The still curiously named SyFy channel has imported a Canadian series titled Lost Girl and it is showing Mondays at 10 pm EST. Similar to the import of the first season of Sanctuary, the channel has snagged an existing quirky show that is a modest hit for its ever changing lineup.
Lost Girl is the very sexy tale of a mysterious woman named Bo. For the last decade, Bo has roamed the country feeding her hunger for human energy but not understanding it. It’s a hunger that is fatal to the human involved.
Bo is discovered by the two factions of the Fae, the show’s amalgam of mythic creatures from a number of different cultures. She learns that she is a succubus, a supernatural being that feeds of the life force of humans. The Light and Dark factions of the Fae put her to a test, which she survives with the assistance of a new found human friend, a teen named Kenzi. In an act of defiance, Bo chooses neither side and thus begins the series.
The Light and the Dark war with each other. They also intend to keep their secret hold over humanity, no matter what. Dyson, a Fae working in the police force, acts as a guide and mentor for Bo, and his true motivation remains to be seen.
The show carries a TV M rating, and it was well deserved in the first episode. Bo feeds in manner that feels sexual and gratifying to the human, whether clothing is on or off. There is a lot of very attractive skin shown, and Bo appears willing to feed of men and women, to add a bi-sexual kink to the process.Bo is played by Canadian actress Anna Silk. She did a fine job in the first episode, displaying the confusion and conflict that Bo feels. Her good looks and athleticism are also note worthy. At age 37, she has a decade plus of work on her resume.
Street urchin sidekick Kenzi is played by Latvian Ksenia Solo. At age 24, she has been working for over a decade. She portrays Kenzi, a somewhat street smart and tech savvy teen, with gusto.
Providing the eye candy for female viewers is Kris Holden-Ried, who plays Dyson. A year older than Silk, he has had been a model and had a nearly twenty year career in show business. He was also a world-class athlete, competing for Canada on the Canadian National Pentathlon Team (riding and fencing).
This is going to be a must watch for fans of supernatural tales. The beasties will be drawn from a variety of cultures so there will be some the viewer will recognize and other will be new. The drama will take Bo into the world of Fae and into her own background as she learns to control her power and discover herself.
