Sanctuary is a 2008 – Present fantasy television series starring Amanda Tapping. The series revolves around Helen Magnus, a 150 year old immortal who has dedicated her life to protecting unusual people and creatures. She does this through her Sanctuary network: a global private task force that investigates, protects, and if necessary contains beings/creatures called abnormals. The series is currently running on the Syfy channel and has recently completed its thrid season. A fourth season is schedules to air next fall.
This series is fantastic and vastly underrated. The story is excellent, the special effects are quite good (and not just for a tv series) and the casting is inspired. How often do you get to see a badass main character who is a woman, a scientist, a mother, and a badass who is actually older than thirty? Not very damn often, that’s for sure.
I know this episode is way too long. I was going to break it up into two episodes, but I’m tired of editing and just want to get it out. Hopefully, someone will still be interested.
