Primeval (TV series)

"Primeval" is a British TV series. I watched the first couple of seasons when it first came out and enjoyed them but for some reason I stopped watching.

I just started watching it again on Netflix streaming. I whipped through the first two seasons and enjoyed them and remembered them. I have fewer memories of the third season and I'm finding it harder to watch. It might be because they have killed off Cutter and Steven. And they are focusing more on political drama and less on monster of the week. I like monster of the week! Why can't people do a simple monster of the week show without all this plotting! I liked Cutter. I miss him. And dinosaurs what happened to the dinosaurs? The major draw of the show was the dinosaurs.

I also realized that "Primeval" doesn't pass the Bechdel Test most episodes. Which is weird since it has so many strong female characters. But they never talk to each other about anything but their relationships with the men. The female characters are flatter and less developed than the male characters.
