As someone who had watched (and reviewed) the original webisodes,I was very apprehensive about how the new tv version of Sanctuary would turn out...would they keep things as they were or change them?
I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes they had changed some of my fave scenes (no David Hewlett or Will fainting in the shower),but it was a great start to it's tv life.
The story was basically the same just filmed in a different way,with some of the parts from the webisodes added in.
We got to meet everyone that is important: Helen,Will,Ashley,John and Bigfoot.
I have noticed with Ashley that they seem to have toned her down.She is not so much of a bratty,obnoxious girl anymore..which can only be a good thing.
The CGI was much better,and brighter too.I could see everything very clearly.
Overall a very good first half of the pilot,I enjoyed it very much.
There were a few times I would say out loud "It didn't used to be like that!",but after a while I relaxed and enjoyed it for the 'new' show that it is.
