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 »
Primeval returns with a Big Bang, despite certain reviews.
Please give this show a chance, a lot of the reviews to date are overly judgmental and biased, unfairly in my eyes. Do not dismiss this because it is a one of those shows which will grow on you, and the ending to this series is sensational, and very unexpected. The production team and values are the same as the original, which is brilliant. They have managed to maintain the spirit of the original version, and make the series equally as good as the British show. I speak as a humble Brit too. The characters are rounded and well acted. Clearly a lot of time and effort went into the values of maintaining the integrity of the original show, but also making it more grown up. Nice to see the series running longer too. A lucky 13 episodes in this series which I hope will lead to another series or five.
