    In the concluding episode, Nigel returns to the end of the Cretaceous period to bring back a different monster - a dinosaur-eating crocodile. However, an unwanted hitchhiker throws the Prehistoric Park into chaos.



    In the series' finale, Nigel goes back to bring back Deinosuchus, a crocodile that ate dinosaurs in a manner that modern crocodiles eat antelopes and buffallo. Unfortunately, an opportunistic Troodon (a velociraptor-like dinosaur) hitches a ride back to the present, and causes a park-wide break-out.



    In the concluding episode, the series' weakness becomes apparent: they are finite, and working with a limited amount of characters, who were given only a limited amount of development, which starts to grate on the audience's nerves as the episodes went by. Thus, it is extremely unlikely, despite the promise at the episode's end, that "Prehistoric Park" will ever return for a second season, like "Primeval" has.moreless
  • Easily the best episode

    9.5
    Super Croc was easily the best episode of the oustanding Prehistoric Park.The Deinosuchus is a creature hardly any people have heard of.Yet it looks amazing in CGI glory.

    The episode took the scenery of Fraser Island,Australia to it's advantage and convinced you it was Texas 75 million years ago,where 50-foot,9 tonne Crocodiles hunted dinosaurs.



    But the Deinosuchus wasn't the only great thing about the episode.The Titanosaur herd goes on the rampage.Breking down the enclosures,resulting in Nigel being chased by Matilda the T-Rex.



    Prehistoric Park was an simply stunning series,and I hope that Impossible Pictures brings it back with a season finale to equal this.moreless
