On this week's Episode title "ConFaegion", Bo’s houseguest Vex unwittingly brings “greetings” from a vengeful Morrigan – sparking a chaotic role-reversal that demands humans Kenzi and Lauren work together to save their Fae friends.
Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural crime drama television series that premiered on Showcase on September 12, 2010. The series was created by Michelle Lovretta, and is produced by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media. It follows the life of a succubus named Bo, played by Anna Silk, as she learns to control her abilities, helps those in need, and discovers the truth about her origins. Following good ratings and positive reviews, it was renewed for its second season two months after its premiere, and for its third season in December 2011.
Lost Girl focuses on the gorgeous and charismatic Bo, a supernatural being called a succubus who feeds on the energy of humans, sometimes with fatal results. Refusing to embrace her supernatural clan system and its rigid hierarchy, Bo is a renegade who takes up the fight for the underdog while searching for the truth about her own mysterious origins.
Season 1 Plot of the show, Bo is a succubus who grew up in an adopted human family, unaware of her non-human nature and of the Fae world. Her succubus powers only become apparent to her when accidentally she kills her first love by draining him of his life energy, an act which forces her to flee her home. Bo exchanges her previously normal life for one without family or friends, moving from place to place whenever she kills again.
In the pilot episode, Bo saves a human girl named Kenzi; the two quickly become friends and Kenzi decides they should team up to create a Fae/Human detective agency. Confronted by the Fae elders with having to choose a side ("Light" or "Dark"), Bo declares herself neutral, deciding to side with humans after Kenzi risked her life to find what had happened to Bo for her own sake where most of the Fae simply saw her as another factor on the board. Throughout the season, Bo learns more about the Fae world and herself while she searches for information about her origins. Along the way, Bo also develops romantic relationships with both Dyson, a wolf shifter police detective and Lauren, a human doctor.
Season 2 Plot of the show, With the world of Fae in chaos following Bo's explosive reunion with her mother, Bo must learn to "play the game" and navigate the inner workings of the Fae World in order to protect those who have helped to protect her. Bo finds her resolve to stay free challenged, and is forced to question her own morals and beliefs. While Bo grows stronger and learns more about who she really is, relationships will be tested and passions will ignite, but answers will not come easily.
My first thought on the show is that the premise seems very much like that of Nightwatch. More akin to the book than the movie, but with a completely different type of mystical beings.
The acting, unsurprisingly, seems a trifle wooden, but it was just the first episode, so the actors are all still feeling out their characters. I'm certain, considering the actors that I'm familiar with, that they'll flesh out well in very little time, though.
