Good creatures and twisted story but not "anomalyc" enough.
4 May 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The creatures were quite scary and it actually felt like if they were part of the real settings. It was a good surprise considering all scenes occurred in day light. This episode was also heavy on action and in fact they quickly bored me because I'm more into character development, ambiance… But I have to admit that some of them were well done and the characters really seemed in danger. However I hope the writers won't use the same trick over and over because now it's obvious something scary will happen when Abby is involved for example. A scene shouldn't be predictable.

The story could have been better but it was nice to see that they tried to make the new characters grow on us. I still haven't forgotten Nick and Claudia/Jennifer, and probably never will because I don't want to, but as someone pointed out it's nice to see that the other characters are better used. However I'm still not convinced by Sarah and Becker, even Abby is starting to bore me somehow. But I think Danny and Connor works really well together. Moreover the James and Christine arc had a major twist and I'm glad Helen is not the only strong woman on the show anymore. That's why we need her back on the show ! Primeval can't afford to lose an other charismatic character. The anomaly arc was also covered but only during a few minutes.

So overall it was an average episode. It was entertaining and the woods reminded me of The Village. However it didn't convince me to watch the upcoming episode and in fact I don't think I'll come back to Primeval. My favorite characters are out of the picture and it seems the writers prefer to focus on creatures than on the anomaly, when that arc is really interesting.
