And the dinosaurs in this show didn't disappoint. It was just everything else that did. For those of you who haven't seen the previews I've got a little youtube video for you. Basically in the future the Earth is uninhabitable because of pollution and so humans have devised a way to go back in time (85 million years to be exact) to build a new society.
If this sounds like every environmental dystopia you've ever seen, plus Jurassic Park, plus Lost you're right. The show is incredibly derivative and just feels like a poor knock-off. The two-hour pilot, unlike a movie of a similar length, moved too quickly to actually incite any emotional involvement because it was trying to set up a whole range of future story lines rather than exploring one and bringing it to completion.
So my suggestion: Netflix a NatGeo special instead.
