Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Bring on the CGI and the rubber suits!

Aside from the fact that they're both British shows, Primeval and Extras couldn't be more different: the former lacks everything that makes the latter such a critics' darling: the humour is broad, the dialogue is unabashed expositional gobbledygook, each episode's plot telegraphs itself during the opening credits, the characters are laughably generic stereotypes and instead of awkward, nuanced social dilemmas, the protagonists are plagued by gargantuan, bloodthirsty, prehistoric beasts.

Natuarlly, we can't wait for the second series of Primeval.
