Set your DVRs – The Terra Nova Series Premiere is this Monday, September 26 8/7c on FOX.
In 2149, Earth has become uninhabitable for humans with contaminated air and overpopulation. Scientists have discovered an alternate pre-historic Earth and decided that in order to save humanity, they will create communities in the past. The Shannon family is given the chance to join the Terra Nova settlement 85 million years in the past. Starring Jason O’Mara as Jim Shannon, a loving father and former cop and Elisabeth Shannon Shelley Conn as Jim’s wife and a talented doctor the two form a strong family with their children Josh (Landon Liboiron), Maddy (Naomi Scott), and Zoe (Alana Mansour) and are the heart of the show.
Well-cast with fantastic characters, the drama alone would make for a solid show. But adding heart-pounding suspense with dinosaurs and a mysterious rogue group of settlers, Terra Nova is one of the most exciting shows coming to television. The first episode is a 2-hour event, with enough beautiful imagery and special effects, that viewers will forget they’re watching a television show instead of a feature film.
This is a must-see show that will appeal to more than just science fiction fans. With solid characters, mystery, incredible adventure, and spectacular effects, I was certainly impressed with the pilot episode.

From Press Release: Grimm is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories – they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, “Grey’s Anatomy”) arrives, Nick’s life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors – and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell (“Prison Break”), Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star. Grimm is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland is the director.
