Sanctuary US - S02E10

Sci-Fi & Fantasy . Action & Adventure . Drama . Fantasy . Mystery

Magnus and Will investigate a number of inexplicable teenage disappearances. The common denominator in the case seems to be that they all recently spent time at an exclusive rehab clinic in Mexico. Paying a visit to the clinic, Magnus and Will are surprised to meet the program’s director…none other than a disguised Nikola Tesla, one of the original Five. Tesla portentously explains he has been working on a treatment that cures the teens of their addictions in merely a week. Magnus and Will know Tesla has an ulterior motive and press him to disclose the real purpose for the clinic. Unable to hold back his excitement, Tesla reveals he is actually turning his patients into Vampires. Tesla’s treatment is designed to create a time-release of the Vampire gene, evolving his unsuspecting patients into Vampires over a 30-year period. But when one of his patients discovers the formula to speed up the process, they find themselves up against a powerful and determined group of new Vampires. Unless they can be stopped, Magnus fears Tesla may have unleashed the resurrection of the deadliest race of Abnormals ever to roam the Earth.

    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.
