Sanctuary is on it’s way to Sci-fi


Taken from the splash page for it’s new show starring Amanda ‘Stargate’ Tapping Sanctuary

Sanctuary blazes a trail across the TV landscape with never-before-seen production technology. Starring Amanda Tapping, best known to fans as the brilliant Col. Samantha Carter onStargate SG-1Sanctuary is the first series to shoot extensively on green screen, using virtual sets and extraordinary visual effects.

Sanctuary follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus (Tapping), a brilliant scientist who holds the secrets of a clandestine population — a group of strange and sometimes terrifying beings that hide among humans.

Along with her new recruit, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), her quirky tech wiz Henry (Ryan Robbins) and her fearless daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup), Magnus seeks to protect this threatened phenomena as well as unlock the mysteries behind their existence. The series also stars Christopher Heyerdahl as the sinister John Druitt.

Now orginally this started out as a web only series last year and obviously someone decided it was worth making into a full blown TV series. Well, I’m here to give you the heads up that the series starts on the sci-fi channel on October 3rd.

The question now is whether this series is worth your time and I would say yes. I watched most of the web series and enjoyed it so I’m willing to give this a go. The premise is interesting and for a change different than some of the other stuff out at the moment. My reservation is that the webisodes were only 15-20 minues where as this wil be a full season of 45 minute episodes.

I’m just hoping the premise can sustain it’s potential through the first season.

    If Gemini Division was on TV, it might have been the first. That is, if Gemini Division was purely green screen. Most of it is.
