The future of Terra Nova

The pilot episode of the long-awaited Terra Nova debuted on Fox this past Monday night. The show is set in 2149, on a dying Earth threatened with extinction due to heavily polluted air and extreme overpopulation.

Fox recently blamed the delay of its long-awaited "Terra Nova" series on visual effects that "required more time to be realized." At least, that was the official explanation.
