    this episode was a good for to introduce new team. One of Evan friend in this reality is the frozen ARC member. Though since the series got allready canceled no reasons to follow for the Sheldons of the world that get frustrated with big cliff that will never be resolved
  • Will we see the return of Danny Quinn?

    I want to keep watching just to see who the ice-man was (though I can't quite work out why the heck - or how - Evan Cross froze him). At first I thought it was Connor, and maybe it still is, but then I thought maybe it's Danny! Or Becker... He seemed to have dark hair, which seemed to rule out Danny or Matt... But maybe it's Abby, with dyed hair, and that's why Connor's come all by his lonesome. Too many questions. Must. Keep. Watching. (I'll be pissed if they use this to rope those of us who love the UK series into watching this one, but never actually explain any of it).



    I wish there had been a little more of Connor in this episode, though. I kept waiting for him to save the day and was overwhelmingly disappointed when he just didn't show up on camera again. I wish they'd reboot the UK series, and maybe have the two working in conjunction. THAT would be amazing. One thing I wasn't too keen on was the explanation of Evan Cross's obsession with the anomalies - I knew he'd have a wife that was lost somehow, but that was very reminiscent of Cutter at the beginning of the original series. But then, I should probably stop comparing the two series. More Connor please! And there had better be an Abby entrance at some point!moreless

    I really enjoyed this episode, but I wonder who from the ARC team was frozen in Evans walk in fridge. It was great to see Connor, and if the Brit version isn't continuing it would be great to see Connor join then new Vancouver team. They could tie it in by saying we Canadians are part of the commonwealth so he is just transferring to a new team.

    Didn't expect it to fantastic straight of the bat, but it was really good. The little part Connor played was great but I'd hoped he'd done more. I'm hoping Evan Cross will find out who he really is.
  • Lack some of the cleverness of the original

    5.0
    I must say I think this is kind of weak for a first episode of a new series. Even if it's a spin-off leaning onto the original Primeval I think it is kind of lacking. The first episode of a show should in my opinion drag you in (screaming and kicking) so you want to see the next episode, but I don't feel that here. I will watch the next couple of episode but mostly just to see if it gets better or not.



    They have copied the concept and the filming style pretty well but I lack the witty dialogue of the original show, and that what I can only describe as cleverness of the story.moreless
