I have to admit that this is one of my least favourite episodes in the whole of Primeval, and really not a good one for Abby, for all that she's in it a lot.

This doesn’t actually sound like the best plan ever, and results in Sarah having a few close shaves and almost getting trampled, but she reaches the other side and finds Abby standing there looking amused at Sarah’s antics.

I never understood Abby being amused here, because Sarah seriously could have been killed if she'd been trampled. Okay, so perhaps Sarah overracted a bit to the rhinos moving around her, and and if she'd kept calmer she probably could have go through them without crawling around on the floor, but she's not an animal expert (and I'd probably have exactly the same reaction!), and I think Abby should have been more worried!

I'm not a massive fan of this one either. It mostly seems to exist to set up the finale, rather than having much of a story in its own right, and all the stuff with the embolotheriums seems designed to be funny, presumably to offset the angsty conversation at the start, and the serious situation at the end.

Unfirtunately, a lot of the 'funny' really isn't. Sarah (and Connor) could have been seriously hurt by the creatures. And what's more, there was absolutely no need for Abby and Sarah to move through the herd at all, because if they'd waited another two minutes the herd would have moved away of its own accord following the bull. It's a stupid scene, and yet nother series 3 writing/plotting/characterisation fail. Grrrrr!
