Amanda Tapping's "Sanctuary" axed by SyFy

As most of you already know, Amanda Tapping's series Sanctuary was cancelled by SyFy after four seasons. No specific reasons were given by officials (May 21st) for the show's cancellation.

News about the demise can be found here:
http://www.gateworld.net/news/2012/05/s ... r-seasons/
http://tv.yahoo.com/news/syfys-sanctuar ... 06987.html
http://www.gateworld.net/news/2012/05/crossroads/ (interview with Amanda & Martin Wood)

I was very disappointed at the news that SyFy axed Sanctuary. I felt it was one of the very few good quality sci-fi shows remaining on the cable channel. Now, I'll cut back further on my exposure to SyFy, except for an occasional movie (not all of them) and whenever they get the projects Sherwood & Legendary on the air. I don't care for the paranormal stuff, wrestling, and reality TV shows they've been trying to shove down our throats for quite some time.

To borrow from Amanda's character Dr. Helen Magnus... Bloody hell!

I have actually not taken the time to see the show yet, but you think it is worth watching?

I've seen a few eps here and there. Wasn't something that grabbed me and begged to be watched.

Well, I will defenitely give it a try if it crosses my path and is cheap.

Some of the episodes can be kind of corny... but as time when on there were less corny more dramatic eps I think.

Re: Amanda Tapping's "Sanctuary" axed by SyFy

I was just getting into this show, just goes to show what happens when you hesitate. I think I'm gonna stop watching TV altogether. Every time I get interested in some show it gets cancelled. I might as well just buy the DVDs, or subscribe to Netflix and not get frustrated. What ever happened to the days when SciFi put a show on that was worth watching and then left it on the air? Would someone please go into the programing offices and take away their yo-yos and scheduling dart boards. Maybe the heads of programing should get canceled if they don't have a large audience after 16 weeks, now there's a thought.

I did watch the ep where she kissed the chic at the end. It was an "OOHHHH!!!! No she just did not!!!" moment, lol.
