J'aime bien la série mais il y a un épisode où le doublage français est complètement mal fait.

HASH(0xa4a44114) out of 5 stars Sanctuary under siege March 12 2010
By EA Solinas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Sanctuary" has always been a murky, shadowy series, but the second season makes everything much, much darker -- death, insanity, and the biggest baddest Abnormal since... well, ever. The handling of the Cabal and Ashley are pretty clumsy, though the stories that follow are more solid and intense than those of the first season.

In the aftermath of the Cabal's worldwide attack, the gang encounters a young con artist named Kate Freelander (Agam Darshi), who has been hired by the Cabal. But when Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and Will (Robin Dunne) go hunting for the Cabal's headquarters, they encounter Ashley (Emilie Fullerup).. who is leading an all-out assault on the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary gang also have to take in hundreds of new Abnormal refugees, in addition to their usual problems -- a future scenario filled with cannibalistic zombies, a flying superhero, Henry's old flame is attacked by a peaceful Abnormal, a vampire squid, a rageaholic Abnormal mob boss, and a gang of trust-fund vampires. Even worse, Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl) seems to have returned to his "Jack the Ripper" ways, and Magnus seems to be going insane after shooting Bigfoot (Heyerdahl again).

And a trip to Mumbai goes horribly wrong when Will becomes the host to a bizarre Abnormal, which connects him to Big Bertha, a vast, ancient Abnormal "who raises the seas and shakes the land." Problem is, someone else wants that power instead.

Maybe it's just my imagination, but "Sanctuary Season 2" seems considerably darker than the first season (although it has more sunlight). It starts off rather wobbly for the first few episodes, which are basically devoted to writing both Ashley and the Cabal out of the story -- and it's done in a painfully contrived manner, especially since the Cabal seemed to be the Big Arc Villain.

Fortunately the standalone episodes, and the ones involved with Big Bertha, are far better -- lots of buttkicking action, gruesome murder (knives, spores, zombies), some truly bizarre abnormals, and the usual gothic gloom and rainy skies. But there's still an undercurrent of quirky humor (Henry and Bigfoot go off to geek it up at Comic-Con... especially since nobody notices the Big Guy there). And the whole episode with the Adjustor was just hilarious.

Tapping has some of her most brilliant performances here -- grief, paranoia, struggles with her ex-lover's killer nature, and even the possible loss of the Sanctuary network. Heyerdahl is amazing as both the bloodthirsty Druitt and the gentle (if grumpy) Bigfoot; Dunne is awesome as the gentle, intelligent Will (as well as the hardened, cold "future Will"), and Ryan Robbins gets a great episode devoted to Henry's personal issues.

The one false note: Kate. Darshi is a good actress and the character has promise, but why replace the annoying blonde with an equally annoying brunette? Fortunately, there are some excellent guest stars -- Michael Shanks, Erica Cerra, and the villainously hot Calum Blue.

"Sanctuary Season Two" has some stumbling blocks (I want more Cabal!), but the actors are still brilliant and the storylines are picking up. Worth seeing despite the wobbly first few episodes.

HASH(0xa4a4412c) out of 5 stars I liked season 1 much more. March 3 2011
By snow47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The first season of Sanctuary was one of the coolest, most "refreshing" TV shows that I'd come across in quite some time. However, in addition to having a few very disappointing events occur, it just doesn't seem to me that season two has the same intangible attractiveness and mystique.

The first three episodes resolve the loose ends from season one, and that's where my biggest issue is. If you have read the other reviews, you know that Ashley gets killed off, which is disappointing, she was part of the show's heart. I will admit that her death does make sense w/in the storyline, i.e. the writing was good. But still a shock - I wonder if she no longer wanted to be on the show? What no one else has mentioned is that Klara Griffin (the invisible girl) gets killed off, and it is done in such a quick, senseless, clumsy way, I just don't get it. It would have been better to just not have her come back at all. She was so cool, a great compliment to the other characters. Also, the Cabal story arc, which seemed like such a huge deal, also gets "done with" in two or three brief-seeming episodes. Like it wasn't nearly as pervasive a threat as season one suggested. But maybe that's just me. Regarding the Kate Freelander character, I don't necessarily think her a bad actress, but she can't replace Ashley/Klara, and seriously, this is a serious show, not a sitcom, why would you name a character "Kate Freelander"? Why?

