Sanctuary - Season 2

13 posts in this topic

Anyone watching this series? I think this second season isn't going anywhere atm. It looks like the first couple episodes were used to write out a couple characters and bring in a couple new ones. Which was fine, but so far this season has not felt anything like the previous season.

Heres my current beefs with this season so far:

- I was also annoyed with the first episode of season 2.. there was a pointless car chase scene that was nothing more than constant camera shots of an in episode bmw commercial After the third time of showing the logo, it was just way too much.

- The scene transitions they use now look horrible and comic book styled.

- I'm glad they fixed Ashley's bangs, but then I noticed her forehead was huge... oh well, shes gone now. X'D

- The organization's weapon x program seemed like a rip off from the recent wolverine movie and what they turned Deadpool into.

- I know watch this on a HD television... and holy crap everything looks like blue screen. I know its made in a blue screen fashion, but on a SD television its much more impressive.

What I like so far:

- Ashley is dead. yay. Her character seemed all bubbly/blonde and out of place.

- The new girl should fit in much better, imo.

- The acting seems better.

- Whatshisface's hair reminds me of anime hair. X'D

Great, for one I had no idea this was already airing and secondly it doesn't sound like it's living up to the awesome first season. Looks like I'll need to start dling and watching this one as well (not like I'm not already behind on the new season of Lie to Me and Penn and Teller, sigh).

So after all the hub bub from the end of season 1 they go and kill Ashley? I can't wait to see this (even though she was hot and I liked her).

If you didn't like season 1, then don't even bother. So far this season isn't even close to being as good as season 1.

I think the new girl is more attractive. ;)

I still have to find a place to thats putting it up for dl so I can see what she looks like. Blast not having the free time to look for this stuff and blast not having cable.

Sigh, I mean after everything they did in the first season, especially that damn ending, I still can't believe they killed her off though. I thought she'd have a lot to do with what the Cabal would be doing in season 2. Ohwell, I'll just have to keep searching for the eps online so I can watch it.

It was kind of a let down with what they did the Cabal even. Watch the eps and you'll see what I mean. btw, turns out the sanctuary had a small security force inside the santuary including what appeared to be a cave troll.. wtf.. why didn't they ever show these people in season 1.. and since that episode, they haven't shown them again.. wtf. -_-;

OMG. The last episode was a complete rip on Spider-man and the symbiote.

The next episode looks promising tho.. unless it turns out to be a rip on 'the day after tomorrow' -_-

Did anyone watch the season finale? It was pretty interesting. So much Indian culture in it. And when Will danced.. lmao. He looked so insane in the middle of the street. X'D

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

I'm reviving a dead topic, yay trendsetter me :P

So I finally got around to dling and starting season 2 (only two eps in) and I actually like it so far. I actually do not like the new girl as of now and am pissed Ashley is dead. Happy the Big Guy didn't die though (I so would of been pissed). Was sorta cool to see Druit (sp?) going all two blade sword fighting at that one point and that small security force was pretty pimp (seriously a troll in the mix was awesome) and I think that's only in the UK Sanctuary (the main one seems to have other security details) and that elemental was pretty pimp.

Gah, I digress. I'll go into more detail on my thoughts as I watch more into it but as of now I'm liking it.

That security team with the troll was awesome! I wish they'd show some teams like that more often! If anything, it makes you wonder why they never showed any security teams in the first season or even later in the second season.

The big guy dieing episode was one of the best episodes of the second season, aside from the finale. I loved how the entire episode wrapped up in the end. It reminded me of the series Eureka, how all the little observations come together at the end of the episode.

I wish the new girl would change up her attitude and wardrobe a bit. She has some potential, but its like shes a punky 80s chick. O_O

Well I've finally got caught up on the show (up to series finale, after searching for two weeks for the last three episodes). Interesting last episode and Will dancing was hilarious. I really can't wait for season 3 now.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.
