Who they are: Dubbed as the "Little House on the Prairie With Dinosaurs," "Terra Nova" is an eco-action-adventure series built around a family of five that travels back 85 million years to give humans a second chance at caring for Earth. Devoted dad Jim Shannon (Jason O'Mara) is at the head of the family along with his trauma-surgeon wife, Elisabeth (Shelley Conn). The couple's three kids, Josh (Landon Liboiron), 17, Maddy (Naomi Scott), 15, and Zoe (Alana Mansour), are along for the ride too. What the kids like: Time travel, dinosaurs and exploring the idyllic surroundings right along with the characters. What the parents can't get enough of: The mysteries of Terra Nova. Danger lurks within the Shannon's new home, yet it isn't just the wild terrain they need to be worried about.
