- Mission coordinator Jess Parker on the monitors (as anomalies crop up everyfriggin'where!): "I don't believe it! There's another one. It - it's outside! The car park!"
- The ARC Director James Lester: "Oh my god! My new Jag's in the car park! This time it's personal!"

***First off, this DVD is Region 2. Next, there is a Region 1 DVD already out (Primeval: Volume Three) which contains Series 4 & this one, Series 5 (thanks, FYI!!!)***

There was a point in Series 1 in which I thought the insidious Helen Cutter was a redeemable character. But she proved me wrong, and all the way thru to Series 3, she persisted in proving me wrong. And more than a year past her death, Helen Cutter's diabolical legacy lives on, perpetuated in the shape of Philip Burton (Alexander Siddig), philanthropist, scientist, and currently ARC's primary deep pockets. It's Philip Burton now who advances Helen's apocalyptic agenda.

So this is PRIMEVAL - THE COMPLETE SERIES FIVE, and on two discs it collects all six episodes, and I'm not sure there'll be any more after this, even though the concluding chapter does leave us once again tantalized and craving. As this series opens, whiz kid Connor Temple (Andrew-Lee Potts) is drifting away from his ARC (Anomaly Research Centre) teammates, and especially from his girlfriend Abby (Hannah Spearritt). Connor's been lacking a bit of team spirit and had been somewhat remissed in deploying with the others as they investigate temporal anomalies and fend off creature incursions. His time toiling away at Philip Burton's top secret New Dawn project has kept him away from the field.

Philip released New Dawn and Connor is trapped in the future wasteland. Matt and Abby rescue Connor and return to a world gone bonkers with the New Dawn anomoly increasing in size. Philip sacrifices himself to shut down his folly, but to no avail. The ARC team heads back to their headquarters and battles future predators while Connor works on a solution to the mess Philip's ego created. When all is said and done, the ending leaves room for Season 6 to kick off in 2013.

The creators/producers of the original Primeval series have developed an offshoot series called Primeval New World. This will air in Canada and there is a slight chance of crossover appearances from the cast of the BBC Primeval series. There is also a Primeval movie being developed. For the original BBC Primeval show, there would not be a Season 6 until probably 2013, and there is no confirmation on who the cast members would be.

I have watched Primeval from the beginning and enjoyed watching the growth of the characters Abby Maitland and Connor Temple who are as passionate about their work as they are about each other. James Lester as the snarky boss of the ARC is also one of my favorites. I hope these three come back if there is a Primeval series 6 in 2013.

UPDATE: Primeval New World the Canadian spin-off series began shooting March 2012. The goal of the series is to be darker and edgier than the original UK series and deal with prehistoric anomalies from the past and future in the Northern hemisphere. An entirely different cast has been selected, with only one familiar crossover so far - Andrew Lee Potts. NIall Matter (Zane on Eureka) will be playing an inventor/computer genius in the 13 episode first season. Amanda Tapping, Andy Mikita, Martin Wood and Mike Rohl are set to direct.

This show has come a long way. The story lines continue to evolve and the characters continue to develop into a very enjoyable Si-Fi show. Sometimes the dinos are a bit laughable, but I am sure they stretch their budget to deliver the very best they can. The acting is much better than I would have expected given the story. If you give this show time to prove itself, you wont be disappointed.

I really liked this whole series and was so sad to see it end. The did end it well though with closure to many issues but there were still lots of possibilities for future shows in the series. I'll miss watching all the antics of Conor, Abby, Becker, Jess, Matt, Emily and of course Lester.

If there was a more granular scale for rating on Amazon I would really give Primeval more like a 7 out of 10 rating. Over the five seasons this series ran there was a trend that happened more often then I liked -- character changes! Just when you get to liking one of the characters -- poof, their gone -- doh! Fortunately what kept me interested as that the replacement characters managed to work -- just have to give them a chance to win you over.
