Sanctuary 3x03 "Bank Job"  
I'm usually kind of a crankypants, so credit where it's due: This episode was actually pretty good! Actual competence from the various characters in their respective fields, the application of various kinds of intelligence, characterization for Kate for a change, reasons why they don't use what would seem to be the obvious resources, abundant red herrings to keep me guessing, even a seeming mistake that paid off late in the game. There was only one headslapper, and even that was only a matter of a delay in doing something rather than an outright omission. Kudos to writer James Thorpe. I'm actually glad I spent time on this one!

ETA: Plus, plus, Amanda Tapping "faking" a bad American-ish accent! Bwah! I love her so much.

I really enjoyed that episode of Sanctuary. It was the best ep they've had in quite a while I think.

The one surefire way to hook me is to show people being very good at what they do, and this episode had that all over. I'd have to agree — by far the best I can remember recently.

That's like watching a virtuoso play or sing something horribly off-key. I may need to listen to the hidden track in DW's East Asheville Hardware.

Heh, yeah — they know just what wrong notes are most effective.
