Every now and again a show comes along that is a little bit different! Sometimes it is the premise or sometimes it is innovation with new technology, and that is what happened with Sanctuary! This show was ground breaking in that it sought input from the Sci Fi community before the show was even aired and then was released for free on YouTube before being picked up by the then Sci Fi, now Syfy channel. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about what they thought of the innovations that came with this show, the interesting Canadian texture that was brought to the show and what it takes in the 21st Century for a show to make it on TV! They also get to interview Ryan Robbins, who plays Henry Foss, the geeky tech wiz and a Lycanthrope, who says that canines don’t use tech? Ryan has been in many Sci Fi and Fantasy shows. What you really need to do is have a look at his IMDB, but he was also a circus performer and more, so you need to have a listen to find it all out! Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Oz Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR http://www.blueplanetpr.com.au for the interview with Ryan.
In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia catch up with Chuck Campbell. Chuck has not only starred as Chuck the Gate Guy or “The Chucknician” in Stargate Atlantis but also stars Two Faced in Sanctuary but that’s not all he does either. His role on both shows is larger than just being an actor on the show. He was the stand in for David Hewlett (Dr McKay) on Stargate Atlantis and is currently the stand in for Robin Dunne (Will) in Sanctuary. During Gerri and Eugenia’s interview with Chuck you will get to understand what an important role a stand-in has to any TV show and what it involves. Gerri and Eugenia along with guest presenter Kess, talk about their thoughts of why Sanctuary is a TV show to watch. Gerri and Eugenia thank Carissa and Rand from The Hub Productions http://www.thehubproductions.com for introducing them to Chuck Campbell.
