    the problem is should have been nothing like Lost.
    it didn't need an over-arcing mystery. It should have been an adventure show of humans struggling to survive 85 million years ago in a time that they knew nothing about.

    What killed it for me was the episode with the "spider song" then towards the end I got interested in the show again... But all those cute fluffy moments really made me ill. Ditch those, more drama and action and they might not have been canned.

    The question is, can another network afford the show, and if not, could the show afford a smaller budget if a network is willing?

    I heard that the show was terribly expensive for a first season...

    My wife and I really enjoyed Season 1. It is a real shame it won't get a second season. Another one bites the dust.

    How exactly is SciFi not dying? Are there any interesting, inspiring, tv-shows either planned or airing? Most shows sold as SciFi are going to be about some esoteric vampire-esque between-heaven-and-hell nonsense. Terra Nova is the only one left, and it's already very soft and feminine SciFi. Granted "interesting" and "inspiring" are subjective terms, but nobody can deny that shows like Star Trek and Stargate SG-1 have shaped the world as we know it today, by inspiring many young men to go into science. I don't see this happening for the future with the current shows running.

    Actually yeah when you put it that way I agree.

    Maybe TPTB want a nice world where the people are sheep and don't aspire to anything. Consumerism rules the day and guess what we became the real life Idiocracy

    you could barely call the show sci-fi it had so few sci-fi elements in it.

    portal, ok.
    85 million years ago, maybe. after all it's just a time, and still on earth.
    dinosaurs. wait, were there dinosaurs in this show?

    it was an angsty family drama with poor writing, and stupid kid-ish characters.

    This is what put me right off. As soon as I realised I desperately wanted the dinosaurs to eat the annoying brats I knew this wasn't for me.

    I like how people give summary judgements when it's obvious that they've only watched the first few episodes...
