He explains it's premise is creatures escaping from the past to the present via an Anomaly. He says it's very frightening and that the special effects in Primeval are fantastic, well most of the time. The scene cuts to Abby holding Rex where Harry shouts "IT'S A PUPPET!" (Rex is actually CGI). Harry then holds a puppet of Rex. When he asks Rex if he's alright, Rex spits in his eye, Harry calls him "Spit the Dinosaur".

  • Harry calling Rex a puppet is obviously a joke on how Abby holds him, as he is actually CGI.
  • The nickname of "Spit the Dinosaur" is technically incorrect, as Rex's species, the Coelurosauravus, is actually a type of reptile home to the Permian period, before the Mesozoic era in which Dinosaurs originate.
  • Also, the fact he referred to the Mosasaur as a "Croc" is also incorrect. Although the Mosasaur looks very similar to a Crocodile, they are unrelated.
  • It is currently unknown whether Harry has made jokes on Primeval Series 2 and 3. He didn't included clips from Series 4 in TV Burp as the first episode of Series 11 started on the same day as the last episode of Series 4.
