    If I read the tea-leaves correctly, the first episode will air both in the UK and the US on Saturday, but the second will air in the UK on Sunday and the US the following Saturday, and the US will thereafter be a week behind.

    I guess a week behind is better than months behind!

    When you're dealing with time travel, you have ways to deal with an unpleasant outcome in the current continuum.

    Unless you're a Terminator.

    I hope this show refocuses itself on showing Abby running around in her panties every other episode like it did in its first season.

    I watched season 1 and 2 but stopped at the start of season 3 when I found out it was canceled and that there wasn't a real ending to the series. So I would like to know what episodes of season 3 are really necessary to watch in order to understand whats going on?

    FYI: All 3 seasons of Primeval can be streamed using Netflix.

    It's like they want people to pirate it. Seriously. In an Internet-connected world, what possible logic is there in such a schedule? (I could as well ask what logic there was to it in the pre-Internet world, for that matter.)

    There could be different sets of competing programming in the US and UK that they'd be up against otherwise and want to avoid. Or there are other country specific viewer trends that mean their target demo is more likely to watch on one night vs. another. Perhaps the BBC in one country has more lucrative programs to run that don't exist in another, and they don't want to 'waste' a better programming slot on a show that was already cancelled once?

    I think I can wait a week to watch it. And if it's available from Amazon VOD in HD I will be watching it from there anyway like I do with Doctor Who.

    Hopefully one day FiOS will get the HD version of BBCA.

    I see Amazon does have it available in HD. I should have waited but instead I watched it in SD last night. From now on I will wait for it to be available on Amazon since I know they will have them now. I just wish the Amazon HD TV show prices were a little lower.

    Or better, that FiOS would get BBCA-HD.

    Fios' SD picture on BBCA is pretty good IMHO, and I can Zoom it since the show is letterboxed. (Oddly the Netflix presentation of Series 3 is 4:3. I remember it as being letterboxed on BBCA.)

    Yeah, SD is all I have and the picture looked pretty decent. For SD.

    I noticed that you can't (at least as of right now) buy a series pass on Amazon for season 4. Normally they have series passes available at a 10% discount (so $2.84 per episode for the HD) and they can be automatically delivered to a PC (in my case my media center). I hope that's just an oversight. The discount is nice, but the convenience of not having to remember to go download the show every week is really why I do series passes.

    Thrilled that they retained Connor and Abby. They are the show for me.

    What happened to their pet?

    Can't recall how Sarah was killed. Anyone remember?

    Has anyone heard if Danny will come back through, too?

    Any speculation about the secret agenda with the mystery man and the new head of the team?
