    Lol no I'm so done with this show. I usually love crystal lowe's movies and shows but this one was just plain bad like I can't even. Very slow to start with boring. Bad acting, etc

    Frankly, any critic giving this show a ridiculously low score, or likening this show to other Syfy original movies such as "Mothman" or "Mega Piranha" is intellectually dishonest; however, I will admit that the show definitely had a slow and generally disappointing start. That said, the second half of the series offered generally good computer graphics (as opposed to most Syfy movies which seem to shoot for the most unrealistic dinosaurs possible), decent acting, and a somewhat engaging story-line (if you can get past the glaring holes in the time-space continuum story plot). I, at the very least, appreciate Syfy's apparent attempt to create a new dinosaur drama. While the show was not perfect, at least it seemed like a good-faith effort at creating something entertaining and in that regard, they succeeded, as the show was, at times, generally entertaining. In that regard, I am saddened that like other shows, (*ahem* Terra Nova what's in the badlands?!?!?!) I will likely not receive the closure that I desire. C'est la vie! Expand

    Oh dear, another decent show that didn't make it across the pond so swimmingly. Shades of Being Human and Top Gear so sadly and badly misinterpreted by their U.S production teams. One of the original UK cast made a brief appearance in the first episode which raised my hopes a little but he soon vanished and the moment was lost. At least we have the re-imagining of the brilliant House of Cards but then again Kevin Spacey is almost a Brit these days. Expand

    It had a slow pilot, but it got better. it doesn't have much story, but the dinosaur action scenes make this show at least worth watching. It's interesting, but I don't think it will go very far.

    There's no real chemistry among the cast--or much of a plot.

    Ultimately, both series [Sinbad and Primeval: New World] are the TV equivalent of summer beach reading: popcorn fun while they last, but don't expect a lasting impression.

    The CGI dinosaur renderings vary in quality, but the plot is fairly predictable from the get-go.
