Fox’s latest partnership with Steven Spielberg brings us a cross between Little House on the Prairie and Jurassic Park. A 21st century family volunteers to travel 85 million years into the past to escape the ravages of a dying Eartt, only to meet new challenges in an “unspoiled” world full of predators, unknown diseases, and human treachery. Cancelled after the first season, probably due to a shortage of dinosaurs.
