In the US, ABC cancelled Dinotopia: The Series on 17 December 2002 after only airing 6 episodes, leaving 7 episodes unaired. All 13 original episodes were released on DVD in January 2004. Complete series aired in Europe in the summer 2003. See more »
While this series was not as visually pleasing as the miniseries, it created characters who were deeper, and a plot line that fully captures viewers attention for all 13 episodes. The darker side of Dinotopia comes out in a way that helps the viewer to connect even more to the story. All the actors and actresses were great, and while the dialogue lacked in some parts, the realism of the characters did not. By the end of the series you find that you have laughed and cried with the characters, and found the occasion to yell at them on various occasions. In all the series was great, both for a lover of the dinotopian story lines, and for the first time viewer. A diffenent 8 out of 10.
