The Sanctuary is a haven for all kinds of paranormal creatures, from the monstrous to the shunned. Dr. Helen Magnus has made the protection and study of abnormals her first priority. Following the cliffhanger ending from season one, Magnus’ daughter Ashley has been kidnapped by the deadly Cabal. And Magnus and her team discover the Cabal’s plans and their plans for Ashley.
Joining Magnus’ team this season is Kate Freelander, a con artist with a good heart. Adam Darshi plays the initial rogue-turned-hero throughout the season. Her character changes quite a bit, as early on, I found her annoying and out of place. And the rest of the team is back, of course: Amanda Tapping as Dr. Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Zimmerman, Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss, and Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt. These characters are some of my favorites on television.
Season two is just as exciting and suspenseful as the first. Each episode is strong and continues to impress. The ensemble cast works well together, with excellent acting. And the special effects continue to inspire, and are easily the greatest of any other television show on the air today. I can’t say enough about how much I love this show. Season three is coming to the Syfy Channel this fall. So don’t miss the first two seasons of this excellent show, now on DVD and Blu-ray.
