Trivia

The show put forward the then-proposed idea that the ostrich-like dinosaurs were water-going filter-feeders like modern-day ducks. This theory isn't accepted anymore. See more »

Goofs

The dinosaurs Troodon and Mei are depicted as scaly, even though by the time this show was made, evidence had come to light that they were probably covered in feathers. See more »

The true heir of Jurassic Park
10 May 2016 | by tankaceSee all my reviews

After seen the Jurassic World I felt a bit disappointed, because it was a simple cash cow in order to take money and I felt it is time to remind to the world the true successor of the Jurassic Park, the mini series of 2006, Prehistiric Park. The concept is silly, but the execution was great. The story goes like that, in the present day Nigel Marven and his team has made a park in order to accommodate excited creatures, which they bring back from the time those were going extinct. The idea is like a cross between Back to the Future and Jurassic Park ,but the crew and its reaction in the way the story works is almost perfectly and the manner they try to find by which way the animal will react by comparing them with the modern day counterparts is great, because for example, either you live in modern day, the Ice Age, the Mesozoid Era or the Carboniforous a top predator is a top predator and its other characteristics, like environment,class or even anatomy are secondary. In the end the only drawbacks the series had was the CGI for two or three animal ,it is was a bit a sword thump and its short length, after the end of the sixth and last episode you crave for more and unfortunately the satisfaction never comes, boomer! Anyway I still like it and recommended for the dinosaur enthusiast and followers of Jurassic Park and for real Mr Marven you have a thing on going back in time, I think that is a bit of a bad habit for a homo sapiens, If you really want to travel trough time just team up with the Doctor(ha ha ha ha !!) he will be as excited as you and even more.
