1x04 rewatch thoughts

Rewatching Primeval Episode 1x04 in my lunch hour. Seaoson 2 spoilers in the reaction post though.

Helen looks much younger in Season 1 with her hair. Wheee mention of Smilodon by nick after Helen's warning - wouldn't that mention probably coincide with the likely coming through of the cub raised and revealed in S2?

The Abby, Connor and Stephen stuff in this episode is good, mix of funny and angst. Ah Stephen's seen both of them in their underwear. Love the "nice legs" comment. Was nice to see Tom and Duncan again.

I want to know how they did some of the flying through air towards anomaly shots in the kitchen - some look plain like someone threw from offscreen but a few don't...

OMG I'd forgotten how much I loved the dodos! So cute bobbing about. Hee :D

Hmm Connor has a compass and it looks metal but it doesn't get pulled through - ooh actually he explain that a few seconds later with the anomaly weakening. Strange how no one sees the dead dodo as violent before it collapses - I know it was locked in a room for a while but presumalby it was in their with Nick too whilst he was discussing the situation earlier and playing a little with them and none showed any signs of odd behaviour.

Back to Tom and Duncan's conspiracy get rich quick scheme...That'd be "We'll be able to buy a 100 MP3 players" unless they meant all their MP3's are on one player only and not backedup, which would be stupid and besides you'd want a more impressive number if that was meant as 100 MP3's is a bit meh. And no you can't sell dodo sick on ebay - they have regulations against bodily fluids and parts.

-Ah geeks without naming abilities regarding "Dodie/Dody"
-Attack Dodos?! ROFL.

How could they tell that much detail about the lifecycle of the parasite from an autopsy of a dead dodo with the

Soon to be crispy dodo with the way it's chopping at the light bulb. Ah it's proto-Goauld parasite rolls eyes. Possessed people always have to have glowy eyes etc, but I admit blue is a nice change.

Haha, they're scared of horror films and a dead dodo.

Poor Tom. Claudia's comment on the infection potential so sounds like a zombie movie sort of scenario. Hmm, they know his mobile number - surprised they didn't try treacking him via it as films tend to. Ah he didn't stay on the phone long enough or something and great, he can track Connor - would've thouht Duncan might've mentioned the keyring and/or removed it though maybe he's too distracted by concern for his friend.

Nick's pretty trusting of Helen still, though that's Stephen's job more, with Stephen just doing as she instructed back in the kitchen.

Why is Abby there - ah more dod post mortems. You'd think they'd have a presence there in case there was an outbreak.

Lol to the doesn't get in trouble and WI get grouped in same line with CIA. Now the tracker comes up!

Of course the conspiracy theorist doesn't believe the truth. Wonder if the encounter with Tom gave Abby nightmares, he's getting pretty freaky by that point. Oh Abby, surely there's a codeword for when in trouble or do they not plan for anything remotely like this. Ah she does have a plan doesn't she? Oooh it's not the trap him in the freezer like I thought she might've tried. Hmm he shouts Abby but have they ever been introduced or did she tell him it to try to personalise herself with the crazy boy.

Aw, Connor's appealing to fight the darkside and his probably overtrust in Tom not hurting him. Nice to see thee's Ryan being sensible, though we got this scene for sentimentality with bonus Connor/Nick speach and hug.

With this coinciding with Conner moving into Abby's flat, why has there not been hurt/comfort fic for this!? Want some. :D This episode also had a lot of potential for Nick/Helen, Helen/Stephen and Nick/Claudia UST stuffs, can especially feel the Nick/Claudia tension. Loved Lester in this episode, they should give him more to do - him verus Helen is just plain fun.
