TERRA NOVA: “Proof” – RECAP
“Proof” did a good job of presenting an episode that was more or less driven by the younger cast members. Aside from Taylor’s tracking of Curran, Maddy and Josh are the stars of this hour, with one tackling a case of identity fraud while the other brings their journey to its climax. The two are thankfully separated from their parents for a good portion of the episode; instead they interact with the supporting cast, such as Malcolm and Boylan. It was a positive step toward not relying on the Shannon’s being a family to tell cohesive and compelling stories.
I enjoyed Maddy’s investigation of Ken Horton, even though it turned in to a watered down version of something you’d see on some police procedural. I was mainly intrigued by the work the Horton imposter was doing, discovering new species and how they could improve life in Terra Nova. I would love to see more of that. Unfortunately, Horton is caught, which didn’t quite jive for me. Maddy was basically right when she said Terra Nova is about second chances. I’m sure if he confessed to Taylor who he is and what he did, Horton would be forgiven. Just look at the work he’s done, finding a beetle that eats mold so they can harvest apples. He more than made up for his past discretion (murder). A different ending would have been nice, but that would have been too out of the box for Terra Nova’s liking.
I’m a little surprised there’s no security for the medical supplies beyond needing an access card. Perhaps they should invest in an alarm system of some kind. Aside from needing to use a sonic gun and injuring himself, Josh manages to steal medicine for the Sixers with ease, just so he can be with his girlfriend on the next pilgrimage. Things went pretty predictably, which isn’t a bad thing. Josh confessing was a no brainer. He was never entirely convinced what he was doing was right, but his emotions were enough to push him through it. Now Taylor knows Boylan has been dealing with the Sixers, and then the freaking show doesn’t even acknowledge any repercussions for him!? Is he going to be thrown in jail? Banished? How can something so important not be touched on? That drove me crazy.
Speaking of Boylan, is he the spy Taylor’s been looking for, or is he just a guy looking to profit from his trading? It’s never been right out said he was the spy, and the way Taylor had Curran go infiltrate the Sixers in search of said spy had me second guessing Boylan. Why would the show put Curran in that position only to have the spy be caught in the same episode? I guess there’s someone else in Terra Nova. I’ve had my suspicions of Malcolm, but that could just be because of his weasely appearance. I look forward to Curran’s mission and hope it plays a big part in the next few episodes. It would be a dream come true if the show could focus on the Sixers versus Terra Nova entirely. I’ve always said that is where the meat of the series is. Having Maddy play detective is fun, but not as gripping as prehistoric war.
One final thing: how bad was the CGI for that swordfish? Yikes.
