Yes, it's a spinoff/sequel to that series, from the same executive producers, but it's produced and set in Vancouver -- hence the New World subtitle.
Just a bit of clarification for you, Primeval was an ITV Production (not sure if it was inhouse or an indy production) and wasn't a BBC Production.

The original ITV version in my opinion was shite so I'm not even gonna try this new version.

Re: Is Primeval New World worth watching?

I'm watching it online because, c'mon, DINOSAURS! But I wish the characters were as engaging as the original Primeval. The lead is weaker than I'd expected because I liked him in Eureka. And then they killed off one of the better characters. I hope it picks up.

Syfy has purchased basic cable rights in the US, with Hulu getting streaming rights. No airdate has been posted to my knowledge, but it may be added to either Monday or Friday nights. Since Continuum will air season 1 back to back with the upcoming s2, that timeslot's a lock thru late spring, leaving it a candidate for Being Human or Lost Girl's timeslot, or replacing Merlin on Fridays after it finishes it's run.
Merlin is the closest of those to being done (for good), so I'm thinking that seems like the most likely place to put this.
Wait, what day is Defiance airing?
Defiance is slated for Monday nights. So it could be Continuum, Defiance & P:NW on Monday.
Syfy also picked up SkyTV's Sinbad-that could get the post WWE Friday slot after Merlin wraps.

There's one episode left.

Hm. The main thing that worries me is that I didn't like him in Eureka -- although I started to find him more acceptable in the final season as his character became less of a jerk, so hopefully it was more the character I disliked than the actor.

I saw most of Primeval, minus the majority of the last season and I thought the first two seasons were the best.

Re: Is Primeval New World worth watching?

Well that probably has to do with the reduction of Lucy Brown.

It just got weird after Abbey gave in and started reciprocating Connors loving feelings.

They always say "I wouldn't shag you if you were the last man on earth!" but no one thinks that with a time travel accident that a girls options can be just as restricted 60 million years in the past when she's alone on the planet with the first man on earth.

Half Chipmunk, but Connor mostly qualifies as a human being.

Re: Is Primeval New World worth watching?

Saw the first 4 episodes finally, I'd like to continue watching them to see if it improves, but I think the show makes less sense than the oiriginal Primeval. At least that show had scientists and government officials involved. Primeval New World has a token military officer from a Project Bluebook-like department, a CEO and animal control officer as the leads. It's also like it's their private little secret...um, shouldn't someone else know about strange anomalies popping up all over Canada?

Re: Is Primeval New World worth watching?

Imagine you discovered atomic energy and accidentally destroyed California.

Do you shut up then run about the country silencing all other atomic physicists on the cusp of a break through or do you hand over your research tot he Government and hope they don't knock out any more states while they're trying to figure out how to destroy all the Arabs with out effecting the oil under the ground.

Cross is guilty and culpable.

Things happen in subsequent episodes and you'll see that he can't trust anyone because this science is far too dangerous to pass on to soldiers and politicians.

The Buebook guy is hilarious but he wishes he had some tech from the 1960s. Every thing he has is secret agent shit invented in the 1950s to fight the Venusian Horde that's been collecting dust for the last 6 decades.

Fucking morons.



Moron.

Try baking a cake without eggs sometime (yes I know, there are eggless recipes, but those are just for pussies and hippies.)!



Fucking fucking morons.



Morons.

On a brighter side, at least we now know that I over reacted in thinking that the ARC and all those stories which were so-so turned out to still have happened.

I don't want to spoil too much, but Primeval New World is not an episodic series. What you have seen now is just the beginning. Events over the next 8 episodes that you have not watched will include the formation of an organization with very serious funding.
