Syfy Acquires "Primeval: New World" from Entertainment One
The original Primeval that was on BBCA was very well done and was one of my favorite shows.
There are still rumors that it will get brought back, but the issue was production costs and I doubt it.
Now we need to talk SyFy into getting Contiuum!
Is Lost Girl any good?
If it has anything like the production values of the original Primeval, it will be great, so this is very good news. If it is done mainly on-the-cheap like some of these shows, then it will tank pretty quickly.
I'm not sure I understand the USA audience. The complete rejection of Charlie Jade was unexplainable to me, as the show was quite good. (I had to purchase the DVDs to see it though, so I wonder how this will fare.)
I had heard that too and that at one point Starz was going to produce it, but it never happened. I'll definitely give this one a try. I just kinda hope that don't just take the same stories from the original though.
Yes it is very good. And with a pair of hotties in the lead roles, it is some fine watching too!
I was going to watch Primeval when it first came to the states, but never got around to watching it, so I guess I'm going to have to catch up on Primeval on Netflix ... if it's there.
It is on Netflix. All seasons.
Just as long as the new "monsters" are not combinations of 2 existing species that have mated and made a new one in the future that now has the name of both pushed together..
You're the first person besides myself that ever wayched Charlie Jade. I thought the show was terrific!
I watched Charlie Jade also.
Charlie Jade was a great show. Was there more than one season that was not aired here in the U.S.?
Another fan of Charlie Jade here, while a second season was discussed it never happened. I think there was just too much going on considering it was a Canadian production company working in South Africa and was getting support from both the Canadian and South African governments.
I watched it on SyFy and had to get the DVD after that. Fortunately my Bluray player can transcode PAL DVDs and is region free (at least on PAL format)
Completely off topic:
Charlie Jade was a flawed production due to changes in writers and direction (what was with those blue stones, and then that subject was just dropped, why were 01 and Charlie the only ones who could cross universes at will, and what did water have to do with the crossing, etc). It was a darn good idea and story. And a great name "VEXcore" for the evil company.
A second season was planned, but never greenlit.
One final off-topic post for the Charlie Jade fans, it is now on Netflix: http://movies.netflix.com/Movie/Charlie-Jade/70217322
Several of my friends and I watched Charlie Jade.
The original Primeval was really good until they started killing everybody off, and dropping the original cast. For some reason, I tlerated it on MI-5 better than Primeval. I hope they don't have such a volitile cast on P:New World.
Syfy's Newest Original Series "Sinbad" and "Primeval: New World"
Will Premiere Saturday, June 8
Great news! I was getting discouraged that this new Primeval would ever show up.
The old one was so good, but looks to never actually be revived.
I've seen a couple of the British Sinbad's that SyFy is going to run paired up with Primeval and didn't really like it. It's a mix of historical setting, hip contemporary and was a muddled mess.
But back to the main topic, I hope the US version of Primeval is much fun as the original. That first episode with the dinosaur stomping through suburbia was pretty cool.
