Have you seen Fox's Terra Nova? It's a show about a family that travels back in time to prehistoric Earth through a fracture in time to save the human race. Steven Spielberg is an executive producer, and there's special effects and dinosaurs and sh*t, so it could have been something neat. But, it's not. It's terrible. Still, it's watchable in that kind of train-wrecky way. Oh, and there's this.

Character Commander Nathaniel Taylor is Solid Snake to me. Metal Gear Solid's Old Snake, to be precise. I can't un-see it, and I can't stop giggling every time he makes an appearance. The clothes, the hair, everything. He's like an Old Snake that exfoliates and uses moisturizers. 

It's a bit of a stretch, but once you think of the rebellious, headstrong character Mira as Resident Evil 5's Sheva, you can't un-see. Of course, actress Christine Adams is lovely and has better hair, and Sheva was just sort of weird looking and wore too much jewelry (sorry, Capcom), so it's not a perfect match. But, in some episodes, Mira is wearing Sheva's clothes, shooting guns, and running from monsters. And I laugh.

I will continue watching this turd of a show to see how Old Snake and Sheva get along. Hit the jump to see some good examples of what I'm talking about.
