    I know it's rather early to say, but because it's had that profound of an impression on me, I honestly think this series will surpass Atlantis as my second favorite show of all time.

    The first scene with the Sanctuary crew was just TOO AMAZING for words . Honestly. Also, once again, the music stood out to me.

    It really does seem flawless too me. I absolutely HATE it when people start to nit-pick things. That's not to say I'm ignorant to some things. Every once in a while I do find something, or even cringe, at things on Atlantis. We're only three (four, whatever) episodes in, yes, but I'm an optimist!

    I really enjoyed this episode. So far, Sanctuary is coming along nicely. At least IMO.

    This show continues to amaze me! It just keeps getting better and better!

    I totally didn't see the twist at the end coming!

    The acting was incredible, and it was nice to see Alex Zahara again!

    Can't wait until next Friday!

    Hopefully, she doesn't have any money in stocks.

    Episode totally rocked. Loving the humor and Helen's cheekiness. I also liked that they maintained continuity and had the healing scratches on Ashley's throat. Even on SG, when someone was injured, they were fine in the next episode. "Time passed" that we never saw. Which is fine, most series go that way, but it was quite refreshing to see that it was only a couple of days later and there were still remnants of her encounter with the weird critter in the green house room.

    I'm wondering if Will will eventually move into the Sanctuary. Right now, it's still a "job" that he goes to each day.

    i really liked the ep!

    can't say i loved it, because *still*, there's not enough helen!


    pros -

    *i totally didn't see that twist coming. so yeah, that turned out great!

    *the actor that played the good guy/bad guy did a really good job.

    *great effects with ashley and flying man up on the building. great enough that i got a bit antsy with the heights.

    *i liked zimmerman being upset when the situation (after the shooting) fiinished. i think he knew he was very close to being killed. helen coming to him to see if he was alright was also another great touch.

    *loved helen's outfit during the ep.


    cons -

    NOT ENOUGH HELEN!


    next week's ep looks very dramatic and angsty. yeah!


    ~scifi better hurry and renew the show so i can relax and not worry about it being gone. i'm an amanda addict and MUST have my fix! k, done. for now. no, wait. MORE HELEN/AMANDA! k, done. bye~

    I second Sally's post! Only thing that could be better is more Amanda/Helen!

    But I think she got that point across just fine!

    Nice episode. The show's getting a bit better. I wish they could upped the dramatic side of the stories. We should feel a little bit more for the folding men, but we don't know much about them (they backstory and interactions). Still sanctuary is much better that most tv shows. I saw the twist in the end coming, because it was a good twist. In the sense, that they gave us clues all along. I caught it when the prisoners said that : "he wouldn't get caught UNLESS he wanted it too".

    Yeah, this is a fun show. I like AT far better as Helen than I have liked her as Sam for years. As a fan of gothic architecture I'm always pleased by the sanctuary itself, that kind of atmosphere puts me in a good mood. I don't really care for procedural-type shows, but all the little things add up to make it pretty enjoyable for me. I'm looking forward to seeing Druitt return, CH is an impressive actor and the storyline with him is interesting.

    Because I know it's going to be brought up, I'm going to point out now that Ashley not having scars in Fata Morgana but in this episode proves that they intended for the witches story to air later in the season.

    this one was enjoyable

    I loved seeing alex - weren't we just talking about him guesting??? - and the twist was fantastic.

    I liked seeing a more 'normal' adventure. no international conspiracies, no top secret organizations, just an insight into the city and how things work. we see that the sanctuary folks work in concert with existing people and groups in the city. and that the sanctuary is well known amongst the abbies and is held in some esteem.

    I think my only 'nit' is that they bout fata morgana between sanctuary for all and this one, so we have the wonderful continuity of ashley's healing scratches go away for an eps, then come back...but i also know that morgana was originally supposed to be later in the season and was moved forward for some reason, so i kinda consider it a second pilot and just ignore the inconsistencies

    Since I'm not watching S5 of SGA because of it's lack of Carter , Sanctuary is my second favorite show right now, next to SG-1. And Helen's my second favorite TV character, next to Sam . I was right, the show just keeps getting better .

    Well said Sally . I like the episode for the reasons as you, and yes WE NEED MORE HELEN . I like Helen's choice of clothes, it's weird seeing her in casual clothes, since we mostly saw Sam in her military gear. And like you, without my Amanda fix, I get a little like nomand from yesterdays episode .

    I can't wait for next week, I'm sure it'll be Helen-licious .

    I love Helen, but Sam will always be my girl . Along with the Amanda, so the 3 of them are mine .

    This one was better than the Atlantis episode, but still only a 8/10 mainly because it felt a bit rushed...

    Yeah I agree I really enjoyed the episode as well! The little cheekiness from Helen is funny... and I have to wonder about her inside info from the police I liked the team chemistry they are developing between all of them some very nice moments in the eppy.

    Will's ex-girlfriend said he was never home anymore so I wonder if he will eventually move into the Sanctuary as well. I thought it was funny how everyone knows all about Will, even the evil folding man knew him.

    The Sanctuary has a good rep with the abnormals out in the world ... even the evil guy said they were the only ones he had to worry about. I never saw the twist coming lol Very nice!! When I watched the 2nd airing I picked up on the little clues I missed the first time. Very enjoyable episode!

    I was suspicious at first, mainly because
    Spoiler:
    I've usually seen that actor play bad guys
    but then they totally got me off that track so I fell for it.
    Like majorsal--I always want more Helen. I loved the scene where
    Spoiler:
    she captures the guy.
    I also liked the bit of banter we got. Not too "joke-y"--it felt like a pretty natural sense of humor to me.

    I agree.

    I liked the episode. I really like Peter Outerbridge and thought he did a fabulous job here. I did think he might be Nomad when he said Nomad wouldn't get caught unless he wanted to be caught. However, the way they played the narrative of past events threw me so the twist did end up being a surprise. My only complaint was I would have loved a little interaction between Helen and Nomad at the end or maybe have him escape to pop up again.

    Liked the working relationship between the main three. Getting to see a bit more of Helen's sense of humour.

    Loved seeing several recognizable faces, Alex, the old guy who has been in a few Stargate episodes and Will's ex partner, also a Stargate alum.

    My only minor nitpick (sorry Falcon) is completely shallow. Didn't like the wrinkled coat look for Helen. Amanda keeps saying she's sexy and unapoligetic so why are they covering her up in wrinkled coats? (I don't mean the lab coat)

    By the way, wasn't that a Prius Will was driving? In keeping with the environmental policies of the show Amanda has mentioned.

    Hehe, no problem. I actually have an opposing thought about that, but it's rather... borderline (not towards you, but in general).
