My Love Letter to Lost Girl After 5 Years of Fabulous TV

This is my love song, my big thank you, to ALL the actors, crew, costume designers, make up artists, writers, producers, directors and creative minds behind Lost Girl. I love what you created.

I’ve been a fan of Lost Girl since the first episode, when I fell hard for the show. There was one simple reason then, and it has remained true for all 5 years that the series lasted. Characters. I love the characters. Continue reading “My Love Letter to Lost Girl After 5 Years of Fabulous TV”

Lost Girl: S5 E16 Rise

The Lost Girl finale, “Rise,” staged the final battle between good and evil (for now . . . ) and gave fans a smile-inducing happy ending for the series. The image above, with Bo (Anna Silk) right on the line between the darkness and the light sums it all up nicely.

So I guess I don’t need to write the recap. Oh, wait, you want details.

Spoilers ahead! Continue reading “Lost Girl: S5 E16 Rise”

One More Lost Girl Teaser

Lost Girl starts again on Canadian TV on Sept. 6, so we are getting teasers now. Here’s the latest one.

The first preview contained some stuff from earlier episodes of the show that we’d already seen. This one is all new scenes.

We know Lost Girl would be nothing without Anna Silk. Here she’s her usual heroic leader and also involved in some sort of long distance chi swap with Zoie Palmer’s Lauren.

Tamsin survived the lightning strike from Zee (Amanda Walsh) so Rachel Skarsten is still around looking healthy. I’m happy indeed to see Ksenia Solo back with the gang, fighting fires and doing all the other gang adventures. Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson is still there leading the fight, trailed by son Mark (Luke Bilyk) and the daddy from hell (Eric Roberts). We get a glimpse of Trick (Rick Howland) in this preview but no hints about where Vex (Paul Amos) or Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) might be.

Every time Anna Silk is interviewed about the end of the series, she comments that they finished “really strong” and in a good place for everyone, so I have high hopes for how it will all turn out.

I need to get busy and review the first part of season 5 so I can remember what’s going on in the plot.

Lost Girl: New Promo for the last of season 5

Showcase released a promo called “The End Begins” for the last half of Lost Girl season 5. The show begins on Canadian TV on September 6. It probably won’t show up on SyFy in the US for some time after that.

What can we learn from the promo? We know Bo is as kick ass as ever. In shades.

Kris Holden-Ried and Eric Roberts

We do know that Bo isn’t through with her father just yet.

Ksenia Solo in Lost Girl

We do know our favorite sidekick will return, at least for a bit.

Some of the promo is recycled from the beginning of season 5, so no news there. I think the reference to happy endings is meant to mislead us. What do you see in this promo that I’m missing?
