Dinosaurs can stomp and giant spiders sting, and Stephen can look like Zac Efron's older brother, but if everyone on the screen is acting like it's all just an unfortunate situation to be dealt with, well, then, so will we.
This show could evolve into something more interesting than a guilty pleasure.
Using scientific mumbo-jumbo as an excuse to do Jurassic Park Lite, Primeval stirs up a strange but mostly entertaining brew.
Primeval mixes elements of Jurassic Park and Stargate, rarely taking itself seriously while also warning of the consequences of not confronting these threats to mankind.
If nothing else, this dinosaur-obsessed drama is a pleasing option in a TV landscape with too few non-Disney alternatives for families with kids in the 7 to 12 age range.
