OVERALL: Hubby and I knew we were going to watch this show when we saw on SyFy that Amanda Tapping was making a Web series called Sanctuary. If Ms. Tapping makes it, we will watch. We were not disappointed. 🙂 So gothically steampunky good.
POINTS: It has Amanda Tapping being awesome and saving unloved creatures from an unjust world.
PITFALLS: Hmmm….. Uh SyFy, why did you stop the show. same on you.
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): YES! Sanctuary is the wonderful Amanda Tappings’ baby. So of course she plays the show’s lead Dr. Helen Magnus. So cool. There is also Agam Darshi who plays Kate Freelander, a person who knows about “abnormals” and ends up being very helpful to Magnus and her team. There are also good female characters throughout so go enjoy.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Well I would have liked more PoC.
HIGH POINT(S): I love the tagline “Sanctuary for All.” It makes the Unitarian-Universalist Hufflepuff in me very happy. I liked that theme throughout the show too. Very Star Trek, very very good.
I also LOVED:
BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3 to 3 of 3 depending on the episode.
DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Oh yes!! Own it, watch it, love it.
LION PAW PRINTS: 4 of 5.
