    Well, there were some interesting twists in this episode...from a two-face scientist to a son that actually grew some morals. Of course, I started guessing that Horton was a fake when things weren't adding up with him. I'm glad that Josh can forward. I was wondering if Boylin was the "mole"...but I think he's just someone who gets with whoever he has to in order to make things better for himself.

    Pretty good ep. It was evident the guy was a fake the minute he was brought into question as I'd guess lots of people want to go to Terra Nova but can't. I'm still sticking with the show in hopes it gets more interesting on the mystery side of things as I'm sure the family drama stuff is not going away anytime soon. I'd almost rather not see the dinos as their integration in the show is cringe worthy like Taylor and the komodo dragon (CGI was nice on this one though) and especially hooking a giant marlin while perched on a cliff side. Who goes fishing off the side of a cliff?
    IMO always implied.

    People do it all the time on Oahu. It is a very productive method for Ulua. That spot likely has few predators and access to deep water. It wouldn't be much fun to surf fish with beasties in the water and foraging the beach.

    I was thinking about something. If Terra Nova has a purpose other then what the people think it is and there are people in the future that want things to change with it then why are there only people from the 6th pilgrimage that are against Taylor. You would think that maybe there could be a mole in TN that came before the 6th, and people that have come after the 6th. And also looking at this with a strategic mind set, who has only one mole? If you are trying to spy on someone in a very valuable situation then you are going to have multiple moles, most if not all of which do not know about each other. This is the most effective way to get in-tell on an adversary that you wish to control. You also would want one if not more of those moles in the inner circle of your adversary. I would not be surprised is Taylor's right hand man (Lt. Washington) or the head of the science division (Malcolm) are in-line with the Sixers.
    Science fiction is an existential metaphor that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said, "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if are to be saved at all."

    Ah okay for smaller fish, in real life, I guess but I still thought it was a ridiculous scene considering they were going to have to cut the line on the marlin. There are beasties everywhere but apparently they only conveniently appear when the plot calls for them. I can't believe how much wandering off these people do....

    It's actually a bit too far fetch to send a whole group like that in just one pilgrimage. Someone should have noticed that. Where they all lottery winners? I don't think a "normal" common people would know how to handle weapons, have jungle warfare training. There should have been a patter about that. If they could infiltrate a whole group why not simple take Taylor out even before sending him?

    1. Jim and Taylor fishing - didn't think they were 'that' tight yet!

    2. Hiring whatisname as a spy - not so bad!

    3. Josh...at least you realised you were an idiot.

    4. Horton - way too blatent.

    Really good episode. I enjoyed watching it again the other day, when my wife finally got around to watching it.

    Those fish push 200 pounds. In the Carolinas they pull in huge tiger sharks off piers. The fishing spot probably has more to do with few carnivores plus easy casting to deep water.
