I think Primeval has indeed improved slightly: one bit made me actually laugh at the humour of it, rather than simply at it, and another bit actively made me go "URGH!" (but let's face it, someone was tasting bird crap - that's an URGH every time).

Plus the fandom doesn't really appear psycho or anything (unless you go to the ITV forums, where they're all as creepy as fuck).

Claire Buckfield ended up in the final of Dancing on Ice. What utter shit! She should have gone out last week in place of Lee, because basically, she can't fucking skate. She's always clinging onto her partner, barely does anything on her own and spends half her time either whining or crying.
Emily, who got voted out today, had a couple of weeks of bad performances because she lost her nerve, but had finally regained it today and produced a stellar performance, which got voted lower than Claire's for no apparent reason. One bizarre criticism was that "she lands with two feet instead of one", but when you watched the replays you could see that it simply was not the case. The only time she landed on two feet was when landing on one would have broken her ankle...
Claire even got voted higher than Duncan, who also put in a great performance.


I still hope Kyran wins though. But I never thought I'd see someone breakdancing on ice to Billie Jean...

I absolutely agree with you about the humour of the show the bit with the banter between the two golfers was hilarious (but isn't it just typical that the minority character was the first to die - or am I being a touch over sensitive and it's just karmic payback for lying to his friend about being on the green?)And what skeleton was that in the pond I couldn't make it out? Also funny was the bit after they tranquilise the pterodactyl and it knocks out Claudia and Stephen goes "oops!" Hee-hee! Didn't Cutter notice the chimney when he left Claudia in that room? Loved Helen being the one who saved her but where did she come from? If she came from the sky anomaly how did she get back? Can't wait for next week!

Re: Primeval
Hee, I think all golfers tend to lie about being on the green or in the bunker - I think it's more along the lines of the old tactic 'the one you like the most has to die the most dramatically'. As to the skeleton, I'm not sure either... I can only assume they were foreshadowing and we'll see the owner next week.

I think what made me laugh the most about Stephen's comment was that he seemed completely unconcerned for her. XD

I think the chimney was there so they could make reference to the Hitchcock film 'The Birds', which has a very similar scene in it, although... not with a golf club. O_o

XDXD You just reminded me, my mother actually said much the same thing! But her solution was a bit weird: she reckoned that by the time they got back to the anomaly, they'd find Helen bouncing up and down trying frantically to jump through it. XD It sounds odd, but the mental image has me sniggering... Quite tempted to try fanficcing it!

I'm pretty disappointed it's the last ep next week! Still, at least there'll be another series... eventually. :/

I bet she has some special kind of gizmo which can open an anomaly to any time she wants.

Another fav bit for me in this ep was when Connor show's his pass to the special ops guys and goes 'all access pass' he's such a geek.

Yeah it's the last ep on Sat but at least the DVD comes out next Monday woo-hoo!!!
