They're doing yet another remake.

I'll probably have to see it.

...with apologies to Marshal Dillon.

Two was enough for me. I'll be staying home watching some 100% new and original ideas on the show Lost Jurrasic Avatar....er, I mean, Terra Nova.

Why torture yourself with stuff that's dumber than advertised? I watched enough TN to wish I hadn't wasted my time. The best ending possible is the dinosaurs eating all the refugees.

Oh lordy. Looks like the reason for the remake is another refrain of "Superchick." Did I ever mention that I think that James Arness was the best actor in the original?

I was feeling pretty much the same way at the one-hour mark, when I came upstairs and got on the puter. Watched the second hour later and it DID get better. Introduced at least one long-running conflict and two (Lost-like) long-running mysteries that should hold attention and keep things interesting. I'll stick with it for a few weeks at least, and hope they don't jump any sharkasauruses.

I guess that I will watch this 3rd version when it goes to DVD or TV. I have seen the first two and still like the original best. Maybe it was the C-47 that locked me into that one.

The second one was just too much for me. Rampant special effects monsters and people acting stupidly really leaves me cold. It had a good group of actors but just didn't get the job done.

For those who missed the two-hour premiere of Terra Nova and maybe now wish they hadn't, FOX will be repeating it Saturday night at 8.

I really liked the Kurt Russell version. For the time, the special effects were amazing.

I pick my trips to the theater very carefully, considering the expense nowadays. I'll probably wait for the DVD, too.

Thanks for the tip, on Terra Nova, Snake. If nothing else, I'll DVR it for my youngest grandson. He's way into dinosaurs.

Got any help for those that watched the premiere, and maybe now wish they hadn't?

Don't tell me you didn't like it? How can you NOT like anything with dinosaurs in it?!

No refunds, but you're excused from future airings.

FWIW, I find it (so far) superior to Falling Skies.

Who doesn't like Stephen Lang.
I've liked him ever since Crime Story back in the '80s. One of the best character actors of the last two or three decades. He's so good that I often don't even recognize him at all until I see his name in the closing credits of something. :eek:
