Magnus is reunited with an old friend, Jimmy who is transporting a valuable elemental Abnormal to the Sanctuary for safety. But an underground mob accustomed to cashing in on the Abnormal black market, tracks down Jimmy and his valuable cargo before the delivery is complete. Magnus and Jimmy find themselves in a dangerous shootout, determined to save the Abnormal. Will, Kate and Henry are quick on the scene as backup. Kate proves her worth when she manages to get Jimmy and the Abnormal to safety. But not before taking a shot from one of the mobsters herself. Hiding out in an abandoned, derelict motel room until the immediate danger of the mob passes, Jimmy tends to Kate’s gunshot wound. With little to do but talk and wait for Magnus to find them, Jimmy and Kate discover an unexpected common history.

    Given that, let me also say that virtual sets don't make up for virtual plots. Not that Sanctuary doesn't have its moments, and those moments might prove to be fast and furious after tonight's two-hour premiere when the show goes to a more manageable one-hour format.

  • Maureen Ryan

    Sanctuary’s pace is a little on the stately side, and the show is competent if not particularly innovative sci-fi.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Much of it feels dreadfully slow, not so much moody as stretched for time....Things do pick up significantly with the arrival of Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The competent but uninspiring two-hour pilot doesn't deliver the kind of thrills destined to rock anyone else's world.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ray Richmond

    It takes on an early thrilling ride, only to inexplicably start coasting when we need it to shift to the next gear.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    It’s not an embarrassment for the channel, but it doesn’t raise the stakes either.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The show isn't helped by a two-hour premiere that states and re-states its premise too many times.
