Recently finished watching it and was quite impressed. Might be worth its own thread.

Re: Primeval series 4

Here's an interview with Ben Masterson (Becker). Digitalspy

Season starts tonight on BBC America, 9pmEST/8 Central. Waah...I don't get BBCA, but I'm hoping the show will be available On Demand. The Doctor Who Xmas special and the previous 4 specials were in the TV series section under BBC America (in the TV Entertainment tab). So if you don't get the network in your cable tier but have digital basic, check the On Demand section under TV Series.

Re: Primeval series 4

to be honest I thought the first half of the episode was dull, certainly the stuff set in the present day, the second half being better, even if it was very easy that Connor would find the control device like he did, but they were always a very easy plot device.

Comes to something when Becker is the best charcater in the cast.

Some good CGI however, some parts better than others however.

and finally playing an S Club track? really?

All that said nothing I watch today has pleased me, maybe im being unduely harsh.

Re: Primeval series 4

Wamdue, I've been "meh" about the series ever since they removed the Nick Cutter character. It's a show I watch when there's nothing else to do. I'm ... er ... getting ready ... to watch 4x01 right now, but these days it's in the same bin as Warehouse 13 and Eureka for me.

Given who is in the cast, I burst out laughing when that came on.

oddly enough that is why I mentioned it, I would have let it go without mention if it wasnt for the fact Abbey is an ex S Clubber (if that is the phrase). I did notice she wasnt moving to the funky s club beat mentioned in the the song.

Re: Primeval series 4

Just noticed this in the Wikipedia entry:
Plans for a feature film version of Primeval have been revealed by ITV with Warner Bros. reportedly having acquired the screen rights with Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster named as the producers.[23] In August, 2010, Jonathan Drake, Managing Director of Impossible Films, confirmed rumours of a spin-off series. According to Drake, Impossible has entered a franchising deal with Canadian independent company, Omni Film Productions, to produce a Canadian version of the series. Drake said, "We won't be replacing the UK show in the international market but complementing it. It will provide a positive glow for our catalogue of existing Primeval shows. And if something were to happen to the UK version, the brand still survives." Star Trek: Enterprise writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens are expected to deliver scripts for the new series.
The Reeves-Stevens are good writers, and know their history, so this might be OK.

Quick question: anyone know if Jason Flemyng is going to make a reappearance? It'd be very cool if he did, even if just to get him home.
