No More 'Terra Nova' for J00

From its IMDB page.
R.I.P., Terra Nova.  Well, sort of, or maybe, or probably, or something like that.  Fox has ousted Stephen Spielberg's dinosaur show with the great concept and the mediocre writing.  I'm sad to see it go, as it was one of the few real family shows left, but I'm not surprised, because what I saw of it wasn't all that good.

The show was about a family joining a group of colonists who go back in time to live in the Cretaceous; it was more-or-less the Swiss Family Robinson with Dinosaurs and guns.

According to the BBC, Fox has dropped the show but is looking to sell it to another network.  If it does continue, I personally suggest they get new writers and subject the show to some serious retcon.  In particular, they should throw out that dumb detail about the rebels having control of their only source of iron.  I mean, seriously, they got a rift in the space-time continuum that opens to the year 2149.  Can they honestly not call up the future and say, "Yo, send iron"?

Thanks to a reader for sending this in.
