Syfy's original series Sanctuary returned this Friday, with the start of its all-new 20-episode season. The third season premiere continued where last season left off with the Sanctuary team trying to reach Kali and prevent catastrophe. The series stars Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as Kate Freelander, Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss, and Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt and "Biggie." This season will also feature an episode arc with guest star Polly Walker (Caprica, Rome).
Sanctuary shoots almost entirely on green screen and has phenominal visual effects which were previously nominated for an Emmy Award in 2008.

Fringe is a show about the strange and unusual things that happen, and cannot be solved or understood by normal means, but by fringe science. These include things like mind control and pyrokinesis. The show follows FBI Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and her consultant Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson). They are joined by Peter’s father Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his assistant Astrid Farnsworth, played by Jasika Nicole.
Besides playing the FBI agent, Nicole has also appeared in such shows as Law & Order: Criminal Intent and the recent comedy She’s Out of My League.

Kenton Duty is fairly new to the acting scene, but he does have a few roles under his belt, with a role in the web series Ctrl and a part in the Tim Allen movie, Crazy on the Outside. He also appeared in an episode of the television series Cold Case. His talent, however, more than makes up for his lack of experience. Duty may be fifteen, but having been part of one of the most popular television series in history, Lost, is bringing him into the spotlight and is sure to help his budding career.
On Lost, Duty played the role of a young Jacob, although no one, including Duty himself, knew who his character was until nearly the final episode of the series. He was billed simply as “Teenage Boy.”
