Lost Girl: Season 4, Episode 02, Sleeping Beauty School

Right off, let me explain why I love the last episode (4.01), but call out this episode as so much fluff and filler . . .

Lost Girl: Season 4, Episode 01, In Memoriam

This is probably a terrible episode to start with if you’re watching the show for the first time. It’s an episode full of fakeouts, callbacks, fanservice, fanteasing, and beautiful new sets, carried entirely on the lovely shoulders of Ksenia Solo. If you’re just jumping in, you’re probably still confused. This review is not going to … 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 2, Episode 22, Flesh and Blood

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. Besides not being a pun, I’m speculating last episode’s title is supposed to signify not just facing the dark, and not just a shaky alliance with Dark fae, but Bo’s literal start of transformation Into The Dark. As Lauren notes, Bo is more powerful than … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 20, Lachlan’s Gambit

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. It’s been pointed out that I give Lost Girl a pass sometimes. At this point in my career, I’ve worked on mostly low-budget sets. Even the SAG-approved, big-network, name-actors shows I’ve worked on have had to get incredibly creative when it comes to workarounds. A … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 17, The Girl Who Fae’d With Fire

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. One of Lost Girl‘s running sight gags is Bo pulling her knife on guys. Specifically Lachlan, when he’s waving his Ashhood about. This episode starts with two girls crossing swords, and almost stabbing an alarmed Nate with one. It’s more about their bluster and Kenzi’s … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 14, “Midnight Lamp”

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. The opening shot (not counting the cutaway to a closer shot so we can see Bo’s befudlement) is classic Lost Girl: wide shot with deep depth of field, lots of objects in the foreground, subject and camera moving at the same time, camera landing, and … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 10, Raging Fae

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. After a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am and walk-and-talk rundown, we get a shot framed to suggest covert surveillance, and then the obvious camera shutter visuals and sound in case you missed it. Mysterious Woman Photog tails Bo and Kenzi as they go meet Lauren, who is starting to look … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 09, Original Skin

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. At some point, every long-running show has a bottle episode, and every sci-fan show with the remotest hint of camp has a body switching episode. (Heck, Charmed has one every dozen episodes or so.) “Original Skin” kills both birds with one stone. Bottle Episode Step 1: … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 2, Episode 02, I Fought the Fae (and the Fae Won)

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. After a bad breakup, everybody needs a Kenzi. Girl knows how to treat emotional trauma. Girl is a little less sure how to deal with shock and outright denial. Bo is convinced she and Dyson aren’t really broken up, Dyson’s just a little broken, and … Continue reading
