They weren't picked up for 2nd seasons by their original networks either.

I'd like to be able to say that I'm sorry these two didn't make it, but I've been watching them and can understand their short lives.  :(

I had no interest in Sinbad but I've been getting into Primeval: New World a bit.

It was very unlikely that Syfy would actually pick up the production of these shows since they were cancelled by their original network.

You should look at the UK version of Primeval, it ran 5 seasons.

This is the Link to Youtube season 1 episode 1 Entire.

Right side had links for more episodes.


I searched on Google for

Primeval UK Season 1 Youtube

I've been watching it and I'm up to the 4th season out of 5. The Special effects look much better to me too.

Yeah, I added it to my Netflix queue a while back.  I just had not had time to get to it yet.

Not as good as most British shows, I thought.  Watched them for awhile and gave up.  Rarely do that with British content.

I still haven't started watching the UK versions yet but I probably will once the US version is done.  

 

I think we're in the same camp in thinking that British TV is better than US TV.  Only part of that is because British TV allows profanity.  British TV is just "smarter".

Yup, I watch a lot of streaming British shows on NF.  For some reason, Primeval, the British version, never really grabbed me.

There are ways to get BBC programming without waiting for Netflix, and no I don't mean torrents.  A legit way...  :)

Me either!  That was pretty bad, but I thought Primeval NW was pretty good, and the cliff hanger was well done.  It's always good to see Andrew Potts again.  Too bad about the ratings. :(
