Recently I had a conversation with a friend of mine regarding the explosion of the fantasy genre in film, which is happing for some time now. We were discussing about fantasy books and the adaptation made for them – such as Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series – and he recommended me to watch Lost Girl, stating that I will enjoy it because it is similar to Clare’s books.
Lost Girl is a Canadian supernatural crime drama television series, that was released on September 12, 2010 and recieved a fourth season coming out this February. This television series was created by Michelle Lovretta and it presents the story of Bo (Anna Silk) a young woman with incredible powers that discovers she is a succubus in a world in which myths are true. Together with her human best friend Kenzi (Ksenia Solo), Bo opens a private eye company, in order to help those whose problems are out of the ordinary.
This TV series is lacking in some criteria, being visible in the first season that not a lot of money was put into it and the acting was sloppy at first, but what it is lacking in some points it is gaining in others. The cases Bo and Kenzi take on are quite entertaining and the characters are very well put together. For me this show is a combination of Psych (2006 – ) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003). It has the mystery and attractiveness of detective/ private eye stories and the mystical, fantastical world of the supernatural creatures, also it can be incredibly funny.
Momentarily I am at the second season and I am slightly confused, because it seems that the main story is forgotten. They draw you in whit the first two episodes, which gives you information about what is going to happen in the season and it gets you excited about it, leaving you empty until episode 7. The same thing happened in season 1 and it just left me wondering, if those episodes are stalling for time or they actually have information that adds to the main story of the series.
I really enjoy this series and I really do not want it to be like Ghosts Whispers (2005-2010). Overall I have fallen for this show and I have my friend to thank for telling me about it. The only similarities that I found with The Mortal Instruments series, is that both female leads are unaware of their true nature and that both have really good looking guys helping them out with their quest of selfhood. Awesome story, awesome characters and the acting/filming/ props get better with time. I recommend this one for all you fantasy/detective lovers out there. Enjoy!
