    So, the main characters are a family of four, out of all of the humans that went back? Or did just the four go back in time to establish a colony? If the former, was it all of humanity or just a subset? Did they fight dinosaurs? Experience plague or famine? Agree on a political system?

  • I'm at a loss why this has attracted downvotes and close votes. It's very answerable and I challenge any of the close-voters to identify another show with a time traveling family who go to a colony in the age of the dinosaurs where the dad is a cop.

    @Gallifreyan - I think the problem with this question was that it just needed a bit of spit and polish to remove the formatting problems and a better title. You could easily have added those rather than clicking the close button.

    @Otis - Agreed, but I think this should be kept and that should be the dupe. This has a better answer.

Could this be Terra Nova?

The father is a cop and the show features a family traveling in time to an alternate Earth with dinosaurs.

    Terra Nova was my first thought when I saw the question title; as expected someone already answered it. :)
