Who's up for some NerdRage?

Or at least some NerdFrustration.

So I decided to try out a few episodes of Primeval: New World. I was a big fan of the original series and was curious if Niall Matter could handle a series lead after his supporting role on Eureka.

I don't know if I can load up episode 2, much less the rest of the series.

I'm gonna kind of delve into the weeds of the show, so be warned.

Go to Cute Overload and coo at some puppies if you get bored.

If we're to accept that these two shows share the same world, I am absolutely stunned that Connor wants to simply shut down any dealings with anomalies. First off, it appears that they're no longer limited to England. [Of course, that could simply be for budgetary reasons]

Was he that shaken by Prospero and New Dawn that any danger posed by the anomalies is simply an acceptable loss? People are getting chomped up left and right, but as long as no one's making a fool of Connor Temple, too bad so sad.

And that final scene, where we see that Evan has the body of an ARC soldier on ice and [until Connor took it away] what looked like a portable anomaly detector. He found them after stumbling on to an anomaly and losing his wife/girlfriend to a dinosaur attack.

That just doesn't make any sense.

Are there more than one ARC? Or is it from the future? Does that mean when an anomaly is open, it's accessible from all points in time, but only in one direction?

I'd appreciate any feedback on this. I could simply be too harsh a judge.
