Like The Magicians? You Should Watch These Shows

Sanctuary

Christopher Heyerdahl, Agam Darshi, Robin Dunne, Amanda Tapping, Ryan Robbins, and Christopher Heyerdahl

Premise:

Helen Magnus (Tapping) is immortal.

Along with her daughter and newcomer, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Dunne), she runs a sanctuary for Abnormals.

Usually hidden from society, the team tries to keep peace.

Why It Was So Good:

Another character-driven show, Tapping and Dunne lead the way in the first two seasons. Zimmerman is the Everyman who didn’t really know this world existed.

He’s the viewers’ surrogate for much of the series’s run.

The effects are decent for TV and the show works wonders presenting the fantastic mixed with the surreal. Kind of like The Magicians.
