Goofs

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 »

The same Primeval we all know and love... but it's more edgy!
6 February 2020 | by walkingwithprimevalSee all my reviews

As you can probably guess, the huge success of the hit British programme is what eventually lead to this foreign spin-off happening. The series has quite an ensemble cast of well-known Canadian actors who all did a decent job with the source material they where given to work with and I'd also say the showrunners pretty much pulled off adapting it faithfully for a new audience overseas in North America.

The CGI animation on the models has slightly improved since the later seasons of the original series and the prehistoric creatures themselves are portrayed in a more realistic manner with behavioural traits of wild animal in the real-world, which is unlike how they were shown previously in the UK version (something I find to be a refreshing change of pace), having almost always been represented to the TV viewing audience in the past as hyperactive carnivores equipped with "exaggerated predatory features", while half the time they're literally bouncing off the sides of walls (not so much grounded in reality). Mind you, the sound design could've been better.

It seems like rather a fitting choice for Albertosaurus to be the main antagonistic creature for the series, as they were actually native to Canada 70 million years ago and I especially loved the little added details on its design, like for instance the deformed arm and slashes along its body help to make it stand out as being more "significant" to the show's overall storyline than some of the other creatures are.

A criticism I have to make would be the fact there where no creatures depicted from the future in any of the episodes and that really just goes to show how the behind-the-scenes production team lacked imaginative thinking, since Impossible Pictures was way better at that sort of stuff when it came to creating what a speculative piece of futuristic evolution would look like.

I absolutely HATE cliffhangers because of this and the original show, they never manage to get resolved! The entire series as a whole had a lot of potential to be just as good as the original because even though it started off feeling a little bit repetitive of what's come before, by the end it really started to pick up the pace. It's a real shame it didn't get the chance to continue and conclude (or at least partially wrap up) the story they had already established.

While it's nowhere near as great as the original show, I'd still take watching this any day over seasons 4 and 5 of the original series (I think I'd rank it higher than the both of them combined).
