Am I the only one who thinks Terra Nova is going to be a gigantic shiat pile?

It's the most-hyped new TV show of the Fall season and it's got everything: disastrous climate change, time travel, dinosaurs, really good looking people, dinosaurs, people fighting against incredible odds, dinosaurs, human will surviving no matter what the challenge and dinosaurs. Did I mention there are dinosaurs?

If you haven't heard of Terra Nova, it's the story of 1,000 humans from the year 2149 who need to flee an Earth ruined by climate change and decide to travel back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth.

Stop right there.

Why the fark are you going back to a time when there are gigantic motherfarking carnivores running around when your only goal is to avoid climate change? You could go back to the early 20th century and use your 22nd century knowledge to produce products that are so superior to the internal combustion engine and the incandescent light bulb, you could make it so that no one ever hears of Edison, Diesel, Daimler, Benz, et al and prevent the mass pumping of carbon into the atmosphere.

 

If you wanted to show people struggling to survive in a time without modern conveniences, you could go back 10,000 years or 50,000 years or pretty much any time after the Toba supereruption.

 

Read that link. As few as 2,000 people survived. ON THE ENTIRE PLANET. Almost everything ever done by humans before Toba was wiped out.

 

But no. If you went back just 50,000 years, then you couldn't have people running around while CGI dinosaurs chase them. Well FARK YOU. Maybe the knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, Wal Mart-shopping, Bill O'Reilly-fellating Fox viewers will watch, but not me. I'll just watch Nova or Discovery Channel, thanks.

 

And really...somebody figured out time travel, but no one figured out how to reverse climate change?
