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 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 02, Episode 18, “Fae-nted Love”

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. I love how this episode brings back the idea of blood’s enthrallment, ‘the power in the blood,’ and goes from being a weird Ryan sidetrack to exploring how Bo could be a demigod if she put her mind to it. I hate how this episode turns Bo … 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 13, “Barometz. Trick. Pressure.”

You know the drill. Possible spoilers through 03.13. All reviews here. Having found out partway through production the season had been extended to 22 episodes, some shuffling had to be done. This episode manages to integrate plots fairly well with the housekeeping of getting Zoie Palmer and Ksenia Solo out for a few weeks (presumably on … 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 03, Scream A Little Dream

One of my favorite episodes of the season, “Scream A Little Dream” effortlessly combines dark and fluffy, references the ongoing triangle without making it overly dramatic, showcases several new sets including Lauren’s house and the Ash’s throneroom, establishes the sort of presence Lachlan will be, is subtle about some things (the doorman pouring sugar into his coffee foreshadows his Sandman powers) and not so much about others (anything involving Mumford), and features not one but four new-to-us Fae.

The Mare, our Monster of the Week, is in some ways closer to the original myth of the succubus than Bo . . .

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
