Time for introducing a new tv series that I’ve been watching. Well quite new acually. Premiering in September of 2010, Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural crime/drama series focusing on the life of a succubus Bo (Anna Silk) as she learns to control her abilities, help those in need, and discover the truth about her origins. Orphaned as a baby, Bo was raised by human adoptive parents who never knew about her power to steal people’s life force through their mouths with a kiss, to bewitch people with a touch, and to feed from sexual energy during intercourse. She herself was unaware of her powers & came to realize it later in life.
In the pilot episode Bo saves Kenzie, a human thief from being assaulted by a man an drains him of his life force. Bo later comes to know that she is one of numerous Fae, abnormal creatures who live among humans and who were often the inspiration for mythological & fairy tales. Like Dyson (Kristen Holden-Reid), a cop, who unknown to humans is a Fae who can transform himself into a wolf. When Bo’s presence becomes known to the Fae world, the elders ask her to choose a side; between the ‘light’ or the ‘dark’. Bo declares herself as a neutral, siding with the humans and deciding to start a detective agency with Kenzie, who has attached herself to Bo, and takes help from Dyson. She also starts a sexual relationship with both Dyson and Laurem (Zoie Palmer), a human doctor who is associated with the Light Fae, while searching for her origins & the truth behind her existence.
I’ve watched the first 3 episodes and I like it. The show has received mostly positive reviews and has that John Fawcett touch (he also directed the Ginger Snaps movie series). The settings look mostly sexy & glamourous and they’ve kept the green screen & CGI to minimum and realistic as possible on their budget. Plus there’s Anna, who as you can see her, is smooth as Silk and sexy as hell. She is one of those women who can make gay men to go straight & straight women to go gay! Habahabahaba. I’ve seen her in guest roles in some tv series and her 3 episode appearance in Being Erica. The first season had 13 episodes and season 2 is airing at the moment.
