Re: Sanctuary 1x01/02 - "Sanctuary for All" - Grading & Discussion

Seems okay so far. Definitely better than most of the crap I usually see on SciFi. I'm off right now, but I'll catch the rest when they rerun it later in the night.

Dee From Battlestar Galactica got a new gig in this show. I am still mad she dumped Billy the "nice guy" though.

Poor Siler always gets hurt. At least he didn't get it from the Goauld.

So far this is okay. It's going to be hard to come up with a new Abnormal every week though.

hmmmmm so far i must say that this show has potential. I hope the nect hour keeps to the beat its been going at.

the only negative for me is the fake british accent

its not quite british enough...and being that its Amanda Tapping your not used to the accent, it seems forced but as it gones on its acceptable.

This show's premire may get an Excellent out of me yet

Doesn't seem like they're using the "Green Screen" aspect anymore.

I like the look of it. Glad to see they kept most of the same actors in their roles. Guess we'll have to see where this goes as many scenes have already been altered.

I missed the first few minutes and came in on the Cops finding the boy under the bed. What did I miss?
Actually, they are using green screen. They just have more money now.

You didn't miss anything other than the cops bursting into the apartment.

I thought this show looked really bad but if you guys say it's good I'll give it a gander on iTunes or on a repeat.

He is Daniel! He tried to tell the world about something that was the truth and no one believed him - except her.

So was the guy with the tablet pc a Rodney knockoff?

Amanda Tapping was born in Britain so I don't think the accent is as forced as you think it is and IMO it's a nice gentle accent.

I knew that, its just she played Samantha Carter for what? 11 years I think. Thats a non brti character and by living and working in Vancover I would exspect one to lose their natural accent or atleast weaken it. She seems to slide in and out of it from time to time but as the show went on i can see her getting more used to it.

That's exactly what I was thinking - Will *is* Daniel. And Henry seems like a cross between Rodney and Greg Sanders from CSI.

He even looks like Dr. Jackson I was thinking when they first showed him "What? Couldn't afford Shanks?"

Same here. It's a lot like a spiritual sucessor to Stargate, but is very much its own show.

ETA: What did she do to him? Whatever it is, it's probably going to bite her in the ass.
