Lost Girl Season One

The cast of Lost Girl

This Canadian produced supernatural series actually has one of the most unique premises for a TV show. It revolves around a female demon named "Bo", more importantly a Succubus. In mythology a Succubus are demons who seduces men in order to devour them. Fortunately they can turn into a beautiful woman. The beautiful woman in this case is actress Anna Silk who plays this interesting, almost split personality character as she attempts to keep her darkness in check. For Bo, she would much rather prefer to remain human as opposed to unleashing her demon ways.

At times, Lost Girl is a little reminiscent of the excellent Joss Whedon series Angel which featured a similar precise, however unlike Angelus the vampire who became good because he was given back his soul, Bo decides to make the choice on her own, even though her memories are quite clouded. The first episode begins with Bo on the run, no memories, only fragments of her past and even more concerning is that whenever Bo kisses someone, they die. However Bo is not alone in the supernatural and she is approached by "The Fae".

The Fae are a mysterious organisation who offer Bo the chance to not only divulge her information of her past but give her the choice of joining one of two tribes, the Light of the Dark. Bo rejects their offer and chooses humanity as opposed to the world of the supernatural.

As you can see, Bo is quite a strong willed individual and thankfully along her journey, she meets other people who act as friends and allies. These people include Kenzi (Ksenia Solo), her human sidekick and Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid) who is actually a Far working as a human detective. Bo even opens her own private investigation company, just like Angel.

Generally, each episode revolves around Bo and friends assisting someone or something such as a a lost college student or a will-o-wisp to find their treasure. However the main theme that overlaps each episode is the world of the Fae or the fairies and as the series progresses, the viewer is treated to new supernatural beings and additional information about the background of Bo such as her mother whom she is searching for.

Without spoiling the stories that run throughout this series, Lost Girl is a thoroughly enjoyable supernatural TV show and Bo makes the perfect protagonist. There is also an awesome revelation near the end of the season we won't spoil it here. If you enjoy TV shows such as Supernatural, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer or True Blood, than Lost Girl is definitely right up your alley.

On DVD, the video quality is quite acceptable as is the audio for this well made TV series.
