So I watched the premier of Terra Nova last night and I was really impressed. The show seems like it has a lot of potential. If you are in the states you should watch it, if you aren't you should use a proxy server to watch it :D(not sure how geo locking works outside the US so that might not be necessary, I just know I have to use a British proxy server when I want to watch new eps of Top Gear.)

According to Wikipedia, Sky 1 will be syndicating the show in the UK. The premise sounds interesting, I'll see if I can catch the repeats since Doctor Who is almost over - I could use another good time travel show. :)

Hoping to watch this tonight.

I don't think it's time travel as such, more the main location isn't in the here and now.

Yeah it starts out in 2149(I think) and they have a one way time travel machine so they go back in time 85 million years and the human race it trying to build a new civilization in the past(they go into this a lot more but I don't wanna spoil anything). But yeah its got time travel but they just cant go anywhere but 85 million years in the past and they can't come back.

Sounds a lot like the premise for 'The Many Coloured Land' by Julian May.

The youth of today. . .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Many-Colored_Land

Set just after Earth has been contacted by the Galactic Milieu, and humans are starting to manifest with psi powers. The world become very complicated.

A French scientist find that due to a very odd feature he can form a time link to the Pliocene era. But it's one way only.
People start to come to him to go back and live a simpler live.

As the main cast arrive they find that far from an empty world, at the time of the Pliocene the Earth has a small number of aliens in residence.
The Tanu have come to Earth from their own galaxy having been exiled because they won't abandon their battle culture...

It has a beautifully rich cast and amazing settings.

I'd recommend it.

Ahh, well, that's what I get for relying on a couple of sentences in Wikipedia as a source of information! Still sounds like it might be worth watching, thanks for the recommendation.

Just watched it.

Interesting.
I thought they might have a problems with the single plot device of just being 85 million years back. But they've thrown in a few possibly interesting twists.
