DVD Reviews - Primeval

When strange anomalies in time start to appear all over England, Professor Cutter and his team have to help track down and capture all sorts of dangerous prehistoric creatures from Earth's distant past.

There are only 2 ways I know off to watch this movie. Either buy the Season 1 DVD from www.amazon.co.uk or watch it online at www.tv-links.co.uk I did the latter and loved it.

First off this the show's summary does not do it justice. The premise is that weird portals are opening up randomly in England, they are only temporary portals so they do disappear. But if you go through the portals you get transported to another time. Now it has yet to be proven that the portal links only to the past and in episode 6 its hinted that the portal also links to the future. Perhaps even an alternate reality. The bottom line is that where the portals lead to, dinosaurs exist, bugs of gigantic natures live and creatures that we've never encountered before spawn. The Professor leads a team to investigate and try to find out where and when these portals will appear and if it can be stopped all the whole the British Government (Home Office) is trying to hush everything up as much as possible and causing the Professor a lot of grief.

One thing to note, there will be a season 2 as BBC has picked up the series, But season 1 is only 6 episodes long, must be a British thing, American TV seasons tend to be 22-24 episodes long. Still with only 6 episodes, each episode is jam packed with action and character development which advance the main storyline, there are no filler episodes.

I would rate this as better than Lost but not as good as Heroes. Definitely worth a watch.

I rate it a 4/5
