    It's a shame I always watch the episode on Saturday morning/afternoon... I'm usually busy/preoccupied with other things in the evening and prefer to watch it as soon as possible but that also means I can't participate in the drinking game if it's really going to be bad...
    Unmade Plans (WIP: 11/20):
    Sam's life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy. The decision to keep the baby and raise it on her own will alter her life forever. Relationships are put to the test, especially the one between her and Jack. She doesn't know what to expect from him and he surprises her at every turn.

    Thanks. Hope your impression was correct.

    Celandine: But what they say and what they actually feel about something might not be the same. I'm positive AT, RD or RR wouldn't say Fugue was a horrible experience and they for sure wold try to put a positive spin on the episode. If at least for the ratings. I'm sure they want to keep their jobs as much as we want Sanctuary to get a season 5
    I think you're right. They wouldn't say it was horrible or that they think it was a mistake to try a musical episode especially before it's even been aired, even if that's how they felt, which I'm not saying is how they feel, but anyway... (was that confusing? )

    Thanks to yamiinsane for my lovely sig.

    But on that note, we know that as a person who has the power to steer the direction of the show, Amanda wouldn't have allowed the episode to get very far if she thought it degraded the show in any way. Plus, she's been raving about it from the beginning as well.

    Of course Fugue is going to suck if everyone goes into it with that attitude. (Can`t believe I said that. I normally hate people who think that attitude determines success, but in this case it`s a sound theory.)Seriously, every idea for a musical sounded stupid at first, but then most of them turned out to be great works of art that expressed the story possibly better than a conventional play, movie, book etc. Have a little faith.

    Nope. No Faith. Not going to watch it. Not totally without reason. I CRINGED at the sneak peeks. Couldn't stand to watch the whole two or three minutes much less a whole episode.. Plus an Abby/Will based episode. Another NOPE!!!!!!

    There is a reason singing is not on the resume of some of the cast.

    Edit: There is a difference from being brave and making people embarrassed to watch.

    Indeed. I remember in the commentary or podcast for Pavor, Amanda said the director wanted to shoot certain things in the hose scene, but Amanda didn't allow it because she said it sexualized the scene, and that's not what the scene was about. Good for her, and that tells me that she stands up for her show.

    THIS!!!

    See, too many fans go into certain episode thinking, or with the belief that they won't like it, and I've seen this on other shows. 1 of 2 things can happen. 1- They'll other go in thinking they won't like it and end up not liking it, or 2- they go in there thinking they won't like it, and then they'll come out going "nbvcdfhjkjhgfdrtu OMG, that's the best episode I've ever seen!"

    For some fans, it's easier think hide from an ep, then give it a chance, and I bet they'll be some people saying the show has an agenda with the music ep, just like they did with Monsoon.

    Too many fans go questioningly into episodes lately because they have felt burned before. High expectations in season 3 followed by boring filler episodes has paved the way for a more discerning audience. And we can pick and choose which ones we think will entertain us. I can't wait for the final two episodes. Those I think are not going to disappoint. OH, and the Tuesday one too. Looking forward to that one. The third from the end that is a Will/Helen stranded? Not sure if a want another rerun like Icebreaker.

    If all fans were like you, the show wouldn't have even gotten a S2.

    I don't think the mods like it when you do your "other people but me" are not true fans since they have different views.

    Others are willing to give it a chance, some are excited, like Sally. You seem to want to run and hide from the ep.

    I'm sorry I can't join your True Fan club. I'm proud to be an individual with my own opinion. And I speak for no one else or expect anyone else to think they way I do about a musical episode. It is nice to see all the different opinions. I guess different opinions bother you. But for the future episodes of Sanctuary I have some I will view and others I will skip.

    Let's lose all this 'true fan' crap please.

    First, how many times must it be said that 'fans' don't save or keep a show on the air, millions and millions of random average viewers do.

    Second, again, how many times must it be said that people can and should only speak for themselves???? This isn't the 'bully everyone to seeing things my way' forum. This isn't the 'stepford wives' forum. This is a forum of independent people from all over the world.

    You don't have to like a person's opinion but you do need to respect it.

    And I'll also say that criticism is welcome here, as long as it's respectfully phrased. And I will also say that praise is just as welcome, also as long as it's respectfully phrased. You guys want the 'Praise only forum', go somewhere else. I defend people's ability to say they love the show, I defend their ability to say they hate it. What I do NOT defend is members being told what they should think and say.

    Darn I was hoping it was a mistake because I can't tape it then since I tape Flashpoint on ION for my mom because my LCD/HDTV is the only one in the house that picks up the channel without a box and my mom can't even watch or tape Sanctuary then since she tapes Covert Affairs at that time so she can watch 3 straight hours if CBS. I guess it good thing it's only an extra air date. My other thought was that whoever does up the schedules for SYFY was a little Tesla happy.

    I wonder what effect that will have on the ratings but that's for the ratings thread.

    True, but since they have admitted to times when they have felt silly doing things on set (like RD and AT running from the basilisk in Hollow Earth or RR losing his clothes going HAP), I guess I personally would give them the benefit of doubt if they say they enjoyed doing the singing, rather than assume it was a humiliating experience for them because I may find it silly.

Kinda like how fans wanted to see a little more chemistry between Sam and Jack but the writers were forever teasing fans. Are the dream team throwing everything out there for a reason? To draw new fans in to muster ratings? Or perhaps they know something about season 5 that we don't...yet.

    Get a new drink when you see an ex-stargate actor on the show, beyond the main cast.
    I believe I'll be joining you with the drinking game on Friday. See? Sanctuary brings fans together in more ways than just one.

    True. I'm hoping for the best on this Fugue episode personally. I mean, when Grey's did their musical ep, I had to cringe a bit if not for some of the singing but for how OTT it was but it turned out okay. I would always rather watch a mad action scene with explosions, plot twists and new and intriguing abnormals, but I'll go into this musical ep not disliking it until I watch it in full. Maybe it'll be some kind of a dream sequence or hallucinations by one of the characters like Grey's was which will put it into the acceptable category, no matter how bad the singing turns out to be.

    One thing is for sure, if AT does a decent job, I'll be handing her a guitar at AT6.
