I haven't seen any Terra Nova, at all, yet. I say "yet," with the assumption that I might never get around to it at all, of course. I haven't heard much buzz about it, and that's usually a bad thing. People talk about The Walking Dead and Homeland and Dexter and Sons of Anarchy on the messageboards that I frequent, but I haven't heard a peep about Terra Nova. That's a bad sign. It hasn't ever had more than 10 million viewers for any episode, which is kind of shitty when you have probably one of the larger budgets of any hour-long drama on television.
Anyway, it's the season finale of Terra Nova, which is as good a time as any to ask: do you care about this show? Is it something you watch week in and week out? Do you hope it'll be back next season, or do you not care so much?

ESPN 5/8: It's the Steelers at the 49ers in a battle of 10-3 teams. Will an alleged rapist win a football game? We'll find out as Roman Polanski suits up for the Steelers!
NBC 8 PM: "Couples face stunts that include being catapulted off a building towards a cargo net and transferring snakes off their partners with their mouths." Snakes...why'd it have to be transferring snakes off their partners with their mouths?
FOX 8 PM: "Lucas, Mira and the mysterious Phoenix group try to pillage the past; Taylor and Jim team up to take a stand; a decision permanently changes life in Terra Nova." The two-hour season finale comes at last! I can't tell if it's good or bad that this has only had 13 episodes in its first season. It has not done spectacularly in the ratings, never breaking above 10 million viewers, so you would think that if FOX was interested in giving it a vote of confidence, it would've given it a whole network season. I somehow doubt we'll see another season of it.
TNT 9 PM: "The Major Crimes Division investigates the hit-and-run murder of a girl on a bicycle; Brenda uncovers a scandal." I guess "the hit-and-run murder of a girl on a bicycle" is separate from "a scandal." Personally, I think it's pretty damn scandalous. Followed by Rizzoli & Isles at 10 PM.

NBC 8 PM: "A volleyball coach competes against 10 opponents in a trivia battle in hope of winning $1 million." As always, volleyball coaches are the one group of humans that everyone can root against. This is apparently going to be on every single day for like a week, so hope you like it!
