Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous - Camp Cretaceous

The first episode of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous introduces us to Darius Bowman (Paul-Mikél Williams) and five other teens who become the initial guests of the new Camp Cretaceous attraction in Jurassic World. The parents, willing to send their kids unsupervised to a dinosaur murder park, are nowhere to be found. Bad decisions appear to be genetic, as it takes less than a single episode for Darius to get himself and two walking cliches in the douchey rich kid (Ryan Potter) and the perky social influencer (Jenna Ortega) into serious trouble. Much of the early scenes are in awkward first-person perspective as they focus on Darius' attempting to win a ticket to the camp by being the first to beat a video game. Thankfully the view ends once Darius wins his ticket so he can get into real trouble half a world away.
