    I generally stopped watching TV series years ago. The only exception is "The Walking Dead" right now and stuff on HBO/SHO/STARZ.

    I usually wait and see if a series actually makes it all the way to a "Good" ending and then I usually buy the whole shebang on Blue-ray at Amazon. No commercials to skip through, no waiting a week, a month, six month for the next episode to arrive.

    On my bullpen is Battlestar Galactica right now. After that I will take on "24" and "Breaking Bad - which is still progress"

    If you only watch shows that make it to a good ending you want to skip this one.

    Is that it? No more Terra Nova?
    I ask only so I can perform housekeeping on my DVR.

    The BSG ending sucked big time, I did enjoy the ride though.

    Yeah. There have been rumors that the show isn't dead. But back in late March Deadline Hollywood reported:
    That article mentioned that the cast had not been released at that time. But in early April The Hollywood Reporter reported:
    And we've now seen Stephen Lang on "In Plain Sight" though that wasn't a big commitment. Both he and Jason O'Mara are starring in the eight-hour six episode mini-series "To Appomattox" scheduled to be filmed later this year and aired in 2013. Shelley Conn was a guest star in some episodes of the popular BBC drama "Silent Witness" and has been talked about as a possible regular.

    Nothing announced yet would preclude a 2013 10-13 episode return, but indications are the show is dead.

    So to be safe, I should keep the SL for now. Thanks phrelin. I posted the same type request in the "Luck" thread if you have any insight on that program.

    Sad to hear about Terra Nova. We really liked the show.
    I gave up on Alcatraz after 3 episodes. They all seemed the same.
    I really like ONCE UPON A TIME, SMASH, AWAKE and REVENGE. I am recording TOUCH but haven't watched any of them.
    Kind of bummed last year when the cancelled COMBAT HOSPITAL.
    I am totally tired of shows like AMERICAN EGO, DANCING WITH THE PLANETS, THE VOCAL CORD.

    If you liked Terra Nova, you might try Outcasts on NetFlix or some other provider of BBC HD content. I've watched three episodes, out of eight, and I think it's better than Terra Nova. Not much computer generated graphics, but the cast is easily as good and the story lines, so far, are much better.

    SyFy hasn't been SciFy since they changed their name to SyFy.

    Meh. The pilot was great but, with sophomoric scripts, the show quickly moved to "the great middle" of mediocrity after that. We dropped it after the 5th episode or so.

    Formulaic network crapola. Agree, promising pilot which turned into Lost in Space. The nets have a way of taking sci-fi and grinding it into safe, unimaginative, write-by-the-numbers pablum for the lowest common denominator of mouth-breather trailer trash. The real dinos are the nets. They'll be extinct in a few short years.

    If the nets shink into the tar pits who will replace them?

    It's funny, I keep forgetting this TV show ever existed. I think this thread has been going on longer than the show did.

    This thread was dead and buried.

    Then Craig Ferguson went to Scotland to make a few episodes of his show. While he was there last week, CBS reran some old episodes, but the guide data didn't identify them as repeats, instead giving a current "first aired" date. One of those programs was the one right after Fox announced Terra Nova was to be cancelled, and Craig commented on it. I think somebody saw that, thought it was news, and this thread was brought back to life.
