Ok

I didn't like how they marginalized the other show and repeated a lot of the same themes and stuff. That being said New creatures , New stories. Not bad.

Watch the British series instead
Verified purchase
I love the British Primeval which is one of my all time favorite shows. This remake is not nearly as good. I never really cared much for the characters, except for the male lead. This is not a family friendly series either, as there is more gore and more emphasis on physical relationshjps.

Not as good as the British version but watchable
Verified purchase
This series does seem to lack the energy of the British version but anyone who liked that version will probably enjoy this one. The only problem I had with it is that it exists in a vacuum. After all, with dinosaurs running down the highway in the original, keeping anomolies a secret seems moot. And since the ARC was a government program, why wouldn't there be a similar program in this series? It was nice to see Connor bookend it though!

Canadian retread but ok
Verified purchase
I was a fan of Primeval on BBCA, but was disappointed when BBC dropped the show following a major cliffhanger. The new version is OK. There is no question it's "Monster of the Week" for the time being but maybe the Canadian producers can liven that up. Good opportunity to rescue that dude left trapped with the hominids in prehistory. I wil give it a season but there is not much point in watching virtual reruns with old Syfy and reliable Vancouver central casting actors.

needs improvement
Verified purchase
The characters have promise but the main guy just jumps into the chase...no gun (oh a small pistol) no electronics, or other devices...what exactly does he think he's going to do when he meets the dinosaurs...so he chases ...stalks...and when he finds what he has been looking for he's got nothing so he just runs. He seems like he has a Tony Stark kind of potential but he needs to bring something to the game except his willingness to run after things. The team has not come together in a cohesive sort of story line. They definitely should bring the guy in from the British series who they have teased us with in as a regular. The Executive Producer was the director from SG1 and Atlantis and I love all his commentaries on the DVD's of those shows so I know he is a great story teller and an enthusiastic syfy fan. So hopefully he can grow this show. As a syfy fan, and a fan of the British show I will hang with this awhile and hope that the characters and story deepen. As SG1 and Supernatural have successfully shown..It's about the characters!!! because chasing the dino of week gets old real fast.

This should be better
Verified purchase
Having been a huge fan of the original Primeval series, I can't help but be disappointed by this pallid sequel. I will stop short of saying it's bad, but it certainly isn't good. "Uninteresting" is an apt word. A few good casting choices, more bad ones. The dialogue drags terribly: a conversation that should be dispatched in five energetic sentences goes on for three minutes while the viewer loses interest and forgets what the characters were discussing in the first place. Cinematography - what's that? I count four angles, all predictable, with the favorite being neck-up close shots of faces the director obviously thinks (erroneously) are gorgeous enough that the viewer will forgive bad acting and humdrum dialogue just to stare at starry eyes, lip gloss, and five o'clock shadow. The worst fault is direction, which makes adequate and sometimes really gifted actors appear wooden, two-dimensional, and boring. Actors come and go with no more motivation, apparently, than showing off some well-modeled biceps or a perky derriere. Even the dinosaurs - who provide the raison d'etre for the whole series, right? - seem like flashes of action diverting attention from what the director obviously thinks is the main point of the story: post-adolescent social interaction. I don't think I can stand another season of this ennui. Maybe if the producers wise up and hire directors who can really - direct. . .

It's a good start.

It's a good start but the competition is stiff. The BBC version of Primeval was hugely popular and will be hard to beat.
