Tv Season Info

When mysterious discrepancies in Britain's time/space/continuum begin to occur, zoologist Nick Cutter and his band of assistants begin to investigate. However, unbeknownst to the team, prehistoric creatures have used the breakdown in time to set foot in the present day. Featuring state-of-the-art special effects, but grounded by a very human love story - "Primeval" is compelling viewing for the whole family.

Critic Reviews for Primeval: Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

It's a rollicking adventure with decent special effects and better stories and character development than, say, Sci Fi Channel's Eureka.

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.

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.

February 10, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Using scientific mumbo-jumbo as an excuse to do Jurassic Park Lite, Primeval stirs up a strange but mostly entertaining brew.

It definitely won't make you forget about Lost.
