A few weeks ago, I settled in to watch the extremely long pilot to Terra Nova. Naturally, I was drawn to this show because I like a good thrill and my ornithoscelidaphobic tendencies led me to believe I could be deliciously scared after watching it. I was, however, disappointed after the first episode. Now I will save my “pilot Terra Nova” rant for another time, but sitting through that two hour monster episode, all I could think about was how sub-par I found the acting. I mean, the main character (played by Jason O’Mara) seemed stiff—not at all like the man I was pretty sure played some cop who was mysteriously sent back to the 1970s to solve crimes in that show that was canceled a few years ago.
