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.

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

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?

Hit the Lights, Lost Girl

Can you see K.C. Collins in the screen shot above? He’s there, down at the end of the line, next to Ksenia Solo, who is also hard to see.

Here’s another image with K.C. Collins that presumably involves outside light. Still hard to see, isn’t he?

Maybe it’s because of budget issues, as mehlsbells suggests, but Lost Girl is generally dark. I don’t mean only in story line, I mean in terms of actual light. Things are hidden away in shadows most of the time. Screen shots that I use from Lost Girl in my recaps have to be run though Photoshop and brightened considerably or they would look like nothing more than a dark blur on a web page.

That means that K.C. Collins is often so badly lit that you can’t even see him.

He’s in the cast, he’s an important character, he deserves to be seen. Let us see him! Light him with a spotlight or something so that he pops out of the shadows. There has to be a way.

I know filming for season 4 is finished, but I’m hoping there will be a season 5. And, in season 5, I’m hoping that K.C. Collins will be visible when he’s in a shot.

Look at the contrasting dark and light skinned faces in this shot from Orange is the New Black. Granted OITNB isn’t using darkness and shadow like Lost Girl. OITNB is in a brightly lit prison. However, every face is equally visible, no matter the skin tone.

That’s all I want. I want K.C. Collins to be equally visible in scenes he’s in.

Come on Showcase, come on Emily Andras, come on Jay Firestone – do something about the lighting on K.C. Collins.
