I didn''t realize the woman lead on the TV \
show "Sanctuary", is the same as the blond lady \
that was \
I actually kind of like Amanda tapping.\
She was great on Stargate if only because she was a female scientist who actually got to save people often.\
Very rare they have a female character that competent on a sci fi show.
She is definitely the lead on Sanctuary.
I''ve just finished the entire series of Stargate: SG-1. I actually think that she was the best actor (less Michael Shanks, but I like him for reasons other than his acting, although he was great in the role). She did provide a depth of character that Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Judge and others didn''t provide viewers.\
So, is Sanctuary a "must see" for a sci-fi geek as myself?
I just gotta know...

God yes! Very light weight but enjoyable.
I liked the concept of a haven created for non-humans and the intriguing back history of the protagonist developed during the first season, but the series lost me at the beginning of the second season. It looks really cheaply made, too.
Worst haiku ever!

Never saw that depth of She always reminded me of a fifth wheel.
When is it coming back?
I started out liking the Sam Carter character on Stargate but then she was turned into such a know-it-all I began to find her really obnoxious. It was obvious the writers had a real hard on for her.
I loved Amanda on the Stargate series, but couldn't warm up to Sanctuary.
Don Davis, who was the Major in Twin Peaks, played a general in SG-1.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
