Ha! How's that for a title? And, no, this has nothing to do with my previous post in regards to whether or not Helen and Ashley are banging each other.

I understand this week's episode was your 'we blew our budget for sweeps now we gotta do an ep as cheaply as humanly possible, ie, sticking two people in a room and hope it's entertaining for 42 minutes' but I just have two words for you - SUB PLOT!! Or at least ya'll could have watched Doctor Who's Midnight as an example of how to do this well-worn plot effectively. 'Cuz that was a 20 minute episode stretched to an interminable 42 minutes.

Also, I know that in Hollywoodland and, especially, the offices of SciFi there's the mantra belief that no story is worth telling unless it revolves around a heterosexual white-male preferably aged between 25-45 (a mantra also pinned to the computers of the Heroes staff) but, seriously, a little less Will please! I'm *really* starting to hate the character, especially since you guys keep shoving the 'Will's Special, no, he really is' theme down my throat by having him DO NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY! I mean, it's great that SciFi went out on a limb by airing a show that has a *gasp* woman as its lead, it'd just be nice if she were, you know, actually allowed to be the lead as opposed to co-lead.

And, yes, I do think this ep would have been more effective had it been Ashley instead of Will. Despite all of Will's emo-boy manpain, Ashley's the one with an immortal for a mother and a sociopathic, serial killer for a father. If you're looking for a well to mine for some drama? Ya'll are looking in the wrong place.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the show I just wish you guys (seriously, why don't you have a woman on your writing staff?) would skip a couple chapters in your "Book of Storytelling Sci-Fi Cliches For the Low Budget Writer" because, seriously, an 'underground fight club' episode? An UNDERGROUND FIGHT CLUB episode!?!

Sanctuary – Episode One

I went into this series ‘cold’. Basically, all I knew was it was going to be a web based series by some of the folks from Stargate and it starred Amanda Tapping. Which, really, was all I needed to know to get me to watch.

I went ahead and bought the bundle for the first four episodes. I don’t know. I wanna say it was great but, honestly, I wasn’t that impressed. Yes, it LOOKS great. The production values are top notch. Considering the pedigree of those involved, I’d expect nothing less.

But all the production values in the world can’t save you from a mediocre narrative. Which is probably a bit unfair on my part but I was expecting a bit, I don’t know, more. It’s not bad, or horrible, instead it feels like the first 15 minutes of a very slow movie, instead of the first episode of a series, ya know. I didn’t find the characters particularly engaging other than playing ‘Hey! It’s That Stargate Guy’. I guess I just expected better from the people involved in the longest running scifi series on US television.

Amanda Tapping is just kinda there. It’ll take me awhile to get used to the British accent. But I didn’t really learn anything about the character other than she’s British and on the mysterious side. David Hewlett shows up to play a character I DON’T want to punch in the face with a frying pan, along with Kavan ‘Maj. Lorne’ Smith, sporting a very unfortunate haircut.

In the end, I’m invested until episode four (literally) but, if the show doesn’t pick up I don’t think I’ll be plunking my money down for the rest. (I know, who am I kidding, if I could pay full price for Dante’s Cove, I can pay for this). As for the web-series concept, honestly, I’ve seen better from people with far less money and resources than the folks doing Sanctuary. After one ep, I hoping for the best but bracing myself for the worst.
