Primeval Thoughts...

So I've gotten into watching Primeval on Sci-Fi.

It's a decent show, with some decent action and FX. Of course, the fact that it's English gives it some automatic points. That, and Hanna Spearritt.

But what bugs me is that so far into Series 2 I have no idea what's going on, and I'm trying to keep myself from reading the episode summaries.

Here's what I've got so far.

Nick and his team have been locating anomalies and combating creatures from Earth's past. Helen [Nick's ex who apparently first discovered the anomalies years ago] has been at times helping the team and making their jobs harder.

After fighting a creature thought to be from the future, Nick comes back to a world that's apparently has never heard of Claudia Brown, their government liaison. She's been possibly replaced by Jenny Lewis, who looks exactly like her. Where before their team basically shared space in an office building, now they have almost unlimited resources.

But now they have problems. Somehow, Helen Brown is manipulating Oliver Leek, who has been dispatching teams early to anomalies, disabling their equipment and even hiring a woman to seduce[?] one of them for information.

My question is, to what end? Unless the next episode has a tone of denouement, I have no idea how this is going to be resolved.

And I just learned there's only a handful of episodes left. Crap.
