Gustafson's sloppy appearance and lack of military haircut might be a deliberate mistake to suggest character, but he would never mispronounce his rank. He and the other characters all employ the American pronunciation of "lootenant" but the RCAF, like all Canadian Forces branches, pronounce it "leftenant." See more »
Yikes. Not much else to say about this. Having seen the main character in Eureka I decided to give it a shot as he did a pretty good job in his previous works.
The premise of the show is that these random anomalies keep showing up around the city that can traverse time. Specifically to the Jurassic era. The anomalies can take you to that point in time or in worse cases, bringing dinosaurs to our time. It sounds like a decent basis for a show no doubt.
The real issue here is that past this, there is no real substance to the show. The writing is lifeless, the creativity we've seen in shows like Star Trek, Stargate and Eureka are non-existent. It's like each episode the entire dialogue is meant to build up an epic action scene... which in itself is shallow, not mentioning that the action scenes are bland and not at all epic.
I tend to be open-minded with shows, and can enjoy shows rated in the 7s as much as the ones in the 9s. This is seriously unwatchable though. Really, screw this. I'm going to watch some Stargate.
