Syfy (SciFi)'s Sanctuary Season 1 versus Season 2

The Syfy (SciFi) channel is one of my favorite channels when I have time to watch TV that is (which is not often). I'm home a lot during the day, and they replay shows that I loved, like Moonlight, that have been cut by the major networks. But, I'm making an exception for Sanctuary this year. Here, it's on Fridays at 9pm central (with a replay at 11pm central). I started watching last year, but it just wasn't working for me, I thought it was going to be dark urban fantasy, and for some reason, it didn't click for me. But, thank God for second seasons because I decided to give it another try. And hot damn, it's dark urban fantasy!! Not only are there supernatural creatures that are protected by the Sanctuary and hidden from society, but there are good guys and very nasty bad guys. Now, don't get me wrong, there were good guys and bad guys last season, but the bad guys this season are these dark evil people who want to use the Sanctuary and the creatures to their own devices. I was very impressed with the first two shows this season, a two part episode called 'End of Nights' and it very well almost was the end of night for the Sanctuary. I hope it continues in this vein!!! (I tried Warehouse 13, and it's okay, but not spectacular). I'm still liking Vampire Diaries, I just wished they'd replay it at different times. So far this TV season, there are two shows that I don't mind taking a peek at (I also like NCIS.....I watch long distance with my pop, but it's on Tuesdays, so don't get to watch often, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays are activity nights for the kids, and with basketball season fast approaching, there goes Monday, only one more football game.....woohoo!!!)

Hi Blodeuedd!

I watch a little last season and it was not what I thought is was going to be. Warehouse 13 could have been fun, look at all the cool stuff they have. This season's opened for Sanctuary had scary vamp types (all mind controlled by an outside evil organization called the Cabal), it's much dark than last season which seemed to be a lot of world building....explaining how the sanctuary came about and why. There wasn't enough action for me. It's harder to watch the world building than it is to read it. Happier with this season so far, but only the first two episodes, hope it continues to be dark urban fantasy.

I need to check out Sancutary. The magic words here "And hot damn, it's dark urban fantasy!!" Looks like my kinda show. Now if I can just remember to watch it at the right time & day. On the whole, I'm really not much of a TV watcher.

Hi Donna!

That's the same trouble I have. I have to make myself a note, only good thing is the Syfy usually replays their shows at a later time. I don't watch many TV programs, and if I going to have to TV on, I'm usually watching a DVD!! I've enjoyed what I seen of Sanctuary and Vampire Diaries. The only two shows I've seen this season so far worth turning the TV on for, much rather be watching a movie most of the time.

Will go check out these tv series you are talking about Dottie...I heard of them but here in the netherlands none are aired. Especially the Vampire Diaries has caught my interest ;)

Hi Leontine!

Remember if there aren't showing in your area, check out Hulu, they run a lot of TV shows. I just discovered another that I had meant to watch and missed called Flash Forward. From what I seen it scifi but with a twist. Looks interesting. Not sure it will be everyones cup of tea.
