This looks expensive. I read somewhere that 10 million dollars had been spent before anything was shot — okay, ridiculously expensive. The promo makes it seem like a mix of Jurassic Park, Avatar, Primeval and a pinch of Lost. Nice job of casting. Will Terra Nova be able to deliver high-level effects/stunts on a weekly basis and not break the bank? *shrugs* My guess is that the dinosaurs will mostly be heard and not seen (ala Smokey on Lost). I wish there was more focus on the characters. The promise of dino action will get some viewers to tune in, but it's the characters that'll keep them coming back. Although the concept seems better suited for a mini-series or feature length film, I'm not one to bet against Steven Spielberg.
