Oh Hell No: Primeval Cancelled in the UK!

I’m sure you’ve all heard the news about Primeval. ITV has cancelled the show.

Are they crazy? They killed what could have been a cash cow on any other network. Merchandising, licensing, a new film franchise? How could they fumble that?

Was it Cutter’s death that did it?

I have one hope in all of this: may ITV execs have their ears nibbled by a Giganotosaurus.

The apocalypse is nigh, y’all.

The good news is that you’ll be able to watch Primeval to its conclusion right here on BBC AMERICA – Saturday nights at 9/8c. I haven’t watched the final episode, but here’s to hoping that they tied up everything well. (For you Brits who have seen the finale, please refrain from posting spoilers in the comments section.)

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
