Produced by Steven Spielberg, "Terra Nova" was a science fiction TV series in which a family joins a group of other colonists to time-travel 85 million years into the past to establish a settlement in a parallel universe equivalent to Earth's Cretaceous Period. The series was an ambitious undertaking due to its per-episode cost, which ran significantly over that of most network television shows, and its need for an abundance of high-tech special effects, which necessitated post-production periods much longer than the average for TV episodes. Spielberg chose to film in Australia rather than Hawaii, as he didn't want the series mimicking the location of his film "Jurassic Park." Rainstorms hindered the shoot, which necessitated a prolonged filming schedule.
Although early reviews of "Terra Nova" emphasized the excitement and promise of the series, by mid-season reviewers had begun to criticize the show for its substandard scripts and lack of character development. Critics agreed that the two-part season finale was strong, but it was not enough to rescue the show from oblivion. "Terra Nova" won a Critic's Choice award as one of the most exciting new TV series of 2011 and a 2011 award by the Visual Effects Society for best visual effects in a TV series.Learn more about Art & Literature
