      Season 5 – Primeval

      2011 Drama Mystery & Thriller Sci-Fi Adventure List
      Reviews 62% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Strange, unexplained "anomalies" have ripped multiple holes in the fabric of time and space, allowing dangerous (and dangerously hungry) creatures from the distant past to lumber onto the streets of modern Britain. A crack team of specialists were appointed by the government to investigate and control these "creature incursions," creating the Anomaly Research Center (ARC), which is now jointly owned by the government and by entrepreneurial scientist Philip Burton. The ruthless, manipulative Burton heads ARC's control center, often butting heads with government official James Lester, while zoologist Matt Anderson leads a capable crew in the field. They are under siege, however -- anomalies are becoming more numerous, unpredictable and dangerous than ever before, and the end of the world seems to be just around the corner.

      Previous Charles Webb MTV The series writers keep the structure of the episodes fairly simple and allow the action to unfold simply and cleanly without too much protracted build-up. Jul 3, 2018 Full Review Dan Owen What Culture It's a shame Primeval's failed to rise to the next level, despite clearly wanting to, and the corniness of its characters doesn't help matters. 1.5/4 May 25, 2011 Full Review Chris Conatan PopMatters There's enough action-packed monster fighting to keep the show exciting, the character development is solid, and the cerebral overarching plot will keep sci-fi fans interested. 6/10 May 24, 2011 Full Review Next
