Storyline

The dinosaurs didn't go completely extinct when the asteroids hit 65 million years ago. Today, every ten thousandth person in the country is a dinosaur, evolved to be human-sized, wearing sophisticated solid-light holographic disguises to maintain the facade, getting stoned off regular cooking herbs like basil, rosemary and tarragon, and living by their own shadow government's laws; any human who stumbles upon them is to be immediately executed. Two dino private investigators, velociraptor Vincent Rubio and triceratops Ernie Watson, are hired by one of Ernie's old girlfriends to find out why her younger brother committed suicide, and discover a dino cult called Voice Of Progress that wants dinokind to come out of the closet and reclaim the planet.

Nobody wants to grow up to be a private investigator?
6 December 2004 | by bob-1188See all my reviews

I really have to disagree with the first line of the movie, as, I wanted to grow up and be a private investigator, and still do.

Even though I love sci-fi and detective stories, I'm getting ever so tired of movies that start at the end and then drop back a week to show you how they could have ever gotten to this point. This theme is a bit overdone, somebody think of some new twist on this, please.

As is required by the Film Actors Guild, there is indeed a Baldwin in the movie, so F.A.G. will fully support this TV movie. There are a few unexpected turns, but few really original thoughts to the plot, other than the basis of the movie itself.

Rumour has it that this will be a series next season, and we need more good scifi, as it's running pretty thin out there. Here's hopin.
