Still reeling from Stephen's death and with the depth of Helen's betrayal now revealed, Nick Cutter must fight to re-focus his embattled team.

But as the anomalies continue to present an unrelenting series of threats, the task in hand seems almost insurmountable. It's not just deadly creatures the team has to contend with, they also face a threat to the future of not just the ARC but of mankind itself. Prepare for more explosive action as Primeval bares its newly sharpened teeth.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 1||When an exhibition of ancient Egyptian relics comes to London's British Museum, an anomaly opens in a mysterious monument called the Sun Cage. A creature emerges from it - a Pristichampsus, a kind of monstrous crocodile that can run on two legs. This creature, which comes from a past much more distant than the Egypt of the Pharaohs, somehow became worshipped as a God in that civilization, and is now portrayed in the hieroglyphics on the Sun Cage. The murderous creature wreaks havoc in the museum before escaping into the city. Helped by Sarah Page, the smart and surprisingly sexy archaeologist at the museum, Cutter and the team (Abby, Connor and their new Head of Security, Captain Becker) track it down and eventually defeat it - though not before Connor begins to believe in a legendary curse attached to the monument (in the style of Tutankhamun). He convinces himself he is next in line for the crocodile God's revenge. At the climax of the story, the Pristichampsus is safely deposited back into the past, where it retains its place in Egyptian mythology, but the anomaly turns out to be somehow permanently contained within the Sun Cage, so when the exhibition moves on to another city, the curse continues. At the end of the episode, Cutter asks Sarah to join the team and research mythical beasts that could, in fact, be creatures out of time and place.||43:45||$0.99||View In iTunes|

Season 3 is a disappointment!
What a let-down! Without Nick Cutter as a central character, Season 3 lacks the focus, energy, and excitement. Naturally, the producers had to develop other characters since Doug Henshall has left the series...but what a difference without him! I hope the show filmed several segments with Doug Henshall that they can use in future episodes (say, as flashbacks). Other disappointments...Jenny Lewis' appearance seems drab, her character has lost its spunk and chemistry with Nick Cutter, and her role doesn't seem PR-focused, but rather investigative. The power struggles over the ARC are tiresome and detract attention from what really attracts the international audience to the show--the anomalies and how the team handles the creatures that come out of them. Also, having a cop (Danny Quinn) take the place of a zoologist (Nick Cutter) seems like a misstep. I really liked this t.v. program and hadn't liked any program this much in a long time. What a shame that the part that I liked about it is finished.
*****spoiler alert!!!! It seems that when the main character, Nick Cutter (Douglas Henshall left), was killed, the series' direction got lost. The reason for it seemed forced and confusing. I enjoyed the chemistry of the cast more so than the plot lines, with Series 3 starting off after the death of Stephen Hart (James Murray), then Nick's death, and then Jenny Lewis (Lucy Brown left too) resigning, it was too much too soon. Stephen only died in the 13th episode (end of series 2), which to Americans is barely one season. I really enjoyed how the all characters interacted even evil Helen (Juliet Aubrey) and that is why I got hooked. That chemistry is gone in Series 3, the other characters brought in do not have it and the Connor/Abby (Potts/Spearitt) relationship is not enough. It also seems it was not enough for ITV as it was just canceled in June 2009. I am not sure if the movie rumors are true and if the original cast or storyline will be included.
A fun series. For a while I was only seeing shows like 24 and Lost. For me I enjoy shows that make me laugh as well as take me for a ride. This show, to me, is like a great combo of the X-Files and Jurassic Park. I enjoy Connor and Abby a lot. Though they seem to have no qualms about taking the previous story line and tossing it out the window (in the best way possible). It keeps me guessing. So for anyone who enjoys all around fun shows, I recommend.
