    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.

    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.

    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.
