Professor Nick Cutter lost his wife Helen seven years ago. Helen vanished without a trace. Now Nick gathers together a
team to investigate mysterious anomalies that brings extinct creatures like dinosaurs and mamoths from the past into the present.
Cutter finds out Helen is alive and he doesn't trust her. Why did she disappear without telling him she was alive? Why is
she contacting him now?
PRIMEVAL is a cool discovery. The British come up with some nifty sci-fi like DOCTOR WHO, BLAKE'S 7, and more. It has the
creatures for the kids and the complex relationship stuff for the adults. The casting in an interesting mix where
another pop star takes a crack at acting (Abby is played by one of the members of S Club 7). It also helps that
I don't recognize any of the actors which helps add to the life that the actors breathe into them. Volume One
contains series (season) one and two which are a different breed from each other. The end of season one shows the anomalies
have consequences which set the stage for the changes in season two including one character being an entirely different character.
I hope more PRIMEVAL is to come.
Two making of documentaries are included on the set (they decide to make the season 2 making-of more interesting by letting
one of the cast host and direct it). Also a couple of audio commentaries were recorded for season 2 (episodes 7 and
13 on the set).
FINAL ANALYSIS; PRIMEVAL is a fun piece of sci-fi TV from the UK with interesting characters and great special effects.
I hope season 3 is on it's way.
