Storyline

Who will protect you from the things that lurk in the dark corners of the world? Or, more importantly, who will protect the dark corner dwellers from you? Dr. Helen Magnus runs an organization called The Sanctuary, dedicated to the discovery, protection, and study of unknown species living virtually undetected amongst humans all over the world. This groundbreaking web series lasted only 8 short episodes (under 20 minutes each) before being purchased by SyFy Channel, rewritten, and re-shot as a full length series. (See Sanctuary (2008) for the SyFy TV series) Written by SciFiChick81

An excellent series that is as interesting as it is innovative
23 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched television series on Syfy in the past. Some were okay and others were terrible but this is the first series that I have seen on Syfy that I would rate as truly excellent. The pilot was a little slow at first (as is often the case with pilots) but by the middle of the second episode my interest was peaked. And by the third episode I was completely hooked! The storyline is engaging with enough of an arc that I want to continue watching. I have not found a television series that I have enjoyed this much since The X-Files series ended. The cinematography is creative and visually pleasing without calling attention away from the plot. The performances delivered by the cast are superb. There are too many TV series and movies that cast actors who seem to be "emotionally flat-lined". It is extremely refreshing to see actors like Amanda Tapping and Robin Dunne who actually REACT to emotional situations (in much the same way that people do in real life) rather than just looking like a wooden doll. I am looking forward to the next season of Sanctuary and I can't wait to see what they come up with next.
