Terra Nova


Terra Nova


It is the year 2149 and all life on Earth is about to end! That is the premise of a new science fiction show developed for television with the title of Terra Nova. It seems that, in efforts to save our planet and all human beings inhabiting it scientists must develop a travel portal which allows earthlings to travel some 85 million years backwards in time. This means we must go back to prehistoric times on our planet and find there are large groups of carnivorous and huge dinosaurs roaming about hoping to make us their next meal. Jim Shannon and his wife Elisabeth along with their three children Maddy, Zoe, and Josh are among the 10th "pilgrimage" of settlers who travel to Terra Nova which as become the first human colony set up on the other side of that temporal doorway. And then they discover their neighbors happen to be those nasty dinosaurs. Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars, Marlowe) stars as Jim Shannon and his trauma surgeon wife Elisabeth is portrayed by Shelley Conn (Marchlands, Trial and Retribution). They and their three children are part of a group of new pioneers on planet Earth.

An ultimately glorious opening in 2012, Revolution, tells us a story about post-apocalyptic future where the blood and soul of our technically advanced world has totally dissappeared "“ the Electricity. Imagine, that in one disastrous moment some unknown phenomena will switch off all the electricity on the planet. Forever. Imagine the world without computers, batteries, machinery, lamps, automobiles, airplanes, ships and train. It's needless to say that would be the world without a bank system, a medical system, a policy and, as the result without the power at all. In Revolution, these tiny forces allowing the electrons to run inside the devices wires are all run out in one moment all over the Earth and nobody knows why and what to do in order to restore it. The Revolution action takes place after fifteen years since the "blackout" "“ the humanity is not even looks similar to what we now mean by this word. There are no United States of America, but there are lots of small republics, counties and anarchies "“ all ruled by cruel leaders. One of those leaders Sebastian "Bass" Monroe (played by David Lyons: Eat Pray Love, The Cape and Mobius) is on the hunt for a man who wears a strange amulet (it looks exactly as USB flash drive), Aaron Pittman, a former Google executive, who received this "amulet" from his friend, Ben Matheson. The "amulet" appears to be a real USB data storage, and when we learn that Ben passed it secretly to Aaron just in seconds before the "blackout" it becomes absolutely clear that the USB-drive is somehow connected with the reason of "blackout" and may be a key to restore the electricity in the world.
