Format: DVD
"Sanctuary" has always been a murky, shadowy series, but the second season makes everything much, much darker -- death, insanity, and the biggest baddest Abnormal since... well, ever. The handling of the Cabal and Ashley are pretty clumsy, though the stories that follow are more solid and intense than those of the first season.

In the aftermath of the Cabal's worldwide attack, the gang encounters a young con artist named Kate Freelander (Agam Darshi), who has been hired by the Cabal. But when Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and Will (Robin Dunne) go hunting for the Cabal's headquarters, they encounter Ashley (Emilie Fullerup).. who is leading an all-out assault on the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary gang also have to take in hundreds of new Abnormal refugees, in addition to their usual problems -- a future scenario filled with cannibalistic zombies, a flying superhero, Henry's old flame is attacked by a peaceful Abnormal, a vampire squid, a rageaholic Abnormal mob boss, and a gang of trust-fund vampires. Even worse, Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl) seems to have returned to his "Jack the Ripper" ways, and Magnus seems to be going insane after shooting Bigfoot (Heyerdahl again).

And a trip to Mumbai goes horribly wrong when Will becomes the host to a bizarre Abnormal, which connects him to Big Bertha, a vast, ancient Abnormal "who raises the seas and shakes the land." Problem is, someone else wants that power instead.

Maybe it's just my imagination, but "Sanctuary Season 2" seems considerably darker than the first season (although it has more sunlight).

Format: DVD
The first season of Sanctuary was one of the coolest, most "refreshing" TV shows that I'd come across in quite some time. However, in addition to having a few very disappointing events occur, it just doesn't seem to me that season two has the same intangible attractiveness and mystique.

The first three episodes resolve the loose ends from season one, and that's where my biggest issue is. If you have read the other reviews, you know that Ashley gets killed off, which is disappointing, she was part of the show's heart. I will admit that her death does make sense w/in the storyline, i.e. the writing was good. But still a shock - I wonder if she no longer wanted to be on the show? What no one else has mentioned is that Klara Griffin (the invisible girl) gets killed off, and it is done in such a quick, senseless, clumsy way, I just don't get it. It would have been better to just not have her come back at all. She was so cool, a great compliment to the other characters. Also, the Cabal story arc, which seemed like such a huge deal, also gets "done with" in two or three brief-seeming episodes. Like it wasn't nearly as pervasive a threat as season one suggested. But maybe that's just me. Regarding the Kate Freelander character, I don't necessarily think her a bad actress, but she can't replace Ashley/Klara, and seriously, this is a serious show, not a sitcom, why would you name a character "Kate Freelander"? Why?

Anyway, the mid-season episodes are a mixed bag. "Hero" is lighthearted, but a lot better than you expect it to be. Amanda Tapping's old Stargate pal Michael Shanks has a cameo, which is cool, and while I am not into vampires (haven't watched any of the Twilight movies), the episode "Sleepers" is probably one of my three favorite episodes of the entire series so far.

Format: DVD
The Sanctuary is a haven for all kinds of paranormal creatures, from the monstrous to the shunned. Dr. Helen Magnus has made the protection and study of abnormals her first priority. Following the cliffhanger ending from season one, Magnus' daughter Ashley has been kidnapped by the deadly Cabal. And Magnus and her team discover the Cabal's plans and their plans for Ashley.

Joining Magnus' team this season is Kate Freelander, a con artist with a good heart. Adam Darshi plays the initial rogue-turned-hero throughout the season. Her character changes quite a bit, as early on, I found her annoying and out of place. And the rest of the team is back, of course: Amanda Tapping as Dr. Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Zimmerman, Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss, and Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt. These characters are some of my favorites on television.

Season two is just as exciting and suspenseful as the first. Each episode is strong and continues to impress. The ensemble cast works well together, with excellent acting. And the special effects continue to inspire, and are easily the greatest of any other television show on the air today. I can't say enough about how much I love this show. Season three is coming to the Syfy Channel this fall. So don't miss the first two seasons of this excellent show, now on DVD and Blu-ray.

Sanctuary - The Complete Second Season - Blu-ray Region Coding
I bought seasons 1 and 2 at the same time, but I can't get season 2 discs to play on anything! I am sometimes getting the message that the discs can't be read -- other times, the machine just pops the dvd back out. Anyone else have this? Suggestions?
