Format: DVD
Imagine this: a giant gothic building that serves as a "sanctuary" to various strange, freakish and/or dangerous creatures that exist in the world.

That's the concept behind "Sanctuary: The Complete First Season," a fantasy/sci-fi show that started off as a series of webisodes, then got turned into a show for the Sci Fi (Sy Fy?) Channel. The first season starts off shaky and sometimes painfully silly (nubbins!), but the second half suddenly smooths itself into a solid arc of secrets, conspiracies, and a fanatical enemy organization.

Forensic psychiatrist Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) has a pretty rotten life -- his girlfriend has left, his job is a joke, and nobody believes his deductions. But during a bizarre murder investigation, he encounters a strange woman named Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) who offers him a job at the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary turns out to be a vast cathedral-like structure filled with "Abnormals" -- mermaids, elementals, iguana-men, two-faced dudes, or anything that doesn't fall in the boundaries of known science. But the Sanctuary's residents are now in danger from a charming Abnormal named John Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl), who has a longtime connection to Helen. And unless he gets what he wants from her, he'll kill her daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup).

I'll admit that I only bought this DVD set based on a cheap price and hearsay - that is, I'd heard it was pretty good and I knew it had a lot of producers and writers from shows I already loved. That said? I don't regret it one bit. I watched the show shortly after receiving a prompt delivery, and I fell immediately in love with it. The stories are gripping, the characters are wonderful and compelling, and while the CGI is occasionally a bit noticeable, the affects and visuals overall were stunning.

The DVD set itself is of amazing quality - the video and sound quality are top of the line, and the set up is easy and smooth, if a little simplistic. The special features are nothing spectacular, but they are interesting enough, and are more than enough considering the price and the quality of the rest.

Overall? I definitely recommend this set to any Science Fiction or Fantasy fan - it's well worth a look.

I have always been a big fan of SciFi shows such as the Dresden Files, Fringe, Stargate, and Stargate Atlantis. I was thrilled and pleasantly surprised to discover that many of the cast from Stargate have appeared in Sanctuary as a guest or recurring roles! And it's a Canadian show (filmed in Vancouver, B.C.) Christopher Heyherdahl, from Twilight New Moon is featured quite a bit in it as Big Guy and Jack the Ripper. I loved the unique storyline of Sanctuary, it was very unusual show right from the beginning, it captured my heart as well as the writer in me. I very much enjoyed the stories and wondered where their adventure would take place. I highly recommend this DVD, you won't be disappointed.

Bought this DVD because we are fans of the SG-1 & SG-Atlantis series. Enjoyed the episodes a lot & we are quite hooked on getting the next season.
If you end up not liking the story line, the characters or the acting you may just be in awe of the FX used on a TV show.

Fantastic video and audio encoding and with nice packaging. The discs are difficult to remove however, using a system of plastic spring-locks and tabs. It takes some dexterity. Be careful and push the discs against their springs before trying to pop them out from the left/right tabs.

Sanctuary is a creative concept and lives up to your expectations. Amanda Tapping is brilliant and so is the rest of the cast. A huge shout out to Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt and Biggie, two contrasting roles which he beautifully executes. The creatures which you encounter in this show are fantastic and so is the storyline. Cut short too early because of budget loss.
