I cannot deny this his quickly become one of my favourite new shows, its so unpredictable and I had goosebumps thru all of ep.

Mac steels the show for me as his character is very well performed, mostly well written, and given some evocative scenes that left quite an impression.

So unexpected , so full of twists and turns .

I highly recommend it and guarantee you will too if you watch more than one episode.

Now, however, I'm reviewing this refreshing, brilliantly suspenseful BBC Three thriller after episode 4 and I'm caught between a 9 and a 10.

Worth watching and let's hope there isn't an America version in the works.

Production values are high and the actors are compelling, though I get the sense they didn't have enough to work with in the script.

The early part of the season is much lighter, slower, and more like a teen drama than the second half of the series which is far more interesting, pacey and serious.

Great show , original and breathtaking .

As an adult male I have no desire to watch young teens having sex, or young boys pleasuring themselves - and there was definitely no plot-related reason to include such content in the show.

It varies from being twisty and unexpected to being dragged down by too much unneeded drama.

An original story with compelling subplots.

Idiotic plot movements that are entirely predictable.

Whilst Terra Nova boasts a massive budget and tons of CGI, its characters are weak, its plots are derivative and clichéd and all around is frankly uninteresting.
