SyFy's "Lost Girl" is one of the most inclusive shows on television, with strong, dynamoic lesbian and bisexual characters in prominent roles. Given the show's exemplary reputation when it comes to LGBT issues, fans and critics were particularly dismayed by a scene depicting anti-transgender violence. In "Caged Fae," its Season 3 premiere, "Lost Girl" heroine Bo intentionally got herself put into a supernatural women's prison in order to investigate a criminal plot.The jail was run by Amazons, who were impregnating the prisoners and selling their babies. Here's where things got offensive. At the end of the episode, Bo kissed the prison's warden, who appears to be female -- and then announced that she had beard stubble, and was biologically male. The Amazon guards descended on the warden, grabbing her crotch and violently dragging her away. The warden survives the assault. She is referred to using male pronouns for the duration of the episode.

If you've ever thought about online dating, be careful if you come across personal profiles that include the word "succubus." Chances are anyone fitting that description may not have your best interest at heart. Sure, they're great for a few laughs, but rarely do they exhibit the kind of behavior that leads to long-lasting relationships.Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, and one might be found on "Lost Girl," which begins its third season Monday, Jan. 14, on Syfy. Bo, played by the lovely Anna Silk, is a succubus who realizes what it takes to keep a relationship fresh -- namely killing any creature that might get in the way of her personal path of discovery. And in Season 3, that discovery finally has her picking a team. And by team, we mean, you know ... .Even if you don't know, it doesn't really matter; when we spoke to Silk recently she played coy.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/lost-girl-season-3-anna-silks-bo-knows-relationship-woes.html

Is Lost Girl ‘s Bo (Anna Silk) about to get in touch with her dark side ? It sure looks that way in the unsettling new season three trailer, which features Bo getting a little too enthusiastic about feeding. To make matters worse, the voice-over ominously intones, “I once was lost, but now I’m found.” You can watch the trailer for yourself below. Do you think Bo’s going to need an intervention this season? Read More... http://www.tvequals.com/2012/12/04/bo-gets-dark-in-the-new-lost-girl-season-3-trailer-video/
Linda Hamilton will guest star on Lost Girl Season 3 . This much we know. But what else can fans expect from upcoming episodes of this Syfy drama? I spoke to producer Jay Firestone and stars Kris Holden-Ried (Dyson) and Ksenia Solo (Kenzi) at Comic-Con and asked that exact question. Along with a few more... What can we expect in season 3? While we have seen a lot of the Light Fae world so far, we are going to see more of the Dark Fae world in Season 3, according to Firestone. We also will learn a bit more about Trick and Dyson, with Trick having chosen Dyson at some point. Why did show not come to U.S. until now? Firestone explained that he initially wanted the show to be shown in U.S., but the networks that offered to pick it up wanted to be able to edit it their way and he refused, wanting to keep the story intact. Is there a difference in the series being shown in the U.S.? Firestone said that airing on Syfy in the U.S. is 90 seconds shorter than the original version. Ironically, he doesn’t cut the items you think he would (sexuality, violence, etc). As mentioned above, he works to tell the same story, just 90 seconds shorter. It’s very tough to do sometimes. He did stress that Syfy is amazingly generous in allowing him to do all the edits AND we will get the 90 seconds back on the DVDs! On the sexual orientation and relationships of the show. Jay was clear that the relationships in the show were not about a woman being with a man or with another woman; it’s about a person being with another person, making a connection of the a heart. Kris went on to say that he really likes that the show doesn’t do sexual classifications and focuses on the relationships of the people. Will we see more of Kenzi’s back story? Jay confirmed that we will learn more of Kenzie’s back story and that she is much more complex that we initially believe she is. Also they have had a lot of fun with all of this. Look for a Wizard of Oz reference in Season 3 involving Kenzie. On their favorite episodes. Solo said that Episode 6 in Season 3 is her favorite. It involves Dyson and growling, but she would not say more. Holden-Ried liked two episodes from Season 2, first “BrotherFae of the Wolves” for getting a flashback to Dyson’s history and “Original Skin,” as the body swapping was a lot of fun to act. http://www.tvfanatic.com/2012/07/lost-girl-season-3-scoop-going-dark-fae/
