Default Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is nearing.

As someone who's been obsessed with dinosaurs since he was two years old; as someone whose first movie experience memory was Jurassic Park on TV; as someone who went to theatre to see each subsequent sequel - or any dinosaur movie at all; as someone who had We're Back! dinosaur stickers on his bed and dinosaur wallpaper, you'd think that a Jurassic Park television series would be one of the greatest things to see come to life.
...
And yet, here we are. The trailer is so clearly geared towards strengthening the prescription of those nostalgia goggles even further by showcasing us elements and beats that we've already seen five times before over the past 25+ years.

And to echo a sentiment made by our resident physician, The Doctor, am I really supposed to believe that this TV-G (or heck, PG at worst) action/adventure television series will have any danger beyond "everyone escapes unscathed, but the question is just close is it going to be?"?

I'll check it out, of course, but I don't have high hopes for this series being anything than filler until Jurassic World: Dominion comes out/a vehicle for us grown-@$$ man-children to sit back and fondly reminisce as the series hits us over the head with references and nods to the films.
