    I love the whole concept of this show, but there are a few things that the writers should have explained better.



    For example, why do the greedy corporate gangsters want to remain in their time (with a polluted Earth and an environment that has been raped to death by mankind)? Why bother mining minerals from the past to take to a dead world? You would think they would want to sell black market tickets to the past instead. They can take control of the portal, and then use it to send technology and workers there to set up their own city in the past, and then sell tickets for people to go there.



    As for the Badlands mystery, with the 18th century ship fragment...a few thoughts come to mind. First of all, you can rule out the possibility that they are actually in a future where mankind has long been extinct, and somehow the Earth started all over again with the Dinosaurs, etc. Remember at the start of the series when they look at the moon and they mention that it was much closer to Earth in the past (which is actually true BTW). If they were indeed in the future, the Moon would be even further away rather than closer. Also, the placement of the stars can be used to measure a time reference...so we can 100% believe that they are indeed millions of years in the past.



    Now getting back to that 18th century ship...I think that either:

    1. the portal may have once been opened from the 18th century, but only from an Ocean location. This would greatly reduce the chances of large numbers of humans visiting since it would be difficult to find the portal in the middle of an Ocean back in the 1800's. This would explain why there was no evidence of humans being there already (the few that made it with their ships would not have survived long without modern weopons to kill predators). Or...



    2. The portal in the Badlands is somehow linked to the Bermuda Triangle. Maybe it appears randomly in the Bermuda Triangle (random in both location and year perhaps). If the bad soldiers believed that a portal exist to take them back to the 18th century...then they can go back to the 18th century and rule the world with their superior technology and weopons. For people like them, that would be preferable to staying in Dino land.



    Or mayybe I'm thinking too much into this.moreless

    Resistance was a perfect episode and 1st season finale episode of Terra Nova. I really enjoyed watching this second half of the two part story and it was amazing. The characters were driven to extremes and had so much development. It was really sad to see Washington literally take one for the team. Jim was just awesome all around and I was amazed at Elizabeth Shannon's quick thinking and daring moves to save her family. Taylor and Lucas have it out more and Skye was awesome as well. I can't list all the reasons this episode was awesome, but for sure when Jim travels to 2149 and the part where they open the container he was in, what a grand surprise! The episode ended in a way that leaves plenty of options for the future, but if they did decide not to renew the show I would be satisfied with the ending and just call this a mini series, perhaps Dinotopia: Another Time and Place, haha. I look forward to another season!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • thoughts of the future

    i thought the series has been awesome so far and really hope it continues. as far as the last episode i fore see a couple of ideas of what is in the works for the badlands to explain the piece of the ship. First idea is it could be the wormhole is unstable, and has been jumping around from time line to time line. The other is that the wormhole didn't take them back to the past but to the future ... long after man has killed themselves off. As i write this it also makes me consider the Bermuda triangle, with the mystery of how things just seem to disappear there..who knows maybe the things that vanish there pop up when ever Terra Nova. just some ideas to discuss , and is more free thought then anything else.moreless
