This US spin off is just as good as the UK if not better. The Season comes with a silly '15' BBFC Rating (Rather than a 'PG' and '12' our UK Primeval came with) This comes across too high and even though it "contains strong gory images" there is little gore other then a quick 3 second view of a dead body once in a while. Overall worth a watch!

The previous seasons were made for British TV. It was a good series, I enjoyed it. This is a little different, as it was made for North America. OK, Canada. But it was exciting, and I enjoyed it nearly as much. But it must not be confused with the original Primeval. I don't see it as a follow on.

After watching all the British series I thought this one may even be better. So wrong! The special effects were minor compared and the story line was abysmal. I watched five episodes and finally gave up. Leave this show to the British and don't waste your money here.

I brought this as I loved the British version and thought chances of a 6th series were unlikely.
I really enjoyed this series, by the end I wanted a 2nd series. Would still like the ending to be explained, movie, new series etc. definitely worth the money in my opinion.

This is one of those rare programs that get the whole family together watching TV. We've enjoyed every episode and particularily liked the tie in to the British series at the beginning with one of the cast members making an appearance. It's such a pity the series is being axed so at this point in time there's not going to be a series 2; what a shame.

It seems all the best sci fi programs are being axed these days in favour of stupid reality TV and repeats of old proigrams (over and over). There are already a couple of superb reviews of this series, so all i'm going to say is its well worth getting the DVD set. I've already purchased all five series of the YK show for mty son, whoi watches them over and over. Roll on April 1st for the release of this set. :)

Our family LOVES Primeval. We were so very happy to discover a spin-off had been made in Canada. While still good, it's not a patch on the UK version. I think it's because of the lack of humour. The UK version is hilarious and serious all at the same time. This one was visually appealing, the actors were good, but the script was a bit ho hum. It's a shame it was axed after only one season, because we still would have watched any new seasons.

Andrew Lee Potts from the UK series, makes a couple of cameos, but his scenes are too serious. I would have like to have seen both him and Hannah Spearitt in this series and for their appearances to have been FUNNY.

Funnily enough, my biggest problem with this series is that they changed the opening sequence and theme music. Why? Why change what works?

Anyway, take it for what it is. The CGI is excellent and if you love dinosaurs like we do, you'll love this. :)

These are okay, I prefer the English version and of course these are rated 15 which I hadn't realised because I thought it would be like previous episodes in UK. Some swearing and more gore. On the whole entertaining for Primeval loving family.

Well - it isn't Primeval UK:
My family missed Abbey and Connor.
But when we got over that, we did like the DvD.
And the dinosaurs are good - very good.

I'm a big fan of the original UK series and watch the DVDs frequently. I got tired of waiting for "Primeval - New World" to appear on British TV so bought the DVD -BIG MISTAKE! The UK series had good, strong characters, great story lines, etc, whereas the Canadian series is dull in comparison. Although the CGIs are good they are ridiculously short [usually just a couple of minutes, and one episode has none]. One particular gripe is the fact that total blackouts appear for a couple of seconds, where the commercial breaks would have been - and there are plenty of them. I only gave it one star as I'm feeling generous.

My son is a mad Primeval fan and now that they are not making any more in this country, I thought it would be a good idea to get the Canadian version. He watched all the DVD's back to back and loved them.
