The story of Lost Girl takes place in a world where humans unknowingly share their world with the Fae, creatures of varied races that resemble the mythical creatures of human lore. The story of the show revolves around a succubus named Bo and her journey through life as she discovers who she is and where she comes from; hence the name of the show “Lost Girl” refers to Bo’s search for her place in the world of the humans and the Fae (which are further divided into the Light and Dark Fae). As a neutral Fae, Bo decides to help both humans and Fae that are in need of her services.


Lost Girl
In the second season of Lost Girl, the order between the Light and Dark Fae is disrupted due to several occurrences. Because of this, Bo and her friends are thrown into the conflict between these two supernatural sides. Ultimately, the bonds between Bo and her buddies are tested as they face their greatest challenge yet, the Garuda.

Lost Girl
Lost Girl is part supernatural show, part crime drama and part comedy. The supernatural part of the show feels a little campier than some of the current American produced supernatural themed shows, but not overly so. The overarching story for the show, while not the most original out there, presents an interesting enough narrative filled with some quirky and unique Fae; my favorite one from this season was the Brownie that pretty much did everything that was asked of him, so long as you kept his belly full of cereal.

As for the “who-done-it” parts of the show, the cases are usually pretty interesting. However, if you have watched crime dramas before, you may find yourself correctly guessing the conclusion of the case before the end of the episode. The comedy is a mixed bag, sometimes the jokes come of as witty and sharp, at other times the writers appear to be trying too hard to be edgy and current with their jokes ; the latter can result in jokes that make you shake your head and/or groan rather than laugh.

Overall, Lost Girl is a fairly entertaining show. The constraints of being a  low-budget Canadian produced show keep this from being visually on par with Hollywood shows currently on TV. However, the show makes up for its shortcomings with some good laughs, an interesting setting and characters, some charm and a bit of fan service.
