Gustafson's sloppy appearance and lack of military haircut might be a deliberate mistake to suggest character, but he would never mispronounce his rank. He and the other characters all employ the American pronunciation of "lootenant" but the RCAF, like all Canadian Forces branches, pronounce it "leftenant." See more »
Before it went to air the producers promised "this new take on the UK series 'Primeval' would be darker and scarier"; it's not and I'm yet to see "plots and character development move between the two series" which they also promised.
The original Primeval had already laid the groundwork for this spin off to build off, but so far Primeval New World is just a watered down version of the original show with rather uninteresting, weak characters running around with no expertise or authority but behaving like they have both the expertise and authority to do so.
Instead of the premise being taken in a whole new and exciting direction, all we have so far is a poor mans copy of the original with every episode basically a variation on the week preceding.
There are no story arcs to keep you interested and very little character development. Literally, if all of the main characters got killed off one week, it wouldn't make the slightest difference to the overall plot.
I really hope they lift their game in future episodes or this show will go the way of the dinosaur.
