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).Read more ›
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.
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.

didn't catch my interest as much as I thought it would be. Seems to be an American version of Torchwood almost. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Cici SpeedyG
C'est une bonne série. J'aime bien le fait qu'il y ait une version française. Une série différente qui s'écoute bien.Published 7 months ago by Gillian
