I know NOTHING about this show, but based on your Life on Mars comment (and the list), it makes me think this is another copy of a good BBC show, that I can't remember the name of.... Primeval.. I think...

-Alamar

Primeval was better, or at least Season 1-2 were solid (haven't seen the later stuff).

But they were different. Terra Nova more-or-less takes place 100% in the past; they time travel there to a (supposed) alternate timeline since their world is borked. So they have lotteries for some / and pick necessary people for others, to send back so humanity can thrive on "green" tech.

With the exception of Dinos and the final head-scratching scene of the show... there's very little similarities between them.

Terra Nova was actually more of a Earth 2 vibe but without all of the walking; surviving in the wilderness with weird stuff going on. With a little Avatar stuff thrown in: regular-Earth eventually decides it wants to strip-mine the Eden-like planet but the leader of Terra Nova wants to preserve it.

In a role-reversal, the guy who played the "Evil" General in "Avatar" now plays the "Save the Trees" guy in Terra Nova.
