Sanctuary, the TV Show

"Sanctuary" is a show on the SciFi channel, starring Amanda Tapping, who previously played Samantha Carter on "Stargate: SG1."

Tapping plays Dr. Helen Magnus, a British physician of extreme longevity (157 years). The Sanctuary is a place where she and her minions give refuge to "abnormals."

The show is very heavy on CGI scenery, which probably is used to cut down on set and location costs. CGI is also used to make the city of the Sanctuary be slightly different from an identifiable city.

I don't understand the point of the series yet. I may give it a few more episodes to see if is worth the 45 minutes a week.

On the other hand, I'm getting a kick out of "the Mentalist" on CBS.

Sanctuary already lost me. But I like The Mentalist and I am even getting interested in The Eleventh Hour!
