So.

SPACE(Canadian channel for my fellow Americans) is making a Primeval spin-off titled Primeval: New World. It entered production recently, so everyone in the news/blogs is picking it up.

IDK how I feel about this. On one hand, Niall Matter(!) and Sarah Canning in a Canadian version of Primeval. On the other hand, a spin-off of Primeval that isn't likely to mention the original. It could be worse: they could be out-and-out calling it a remake.
I guess I'll be giving it a go when it hits the air. If only to see Niall on my screen after Eureka(which I'm still not over, BTW).

I saw the info about that a few months ago. I might give it a look. If it just goes along with the universe of Primeval and doesn't try to act like a remake of the UK one, I'd be more apt to watch every week.

they've said that it is likely to mention the original, and there was something, somewhen about possible cameos or original cast members popping up. It's being done by Adrian Hodges so I can't imagine it would get completely ignored. It's not going to be like Being Human US where you guys took our show, remade the episodes in a crappy way and then called it 'original drama'...

If there is a chance of a Jess and Becker cameo where they confess their love for another then I'm there, LOL

Being Canadian and knowing firsthand the general quality of Canadian programming, I don't have super high hopes for it. (Although one of our broadcasters had a hand in the first season of DW, so maybe I am just being cynical.) However, I'm totally going to watch it, even if I only last an episode or two, soooo....

But I really don't think it'll have the same charm (because shows about dinosaurs are charming? WHAT IDK) without all the adorable people and their accents.

I heard about this this morning. And now you're telling me Niall is going to be on it? AJKSJHDKJFHSDJHD
I never followed the UK version faithfully. An ep here and there and I liked it, but never totally got into it. I hate remakes for US tv when the original is so good, so I should hate the premise of this, but.. NIALL!!!

And ditto on Eureka. Idiots.
