    Primeval has to be my favourite sci-fi TV show of all time. It has funny relatable characters, awesome creatures, a plot that makes sense and an awesome cast. 10 OUT OF 10!!!!

    Though it’s kid-friendly, there are things for adults to enjoy. Henshall is a quietly appealing actor, the pace is crackling and the dialogue has its share of witty asides.
  2. Dinosaurs are certainly alive and well in Primeval, a crackling-good new BBC America sci-fi series thriller that's packed with vivid CGI prehistoric predators galore and a story line that's almost plausible.

    With its campy humor, poignant drama and potent scares, Primeval will appeal equally to adults and children.
