A bad tv start of 2011

I was meeting Uncle Larry at our regular meeting spot and showed me a how to get to the first episodes of Primeval season 4. Nothing out of the ordinary you'd think. But, I didn't even see 1.01 and this series has been going for over 3 years now? Well, I thought, that must be at least a decent tv series that sounds like it's about dino's etc. And if you take into account how many good series have been cancelled last year.....

45 minutes of 'meh' later told me I was wrong.
Take a look at this short summary trailer.

Now tell me with a straight face that you are eager to watch episodes full of awesome.

I watch a lot of crap, and to be honest, I like a lot of it even though half the world thinks it isn't worth clicking play, for even 5 minutes. But this was at least as bad as the Lost world series (remember this.) and the Lost world has an 'untamed beauty' in it that runs around half naked.
So, I sincerely promise myself not to watch 1.02 unless I'm really bored out of my skull.

Did I only watch crap today? No.
I started 'Breaking Bad' this week and that's quit good. And out of new years day groggyness I watched Micmacs A tire larigot (on dvd) and that's still awesome. It's in French though, but I had Dutch subtitles and I'm sure there are English ones out there.

I've never seen an episode of Primeval but I tell you what, that trailer almost makes me want to check it out - that looks like my kind of shit!

Actually it's interesting that you posted about that because late last night I saw the end of a movie called Anonymous Rex which is about how dinosaurs live amongst us disguised as humans and two of them investigate murders and...

I just couldn't believe it was an actual real movie but wikipedia confirmed it :)

It looked a lot worse than Primeval did in that trailer though!
