Never watched it.

Although many people regard it as rubbish, I greatly enjoyed it and will miss it, they will probably replace it with yet more junk reality or game shows. When you look at TV now so much is either soaps or dross.

I watched most of the series in the vain hope that it would improve but it was truly dire. The script seemed to be written by a children's co-operative on a wet afternoon in Cleckhuddersfax (the same one that writes Robin Hood). No great loss.

Well, well!

I would never have had you down as an incurable optimist!

Anyone who would fight a Balrog has to be an incurable optimist. I would have thought Primeval rather tame after that!!!

You are certainly more of an optimist than me, I normally like this type of science-fiction/fantasy stuff, but after a couple of views I couldn't stand the bad acting and poor scripts any more, no loss in my opinion

it was a toss up between Primeval and Robin Hood as to which programme received the 'biggest insult to the audience's intelligence' award.

In the end I think it's a dead heat.

Ah now you have mentioned it, RH was truly terrible

We gave up watching it halfway through the first series.
The historical inaccuracies were horrendous.
In one episode set in a gambling room, it was lit by what appeared to be a rectangular arrangement of pipework with GAS JETS, hundreds of years before gas was 'invented'
In another young lads were using catapults with RUBBER fitments...
And the obvious evidence of BRA STRAPS through the womens clothing....

You forget the State School system probably taught these scriptwriters History, either that or it was thought more "progressive" to screw around with an already semi ficticious character and create this pantomime. Come back Richard Greene.
