My Thoughts on Sanctuary Episode One, In Dialogue Form: A Follow-Up

Posted 8 March 2010 in by Catriona

I think I may have dialogued (for want of a better word) the wrong episode of Sanctuary, judging by what happened in episode two:

NICK: Wow, that was . . .
ME: I know. Did you see the bit where she admitted to voluntarily having Jack the Ripper’s baby?
NICK: Yeah. What’s a combination of “terrible” and “awesome”? Ter-some?
ME: That’s not really euphonious. I think we can settle for “craptacular.”
NICK: Yeah.
ME: You know, for a doctor, she had a really shaky grasp of genetics.
NICK: There was some mumbo [redacted] going on in that show.
ME: So she froze the foetus for one hundred years. What kind of cell degradation would happen in that time? I mean, you can’t even freeze chicken for more than three months.
NICK: Mumbo [redacted].
ME: And then she has Jack the Ripper’s baby because she thinks he’s gone for good by that point?
NICK: Yeah.
ME: That’s a crazy bad grasp of genetics right there.

Yeah…It’s not at the “so bad it’s good” point. It overshot and has gone to “so bad that it’s just really quite bad”. Which is sad for a show concept with so much cheese potential. :(

And yet, just like Vampire Diaries, it takes itself seriously. So why is it lacking that necessary camp factor? I don’t understand it, personally.
