     PNW Screen Captures – Episode Four
21st Nov Written By Saara

I’ve added some screen captures of Primeval: New World episode four. How did you like Angry Birds?


Primeval: New World – Screen captures – S01E04





     PNW Episode Four Reviews *edit*
21st Nov Written By Saara

Seems like I’m not the only one behind with episode 4. I’ve added a few more. Be careful with spoilers though:

CrimsonTear: “Angry Birds” was an excellent episode, and its story solidifies why Gillian Horvath became an executive producer for the series. Amazing job! Read more

SciFiBulletin: Terror Birds have always been one of the races that have been difficult to get right on Primeval: feathers aren’t easy to create, for a start, and there’s the temptation that they can perhaps be a bit cute. The original series story with them, filmed in Dublin Jail, overcame that problem, and the claustrophobic atmosphere of this episode helps as well – I was a little dubious about the pre-credits sequence, but the scenes in the train and the yard work really well, and full kudos to Mark Savela and the team for making the birds react so well with Andy Mikita’s live-action sequences. Read more

DenofGeek: Overall Angry Birds was an improvement over the filler episode three which, though an interesting story, didn’t really advance the series along. — On top of that, the episode contained the strongest CGI so far with a well-rendered creature that interacted well with the scenery and got a lot of screen time, in a series that has been a bit lacklustre with the creations so far. Read more

Don’t forget to watch Primeval: New World episode 4 tonight 10E/7P on Space. The episode is called Angry Birds. I don’t know if I should think about the terror birds (Series 3) or the other Angry Birds (I’m from Finland).

Episode Four

     PNW may need to be censored in the UK
15th Nov Written By Saara

I thought this was about the blood and bodies but it’s actually a language issue, according to this fun article (with no spoilers).

A Canadian spinoff of the ITV and Watch show Primeval, airing on Space, may have hit a small bump.

The new series, Primeval New World has a new British cast member, Danny Rahim as weapons expert Mac Rendell, and the script has been written accordingly, with some British epithets to boot.

Such as “shite” and “buggered off”.

Which is all well and good for US and Canadian television. But probably unusable in pre-watershed Saturday afternoon British television, which is when the show has usually aired.

Did they do alternative takes? Will be get an audio dub with “awful” and “bugged” used instead?

“Sodding” should be okay these days. But even so…

Let’s find out. The show will air in the UK in early 2013.

     The Return of the Dinosaurs
14th Nov Written By Saara

Here’s a really nicely written general review of Primeval: New World. It doesn’t contain any major spoilers, just overall opinions of the new show with comparisons to the original one.

Since the ending of Primeval last year, fans of the series have been waiting for the return of the series. So far it looks like the original is done, but a North American spin-off has arrived, and it is just as good as the original.

Actually, it feels very similar to the first season of Primeval. Unlike the past seasons of the original series, everyone is still in the discovery phase. There are no seasoned dinosaur hunting veterans here, just a rag-tag group who are looking for answers. This makes it easy for new viewers to jump aboard without needing prior knowledge of the original five. Also, by having a completely new team, with a visit from a fan favourite, fans of the original series can still sink their canines into it without this series feeling like a reboot of the original.

One the largest difference which fans will notice, other than the location and team, is that this series is not afraid to show the mess. Where the original Primeval would have the bloody aftermath off screen, New World delves deeper into the evisceration and lacerations inflicted to the helpless victims. While they haven’t taken it to gory levels, it makes it feel more real. The deaths are still done off screen, thankfully, since people getting eaten by dinosaurs would like be too much for viewers, and the shows budget.

The dinosaurs are very close to the visual effects we saw on the fifth season of Primeval, perhaps even just a bit better. I am glad they didn’t change them up too much as that would have made this series feel very different from the original. There are better looking dinosaurs out there, but for TV, they still look amazing, and terrifying.

As for the characters, they fell unbelievably real. It is very rare for a series to create great characters in the very first episode. There are still many mysteries revolving around everyone to keep them interesting too, so we don’t have to worry about them feeling repetitive any time soon.

