First things first if you're a sanctuary fan then your guaranteed to enjoy this regardless of any other reviews. This series has all the elements that we have come to expect from the sanctuary team. Humor action and plenty of SF although the mood is a lot more sombre and there's less green screen environments. However this is a new sanctuary in tone and Plot. This is especially obvious in episode Fugue, that has a familiar singing based plot but without the Overt humor, its emotionally mature but in a good way, although Will can be a bit soppy sometimes. Not to say the series is all doom and gloom it's just matured form its days of having those nubbin things or the comic book superpower abnormal goo.

The series continues the hollow earth theme by having the hollow earth abnormal's come to the surface. Causing all sorts of panic with the sanctuary team narrowly avoiding a war with an overly aggressive general. they then have to deal with a abnormal insurgency that follows. Without giving too much away the governments of the world are now aware of the abnormal's and how dangerous they can be so decide to deal with them without the sanctuary i.e. FBI, NSA, etc hunting them on there own. So this leaves the sanctuary team cut off from there former political connections and the UN.

Now for my review. The series for some reason has gone back to the 13 episode structure. Not sure why but it doesn't seem to affect how the series progresses. There are a lot of good episodes including the return of the Kush (shape changing fear abnormal from Ep.5 Of series 1) and of course any episode with Nicola Tesla in it (Spoiler# Think are 51#). However it doesn't seem to me, to have the same grip as series 3 which I watched in the space of about a week.

If you enjoyed the last 3 seasons how could you not enjoy the fourth and final season. Even the musical episode was a surprise, I thought it would be a stinker but nope it worked for me. Sorry to see the series end. Another great sci-fi series cut too early.

Annoyingly, does not play on region B player. All previous seasons of Sanctuary did play worldwide, so not sure why this one is different. Bought the German import version instead, which plays fine and has English audio, but there's an episode set in Normandy, where the German isn't subtitled, and the French is subtitled into German. Annoying.

Such a shame this was the last series. I thoroughly enjoyed every episode and, for me, the supporting cast's characters were just as memorable as the two 'leads' I particularly liked Henry Foss (Ryan Robbins) and Dr Nikola Tesla (Jonathon Young), who both injected humour so well that they generated genuine laugh out loud moments.

I thought season 3 saw Sanctuary stepping into the big league,sadly season 4 see's it taking a step backwards,mainly due to the return to the thirteen episode format.Due to the show being so well wriiten,there was always more story than the episodes could handle,and its the same again.Things feel rushed,events move along at such a pace that you havnt got time to take everything in,and on a couple of occasions its like things arent even explained fully,in the mad dash towards each episodes conclusion.This season also splits up the Sanctuary team in almost every episode,which is not a good thing all the time,and one major character disappears for almost the entire run.For me it lost a little of its focus this time out,and this showed in the character interaction,which is a shame.

All this said however,Sanctuary is still one of the best shows out there,clever,intelligent and not afraid to take risks(a semi musical episode).The original concept pushed at the boundries,and thats something it still does,which is why I believe that even on its fourth season,and dispite the few mistakes,it still feels fresh and keeps you watching.Amanda Tapping once again holds everything together on screen,with a great turn as Dr Helen Magnus,and yes Jonathan Young returns as Nikola Tesla,and he still steals every scene he is in and gets all the best dialogue.So its such a shame that as of this moment it looks like there wont be a fifth season,as the Syfy channel seem to have pulled the plug on it.I think the powers that be at that station need to wake up and start treating the fans of their shows with a little more respect,Ive lost count of the number of great shows that they have killed off.Heres hoping that somehow Sanctuary finds a way of not being the latest one.

This was bought as a present for my brother to add to his "Sanctuary" collection, as he's was a huge fan of the TV series.

We were both sorry when they decided to finish the series. But at least with having the whole TV series on DVD we can watch it whenever we want. :-)

Sanctuary season 4 is a great season with lots of twists and turns. The time travelling storyline means that you can't assume anything.
The special effects are better and the show maintains it's sense of humour.

Built upon ideas that make you shudder they're so detached from rationale, Sanctuary bumbles ever onwards and tries to make you want to watch it with the lame banner logo "Even things that go bump in the night need protecting"....what think tank and focus group came up this bland bit of fly-away nonsense I wonder.

Straight away we are plunged into a universe not quite like our own, perhaps removed a bit in time or several layers sideways into alternate states - we never really find out the answer to that one. Some decidedly amateurish green screen graphics take care of most of the landscape special effects, while creature animations are on par with what you might find on the cutting room floor of an art school filled with people who cant get qualifications any other way. Production values throughout come across as tired and lazy, like the studio crews just don't care any more, or have pulled out all their hair already. And Amanda Tapping's acting....well, does anyone reading this actually call it acting?

In a quest maybe for some diversity they've thrown in a musical episode, which is simply excruciating. On top of that are all the old favourites, like starting an episode with an explosion that happens towards the end of the storyline then dropping back to "three days earlier", getting stuck somewhere they can't escape from with a shapeshifting killer among them, chasing adnormals around abandoned derlict warehouses....yawn. And poor Adam Worth can't stay dead, they bring him back as some internal virtual computer projection to haunt and taunt poor ice-cold Helen Magnus. Even Stargate SG1 didn't dip into that particular revival bag, and they pretty much set the standard for doppleganger returns.

Ok, worth watching if there is absolutely nothing else in the world to do.
