Terra Nova - 6 Ways to Save the Series

James Hibberd posted an incredibly accurate list of items that need fixing if Terra Nova is renewed...

Terra Nova might still get saved from extinction. No decision has been made on picking up the ambitious dino drama, but Fox met with the show’s studio chiefs last week to talk about potentially giving the series a second round. Below, we have our six ideas for how the show can best earn a pickup.

Terra Nova has been a self starter in the ratings on Mondays and its family friendly nature makes it an easy pitch to advertisers. Yet the show’s overall adult demo ratings have disappointed, and sources say the network has been creatively unsatisfied with the show, as well. But in an odd way, some of Terra Nova‘s problems have worked in its favor — everybody involved with the project agrees there’s room for improvement and, therefore, possible ratings growth.

The network’s verdict on whether to renew the show is expected by mid January since Terra Nova‘s extensive use of special effects require the production to get back in the writers room soon if they’re going to stay on schedule to map out stories in time for fall. If renewed, expect Fox’s order will be along the lines of the first season’s 13 episodes, not a full 22 like most other shows.

So far, the discussion has focused on ways to make the show better, and the compelling two-hour finale was a great step in the right direction. Here’s our six suggestions for making Terra Nova a must-watch show for season two:
1. Age Up
2. Make Sense
3. Fear and Wonder
4. Deepen the Characters
5. Less CGI, Better CGI
6. Focus on Your Strength: Jason O'Mara

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
