Customer Reviews

Thanks iTunes!

I'm so glad iTunes finally added Sanctuary. It's a great show and if you're a sci-fi fan, I really think you'd like it. Like in the Stargate shows, the writers include actual historic events and ancient myths into the episodes, and it's really well done.

Terrific entertainment

It just gets better and better and by the time we get to Requiem we get to see what a great actress Amanda Tapping has it in her to be. Requiem is a tour de force for her. I don't understand being annoyed by other peoples accents - what's up with that? Is it xenophobia or what? In any case this show is Canadian made and draws actors from across the English speaking world. I found it atmospheric and if it hadn't been for Sanctuary my TV diet for June from Itunes would have been meagre. I can't wait for the next season - the story and the characters develop and grow as does the plot.

Slightly cheesy effects, slightly cheesy plots, great fun to watch.

The title of the review kind of says it all. Amanda Tapping does a decent if not perfect job on the British accent; I've heard worse in higher budget shows. (Much, much worse. Really. Anyone watched CSI NY first or second season? Yeah, the blond... ok, digress.) The effects are all CGI, so wherever there's a critter done in CGI there's a certain ammount of visual discontinuity; but the CGI sets are very nice indeed and the acting against the CGI stuff is absolutely fantastic. Seriously - the actors performing against a green screen or whatever they're working against do a STUNNING job. The plots are nothing new to anyone who reads dark fantasy, but hey, there's a hundred or so dark fantasy novels published a week; kind of hard not to use up the plot twists with that volume of output. And there's nothing in the genre on the TV market, so it'll be pretty fresh to the non-bookish crowd. All in all I liked it. I'll be watching it as an antidote to the heavy mental lifting of work and college, so it's not like I'm looking for War and Peace here. It's a nice, cute, monsters-and-twisty-plots sort of show.
