After seeing Spielberg’s hand in the Super 8 trailer, and now watching this trailer for the upcoming Terra Nova series, I’m starting to think the Great One has run out of ideas and is recycling his past glories.

An epic family adventure 85 million years in the making, TERRA NOVA follows an ordinary family embarking on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149 the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpolluted. With no known way to reverse the damage to the planet, scientists discover a portal to prehistoric Earth. This doorway leads to an amazing world, one that allows for a last-ditch effort to save the human race…a second chance to rebuild civilization and get it right this time.

    If you’re going back in time to give humans the chance to start over, heres a tip: go back only about 250-300k years ago. No humans, no dinosaurs, no other major civilizations, or extinction events. Just some nice farmland and nice weather. And good looking things to eat.

    Pretty much how BSG ended, btw.
