So there is this new series on Showcase that has been heavily promoted in the subways – Lost Girl. My first thought was what a stupid name – will the second season be called ‘Found Girl’? The ads depicts a woman standing defiantly in an apocalyptic firey scene that just doesn’t seem to fit with the title.
Of course I had to check it out. The show centers around the protagonist Bo’s quest to find out more about herself, her history and where she comes from. Bo is fae – a succubus to be exact – who is always running and hiding while bodies pile up. Until a fae detective, Dyson, finds a body and eventually finds Bo. Oh I forgot about one of my favourite parts of the show. Kenzi, Bo’s best friend and manager – a thief who tries to teach Bo how to enjoy her abilities and possibly make a little money off them. The fae explain to Bo that every fae has an allegiance either to the dark or the light, this party provides the fae with a human occupation that is of use to the clan, and of course dental. This is where it gets interesting, the fae offer her security, knowledge and medical operations to help her control her killer urges but she turns them both down and chooses humans “freedom has it’s advantages too”. So Bo is caught in the middle, literally the girl who is lost to both sides and all eyes are on her.
Check it out there is a catch up marathon on Showcase this Sunday at 7pm.
