Trivia

It is left to our imagination how Nigel and his crew traveled back in time. In the spin-off series Prehistoric Park (2006), he does this via a time portal, though even the workings of that are never explained. See more »

Goofs

During the title sequence, a pterosaur flies past above a Saurolophus, but it doesn't cast a shadow on it. Also, the shadow of the Tarbosaurus' feet don't match up, its left foot seems to be slightly floating. See more »

What the hell happened?
24 March 2010 | by seenit-694-66980See all my reviews

After three ground-breaking programmes that utterly redefined television documentary making, along came this mess of a show. Clearly the objective was to build upon the populist daring of the likes of the late Steve Irwin. Only one problem though: Irwin had charisma, this guy has none. And I mean none. Even the mosquitoes steal some scenes.

But, I hear you saying, haven't the dinosaurs got even better? Sadly no. If anything they're actually reduced to a walk on role in long shot or "chasing" the host. I estimate 70% of screen time has Nigel mumbling something either uninteresting or unfunny or warning us about what could happen when the dinosaurs do turn up. Trying to "scare" us in other words. He doesn't need to try. This show IS scary, but for the wrong reasons. It's contrived and boring and an embarrassment to all involved. Don't even bother trying YOUTUBE. Save your money and download limit.
