Trivia

Spear's growls and roars are provided by voice actor Aaron Laplante. Tartakovsky first met Laplante when he was developing a new animated Popeye film, and Laplante was hired to record a temporary dialogue track for Bluto. Although the project stalled, Tartakovsky liked Laplante's work, and has cast him in several projects since. See more »

Beautiful, Emotional, Raw and Violent
11 October 2019 | by hassambitwSee all my reviews

Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal, set in the Mesozoic era, depicts a story of a caveman named Spear, who, under tragic circumstances, is forced to ally with a T-Rex, Fang, in order to survive whatever obstacles it is they come across on their journey.

I'm three episodes in so far, and I'm hooked. Not only is it beautifully animated which makes every battle scene stand out and be visceral, but it does so much more to appeal to our internal emotions solely by the expressions on the characters' faces and their movements, without really humanizing anything. It reminds you that in this harsh world, to live is to eat, and to eat is to kill. The art style is gorgeous as well, with its world rich with subtle details to make it feel alive. The score for this hits a balance between something eerie and organic, with a bit of drums added in which adds to the tension during chases and whatnot.

This show is a gem. Please go see it and voice your support so we (hopefully) get to see more like this.
