Exclusive: Damian Kindler Looks Back at Two Seasons of 'Sanctuary'

Since it debuted as a short-lived Internet series in 2007, the Vancouver-shot show Sanctuary has gone from strength to strength.

The series follows the adventures of a group of monster-hunters led by the 150-year-old Dr. Helen Magnus. Magnus, played by Amanda Tapping, is assisted by her protégé, Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) . At various times this pair have also joined forces with Jack the Ripper (a.k.a. John Druitt, played by Christopher Heyerdahl), a sarcastic vampire named Tesla (Jonathon Young), James Watson (supposedly the original inspiration for Sherlock Holmes and played by Peter Wingfield), a computer genius stricken with a form of lycanthropy (Henry Foss, played by Ryan Robbins) and Bigfoot (we were asked to keep his true identity a secret).

These characters illustrate the imaginative mash-up of legends, literature and sci-fi that characterizes Sanctuary. The show has elements reminiscent of The X-Files, Supernatural, Hellboy and The League of Extraordinary Gentleman.

'V' Episode 1.02: 'There Is No Normal Anymore'

Episode Title: "There Is No Normal Anymore"

Written By: Scott Peters & Sam Egan

Synopsis: FBI Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Father Jack Landry (Joel Gretsch) must decide whether or not to hide their knowledge of the Visitors' true intentions — a particularly difficult decision for Erica given the fact that she had to kill former partner Dale (Alan Tudyk), who was secretly a Visitor. Journalist Chad Decker (Scott Wolf) attempts to control the public perception of Visitor spokesperson Anna (Morena Baccarin), while secret Visitor Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut) tries to find a way to repair his damaged flesh.

Don't Trust Anyone: Tonight's episode reinforced the theme that everybody is suspect — after all, if you can't trust Alan Tudyk's face, then who can you trust? There are already some suspicious characters in my mind including Agent Malik (Rekha Sharma, one of the elite final five on "Battlestar Galactica") and Father

[DVD Review] Knights of Bloodsteel

At the end of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring I remember being awestruck for two reasons. One it was a cinematic experience to behold and I had just beheld it; it was refreshing and exhilarating. The second feeling was a pang of instantaneous remorse when the first name sprawled across the scene for the end credits.

“That’s it?! What?! No! More!”

I had just sat through a 3 hour film which had left me wanting more. I was not and am not an avid Tolkien fan and even resented the man slightly going in to the film. By the end, Peter Jackson had made us amiable acquaintances. That’s what a good film does, it draws you in to a new world, makes you feel and then spits you back out with little pieces of it still attached to your mind. Keep that in mind: I

Beware Visitors Bearing Gifts: In the Press Room with "V" Executive Producers Scott Peters and Jace Hall

Wondering just what to expect from the revival of V? I caught up with creator/executive producer Scott Peters--who also created USA's much-missed sci-fi series The 4400--and executive producer Jace Hall in the press room for V last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. As for when we can expect to see V hit the small screen (it was originally announced by ABC as a midseason series), Peters had a bit of news that will come as a pleasant surprise for fans eagerly awaiting the launch. "We're told November," said Peters. "We haven't gotten an exact date yet but what's great for us is that it was originally announced at Upfronts as a January show. I think we're pretty excited by the response that people are giving to it and, for whatever reason, they are pulled it up a few months and made us nervous for a second because,
