Looking At Lost Girl

Written By: Kellie - Aug• 11•12

So, not a book topic but I just finished Season 1 of Lost Girl and I want to take a second to talk about it. I know I’m an entire season behind (here in Canada at least) but at least this means I’m a lot less likely to spoil anything for those of you not lucky enough to have seen it yet. I don’t really plan on going into detail anyways.

For those that don’t know, Lost Girl is a Canadian urban fantasy television show about a succubus just finding out she is fae and navigating the politics that come with both the light and dark sides of this underground socierty, along with a rag-tag group of friends… obviously.

After books, television holds a very special place in my heart. I think it’s probably fair to say I just really love a good story, no matter the medium.It has been so much fun seeing one of my all time favorite genres (while I seem to read nothing but YA lately, four of my top five authors earned their spots with amazing urban fantasy) come to life. I don’t think I would have enjoyed it quite as much if this had been one of my favorite series re-invisioned for TV. Part of the fun was falling in love with a new paranormal world.

In Lost Girl, the term Fae encompasses all supernatural beings from werewolves to succubi and each individual has the chance to decide whether they will be light or dark fae, although neither side really cares about humans. In the first episode our main character Bo finds out that she is a succubus and everything that entails and then must make her choice. I highly recommend this series, although I’m sure a lot of you are already watching it… I always seem to be the last one to notice these kind of awesome things.

I love that we’re seeing more and more of these awesome genres that are immensely popular in books come to the silver screen. I’ve recently gotten into Continuum, which has several healthy doses of dystopia mixed in and I am super excited for Revolution which is starting in the fall and is 100% post-apocalyptic.
