This week, Terra Nova was laid siege by flock of murderous and horny dinosaur bats (terrasaurs, as dinosaurs on Terra Nova are called). The terrasaurs were migrating to Terra Nova, which was built over their old spawning ground. Also, we learn a little bit more about how people are recruited for Pilgrimage to Terra Nova, and the d-bag teenage son wants a guitar.
I Tweeted as I watched Terra Nova:
BackoftheHead John Orquiola #TerraNova should have @andrewzimmern teach the kids survival training in the woods. Ew? Maggots are delicious! So are dinosaur testicles!
BackoftheHead John Orquiola The smart daughter as an iPad with the corners cut off like on Battlestar Galactica. Is that the iPad 150? Is there Internet on #TerraNova?
BackoftheHead John Orquiola "It's a small world!" "Well, yeah, and 85 million years!" Tee hee hee hee! I'm gonna fucking kill you all. #TerraNova
BackoftheHead John Orquiola #TerraNova really is The Jetsons. How's George gonna make sure Judy wears her retainer and Elroy does his homework without Rosie the Robot?
BackoftheHead John Orquiola "It's like we're dealing with a predator no one's ever seen before!" #TerraNova is in the ancient past. 99.9% are things never seen before!
BackoftheHead John Orquiola This week on #TerraNova, the husband and wife can't have sex because DINOSAUR SOUNDS keep interrupting them. No, seriously.
BackoftheHead John Orquiola We learn the doctor wife was requested for #TerraNova recruitment by the doctor who wants to bone her. "Oh crap! Her husband came too!"
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Hey! The Boston Red Sox are still around in 2149. Let me guess: It's been 142 years since we last won a World Series? #TerraNova
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Oh shit. The terrasaurs are migrating. #TerraNova is in their way. Steal from The Simpsons, pack up the whole town and move it 5 miles away.
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Flying terrasaurs attacking #TerraNova is reminiscent of@Piranha3D, except not nearly as sexy or fun. Needs @rileysteele@IAMKellyBrooke.
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Outstanding! The plan: Use terrasaur pheromones to lead them to a new breeding ground, where they can get it on far away from #TerraNova.
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Terrasaur sexytime somewhere else! #TerraNova
BackoftheHead John Orquiola "Commander's Log: Today I drove a truck through the jungle with a million horny terrasaur bats chasing me. Just another day on #TerraNova."
BackoftheHead John Orquiola Grateful there's a successor to V as the goofy sci-fi show I mock on Twitter. I dream of a crossover. "We are of peace, always, #TerraNova."

The tween lit craze is ripe for the mocking and this episode did it very well. I loved Homer getting his crew together, Ocean's 11-style. Neil Gaiman coming in and doing odd jobs for everyone was great. This episode ruled it for the heist.