In the original Primeval, British humour filled the episodes, which made many events and characters have other meanings for international viewers, and this series will be no different. In this first episode there were several scenes where Canadians will understand events in a different light, like Project Magnet. Since it is very difficult to create a humorous situation that is universally recognized, this is something fans in the UK, when if airs in January, will have to get used to.

This series is also the second Science Fiction series aired this year that was shot in Vancouver and took place in Vancouver. It worked very well for Continuum, and so far, it works very well for Primeval: New World. It would be great if this trend continues, but to other cities as well. I am sick of seeing one city and having the writers pretend it is another.

From what I have seen, this series should be one for fans and new viewers to watch. I hope as the series continues, everything will build on this fantastic premiere and put the Primeval series back on the map.

According to comments on Twitter, everyone who watched it has found something to like or love. This is a great sign, but in the end, it will be the total amount of viewers which will determine its true success.

Reviewer’s Rating: 4.5/5

     PNW Episode Three Reviews
14th Nov Written By Saara

The third episode is my new favourite of New World so far. How did you like it? Here go a few other opinions, some containing major spoilers.

Den Of Geek: Primeval New World is so far enjoyable but I’m not yet convinced of its brilliance and at the moment it’s behind the UK original in the fun and imagination stakes, though does benefit from a script that’s a bit wittier and punchier. I wouldn’t say its shaking-off of the family image of the UK version for a more-adult style is yet really paying off, unless a bloodied-corpse and the mention of sex constitutes a higher rating. Read more

SciFiBulletin: There are some genuine shocks in this, which are well-shot by regular Smallville, Supernatural and Eureka director Mike Rohl, as well as some interesting character development for the leads (or at least, those we see).Read more

ImpactOnline: Definitely an episode that should prove that audiences and the show’s powers-that-be are on the right track…Read more

     PNW Episode Two reviews *updated*
9th Nov Written By Saara

Just bumping the thread a little bit.

The firsts reviews of Primeval: New World episode two are in. More to follow soon. Remember that they contain spoilers.

GeekHardShow: After last weeks episode was a bit of disappointment for me when compared to UK Primeval, this week does see some improvement overall in the acting and directing departments. — Even better, the direction felt more inline with what we should expect with Primeval. There was a greater sense of tightening of pacing this week, which allowed for more natural tension and drama throughout. Read more

SciFiBulletin: The effects work continues to be good: the interaction of the humans and the creatures sells the latter, and we’re getting a lot of close-ups of the textures. The only aspect I’m not sold on so far is the theme music, which seems a little gentle for the nature of the show – but that really is a minor detail in a great continuation. Read more

DenofGeek: The show is certainly growing on me. There are enough developments in the episode of the overall arc to keep me interested with — and the script is filling up with witty lines and some interesting dialogue. The CGI is great if not spectacular, and if you ignore the plot-by-numbers, lack of any truly massive set-pieces, and quite a bland creature of the week it’s an enjoyable episode that neatly establishes the set-up and advances what we know about the characters. Read more

SFX: Primeval: New World might be more serious and more character drama based than its quirky and lighthearted predecessor, but it can still be watched and enjoyed by the whole family. It’s a shame dinosaurs are extinct and unable to see how popular they are with toddlers and adults. Read more

     Primeval app out soon
8th Nov Written By Saara

I got an interesting e-mail this morning about a new Primeval related app. I think the video speaks for itself but here’s a short extract of the introduction. The app will be out in a couple of days with more information. Excited?

The app is called Primeval dFX. It’s from Robots and Pencils, the guys behind Spy vs Spy and Catch the Princess on the games side and apps like Deco and RightMove, and based on the breakout sci-fi series Primeval: New World, which is coming to the US, UK, and France in 2013.

Primeval dFX uses the 3D CGI technology that powers the dinosaur effects on the show and brings it to iOS, so you can add crazy-good dinosaur effects to movies you take with your iPhone or iPad, then save them or upload them to Facebook. So while you can’t actually have raptors take out that pesky relative, you can make videos of it happening, and that’s pretty cool, too.

     PNW cast on “old world” and more
1st Nov Written By Saara

Here’s a really great Q&A at the MCM Expo with the Primeval: New World cast and Andrew, where they give away interesting curiosities about the show and refer to the original one. Some bits here and all credit goes to Primeval Denial for Part One and Part Two.

