If you aren’t watching Lost Girl, rectify this immediately! Not watching Lost Girl is like missing out on a parade of puppies, kittens, and sloths- an epic event that shouldn’t be missed by anyone.
Showcase’s Lost Girl tells the story of succubus Bo (Anna Silk) who refuses to be molded into the Fae’s rigid societal rules. She quickly forms supportive relationships and sets out on her journey to find out about her past as well as fight for injustice. The good news is that there’s a fourth season in the works, and the bad news is…well, there is no bad news. Syfy announced the new season will premiere January 13, 2014 at 8pm. That’s not very far from now, giving you the perfect amount of time to catch up on the first three seasons.
One of the things I love the most about the show in general is the best friend relationship between Bo and Kenzi (Ksenia Solo). From the start they’ve had a loving, supportive relationship (that doesn’t revolve around only talking about men) that can be hard to find between women on television.
Season 3’s addition of Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) turned out to be a fantastic choice. She takes the job as Dyson’s (Kris Holden-Ried) partner at the Fae police station, which causes controversy seeing as how she’s a member of the Dark Fae. ooooOOOOOOooooohhh! At first it seems like she’s going to be an annoying thorn in everyone’s side, constantly sabotaging Bo and the Light Fae, but she morphs into an interesting, complex character that adds some intrigue and humor to this season. I hope Tamsin sticks around for a while.
Now you know that the show itself is worthy of watching, so let’s take a look at what the DVD/Blu-ray offers. First of all, it offers the full length, uncut episodes. People who watch Syfy’s version are missing out on some of the more explicit scenes- hubba hubba! The DVD/Blu-ray also has some special features including cast and crew interviews. Only one cast member is interviewed, however, and that’s Kris Holden-Ried. The other interviews are with executive producers, who may not be the face you see every week, but they can tell you a lot more about what’s going on with the show.
The Lost Girl 2012 San Diego Comic Con panel is also featured, as well as a behind the scenes image gallery. These are very nice additions and interesting, but I really would have liked to see a blooper reel. No TV show’s DVD/blu-ray set is complete without one! Still, Lost Girl is an excellent show, one of my favorites, and has only gained momentum as the seasons progress. Check out the DVD/Blu-ray available…pretty much everywhere.
