Critic Reviews for Sanctuary: Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

We find out what bloodsuckers can do with an encyclopedic understanding of electricity, but the episode's biggest reveals are about the major characters.

The latter was filmed almost entirely on green screen with the scenery added in afterwards. The strategy allows for a show that was originally designed for the Internet boast a setting the size of a fortress.

Clearly, there was some debate over the future of Eureka - else the retraction of a shortened sixth season would never have taken place.

It's a lot like BBC America's Torchwood, just without the wit and a charismatic lead actor.

It's not an embarrassment for the channel, but it doesn't raise the stakes either.

There's little to recommend this dense drama, which recycles a number of familiar sci-fi tropes.
