot here in Australia in QLD! Thankfully, Spielberg vetoed filming in Hawaii as was preposed, but he’d had enough of that from Jurassic Park (1993). They also have millions to throw at this thing, so you know production is going to be impressive. Apparently each episode has a $4 million budget…!! With 250 sets already having been constructed! JESUS!
Anyway, here’s the preview for the show. Let me know what you think!
