Show was so boring tonight! I love Maddy's romance with the officer guy though. Can't stand watching the bartender or Josh.
Next week looks better with Kira and Tyler fighting together.
OK, finally beginning to get some idea what is going on with the Sixers and the exiled son. Frankly I can see why the people of the future might want some help from the people of the past....after all they are sending a fair amount of stuff and people to the past, not surprising that they think of it as a colony and want the colony to help the motherland in some way. Of course we know what always happens eventually with colonies.... And is already happening on Terra Nova. I think the commander is underestimating his people...they'd probably all react like he is. If the future could get stuff from the past what's to stop them from sending troops on the next pilgramage to force the colonists to do what the future wants. Of course many probably do have relatives in the future still, that they'd want to help, but I think they'd still rather it be a one way bridge.
Of course maybe going to solar power in the future would clean up some of that smog in the future...surely they must be running out of fossil fuel if there are that many people... Unless they want to mine the dinosaur age planet not sure what they want from it...maybe drugs,etc. And don't I recall that the fossil fuel was mostly formed from the decayed remains of the period the dinosaurs lived in... so maybe there's no fuel to mine yet?
Anyway, from the exposition we heard today I guess it isn't that I missed what was happening due to missing shows, it's that it hadn't been explained yet.
One thing I was noticing at the end of the festival scene, being annoyed by the commander's cornpone Southern accent, is that there are not a lot of darker looking people in Terra Nova. Some South Asians, but not a lot of people of African descent, or even East Asian....certainly not reflective of the world population as we know it today. That's aside from the leader of the Sixers of course. What country is the other end of the tunnel supposed to be located in?

More questions (sorry): How come the relatively new family is so important? Dad's the "chief of police," Mom's the head Doctor, oldest daughter got to MC the play, youngest daughter had the lead role. Guess the son is the blacksheep of the family or is he the head "bad boy" now?
How come when a bunch of people from the future (our future) go back in time they lose all desire for modern music and dance? In the last episode they had a celebration that seemed to include jigs, square dancing and mid-18th century music. No hip hop? No jazz? No rock? No metal? No dirty dancing?
Why do they eat apples on a stick?
