Painfully stupid stories of an MI-5 organization versus CGI monsters. This program went on a few more seasons -- without getting any better, and also without answering this important question: how and why are the British public not told they are being invaded by dinosaurs?

A few interesting characters, and an interesting premise for a series. But overall, this suffers from bad scripts, bad writing, and so-so acting. Just plain boring.

This is a 4 disc set - disc 3 and 4 are damaged and causes the dvd player to freeze up

This series, if given the chance, should be amongst famous cult classics such as buffy, star wars, dr. who and firefly. The graphics get far better as it goes along, so don't watch the first episode and give up.

Season 3 is the best. Seasons 4 and 5 are lacking, but I won't spoil the reason why. Still an enjoyable watch despite.

The QUOTES are absolutely hilarious and worth it even if you think the monsters are cheesy, which in most cases, they are, but I loved it to death anyway.
I'll post some quotes.

How come the U.K. is so good at making great science fiction shows? If you are a fan of Torchwood you will like this one too - it's exciting, imaginative, suspenseful, sometimes funny and always entertaining. Excellent!

Better than you typical Si-Fi channel movies.

A surprisingly decent series that develops into a tale a cut above the usual juvenile fare that is offered as sf / fantasy on TV. The overall story is character - driven, with a lot of surprising plot twists as hidden agendas among the various factions dealing with the time incursions are revealed. Yes, the acting could be a bit better. Technical effects are good but not the best (budget, I assume). Overall, see it if you like science fiction.

I liked it very much. It's a new take on time travelling and Jurassic Park-y stories that seem to be popping up over the last few years, with plenty of Brit sarcastic jokes to keep it lighthearted and fast paced at the same time.

Connor: Me? Terrified of being trapped in a shopping centre, with brain eating zombies. [Makes zombie noises] Imagine.

Sarah: But that's unlikely to happen, isn't it Connor?

Connor: Hey, I'm trying to work with you here, woman.

Connor: Where's my gun? Abby's got one!
Stephen: She knows how to use it.
Abby: How many animals have you tranquillized?
Connor: I've played darts! Sometimes I think you don't trust me with firearms!
Stephen: Don't know what gives you that idea.

We may stand on the brink of Armageddon, but at least we have an irritating student on our side. How reassuring.
