Primeval



Here's a question for you Brits out there? Or you Americans with a Netflix account. Or you Canadians who bathe. Or...you get my point.

Is the Primeval series worth watching?

The first three seasons are available on Netflix streaming and I added them as an afterthought ("Dinosaurs in modern times? Sure...") a month or so ago when it came across my radar.

I watched the first couple of episodes last night and I thought it was just okay. Nothing grabbed me in that special place that I like to have grabbed, if ya know what I mean. So far, they say "anomaly" a lot. I dig the concept, but it kinda feels like a cheap SciFi Channel offering. Sorry...SyFy. Ugh.

But for those of you who have watched it, does it get any better? Or should I pull out before I get it pregnant?

Ewww.

Pull out. Watch Father Ted instead.

Nurse Jackie has my vote lately. I'm mesmerized by the show.

Haven't a clue, I'm afraid...

I see badgerdaddy recommends the withdrawal method. A bit unreliable IMO.

that show looks like utter shite to me...

badg - I've heard great things about Father Ted.

Candy - same with Nurse Jackie. Edie Falco grew up about 2 miles from our house.

Slyde - Well, it's got some time travel...and I know how much you looooove time travel.

Savannah - Prolly a good idea.
Wabbit - yeah, it's a crap shoot.

Heff said...

Can't help ya, but I will admit - the cover looks CHEEZY.

Never heard of it.
But the pull out method has always worked here.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - Sometimes cheesy is good...

Sybil - :)

Hmm, I seem to recall catching a couple of episodes on BBC America a few years back. Don't honestly remember if it was any good. Actually the fact that I don't remember probably isn't a good sign. Still, can't wait to hear what you think ;-)

I think you'd love Father Ted, it's absolutely splendid. First series is very good, but later series are actual, honest genius.

Kevin - so far? Meh. I'll let you know if I continue.

badg - It's on my queue.
