Lost Girl: Season 1 Wrap Up, A Brief Look Forward

I’m wrapping up the Season 1 recaps with a season overview, as I will for S2 and S3, but first a note: Season 4 will be premiering in November. Simple math shows there aren’t enough Mondays between now and then to catch up on all the episodes between here and where I started recapping. My … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 1, Episode 13, “Blood Lines”

Editor’s note: You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. Trigger warning: frank discussion of rape and sexual assault. While most of LG speaks about assault in metaphors, I’m talking about Aife’s rape of Dyson quite literally. If you wish to skip this section, you can resume reading after the picture of Kenzi reading. … Continue reading

Sexuality On Television

As an integral part of the human experience, sexuality should be portrayed in every medium, but how it’s portrayed is complicated. There’s no doubt sexuality on television is a thorny subject. Between network standards, thoughtless objectification, rape culture proliferation, the list of problems go on.  One of the reasons I’m fascinated by Lost Girl is that, … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 1, Episode 10, The Mourning After

Definite spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. Mints, chocolate chip cookies, a manicure kit, nail polish, weapons, angry music, and pinot. This is obviously Kenzi’s heartbreak first aid kit, and Bo is getting familiar with it. Oh, and pizza and ‘weapon waxing.’ Sounds about right. The jump cut is a couple kissing in an alley. Why … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 01, Episode 04, Faetal Attraction

Editor’s note: after reviewing Lost Girl episodes 03.05-03.13, I’m starting from the top. Rather than ignore everything that’s transpired, I intend to comment how recurring events, shot selection, etc., play into the show so far. I’ll be careful, but there may be spoilers through Season 3. You can find all reviews here. Bo: Stay back! BOOM * … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 3, Episode 13, Those Who Wander

SPOILER ALERT I generally try to time my reviews to coincide with the American airing, but as ShowCase already aired and SyFy is not airing until next week, I’m not going to wait. Read at your own risk, but I will not be holding back. This is your last and only warning. I mean it.  … Continue reading

Lost Girl: Season 3, Episode 12, Hail, Hale

Last week I talked about how the episode raised more issues than the show could fully address, and how I was OK with that; it doesn’t have to deeply psychoanalyze the harmful effects of children absorbing gender stereotypes from their parents, it can introduce it as a well-turned joke and move on.  This episode, though, … Continue reading
