Review - Sanctuary Season 3 Episode 3 Bank Job

"Bank Job" takes a unique spin on the usual abnormal capturing episodes. Instead of running around to catch the abnormal, the team must quarantine a bank, and Kate decides to stage a bank robbery. Kate's skills actually put to good use for once and her knowledge of law enforcement operations allows her to drag out the negotiations as long as possible, giving Magnus enough time to find which host the abnormal is in.

There's a good mix of everything in the episode, as the bank robbery and negotiations are balanced with finding the abnormal with limited resources, but nothing spectacular or special. In the end, the other guy looking for the abnormal is arrested (though he could easily make an excuse) and the abnormal is found.

Opening credits... ugh. It was bad enough that last week's was the same one from the season premiere, but this week it was about 2 seconds. In a day and age when opening credits are shortened beyond belief, it was nice for Sanctuary to have full length credits, but now it's joined the pile of shows which don't have a unique theme.

Score: 8.7/10
