Entertainment One has announced the Blu-ray release of Primeval: New World - The Complete Series, the 13-episode Canadian spin-off of the five-season British sci-fi television series. New World stars Niall Matter, Sara Canning, Danny Rahim, Crystal Lowe, Miranda Frigon and Geoff Gustafson, and streets on October 22nd.
Synopsis: Evan Cross (Matter), a wealthy and brilliant innovator, leads a diverse team that operates from a secret and cutting edge headquarters called the Tank. From this highly sophisticated precinct, the team operates a top-secret warning system that allows them to find temporal anomalies and track the prehistoric creatures that come through. Now the race is on to find the various beasts before they find the unsuspecting public.
Tech specs and special features for the 3-disc Blu-ray set have yet to be detailed.
As a Canadian I wish I could recommend this series but I can't. It's an embarassing production that even uses a very recognisable local hardware/auto parts store for one of its episodes (free advertising for a full hour!). Pass on it if you liked the much better Brit series and have any sense.
I didn't know it had been cancelled... but it doesn't totally surprise me. the original British was a lot better, but atleast this one wasn't a remake like with most things and actually tried to continue the original, just in another country.
Never heard of this show. It actually seems pretty cool. But after looking it up, it appears that there are 5 seasons of the original Primeval, and I don't want to get this without watching those. And they have the last 3 seasons only on blu ray I believe. I'd love a complete collection on blu
i really like this show, i started watching it when syfy started airing the episodes and now the last 2 weeks they haven't aired it. i was pissed to find out that it was already canceled before it was aired in the u.s. but i still wanna own it as i have loved all the primeval episodes. i hope this will be on dvd as well.