Anyway, the mid-season episodes are a mixed bag. "Hero" is lighthearted, but a lot better than you expect it to be. Amanda Tapping's old Stargate pal Michael Shanks has a cameo, which is cool, and while I am not into vampires (haven't watched any of the Twilight movies), the episode "Sleepers" is probably one of my three favorite episodes of the entire series so far. Nikola Tesla is brilliant. The two-part ending saga "Callie" is fairly decent. I have to admit, I didn't mind Will's dancing sequence - it actually put a much needed smile on my face during a stressful day.

But the show's incredible mystique in season one, in which the Sanctuary itself was mysterious, most of the episodes had a very dark color palette, and the shadows could have held anything. Here, the color palette is lighter, Magnus herself is less mysterious, sporting more makeup and a better tan, Bigfoot is more chatty (sometimes it isn't even Chris Heyerdahl playing him, and it *does* make a difference to me)...it's like the show has been normalized. But being ab-normal was what made it great to begin with.

This is certainly not the worst show out there, but I honestly would not recommend buying season two. If you have seen season one, I don't think that this is the same level of quality.

HASH(0xa4a44564) out of 5 stars Still My Favorite Show on Television Aug. 16 2010
By SciFiChick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The Sanctuary is a haven for all kinds of paranormal creatures, from the monstrous to the shunned. Dr. Helen Magnus has made the protection and study of abnormals her first priority. Following the cliffhanger ending from season one, Magnus' daughter Ashley has been kidnapped by the deadly Cabal. And Magnus and her team discover the Cabal's plans and their plans for Ashley.

Joining Magnus' team this season is Kate Freelander, a con artist with a good heart. Adam Darshi plays the initial rogue-turned-hero throughout the season. Her character changes quite a bit, as early on, I found her annoying and out of place. And the rest of the team is back, of course: Amanda Tapping as Dr. Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Zimmerman, Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss, and Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt. These characters are some of my favorites on television.

Season two is just as exciting and suspenseful as the first. Each episode is strong and continues to impress. The ensemble cast works well together, with excellent acting. And the special effects continue to inspire, and are easily the greatest of any other television show on the air today. I can't say enough about how much I love this show. Season three is coming to the Syfy Channel this fall. So don't miss the first two seasons of this excellent show, now on DVD and Blu-ray.

Special Features Include:
- Episode Audio Commentaries
- Five featurettes
- Anatomy of an Episode
- From Script-to-Screen look at "Next Tuesday" episode
- Behind the scenes
- Video diaries
- Bloopers and outtakes
- Production stills photo gallery

HASH(0xa4a44924) out of 5 stars SANCTUARY's guilty pleasure formula: potential still untapped = expectations still lowered Feb. 22 2011
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Out with the old, in with the new. X-FILES has for sure generated its share of would-be successors. FRINGE, WAREHOUSE 13, EUREKA, and SANCTUARY are only four of the ones still airing on television. Being a sci-fi/ horror/ fantasy junkie, I'm compelled to view them all. I'm not saying SANCTUARY is the best of the lot (that would be EUREKA), but it's got certain things going on in its favor.

There are clandestine strongholds, Sanctuaries, scattered across the globe which house all manner of strange, fantastic creatures, some sentient, some not, and some monstrous and catastrophic. Our cast includes the resident werewolf (who provides tech support), Bigfoot, a forensic psychiatrist, and Jack the Ripper, and their leader Dr. Helen Magnus, a beautiful scientist much older than she looks and who heads up one of the Sanctuaries. The show tracks Magnus and her crew's exploits as they seek to study and shelter (and, if required, contain) these grotesques that inhabit the world in secret. They had to label them something, but "Abnormals" for some reason just doesn't do it for me. I guess I don't think it's catchy enough. Abnormal makes me think of a skin growth or tofurkey or Nicolas Cage.

The two-part "End of Nights' picks up from last season as we learn the fate of Dr. Magnus's daughter Ashley, who had been abducted and genetically experimented on by the shadowy organization derivatively calling itself the Cabal. Ashley is metamorphosed into a vampiric killing machine and deployed, along with five others who had been genetically manipulated, to conduct surgical strikes against the Sanctuaries network. It's a heck of a send-off, the writing staff having decided to write Ashley out of the show. "End of Nights" is one of the series's most action-packed episodes, the best bit probably that of the sinister John Druitt channeling his inner Blade the Vampire Killer as he takes on Ashley and friends. Points taken away, though, for the otherwise perfect Amanda Tapping's over-the-top histrionics in these two episodes. I mean, I get it. She's frantic over her missing daughter. But, sheesh...

