Good creature but disappointing story and even worst ending
4 May 2009 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

The fungus creature was original and well rendered. Moreover they didn't make the same mistake as with the G-Rex as its scenes mostly occurred in dark tunnels. The lab one was specially interesting and reminded of Half Life, the video game. Its effect on the characters was also quite frightening. I specially enjoyed its interactions with Connor and Jennifer.

About the story even if it was only a creature of the week episode I quite enjoyed it. However it was just entertaining. Moreover a major twist happened and now I think I've just lost faith in the show. They really have to step up their game if they don't want to lose their viewers. Introducing new characters like Danny is not enough, even if I like him.

I think the only solution to save Primeval would be to focus on the anomaly arc but I don't think it'll happen.
