Lost Girl: Season 05, Episode 16, “Rise”

Two quick things before I get into the review.  Next week I plan to do a whole series overview and closing thoughts / episode ranking, of sorts. This is by far the longest show I’ve covered, and I’ve written much in depth about it, so I want to put my thoughts about it as a whole … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 05, Episode 12, “Judgement Fae”

Well, THAT was an utter disaster. Actually, not utter. The acting not only rose above the content, but was possibly some of the best work this series has seen, especially when you consider how many hoops were jumped through and sharks over. This episode is a mess of coincidences, arbitrary ‘tasks,’ impulsive moves, anticlimactic scenes, … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 4, Episode 13, “Dark Horse”

If Lorne’s bar were operating in LA right now, there would be literally millions of hits on shitty YouTube phone videos of demons singing, hundreds of people would have their profile pictures of themselves with their arms around Lorne and a goofy smile on their faces, it would be one of the ‘Top Ten Places … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 4, Episode 07, La Fae Époque

I don’t know how everyone reacts when a low-budget show does something like this episode. It begins with the cold open, where Dyson is apparently in custody, conveniently skipping the CGI, choreography, and breaking of things that would have theoretically accompanied his hulked-out fight with the Una Mens that the end of last episode suggested. … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 4, Episode 05, Let the Dark Times Roll

The episode picks up exactly where we left off, in the Circle Jerk of Doooooooooom. Written by Jeremy Boxen (“Faetal Attraction,” “Scream a Little Dream,” “Raging Fae,” and more) and directed by Ron Murphy (Only “Fae-de To Black” and “Those Who Wander,” ’til now), it pulls no punches and wastes little time. Some of the … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 3, Episode 04, “Fae-de To Black”

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. When a show opens with breathily drawn-out Oh. My. you definitely expect the next word to be God. And it wouldn’t be unwarranted. I shot a film last week where we had a limited budget and amount of time and crew. When we originally sat … Continue reading

Lost Girl – Season 3, Episode 03, ConFaegion

Opening scene: simple, right? Three actors, simple setup outdoors, some snark and smackdown, tada. Two camera teams [op and AC for each], audio [probably two, a lav’r / field mixer and boom mic op], a couple prop cement blocks, some drums of water to ensure mud, several standby clean wardrobe changes for Ksenia Solo, a … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 3, Episode 02, SubterFaenean

After ending on both the release of two seasons of will-they-won’t-they tension between Bo and Lauren, then Bo chi-sucking a guy and leaving him for dead, this episode opens with . . . Kenzi, Kenzi’s friend, and Vex going down into the sewers for a magic show. It makes you wait almost two minutes, and … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 3 Episode 1, Caged Fae

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. First things first: I wrote a whole post on the problem in this episode, and I’m leaving it all there and out of this review. If you want to talk about that aspect, please do so on that post. Totally aside from that, I’m guessing as … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 08, Death Didn’t Become Him

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. It’s only fitting an episode wholly preoccupied with death, resurrection, and immortality open with a body bag which contains a live Bo, whose immortality creates an interesting paradox between herself and those she loves. Also, who complains the body bag smells like feet. Lauren sneaks … Continue reading
