I would really appreciate it if you would stop taking promising TV shows and making them suck. You did it with Torchwood (yes, I'm still pissed - that's irritated in American, not drunk - about the finale) and now you've done it with Primeval as well. If you could please stop:
a) overcomplicating the plots and
b) stupidly killing off characters I like
I would greatly appreciate it.
Both Torchwood and Primeval worked because the premise was simple. For Torchwood, a rift in the space time continuum made a lot of weird shit go down in Cardiff, so the members of Torchwood were there to step in and protect the regular people. For Primeval it was that portals to other times would open and dinosaurs would come through and cause trouble, so the Primeval team had to deal with them and get them back to where they belonged so as not to mess up evolution and timelines and such.
But then you start throwing in romances that don't make sense and conspiracies and bad guys that come out of nowhere, and nonsense about clones, and I start to lose interest. And have I mentioned the killing off of good characters in ways that do not seem to advance the story? Plus, and this may just be because you British don't do much with guns in general, but if I ended up on team dedicated to capturing and/or fighting aliens and dinosaurs, I'd get a gun and I'd learn how to shoot it. And maybe I'd practice being able to hit a target once in a while. The fact that these characters are always missing with their first shots is starting to get unbelievable. I bought it for the first episode or two, but now even your military guys seem to miss. Do you need a lesson from your American friends in good old fashioned ass kicking, shooting and blowing shit up? If so, I recommend Die Hard, Reservoir Dogs and Scarface. If you want to look closer to home, I refer you to Mr. Jason Statham's body of work, most particularly the Transporter and Crank.
I sincerely appreciate your attention to this important matter.
