imageMerlin (2008)

  • details link icon UK reference link
  • Ranking: icon great design, good animation | concept | writing
    Cool design and nice animation (except for human interaction in the first season or two) of a great variety of fantasy creatures (especially the main dragon) enhance the good acting and story.
imagePrimeval (2007)
  • details link Framestore icon UK reference link
  • Ranking: icon great design, good animation | concept | writing
    Interesting characters/story with nice creature design/animation/live-integration (inconsistently mixed with some weak work); improves with each season. However, Seasons 4 and 5 lose their appeal with weak writing and limited creatures.
