There are good things and bad things about television shows like The Walking Dead. A good thing is that it is truly an excellent television show. It's well done, well written, and has zombie violence. A bad thing is that it's too good. It makes watching shows like Terra Nova, which could, nay, should be better, an almost impossible task. The bad shows are bad and will always be bad so I harbor no expectations from them. Terra Nova, however, isn't bad and should be good. There's nothing worse than being meh. It also suffers from airing one night after The Walking Dead, which is usually still fresh in my mind.
Well, here it goes anyway:
"Now You See Me"
Meanwhile...Jim and older daughter's boyfriend are working on The Case of the Terra Nova Traitor. They notice someone outside the colony flashing a light and correctly assume someone in the colony will be flashing right back at them. They run off to follow the flashing light and almost catch Idiot boy's female friend, Skye. Uhhhh, she's the traitor? I guess she did warn Idiot Boy an awful lot about getting mixed up with the Sixers. Skye evades them but gets cut in the process leaving behind a drop of blood in a cup of liquid. Jim spots this and decides he's gonna pressure his wife (the colony doctor) and/or science guy to run a DNA test on it because they have nothing better to do. Skye is desperate to get out of the colony and needs an excuse since Commander Badass has set a new rule that you have to have a damn good reason to leave. Joining Idiot Boy's work detail seems like a good choice so she heads out with them and quickly gives them the slip. We next see her at the Sixer camp delivering something to Mira's second in command dude. Turns out, Skye is cooperating to save her mom (isn't she dead?) and get her the medication she needs in exchange for colony intel. Jim's getting closer to figuring out she's the traitor even though she smashed the DNA sample (uh, how did she know what the sample was for?) before it spit out the traitor's identity. Also, Jim's been the big man in charge while Commander Badass was on the hike with Mira. Jim didn't like being temporary commander and I'm starting to wonder if Badass is long for this world.
