    NO!!!!

    Dang it... that is one of the many shows that I still enjoy.
    Not a perfect show, but one that was fun and enjoyable.

    There are still some unfinished business with the show.... hopefuly they get a chance to do a wrap mini-series/movie....

    Of course, another show I like bites the dust. At least I still have Warehouse 13, Haven, and Alphas (for now)

    I agree, there had to be something more with the Abnormals being public and the Sanctuary going rogue...

    I liked Sanctuary through most of it, but disliked the expansion of the Hollow Earth story where the Abnormals started to come to the surface to take over. The rest of it, with Tesla, Watson, etc., was great, but I have a feeling that last season was too much for a lot of the fans. I would have liked to see Syfy bring Sanctuary back to redeem itself.

    Same here. Hopefully, they will have a movie to wrap things up. I know that SyFy likes Amanda Tapping, so hopefully they'll continue to be nice to her.

    Dang! I liked Sancturary. I HATED the musical episode however. But I don't think it should have been cancelled. However NBC has a history of cancelling shows that have potential, (Knight Rider 2008). I liked SGU (Stargate - Universe) too. But they canned it. I wished Alphas had been cancelled. But it was successful for some reason. I don't know WHAT NBC/Comcast has in mind for SyFy.

    We need to start a campaign immediately:

    "Remove Warehouse 13 from NBC's Control, before they screw it up and cancel it"

    Too bad for Sanctuary, but I had a feeling it was coming. There had been no news for too long.

    I thought they did an amazing job on this show shot almost entirely with green-screen and a digital RED camera.

    I absolutely love Warehouse 13 - corny stuff and all.

    Sanctuary? Not so much ... I stopped watching when Emilie ("Ashley") left.

    Los Gatos,...
    It seems that many of my shows are being cancelled or ending. Dang it! Maybe I'll drop TV entirely! It seems that good old fictional shows are being replaced with REALITY shows...which aren't reality at all!
    My losses:
    House
    Eureka
    Desperate Housewives
    AMC's Walking Dead (potential loss of AMC)
    AMC's Mad Men (potential loss of AMC)
    Alcatraz
    Terra Nova
    BBC's Outcast
    Fringe (in a year)
    Sanctuary
    V (old)
    Flash Forward (old)
    etc...

    Wow...we watch close to the same shows. Of course I would add in cancelled shows that I will miss like The River, Chuck, and Harry's Law.

    However remember there are still some serial type great shows on like Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Justified, Grimm, Once upon a time, and Persons of Interest. Not to mention the many comedies like Modern Family, The Middle, and Happy Endings. So still some good shows. :)

    Doesn't Once Upon a Time use some of the same/similar green screen technology for it's fantasy world scenes?

    When Sanctuary first launched it was supposed to be filmed almost entirely on green-screen with all it's sets being computer generated. I don't think they entirely stuck with that idea, but it was still pretty impressive, especially considering the meager budget for producing the show.

    I believe the webisodes were done that way and they main goal for the series was to do it that way too to keep costs low, but I don't think it was meant to be exclusively that way for the series.
