  • Lady in the Lake, Geico Gekko, The Fly

    This episode is notable in three ways:

    One. This episode emulates Robert Montgomery's 1947 film adaptation of Raymond Chandler's "The Lady in the Lake."

    "Montgomery ... create(d) a cinematic version of the first-person narrative style of his Philip Marlowe novels. With the exception of a couple of times when Montgomery (in character) addresses the audience directly, the entire film is shot from the viewpoint of the central character, Marlowe. The audience sees only what he does."

    -- Wikipedia

    Two. This episode includes a hilarious reference to the Geico gekko auto insurance commercial.

    Three. This episode evokes some of the tragic overtones of David Cronenberg's masterful 1986 version of the SF/horror film, "The Fly."
  • Metamorphosis

    Metamorphosis was a very interesting and great episode of Sanctuary. I enjoyed watching this episode as Will started changing into some sort of hybrid abnormal with different strengths and abilities from Hollow Earth. It was interesting to watch Magnus and the gang try to find a way to help Will and reverse the process he is undergoing. I really liked the way the episode was filmed from Will's perspective which added an interesting feel to the episode. Messeges from Hollow Earth offer the Sanctuary team little help or hope. In the end Will is saved and the end has some humor. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!
