Primeval: New World: Not as Good as the Original
I tried to watch Primeval: New World, which is now on Hulu. Though the premise is the same as the UK version, which happens to be one of my all-time favourite TV shows, New World is just not the same. It has poorer scripts, poorer acting, poorer direction, and flat, unlikable characters. After watching a couple of episodes of New World, I went back and re watched several episodes of Primeval, Series 4. What a difference! The acting is better, the scripts are better, the directing is better, and I find myself caring about the characters. In New World, I would just as soon see the creatures eat the characters and be done with it!
