I have to wonder if the psych hospital in the House finale was also a hallucination. It was pretty strange how the street and parking lots were empty. And it looked like he was going to one of those hospitals from the 1940s. — RSmith
MATT: How Vanilla Sky! But nope, sources assure me that House's rehab stint is the real deal. And that hospital's more retro than you think. Greystone Park State Hospital (in Morristown, N.J.) made its debut in 1876 as the not-so-subtly named New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum. The hospital has tended to such patients as singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie, and until the Pentagon was built, it boasted the largest foundation (674,000 sq. feet) of any structure in the U.S. I'd try to book a TVGuide.com Q&A with the building, but fear I'd be stonewalled.
Now that Reiko Aylesworth has been dropped from ABC's The Forgotten, could SVU bring back her ADA character, Erica Alden, from Season 1? —Walt

TVGuide.com spoke with Tapping, who is also executive producer, about the genesis of the episode, what it was like to film with Dunne 24/7, and what's next for the Sanctuary crew this season.

"Sci Fi will continue to trail blaze the television landscape by further exploring the many worlds of Sanctuary through its unique green screen environments," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming at Sci Fi. "Technology and great storytelling makes Sanctuary a fantastic addition to Sci Fi's 2009 lineup."
Sanctuary was created by Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis scribe Damian Kindler and stars the first lady of sci fi, Amanda Tapping...
You adored her as Col. Sam Carter for 13 years on Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, but now Amanda Tapping is launching herself into a new show called Sanctuary (Fridays, 9/8c on Sci Fi). The intriguing show features Amanda as the enigmatic Dr. Helen Magnus who recruits the young and handsome Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) to work with her in her home – which she calls a "Sanctuary for All." She houses and treats all forms of "abnormals" who most people would deem as monsters that should be destroyed. Erin Fox sat down with the First Lady of sci fi to discuss Magnus' background and the challenges of shooting a show almost solely against green screens.
