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

It was a series of webisodes that was touted as the world's first made for the net series.

I remember quite a few people on here bagging it, largely because they said the effects were not the level they wanted. It always amazes me that science fiction fans, who should be the most open to new things, are usually the most critical.

As I said, now all those same people will jump on the bandwagon and claim they followed the show "from the beginning".

Interesting enough, even if some of the reedits from the webisodes made it play a bit differently.

At first I thought the Daniel Jackson clone was the same guy who played the Daniel Jackson clone in Cube Zero, but I guess not.....

Watched it last night and I liked it. It was above average with lots of room for growth.

Was Dr. Zimmerman hitting on Helen? He kept implying that she looks to be in her mid-thirties and was shocked that she could have a 23 year old daughter.

It just seemed like an odd thing to say... esp. for a guy who is supposed to have amazing powers of perception or deduction.

Just watched this today. It was surprisingly good. I went in not expecting a heck of a lot. Will definitely be watching future episodes.

Above Average

Pretty much the same though annoyed how easy Ripper was defeated, I hope he returns to be a recurring villian otherwise total waste of plot cause he seemed like a cool bad guy.

Great to see so many SG people there but David needs to return as the wacky dude because he played it so well in the web episodes.

^ I'm sure he'll be back. He mentioned something about the other 3 (or was it 5?) coming. He's probably got clones or identical siblings running around out there.

Christopher Heyerdahl was credited as a regular, so hopefully we should be seeing alot more of him.
