  • Summary: Primeval, a high-budget series, follows Professor Nick Cutter and his team as they investigate anomalies in time found in the Forest of Dean. An unfortunate side-effect of the anomalies is that dinosaurs are moving through them and into the present time, making the team's investigations that much more stressful. Cutter's wife also disappears while investigating the anomalies and he makes it his mission to find and save her.

    This series originally aired on ITV and begins on BBC America on August 9, 2008.

    I've come to agree that this is definitely a bit of a low point for the series. It had some of the best action sequences and original creature ideas in the whole show, but the writing is all over the place. Too much is left unexplained and it spent time on several subplots that did nothing to progress the story (such as the journalists, and Christine Johnson). Sarah Page is one of my favorite characters in the series, but she's sort of tossed aside in the last few episodes, and Danny Quinn loses his likeable spark and becomes egregiously more serious. I'd give the first seven episodes a 7-8 out of 10, but the last three definitely get a 6. The dialogue gets poorer and it overall feels like the writers have gotten lazy. There's still something to love every now and then, but they are, overall, disappointing. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Season 3 - Where rationality goes to die.

    If you've not seen so yet, Helen Cutter is now Completely Insane! and has desires to stop the anomalies by- killing mankind off so it can't make them. Yes, yes, I mean it's not like she couldn't search for a way of travelling to a time when the humans hadn't made the 'Predators' (DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THAT ANAL IDEA!) and to warn them that it's going to kill the entire species.
    Oh...how I wish one of those anomalies could open and send me back to a time before I'd seen this series. I'd be so much happier.
