Good idea Junior - I was going to start a thread other week but forget about it! Very Happy

Great show, and a real shock last week. Who knows where we're going over the next 7 weeks.

I enjoy the programme. Last week's episode made me rather sad.

It was brilliant tonight. Lots of plots going on at once, and very exciting sequences with the G Rex.

Am I right in thinking that this is the last series?

Very strong stories coming out of the near bankrupt ITV that it will be the last series. Which is shame IMO 'cos it's great fun.

Tonight's episode was classic Primeval. Plot holes the size of a Boeing 747, but it didn't matter - how cool was it that
Spoiler:
Nigel Marven was in it, even better that he got eaten by Giganotosaurus!

Very much looking forward to the rest of the series. Very Happy

Why do all these things get good just when they're about to be cancelled? Sad

Excellent episode. Quatermass meets Doctor Who & The Silurians meets Primeval. Ben Miller was in supreme form. Gutted to see the gorgeous Jenny bow out, but
Spoiler:
I'm sure we'll get the Claudia pay-off in the final episode.

IMO this series just gets better and better. Smile

It would be criminal if ITV were to axe it now, especially as they've sold the movie rights to Warner Bros, and it's all systems go on that front.

After a 9 week build up with many twists along the way, what do ITV do? Give it 2 week break because of BGT. Evil or Very Mad

Crap decision. That now leaves precisely zero that I watch on ITV.

Even though I don't watch it, I feel that this is a bad decision on ITV's part. It's cancelled one of it's last drama shows, one that was getting reasonable ratings for the slot it was in. Now, I'm going to be a bit annoyed if, after axing regional news, regional studios, children's televison, and now just about all drama production, the short-sighted profit-hungry ITV manage to get a lump of my licence fee.

This was on the cards from the moment that the noxious Demons so spectacularly tanked. It frightened the ITV accountants - even moreso the all-important advertisers, with the knock-on effect being felt by poor old Primeval..

It'll be a long while before ITV touches another prime-time genre show with a bargepole.

Only the viewers are the real losers here.

But watching Primeval and Demons, I felt like I'd already lost something (possibly the will to live), so was it a no-win situation?

Very possibly yes. The only thing that's certain is that ITV have basically picked-up their ball and left the pitch in a huff.

As a result the BBC, literally, have a more-or-less unchallenged monopoly on UK telefantasy

The demise of Primeval is just another nail in the coffin for ITV. It was improving in quality season by season and the replacement of Doug Henshall with Jason Flemyng was a good move. Never warmed to Henshall in the series and Flemyng hit the ground running, immediately creating a likeable character.

Conversely Robin Hood has really gone down the toilet. This latest series has been turgid and dull. Only livened up by Toby Stephens camping it up rotten as Prince John.

Agreed. This season has been a quantum leap in quality over what went before. Flemyng was everything Henshall should have been and certainly what the series needed from the outset.

As for Hood. Have hardly even remembered it was back this series. We've only actually seen the Toby Stephens episodes. As for the rest - they simply failed to register.

had the hardest time getting to see this show. Now they've cancelled it. I almost wanna ask, "What's the point of seeing it now?" However, what I really want to know is how does it end? Does it end on a cliffhanger that'll never be resolved or did they allow everything to tie up nicely and have a proper ending?

Well, thanks for telling me. I won't bother to watch it now. The least ITV could do is a one-off to tie up loose ends for fans. Maybe a single 2 hour movie or a 90 minute special...or even a 60 minute special. That's just annoying.

They are doing a 2 hour feature film for theaters of Primeval. I've heard that. But for international release, it won't pick up where the show left off, but be a reboot of sorts.
