I once was lost, but now am found, still searching for the rest of my self.
Imagine waking up next to your first love to find him dead, not knowing what happened to him. Or any one you make love to for that matter… Oops
Meet Bo, a girl searching for answers as to what she is and who her real parents are. Bo is a succubus, a female supernatural being that can entrance people with a caress, through a kiss steal people’s life-force and through intercourse can feed from sexual energy and heal. She has chosen not to choose a side but to live neutral between Light; a mixed supernatural clan lead by the Ash, more peaceful and respectful of humans, and Dark; a mixed supernatural clan lead by the Morrigan, not necessarily evil but certainly not nice, rule breakers who love to toy and manipulate humans, Fae.
“ It’s kind of tough growing up thinking you might have a shot at being prom queen and then find out that you’re part of some ageless secret race that feeds on humans.”
Now filming its fifth season, Lost Girl, has captured audiences across Canada and abroad, delving in its atmosphere from mystical to physiological to psychological and beyond. It is a Canadian show with Canadian actors; as well as the soundtrack in each episode features mainly indie artists, many Canadian. Rated 18 A for its many sexual scenes, and violence, many fans of all ages have been tuning into this supernatural drama mystery crime.
Bo (Anna Silk), with the help of her human doctor/scientist girlfriend, Lauren (Zoie Palmer), who works for the Light Fae, previously owned by the Ash, learn to control her powers. “ The last two nights you’ve woke up screaming. Is committing to me that terrible?”
Kenzie (Ksenia Solo) is Bo’s human bestie and sidekick who created a detective agency to help humans and Fae with “strange” problems. Kenzie is also a main source of the comic relief, “You can freaking control people by touch and not in a creepy hand job way. That is awesome!”
Bo: Nice decor. Early Tolkien?
Trick: Where do you think he got it from?
The series’ creatures are taken straight from real folklore and legends, from all types of cultures. You never know what might pop up in a future episode. Youth can relate to the characters as each has their own story of struggles, including love, loss and some kick ass fighting on the side. The sexuality in the show is really natural and raw, especially with our succubus Bo being bi-sexual with a lesbian human girlfriend.
Through the cases that Bo and Kenzie take, Bo learns more about her past as she battles with creatures of the Fae world. She finds herself changing once again as things begin to get serious fast.
If this cast of characters peek an intrigue, then catch Lost Girl on Showcase or Syfy.
