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)

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.

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.

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

It definitely won't make you forget about Lost.

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