audio with Primeval cementing this fact. The image quality is
outstanding with bright colours, deep blacks and some rather impressive
special effects. Audio is on par with the video with crystal clear
dialogue and some great sound effects thrown into the mix. With a
recommended retail price of $39.95, Primeval the Complete Series Four
runs for a whopping 394 minutes and if you enjoyed the series on TV and
are a purist than this is a must have collection or for those who may
have missed out the first time on TV.
Definitely a series for the fan
boys and girls!
