Re: Sanctuary 1x03 - "Fata Morgana" - Grading & Discussion

I just figure the accent is one of those strange blends of dialects you get when you're 165 years old. Really, if that's the most you have to complain about, you're doing pretty well.

Don't get me wrong. I quite liked the web series quite a bit and the pilot. I just think the accent has to go.

Oh, I agree. I think this show is pretty good.

I'm enjoying it.

I've noticed the greenscreening being better as well. When they were on the scraper framing I expected to see them bouncing up and down slightly but it looked fine.

Worse, like the new Knight Rider, for example. It is also much better than Painkiller Jane and Flash Gordon.

I don't think I would notice the green-screening as much if I wasn't looking for it.

Well, I don't think you'll get much argument there

Regarding the green screening, I don't think it's too bad myself, I like the production design as well.

You are right about the accent, although I stand by my comments in general. I think this triumvirate they've set up seems quite contrived to me as well, and the characters are pretty lifeless. So there's good and there's bad.

I think the chemistry in the cast will pick up. So far, they've been treading over ground already covered in the webisodes. If you check those out, I actually think you'll find the acting a little better.

Eh, this is my last episode. Had some hope after the pilot, but it's gone down hill quicker than I'd imagined. The guy with the glasses is just whiny, annoying, and dumb. He doubts everything, yet has seen mind blowing things week after week.

Hot blond can't save it for me.