What hurts the season is its episodic tendency. It lacks the connective tissue of a thru story arc to pull you even more into the cast's various adventures. Instead, what we get is mostly this "monster of the week" vibe. Several characters don't make it out okay. But if the writers were trying for a dramatic, impactful beat, it doesn't work out that way for one of the characters to whom I felt was done a disservice. This person's death scene is accomplished in perfunctory fashion. In fact, it happens off camera. And, in "Eulogy," is it just me who wanted to whack that obnoxious pixie with a mighty flyswatter?

This time out, the Sanctuary team encounters weirdness in the shape of a pudgy superhero, a pandemic that ravages the human race in the near future, Magnus's degenerative brain disease, a telepathic tribunal, a 5000-year-old cult, an extinction-level Abnormal, and, perhaps most terrifyingly, a Bollywood dance number. My favorite characters continue to be Dr. Helen Magnus, the deadly John Druitt, BigGuy, and the awesome half-nosferatu Nikola Tesla. I'm not yet sold on Agam Darshi who is introduced as freelance operative Kate Freelander in "End of Nights." Her character feels lightweight and I'm not down with her incessant jibber-jabber. But I find Darshi more accessible than Emilie Ullerup.

For tepid episodes like "Fragments" and "Penance," we get highly watchable stuff like the fun "Hero," the bleak post-apocalyptic "Pavor Nocturnus," and the very plot-twisty "Veritas" (directed by Amanda Tapping and guest-starring EUREKA's Erica Cerra). I couldn't get that into the two-part season closer "Kali," and not even the nice character moments for Kate can salvage it. It's yet another cliffhanger ending, with lives in the balance and Magnus's directorship at Sanctuary in peril of usurpation. Not as good as EUREKA or FRINGE, mostly because, despite its potential, the show's writers can't seem to stretch their wings enough, and so we're forced to settle for a mediocre product. And yet SANCTUARY is bolstered with decent f/x and solid performances by Amanda Tapping, Christopher Heyerdahl, and recurring guest actor Jonathon Young (as Tesla). Season 2 produces just enough cool or redemptive moments that it's guaranteed itself a measure of loyalty and steady eyeballing from me of future episodes. But I hope they bring back Ralfie... only the cutest ugly dog creature thing ever!

SANCTUARY - THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON collects the entire 13 episodes on four discs and has the following hefty bonus material:

- Cast & Crew Audio Commentaries on all 13 episodes (and plenty of these featuring actress/executive producer Amanda Tapping who, when you listen to her, sounds less British and a lot more fun to be around with than the workaholic Dr. Magnus)
- "International Sanctuary" - featurette which details the global network that is the Sanctuaries (00:03:24 minutes long)
- Amanda Tapping Directs the "Veritas" episode (00:03:42 minutes)
- "'Next Tuesday' - Anatomy of an Episode" - a breakdown of this season's bottle episode (00:16:45)
- "SANCTUARY's Visual Effects" (00:08:55)
- "Sanctuary for Kids" - Amanda Tapping talks about the show's launching of its charitable foundation which seeks to help children in crisis (00:01:12)
- SANCTUARY Goes to the San Diego Comic Con (00:08:06)
- Robin Dunne's Video Diary - "Will Vision - Behind the Scenes & On Set" - worth watching for the genuinely moving final two minutes or so as Robin records the last day of shooting for Season 2 (00:13:18)
- Robin Dunne's Video Diary: "Will Vision - SANCTUARY Goes to Japan" for a presser and to shoot several establishing shots of the Japan Sanctuary, until the monsoon came along (00:10:48)
- "Dancing in Mumbai" - about that moment in the season finale "Kali, Part II" in which Robin Dunne has to dance, Bollywood style - and we get a behind-the-scenes peek at the dance rehearsals that went into it; I'll be honest, though, Dunne's dancing is pretty stiff and awkward (00:12:35)
- Bloopers & Outtakes (00:05:07)
- Behind the Scenes Slideshow (00:04:11)

I loved Amanda Tapping in Stargate SG-1, and the Sanctuary series only showcases her talents even more. We lose Ashley as a member of the cast but a new girl comes on board and does her part to keep the series exciting and fun.
