MDP ON TV: Lost Girl

Lost Girl was kindly given to me by the SwanCon committee for being a guest. It took me a while to start watching it and I found the first one or two episodes a bit clunky. I really kept watching because Kristen Holden-Ried was convincing in his role.

By halfway through the first disc though, I found I was enjoying it, and there is no doubt there are some similarities between Bo and my fictional character Parrish Plessis – namely her sexual appetite.

Ksenia Solo as Kensi has some great dialogue and her gothicy street kid character is lively, though at times a little over acted. Still some classics lines like “In my defence, the truth is for pussies..”

I’m not sure if I’ll pursue season 2 as the focus shifts towards Bo’s relationship with the human doctor, Lauren, and for some reason this character doesn’t work for me. Not sure if I would find it so entertaining without the Bo and Dyson tension.

Overall, its fun and the fae/dark fae stories are amusing but Holden-Reid definitely makes the series for me so far (oh, and Bo’s crazy mother, Saskia.)

 

  • There is an incredible body swap episode in S2, and there’s enough interesting stuff going on between the group that it’s worth watching I think. I’m holding out for S3 to see what happens :3

  • Thanks Ju, good to know. I’ll probably give it a go!
