    So that just happened!

    Season 1 is over ... will there be a Seaon 2?

    Do you want a Season 2?

    The finale was good, but they didn't explain how Skye became part of the plot to swap cargo carriers. I guess she had a communicator but they skipped over it.

    I really liked the first season and hope there's a second.

    If it does come back, boy are Mira and [strike]Josh[/strike] Lucas going to be looking to settle some scores with Taylor... :)

    Terra Nova definitely improved as the season progress.

    Hope they don't leave us hanging.

    Despite some of the family melodrama which I would expect on some Disney/ABC show, I like the show.

    Where they've left it has a lot of story potential and given the situation the sweet family melodrama might be far less in future seasons as everyone gears down for survival in a story situation much more akin to "Lost" and I'm totally confused about the whole time line issue here.

    Also I think we have a wild card with the Mira character - is she really going to hang out with those other guys when there's no incentive for her?

    Yeah, the Badlands is a new mystery. How does someone from 2149 know that these artifacts exist in the Badlands, when the folks who live on Terra Nova have no idea there is anything there?

    And how does a ship's prow from the 19th century end up in the Cretaceous era?

    They did say that they are on a different Earth, so perhaps that will play into it...

    Seems to me the artifact indicates there must have been another "fracture" in the time continuum in the 19th century. My guess is there's a portal out in the badlands that can be used to get back to the future.

    Aw crap. I missed the last several minutes of recording. Seems like I missed quite a bit. I'll have to look online for it.

    That would be my guess too.

    I thought it was great!!! Best episodes so far. I hope there is a Season 2. Fox better do the right thing and renew it!

    TVline.com is reporting a ratings uptick for the finale, so that's good news.

    However, they also said in their article about the finale that the artifact was from the 18th century, when I recall hearing Malcolm say it was from the mid-eighteen-hundreds, which would make it a 19th century artifact. So either my hearing and memory are off or TVline.com doesn't know how to name centuries!

    Let me quote myself:

    The big question for Fox is whether to try the show on another night - perhaps, Friday as it has with other scifi shows which as a genre doesn't work too well particularly on a network that cannot maintain a consistent schedule. Or maybe they'll settle for ratings like this as it seems to be about the best they can do except for sports and game shows.

    I liked it and thought it was a good ending. Hopefully, it will be around for another season.

    I think the cost of this show is going to be a major factor in the decision.
    This was one of the most expensive shows launched this fall, along with Pan Am.
    Does Fox really want to continue to invest in a show with mid-level ratings?

    Then again, Fox's schedule is starting to look mighty old and creaky...

    I really enjoyed this show. Much more than I thought I would. The finale was great. I just wish they would have killed off that little twirp. I cheered when I thought he was dead.

    At first I thought they did a "Planet of the Apes" on us. Terra Nova is actually in the future rather than in the past.

    I hope the show is renewed. Would like to see where they take it.

    High cost is what caused Eureka to be canceled, not lack of quality. Terra Nova might suffer the same fate. I hope not.

    FOX has deferred it's decision to renew Terra Nova until next month or later keeping everyone in suspense. I too like the show and would like to see it renewed.

    I thought the same thing. That they were actually in the future and not the past. That would also explain why the probe that was first sent through was never found in the present as it was really sent to the future.

    The moon being closer to the Earth would be contradictory to that plot line, however.
