I really have no idea how many people watch Primeval on BBC America. I probably wouldn't even know what it was if I hadn't seen a banner on the side of a city bus, and subsequently gotten in touch with someone at BBC America to get me some episodes on DVD, because I don't get the channel at home. But I'm glad I did, because it's a lot of fun, and probably has the biggest budget of any British television show, except maybe Doctor Who. The effects are pretty great, the actors aren't bad at all, and the stories are only mildly ridiculous. I reviewed the Volume 1 DVD set, with Series 1 and 2 on it, for TelevisionWithoutPity.com.
