No I haven’t been watching Terra Nova, why do you ask?

I doodled these little guys while sitting my mom’s backyard, enjoying the last of the nice weather and sipping at some tea. While I wasn’t trying to draw any species in particular, they now look kind of like short-snouted Compsognathus. I like Compies. They remind me of chickens, and I can imagine them being incredibly high-strung and jumpy little beasties.

Also, on an unrelated note, I suggest that Terra Nova’s new tag line be changed to “Terra Nova: It’s really quite ridiculous, but it has dinosaurs so you’ll watch it religiously and we know it.”

    Is it really that bad? I mean, it can’t possibly be as bad as Twilight or Vampire Diaries?

  2. It can’t possibly have enough dinosaurs.

    It’s actually pretty fun despite some logic failures and plot holes. Very reminiscent of Jurassic Park, but with people shooting dinosaurs with sonic cannons. Which is awesome.

    The one at the top right reminds me of Road Runner. Meep meep!

    They look kind of cute, like they’d make good pets.

    Totally agree that Terra Nova is completely ridiculous, but… DINOSAURS! That and the graphics get at most a “C” grade from me. I haven’t had time to look it up, but is there really a “Slasher” type dino? I know raptors have their freaking awesome claws, but I can’t recall some predatory dino having tail “tallons”.

    I thought the tagling should be TerraNova: Sending humans back 85 million years to get a head start on destroying the planet.

    Yes, it could be that bad. Honestly, I ask you, if you were with a group going back in time to establish a colony in the Jurassic, don’t you think you could do a better job of site placement?

    And following the idea to its logical conclusion… Asimov wrot a little tale about an invento who made a time machine, accidentally brought some small dinosaurs to the present, all of them incredibly dumb. Eventually, they bred, and one of them electrocuted itself on another machine.
    Turns out dinos didn`t taste like chicken.
    They taste waaaaay better than chicken!

    I really was underwhelmed with Terra Nova.

    Terra Nova was just painful to watch.

    I enjoyed Terra Nova. It was throwing a lot out there, but it was the *pilot*, that’s its job. Gotta wait to see the regular episodes to see how it settles.

    Oh, don’t get me wrong. I quite *enjoyed* the pilot for Terra Nova. But, even as I was geeking out over the dinosaurs, I was quite aware that the show had an utterly ridiculous premise. They sent a probe to the past, and because nothing has changed yet, everything must be hunky dory? Uh-huh…

    But, a show’s ridiculousness does not impact my enjoyment of it. Eureka is an utterly RIDICULOUS show (a town full of mad scientists! Just don’t think too hard about the “science”, or you’ll ruin the fun ride!!), but I love it to bits. I think that Terra Nova will be like that. I’m going to ignore the plot holes, the wierd science, and the boatloads of paradox, and simply squeal everytime a dinosaur comes on screen.

    Because, DUDE! DINOSAURS!!!! EeeeeEEEEeeeEEEEEE!!!

    First thing I thought when I saw this. “Abbey is a dinosaur!”

    Alina’s drawing dinosaurs. This doesn’t bode well.

    Dinosaurs… time travel… meh… If you need a new human colony and have the tech for time travel, you could likely much more easily terraform mars, without risking time paradoxes and stuff. Needs more Pony, anyway.

    *Spielberg adds Ponysaurs!* I’ll watch it now!! 😀

    *The Ponysaurs go into a time portal and end up in New York City… persued by Gargamel and vampires… who need them to take over Ancient Egypt… to capture the Greys who built the pyramids… so they can stop the Goa’uld… and Nazis.* Now that would be utterly… actually kinda neat. Like “Plan 9 from Outer Space” on crack.
