3.0 out of 5 stars Sanctuary for all May 16 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
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).

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful June 25 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Fantastic Nov. 27 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The episodes are character driven and are well crafted. Writing's pretty sharp and everyone is belieable despite the weird situations that are presented. Overall, it's a great entry into the urban fantasy genre. Helen Magnus is a well rounded character and both her mission and loneliness is very well portrayed. Dr. Zimmerman as the seeker of truth is fantastic and Henry...Henry is my favourite for his normalness in such an odd world.

Will for sure get the second season and the 3rd when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanctuary: Season one, Season Two June 19 2012
By kekes
Format:DVD
Riveting! A touch of many sci-fi's in one. Fantastic acting and special effects. Great story lines! I just keep wanting more and more!
Only negative thing I can say is not about the series itself but the people who cancelled the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Sci-fi Jan. 24 2010
Format:DVD
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.
