Primeval

Postby IanBruntlett » Sun May 10, 2009 5:37 pm

For those outside the UK, Primeval is a modern times time travelling and dinosaurs adventure series on ITV.

It would be nice to have an S&P article/scenario about a Traveller / Primeval setting.

And if that's not enough... how about an Ashes to Ashes thing? With the time period changed, of course:)

Just for reference Primeval is available outside the UK as well. Now the SciFi channel is carrying the first season. BBCA (BBC America) carried it as well.

Not just dinosaurs.

I wasn't watching it until I realized exactly what it was. My first episode was the one before the Raptor in the Mall ep. It is a great series. I just hope the series doesn't come to an abrupt end or abruptly end with a cliffhanger.

A campaign book using Traveller would be fantastic!

And now the show has been axed.

Fan bloody tastic. :( I hear the sound of some ITV execs shooting themselves in the foot, as others cut off their noses to spite their faces.

Get something good and so they cancel it. Probably to be replaced by some remake or reality...

Tell me about it. :(

While risking topic slippage here, I'd like to point out that I only ever watched ITV for this show. When Primeval was not on, I never watched ITV. There's nothing else on that channel remotely interesting at all.

And now, I guess there never will.

Now, back to the topic at hand - coming up with game rules for Primeval. I suggest that everything you need is to be found in the pages of Book 4: Psion. You just need to tweak the rules a little.

I'll continue discussing politics of the ITV viewer elsewhere. I'm only going to say here that I am disappointed by the news.

God blast it! What is it with time travel shows? They never, ever seem to last long enough (I'm looking at you Time Cop & Time Trax).

You know, I'm glad I made the decision to not buy dvds of any shows that get the axe too early and/or end in a cliffhanger (Sliders being the exception).

Deliberately being vague about what that means. Will there be a SF element, or will it just be The Bill with swearing and violence, and the return of Footballers' Wives and Bad Girls with more coy pretend shagging and more swearing and violence?

Regarding Primeval

Postby Hopeless » Tue Oct 19, 2010 2:37 pm

Thought I heard they're planning a new season or two of this seen on you tube clips that definitely don't look part of previous seasons with the pair returning to the present and confonted by Arc soldiers.

Anyone else hear anything?

I'm writing a licensed Primeval RPG for Cubicle 7; it's using the same system as Dr. Who, and it'll be out next year.