Question: And what was it about the original that you liked?

Niall Matter: Hannah Spearritt.
Sara Canning: Me too, she’s lovely.
Danny Rahim: Me three!
Sara Canning: We are the Hannah Spearrit fan club. I knew that it was hugely successful and I was really fascinated by dinosaurs as a kid and it looked like fun! And take that and add a darker vision for Primeval New World and I think it’ll look great.

Question: Had any of you guys seen or heard of the UK show before you got involved in the casting for this?

Niall Matter: I personally had never seen or heard of the show before. As soon as the script came across my plate I checked it out, obviously I wanted to be educated before I got into it. I really liked Andrew-Lee Potts, and I identified with him. I also really enjoyed the character of Cutter, who was short-lived, only two seasons, and then I got involved with the world of Primeval: New World. When I was wrapped, I ended up watching seasons 4 and 5 and the production values really went up and up.

Question: So you’re our Captain Becker equivalent?

Danny Rahim: Well, I was trying not to say, but yes, absolutely.
Niall Matter: Absolutely.
Danny Rahim: Yes, he’s our Becker equivalent.

Question: Will any hanging storylines from the original be resolved?

Niall Matter: There is potential for that to occur and potential for crossover, to learn more about what the original team went through The two shows are running in parallel, timewise.

Question: Will we find out what’s happened to the old team?

Niall Matter: We don’t address that in the show but as Connor Temple lives on in the new show, we assume so do the rest of the British team. We might find out more in later seasons.
Andrew Lee Potts: Lots of things are hinted at that have happened in the British team, but I can’t talk about them. It’s a bit ambiguous. There’s a lot Connor doesn’t want to share that they have to work out for themselves. You might find out a bit later. Can’t say.

Question: Andrew’s favourite episode?

Andrew Lee Potts: The first episode. I liked working with Douglas Henshall. And also the episode where Abby gets taken by the mer-creatures.

Question: Which cast does Andrew prefer working with?

Andrew Lee Potts: I have to go with my original cast as I’ve worked with them more. There’s a real difference between the two, though and I had a lot of fun working on New World.

Question: A question about costumes.

Andrew Lee Potts: This hat is for New World ((indicates the one he’s wearing)). There’s always some sort of quirk in Connor’s costumes.

Question: How much of you is in the characters?

Andrew Lee Potts: Well, unlike Niall I am a genius so have that in common with Connor. I also have a sense of humour, and I look a lot like him.

     First reviews of PNW *edit*
30th Oct Written By Saara

Some reviews of the first Primeval: New World are in. As usual, we’ll try to keep the page spoiler-free but I’ll say that I really enjoyed the Pottsy bits, general plot and the ending. The dinosaurs look better than ever too.

VancouverSun.com: The important thing to know is that Primeval: New World is both watchable and entertaining, the modern-day equivalent of ’60s sci-fi TV classics like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Time Tunnel. Read more

GeekHardShow.com: I still think you should check it out and support this type of production regardless of country of origin. Quality sci-fi is hard to find. With some minor tweaks, this could really become something worth watching each week. Read more

ScifiBulletin: With two constituencies to answer to – newbies and long-term fans – the balance in the script works well. It’s more gory than its forebear (it gets a 14 rating in Canada) but that’s no bad thing. Add in a set of effects that match the original in terms of design, and you’ve got a cracking start. Read more

DenofGeek: Is it is as fun and well put-together as the UK original? No, it didn’t quite feel like a whole episode. Was it worth watching for forty minutes? Absolutely. The titbits of plot given to us were well built in and the dialogue was sharp and at times witty. It might sit awkwardly with some of the plot strands established in the UK Primeval but it’s also happy to acknowledge them in the script. Cross seems a likeable lead and Angelika a well-scripted boss. Some of the peripheral characters will take some time to establish but this is only episode one. It’s just a shame it’s lacking that certain something that makes this a strong stand alone episode rather than one piece of a larger puzzle. But there’s plenty to enjoy and I’m glad Primeval has got a new lease of life, even if it is one that’s perhaps a little shallower than the original. But there was much to enjoy and I look forward to episode two to see how they build on the show now the characters and concept has been established.. Read more
