    The first few shows will be cool, but the rest of them will probably suck. Why? Usually shows throw in a huge budget for the pilot and a couple of shows after that. But then the quality of CGI, big landscapes, and number of dinos on screen will greatly decrease. Probably about halfway through the first season it will go into characterdevelopment, drama, and you won't see a lot of dinosaurs on screenexpectfor probably a few 2 minutescenes. This happened for Walking Dead, the first few shows had tons of zombies and a tank, but then they went to a trailer in the woods and started focusing on characters and sometimes maybe a few zombies would show up.

    This is simply how television works. Terra Nova is a little different in that it is the most expensive television show ever produced. It should be applauded for this, not scrutinized.

    That may have been true about TWD and other shows but every episode of Tera Nova has a four million dollar budget excep Genesis which is $12 million so I do't think lack of dinosaurs\sfx etc. will be a problem.

    Considering the set is already built in a remote area where the jungle is there and the weather is real I seriously doubt that will be a problem.

    I don't know if you've read The Walking Dead, but that's pretty much how it is. There are parts with tons of zombies, but then there are parts with few zombies and it's character development. I haven't read TWD since issue 60-something, so that may have changed.
