FOX announced, months in advance, that "Terra Nova" would premiere "Glee"-style, delivering the premiere in May before actually beginning in earnest in the fall. That didn't happen, but the show is actually beginning for real and true tonight!
The much discussed series is all about a bunch of people going back in time to try to settle on Earth before humans came along and mucked it up so badly. These colonists have the idea that by knowing the mistakes we've made the first time we can do it right the second time. We have to imagine that it doesn't actually go as smoothly as they might like. Plus, as the previews show, there are dinosaurs and that should be fun.
