This series of episodes are actually not bad. However, after a while you do get tired of it. Shot in BC and well acted, it may interest those with a mind for sci-fi, monsters and mutants.

I think I'm just too old to appreciate this (what I found to be) hokey ho-hum sci-fi series. Perhaps what to me is cliche seems like camp to others. (And it's inaccurate: how could a scientist make the goof of stating that the last outbreak of bubonic plague in Scotland was in the 8th century)? It reminds me of 1970s Dr. Who which I accepted as camp at the time when I was a lot younger. Having said that, I only struggled through the first couple of episodes so perhaps it improves later.

Sanctuary is a science fiction drama about Dr. Helen Magnus and her support team as they find, study and provide a safe haven for all sorts of abnormal creatures. Dr. Magnus' team includes her daughter Ashley, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman as well as two abnormal assistants.The first season of Sanctuary follows Dr. Magnus and her team as they discover and capture several new species of abnormals. Dr. Magnus and her team also coordinate efforts with members of the first five, super humans each with special powers, as they try to stop an evil worldwide plot against abnormals.

a fantastic series, which includes sci-fy, fantasy, action, a bit of romance, and comedy. All around I enjoyed season 1, and the following seasons are just as good!

This is another show that somehow passed me by but I was fortunate enough to catch it while it is still on the air. I picked up season one and couldn't put it down. The characters are interesting, the storyline is fun, plus the acting and special effects are also great. I would highly recommend this to fans of science fiction.

Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.

The show centers on Dr. Helen Magnus, a 158-year-old English scientist, and her team of experts who run the Sanctuary, an organization that seeks out non-human intelligent creatures, known as Abnormals, and tries to help and learn from them, while also having to contain the more dangerous ones.
