  • Summary: Sanctuary, the first broadcast caliber Sci-Fi series developed specifically for the Internet and the first to be filmed entirely on Green Screen, stars Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, one of the first female doctors in the Royal College during Victorian England. Dr. Magnus takes over her fathers' sanctuary for supernatural creatures, collected from all over the world. In her work with these creatures, Dr. Magnus has received age longevity. She is joined by her daughter Ashley, played by Emilie Ullerup, and young psychiatric resident Dr. Will Zimmerman, played by Robin Dunne, who may have what it takes to become her new protégé.

    In 2008, Sanctuary was picked up by the SciFi Channel and rebooted the series in 60 minute form with the pilot "Sanctuary for All." On November 12, 2008, Sanctuary was renewed for a 13 episode second season.

    I love this show - have always been a big fan of Amanda Tapping (from her old SG-1 days, as well as SGA season). The format for the show is interesting from a technical standpoint, and although it wasn't exactly clear where the series was going with its plot in the very beginning, it straightened itself out during the 1st season. The 2nd season furthered this along, and we've been enjoying the treasure hunt (for lack of a better term) in this latest season. Hopefully the SF-FY channel will continue with this type of programming as this is what attracts those of us who would much rather watch true science-fiction than reality or blood-n-gore TV shows.
