Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sanctuary Complete Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)Surprisingly good.
True, the special effects are, now and again laughable. Unlike say Battlestar Galactica.
It concerns a so-called Sanctuary(which is secret but everybody knows about it) for Guys who happen to be Werewolves, MerPeople; even a Frog-Lizard guy in a cool smoking jacket turns up very briefly.
As you do.
He does look a cool guy though. Worth having a drink with.
The point is the stories are quite good; the scripts well-written and punchy with a modicum of wit. And, reasonably well-paced.
The characters themselves are quite nicely drawn.
Only one or two are one-dimensional.
And better, the clichés aren't too badly done. For example, where "somebody" is always stupid enough or security systems fail at just the right time - allowing the 'bad guy' in. Oh Dear...How will we survive(to the next story line).
I particularly love the 'unexpected beginning' to some episode.
It managed to hook me for 4 episodes at each viewing (4 episodes per disk...).
And that's saying something.
I intend to check Series II and see if they can keep up the pace.
