Format:Blu-ray
One thing that I've noticed in looking at television reviews is that many people feel that if they watch a show, it automatically qualifies for a five star rave. I'm somewhat more pragmatic. I watch a variety of TV, not all of it is spectacularly good. In fact, I'd rate the shows I view regularly anywhere from 3 stars to 5 stars (I've even watched a few 2 or 1 star seasons when a program I liked dipped in quality). I'm mentioning this in preface to my comments about "Primeval: New World" because it's a show that I genuinely enjoyed as a lark. If you like dinosaurs, it's a bit of fun to pass the time. If you had the opportunity to watch it for free on SyFy (where it aired), I'd say "go for it." I'm a little more reticent about a full fledged DVD/Blu-ray purchase, however, because I'm not sure if you'd sit down to watch the series more than once. On the plus side: It's fun, lightweight, has an attractive cast, and some good dinosaur effects. Realistically, though, the monster of the week theme gets a bit repetitive. As the show tries to expand its mythology and intrigue later in the season, it does show signs of ramping up the drama to the next level. But just as things start to look more promising, the season comes to a close. And as the program was canceled, we'll never have the chance to see if the story lines would have deepened and gotten more rewarding.

"Primeval: New World" was a Canadian twist on the popular British series that ran for five seasons between 2008 and 2011. The original "Primeval," which also struggled to find its initial footing, had a number of things going for it. In tone, it could be both exceedingly dark AND ridiculously goofy. The cast had a quirky energy and grooved together well, each playing a rather distinctive role.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable but not as good as the British show. November 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hi,

First let me begin by saying that I watched the British show for five seasons and really enjoye it. It was a little annoying as they kept killing off front line characters, and so you ended up in season five with only two original cast members who were both more minor roles, but you had to take the good with the bad. As you had to take the incredible scenes of empty city streets whenever a dinosaur went on the rampage.

PNW is not as good. It isn't terrible but it's limited.

The range of creatures battled is a long way down on what you saw in the British show. And that's important when in the original series half the fun was in working out just what the hell the team were facing in each episode. It lent the plot some twists. PNW leaves you really with just one plot - they're coming to eat you.

The characters are more mundane, less individual. Not many of them have deep dark pasts,and only one of them has some overwhelming need to be doing what he's doing. This steals from the drama of the show, leaving what could be a good character driven show a little flat.

There is a glaring plot problem in it in that the lead guy hunting down the anomalies is a private citizen with a personal reason for the hunt. And everybody else just falls in line with his quest for no really obvious reason. The plain fact of the matter is that if anomalies were showing up and there was proof, then the government would be everywhere. The British show covered this by having the Anomaly Research Centre as part of the government. This one just seemed to gloss over the whole problem, with only the black ops military people doing a sort of side research project and everyone else apparently just content to remain in the dark or allow a civilian to do the government's work.

Having said that this was a reasonable romp. Not up to the standard of the original but good enough to spend a weekend watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Primeval New World: Complete Series [Blu-ray] October 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This show started slowly but ended with a bang. It's really too bad that it got CANCELLED by it's CANADIAN producers! I missed the last (2) episodes when I was in MONTREAL & QUEBEC on vacation. Several of my neighbors raved about the final (2) shows which prompted me to buy the complete first series. Evidently, the SYFY CHANNEL doesn't air discontinued series!

Format:DVD
When I was a young spud, TV was more than a bit different than what it is for young spuds today. For starters, we didn’t have a billion channels to flip through in order to find something remotely interesting. What we did have though largely thanks to the 1960’s and early 70’s was a fair amount of fun-centric sci-fi themed shows that would tickle the young mind … especially the young boys’ minds. The space age was all the rage, and, with STAR TREK and LOST IN SPACE, every one of us wanted to be astronauts. Those who didn’t? Well, we could roam the depths in VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, or we could race through time in TIME TUNNEL. These programs went a long way toward fueling our imagination, largely populating them with various monsters and other oddities that would keep us glued to those silver screens as well as keep us awake at night for fear that they were coming to eat us alive.

Hats off to the folks behind PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD for returning to those sentiments, even if it was only for a scant thirteen episodes of men, monsters, and the mayhem resulting when they met.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

New age wunderkind Evan Cross has lost the love of his life to the most curious circumstances imaginable: while exploring an abandoned building to track down a magnetic anomaly, the two lovebirds can face-to-face with a lumbering Albertosaurus who munches down his would-be bride.

Stick with the original BBC "Primeval". Boring, uninspired Canadian crew of look-alike actors. Bland plots, no charisma. No wonder this show became extinct.
