Sadly not the episodes title, but my thoughts on this new “multimillion pound, big budget” production from ITV. This is why I don’t watch ITV1. This is why I shouldn’t watch shows with girls from S Club 7 in them, however fit they are. This is why, this is why. The plot revolves around dinosaurs coming through a time portal… yes thats right, much like the one in that program from last Autumn/Summer/Whenever, Prehistoric Park.
What is ITV’s deal with time portals and dinosaurs? Has the CGI technology just become cheap enough for them to base whole program concepts around? well stop it now, the effects were crap. Worse than you can possible imagine. I’m talking slightly better than the stop motion of Clash of the Titans.
The acting was just as bad, and the cast was decent so I can only think that it was the strain of acting against bluescreens, or nothing, that made their performances so poor. The script didn’t help. Some of the dialogue was terrible. One of the characters (the supposedly cool one) saying to a dinosaur “Pick on someone your own size” stands out as particularly bad.
The good news? I’m telling you all this so if you didn’t watch it, you know to steer well clear next week. So there. I am about to watch Harry Hill and Charlie Brooker just to ease the pain and erase the memories of this poop show. I won’t be giving it another chance.
