4.0 out of 5 stars Good New World Coming To An End, 22 April 2013
This review is from: Primeval: New World - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Was a big fan of the UK series and was a bit worried when I heard it was being taken on by the Canadians but I need not have been as it was pretty good and was definitely looking forward to the next season. Alas, it will not be as they have axed it already. What is the matter with these US and Canadian channels who just axe everything because the ratings are a bit low to start with? How many great series have ended because of this? I bet far more actually watch it than are reflected in the ratings because they record it and watch it later but of course that doesn't count. How daft is that!! I find it so frustrating especially when so many rubbish shows keep going year after year. Great shame and once again we are left up in the air. These channels are killing off programmes that could have ended up being classics and they will never know - more fool them. Come on - wake up and stick with something a bit longer. Don't go by ratings because in this day and age they mean nothing. Go by what us the viewers are saying on various platforms - that will give you the real picture on how they are being received!!

Yes, it's funny, isn't it, how the North American culture regarding new series has changed for the worse. The first series of "Hill Street Blues" had persistently low ratings, but the makers had enough faith in it to keep it going until it caught the public imagination and attracted the deserved success that it eventually became. What has happened? Where has all the sense gone?
