Cutter also has to deal with a deeply personal dilemma -his wife, believed dead for eight years, has actually been travelling in time; now she is back with possible answers to the riddle of the anomalies, but is it an answer she is willing to share?

Possibly a few scattered SPOILERS...

Okay, the Brits have sure been bringing it to the TV sci-fi genre. Originally aired on the U.K.'s ITV network, PRIMEVAL is the latest offering to reach the States, and, to me, it's just as addictive as DOCTOR WHO (Doctor Who - The Complete First Series) or TORCHWOOD (Torchwood - The Complete First Season).

PRIMEVAL basically plonks prehistorical and futuristic monsters into the present and has them scaring the bejesus out of the unsuspecting British population. These often frightening beasties come from rifts in the space-time continuum which are manifesting unpredictably in the U.K. A small team of scientists, led by maverick evolutionary professor Nick Cutter, investigates these temporal doorways. But Cutter and company are often hampered by the British government, which (perhaps understandably) seeks to keep a lid on these mind-boggling goings-on. But it's hard going, keeping it all on the covert, what with these things occasionally popping up in public areas and a certain young member of the team unable to quite keep his mouth shut. Anyway you slice it, to quote the resident nerd Connor Temple, "I think the scientific term is 'really bad news.'"

As the team encounters each new anomaly, the mystery just deepens. Each anomaly presents its own challenge, as a different and often lethal entity seems to emerge each time. Cutter states that "Some force out there ripped the boundaries of space and time to shreds.

Those of you who subscribe to BBC America, you are in for a treat - Primeval (Series One) is coming soon. For the rest of you, here's your chance to buy a great series ahead of the curve. I have the Complete Series One and Two from Region 2 (UK) and I'm going to assume that they are the same even though no details were provided.

It's a great series about time portals being discovered by the British government when creatures from prehistoric time (and the future in the second season) suddenly appear to wreck havoc on it's citizens. An evolutionary zoologist named Nick Cutter (Douglas Henshall) is brought in to contain the problem. He brings his assistant, Stephen (James Murray), the UK equvilent of post grad assistant (Hannah Spearritt), and the newcomer - a geeky college student with a gift for prehistoric info (Andrew Lee Potts).

Of course this group butts heads with the government types but there is romance too between Dr. Cutter and the government agent (Lucy Brown). At least until Cutter's lost wife (Juliet Aubray) reappears with one of the time portals. There are romantic undercurrents with the grad student and the assistant and the college geek as well. It all plays out nicely. There is plenty of witty banter and cool creatures to keep everyone entertained. Although none of it is very scary, I know the spider and bug episode from Series One really creeped me out.

For the parents out there: it's rated PG. It has some prehistoric creature violence but it is not too gory. There is a scene of a woman walking around in her underwear and tee shirt but nothing serious.

I predict this series will be a huge hit here too. The special effects are outstanding for a tv series.

I'm not going to go on another rant about canceled sci-fi/fantasy series again. I'm not! Instead, I'm going to praise the good people of Great Britain for bringing us quality entertainment when nobody on our side of the Atlantic will do so. God bless the BBC for giving shows like this one and Hex room to grow. "Primeval" is packed with cool characters with charming accents, great-looking CG beasties by the boatload, beautiful women with the inevitable sexual tension that results from hot people working together under high-stress situations, some wicked good humor, and more of the mind-bending time-travel conundrums that sci-fi fans flip for than you can shake a velociraptor at. If you like dinosaurs, time-travel, or science-fiction thank the BBC for this gift.

The series follows a group of scientists whose job it is to keep under wraps a series of anomalies in the form of space-time rips. Through these rips, something inevitably comes out and other things go in which could potentially lead to world-ending results. What if an advanced predator from the future got loose in our time and bred, leading to the extinction of the human race? Or if a diseased rat went back in time and ended life on Earth before mankind ever existed? And ain't it a pain when you go back in time just as you're about to seal the deal with the hottest girl on the show and come back only to find that nobody knows who the hell you're talking about? So whenever one of these portals opens, our protagonists have to track down the monster-of-the-week, solve the problem, attempt to study the cause of the rift, and then lie like hell to cover the whole thing up. But wait, there's more! There's always more.
