Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Primeval: New World is a drama featuring relatively realistic CGI dinosaurs looming over, menacing, chasing and attacking people, including young children. Victims may be killed in attacks, and though deaths happen offscreen we hear ripping noises and growls and then later see gory dead bodies with injuries like severed arms and ripped-open innards. There is some mild cursing and references to drinking. Cast members we've grown sympathetic towards may be killed suddenly, and the ever-present threat of dinosaur attack may be too stressful for young viewers. Teens are probably old enough to withstand the fright and gore and may enjoy the monster-movie aspect of the show, but parents will be turned off by the stock characters and silly dialogue.
All major cast members are young, cute, and single so expect flirting and dating.
Helpless humans, including young children, are menaced and chased by giant, somewhat realistic dinosaurs. Viewers will see dead bodies, many with gory injuries such as ripped off limbs or torn-open chest cavities, which the camera lingers over.
Some enthusiastic cursing ("Let's kick prehistoric ass!") as well as angry epithets ("What the hell are you doing in here?").
Primeval: New World is a spinoff of long-running British sci fi show Primeval; viewers may want to watch the original after seeing Primeval: New World.

Some references to drinking: "I need a drink" and "I owe you a beer."
