Series 1 - Episode 3 Instinct



Actor Stephen Lang’s ultra-reasonable project leader Nathaniel Taylor is a neat contrast with his pugnacious, pumped-up colonel in Avatar, which this loudly fanfared series often resembles — visually, at least. Anyway, Taylor and his hothead new recruit Jim must defend the colony from a swarm of pterosaurs. It’s like the set-up of Primeval, but with the action anchored in the late Cretaceous period rather than the modern day.

Spicing up the human drama, Jim’s wife Elizabeth (token Brit Shelley Conn) bumps into an ex who, it seems, was behind her recruitment in the first place. So it seems everyone’s in a flap in this episode.


Taylor asks Jim to expose the Sixer mole, but a more pressing problem arises when three soldiers are found dead - their bodies ripped to shreds. Sci-fi drama, starring Jason O'Mara and Shelley Conn.
