PRIMEVAL SERIES 5 MUST SEE TV AND AN IRISHMAN JUST SAVED THE WORLD

LAST NIGHT SAW A SERIES COME TO FRUITION. IT’S TAKEN THEM 4 SERIES BUT THE WRITERS HAVE FINALLY MADE PRIMEVAL THE SHOW TO WATCH. IT’S COME A LONG WAY FROM ITS HUMBLE BEGINNINGS AS A DINO OF THE WEEK SHOW.

THE CAST CHANGE HAS BEEN FOR THE BETTER WITH IRISHMAN MATT, PLAYED BY CIARAN MCMENAMIN, NOW FIRMLY IN THE LEADING MAN ROLE AND HE JUST SAVED THE WORLD. ABOUT BLOODY TIME.

THE TEAM NOW CONSISTS OF ORIGINALS ABBY AND CONNOR ALONG WITH LESTER AS THEIR SARCASTIC BOSS AND THEY ARE JOINED BY EMILY, A VICTORIAN LADY AND MATT, A MAN FROM THE FUTURE TRYING TO PREVENT THE CATASTROPHE THAT IS FUTURE EARTH, FULL OF TOXIC WINDS AND MUTANT PREDATORS. THIS IS THE TEAM WE SHOULD HAVE, MIXING THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.

THEIR MISSION NOW WAS TO STOP BILLIONAIRE PHILIP FROM ACTIVATING NEW DAWN AT A CRITICAL MOMENT WHEN THE ANOMALIES CONVERGE AS PART OF THEIR NATURAL LIFE CYCLE. TOO LATE, THE MACHINE WAS ACTIVATED, STORM CLOUDS GATHERED AND CONNOR WAS PLUNGED INTO A NIGHTMARE FUTURE. NEVER HAS THE CAST WORKED SO WELL AS THEY RACE TO PREVENT THE END OF THE WORLD. THE EFFECTS ARE PARTICULARLY STUNNING THIS TIME WITH GIANT ANOMALIES AND WOODLICE. THE CONNOR/ABBY ARC WORKED WELL BEFORE BRINGING THEM BACK TOGETHER AS MATT SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO SAVE THE WORLD ONLY TO WALK FREE AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED.

BUT THE FINAL JOYOUS TWIST WAS A SECOND SCARRED MATT TELLING HIS PRESENT SELF HE HAD TO GO BACK TO THE FUTURE.

WHY? I CAN’T WAIT TO FIND OUT.

PARTICULAR CREDIT GOES TO BEN MILLER AS LESTER WHO SHOOTS A MONSTER FOR TOIUCHING HIS CAR AND SINGULARLY GETTING ALL THE BEST PUT DOWNS AND ONE LINERS WHILE CONVEYING A DEEP LOVE AND LOYALTY TO HIS TEAM THAT SEEMS MORE POIGNANT THAN EVER. ADD THE FACT THAT PHILIP’S PLAN WAS MANIPULATED BY HELEN CUTTER WAS A FANTASTIC TWIST AND ALL THE MORE MENACING AS HELEN’S VOICE HAUNTS PHILIP AS HE MAKES THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE AND DESTROYS NEW DAWN TO SAVE CREATION.

THIS SHOW HAS GROWN FROM SOMETHING ENTERTAINING TO UNMISSABLE.

THE WRITERS HAVE PUSHED THE BARRIERS WITH THE ANOMALIES BEING MORE OF A THREAT THEN WE KNEW, REAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND EMOTIONAL TRAUMA, MONSTERS USED INTELLIGENTLY AND GREAT IDEAS LIKE RAPTORS IN VICTORIAN LONDON, SPRING HEELED JACK, SUBMARINES TRAVELLING IN TIME AND THE MANIPULATION OF CONNOR ALL SHOW THIS SHOW HAS REALISED ITS OWN POTENTIAL AND IS AIMING HIGHER HAN EVER. PLEASE GUYS KEEP IT UP AND MAKE THE NEXT SERIES EVEN BETTER.

SUPERB.
