Storyline

They were the ultimate fighters -- prehistoric beasts who walked the earth millions of years ago. With cunning and strategy, they hunted their prey -- transforming the prehistoric world into a battlefield. Today, archaeologists are uncovering these battlefields -- and are gaining startling new insight into how quick thinking, maneuverability, and striking at the exact moment separated the weak from the strong. Blow by blow, each episode will dissect these battles, uncovering a predatory world far more calculated and complex than we originally thought. Written by Official Site

Goofs

The show constantly depicted carnivorous dinosaurs with pronated hands (with their palms facing down or back). These animal's were unable to twist their hands this way. Fossil evidence shows they constantly held them with the palms facing inward. To turn their palms downward, they would have had to twist their whole arms. See more »

The TV show format time forgot
18 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Back in the mists of time there lived a type of television show that looks positively prehistoric to the modern audience. These shows represented animals as being like people. "Oh there goes Mr Beaver off to work at his dam, and here comes Mrs Beaver to make sure he hasn't forgotten his lunch."

This show is like those old dinosaurs. One dinosaur killing a female dinosaur is described as a "crime" and "domestic incident", for goodness sake! There's a lot of talk of crime scenes, murder and the like almost as though the producers would rather have been turning out a documentary about strangled hookers or something rather than dinosaurs.

You get a few scientists presenting their latest theories as solid fact whereas they are often conjecture or simply the most fashionable theory of the moment. There's plenty that isn't known about dinosaurs but the show doesn't give that impression at all. Everything is repeated again and again and I don't just mean in the way all shows do these days because of the advert breaks. No you'll have to hear the same information repeated over and over again as though they assume you are thick or they just didn't have enough material to fill the running time.

This is about as poor and tacky as the title suggests, but the CGI at least looks OK. Since this show has no real interest in dinosaurs beyond them being "cool at fighting" it's hardly a surprise that many of the dinosaurs featured have no association with the Jurassic period whatsoever. This could have been solved by calling it "dinosaur fight club" or something but they know most viewers will only care about seeing some fighting monsters. One final moan, if you are going to have an episode where the word Madagascar is said about once every two minutes it might be a good idea to check the host can actually pronounce it before filming starts because there's no place called Maddy Gas Car.
