I am a huge fan of the original "Dinotopia" mini-series, so when this show premeared on Thanksgiving day, 2002, I was one of the few fans who watched this instead of the popular programs airing at the same time slot, including "Friends" and "Survivor." ABC basically doomed the series by putting it up against some of the highest rated shows, and so it was cancelled only 6 weeks into the season. If you only watched the 2 hour premiere and decided you didn't like the series based on this, than you should really give it another shot. The new cast takes a little getting used to, but I now prefer them to the mini-series cast. And the storylines get much better as the series gets going. Most of my favorite episodes are the ones that never aired. ABC made a big mistake. I think this show would have attracted viewers if they aired it on Monday nights instead of Thursdays. After watching all three discs, I give the series 5 stars for how good the actual programming. However, the special features are terrible. They are all about the mini-series and not the series. It's as if Hallmark put bonus features they dubbed not worthy of being on the mini-series' DVD on here, just so it looked like you where getting more for your money. Another gripe I have is that the series ends with a cliffhanger. I hope Hallmark plans to continue the show on the Hallmark channel, because finishing the series makes me really want to know how it all ends. I'd settle for another mini-series. I've just gotta know the ending!
