Review of Lost Girl

60 minutes

'Lost Girl' follows supernatural seductress 'Bo' (Anna Silk), a 'Succubus' who feeds on the sexual energy of mortals. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door - until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the 'Fae', creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin and find her birth mother. (Easier said than done, as you might expect.)

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This latest episode, "Rise" s5e16, was one of the best in the series. It was a fantastic way to introduce a new character and a new theme/paradigm. Everything about this episode was well crafted and unfolds many levels of meaning as I recall it again and again.

In spite of the gaudy, overly made up curvaceous buxom female characters, and ripped male characters, the acting is sufficient and the character development of struggling with free choice toward wisdom makes this series worth watching. The plot continues to be intriguing, and the gay and straight love relationships breaks new ground on TV. Leave it to the Canadians!

Ultimately, I enjoy the theme of embracing the dark side with love and continuing to choose the good. No need to divide and hate those who disagree with your value system. Just a cautious embrace to know and love friend and enemy alike.
