Surprisingly good
29 January 2009 | by (Krakow, Poland) – See all my reviews

(spoilers are quite minor) It's actually the first episode of Sanctuary I really liked. Maybe because it's so different form other ones? Maybe because it brings some strong resemblance to "The Thing" (on good side) and "D-Tox" (on a bit worse)? Maybe because of small space and the old mystery "who is the killer"? I don't really know - but it worked for me. The solution/explanation wasn't really the smartest possible, but - well - you can't have everything. If the creature could do what it could - "ending" trick was too easy/obvious to work, really. I was probably going to stop watching this show, but this episode gives some hope to next ones. Really recommended. (I can't believe this minimum 10 lines limit - is it supposed to be a comment o a mini-review?!?)
