TV Show Review: Lost Girl
Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural crime drama television series that premiered on the Showcase Television network in September 2010. The series is developed and produced by Prodigy Pictures. The series follows the life of a succubus named Bo, played by Anna Silk, as she learns to control her abilities, help those in need, and discover the truth about her origins. The show received positive initial reviews, and was renewed for a second season two months after its premiere. As of December 2011, the show has been renewed for a third season.
Bo is a succubus who grew up in an adoptive human family, unaware of her non-human nature and of the Fae world. Her succubus powers only become apparent to her when she accidentally 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.
There are two sides of Fey, light and dark. The fey have a problem with her, because she won’t pick sides.
She doesn’t know who her parents are. They said her parents abandoned her probably to protect her from something.
I think her parents are one dark and one light side Fey. Which maybe the reason she is reluctant to pick sides. In a Romeo and Juliet type of way, the forbidden child will bring the end to their neat and tidy light and dark side society. Maybe they were trying to hide this identity!
Not sure if I like the show yet… It’s definitely better than the other new supernatural shows as of late eg: once upon a time and Grimm.
