Primeval half term report...  
So it's about half way through the series and how's it going?

Well it's gone up from being ' a bit crap and CBBC really' to 'ah, this might have potential' so that can't be too bad. The last couple of episodes have had some more tension in them and that has worked in the show's favour. There's actually a sense of danger now which was missing before.

Douglas Henshall is still great and, too go down the shallow route, gets better looking with age. He's worth tuning in for every week alone.

The character Connor is an irritating twat played by a rather poor actor who gives geeks a bad name. I'm hoping that the end of season twist is him getting eaten.

Oh and note to the writers - I don't care how warm it is in their flat, or how hot you think she is, no normal girl goes and answers the door in her knickers and then proceeds to stand outside on what is essentially a main road.

It's been picked up for a second series so we'll see what improvements they make.

What they need to do is stop ripping off every other sci fi show going.

Little worm-things that bury into a person and then make their eyes glow? I believe that's been done.

And I'm not going to be able to watch next week's without screiking "Myfanwy!" every time we see a 'dactral.

Howard dubbed it "Primewhovalsgonewood" *snorts*

It's Connor's frends who really annoy me with their one dimensional geekness.

Oh goodness yeah. They're straight from the Big Book Of Character Clichés. Hopefully we won't see see the remaining one any more now.

You are so right about the whole 'Abby in knickers' thing the first time it happened I was okay about it, because she was just by herself in her flat but when she answered the door in her underwear twice I thought 'someone should buy her a pair of shorts' plus Connor starts living there and she still keeps walking around in her underwear - wtf? She must have a slight inkling that he likes her and since she doesn't like him wouldn't it make sense to put on a pair of shorts?
