I can't get beyond her accent, I'm afraid. No love here.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

The problem with not going over the top, then playing it straight, is that the Abnormals premise is already silly. It's very much like SG1 that way. It's just not possible to start with such nonsense then pretend it's all serious. For my part, Sanctuary realizes this, goes over the top to entertain us, the audience, while the characters take it seriously. For the characters to show their tongues in their cheeks, well, you can't speak clearly while you're making a face.

I've been enjoying the show since it started, for the most part anyway.

I still miss Ash though.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

I watched the two hour pilot, but I was nearly bored to tears. I've seen worse shows, but never ones so unbearably dull before. I tried watching the third episode to see if the show improves, but I couldn't make it through 10 minutes. Awful, awful show.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

Sanctuary suffers from an inability to maintain interesting story-lines for the long haul. The occasional plot-line does amazingly well and then is left to die. At its highest point, I thought this show would become another of my favorite shows, but it quickly deteriorated back into boredom for long periods.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

It's fun and I enjoy the way I enjoy Lost World or Relic Hunter, I don't need it to be perfect.

I enjoyed the first season a bit better, it had it's own style and a subtle creepyness. I found the second season focused a little too much on gun fights for the sake of gun fights. I can see car chases on any show.

I don't miss Ash, I found her pretty one-dimensional, although John had kind of pointed that out so sort of intentional. I like Kate better, she has an actual personality and likes and dislikes. I miss John. I find Nicola a hoot.

Mediocre CGI and lots of stock footage bought off the internet (or made from clip art) it's a low budget production that is just a bit of fun. It has good and bad episodes just like Trek.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

I thought it showed a lot more promise when it was a web series, Would have loved to have seen more of David Hewlett character. But when it got picked up by scifi it seemed to lose something.
I think I was expecting something a little darker.

This I'll agree with. The Web series was just better. They changed too much, probably in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

I've enjoyed the show, but when is it back? These weird Syfy breaks throw me off.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

Am I the only one who wanted Druitt & Tesla to become major characters?

I love it when they mix literary history with real life ala League of Extraordinary Gentleman, but they keep backing down from taking that one extra step.

I think I'll keep watching the new season, but unless they can give me better plots than, we've got the save this creature because it'll die otherwise, or it'll kill otherwise, or it'll be destroyed, or it'll destroy everything... I don't think I'll be coming back again after this year.

Of course I say that, and yet I still plan on watching Smallville next season.

Tesla to some extent, but definitely Druitt. I think they need to get him back more

For me its becoming one of the shows I will not always watch straight away, I'll save it for when I have nothing to do at the weekend.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

Tesla and Druitt are both excellent characters. Based on the events of last Season, I suspect we'll be seeing more of them this year.

Re: Sanctuary... No love in the forums?

I was never an Amanda Tapping fan, so she doesn't excite me by being in the show. The show just isn't very exciting. I don't hate it, but I just don't care enough to watch it.
