Lost Girl on SyFy: Is it worth watching?

Yes, another "worth watching" thread!

I never even heard of this show but now I see promos for it. It seems to be in its third year!

What say you?

I like it. If you don't mind a little supernatural and you like asskicking women it might be for you.

There have been 2 seasons so far.

Is it a series that you have to start at the beginning to catch on to?

I vote it is worth watching, but I find a lot of it pretty cheesey.

2 seasons have aired in Canada. They are probably on the second season on SyFy. I watched the show off downloads from Canada broadcasts.

  • Yes, it is worth watching.
  • You should start at the beginning because there are some things that are established early on that continue through the series (although there are standalone eps).
  • Yes, SyFy just began the second season (I believe last week).

It's one of my weekly guilty pleasures...

This is good to hear. I downloaded seasons 1 and 2 from TVTorrents but the season 2 files just crapped out when converting them to mpeg. Only 1 episode from season 1 crapped out. So I can watch season 1 and record season 2 and won't miss anything (well, I'll miss one episode).

Next Monday's episode is Season 2, episode 4, "Mirror, Mirror". So you'll have missed 3 episodes of season 2.

The show is... uneven. There are a lot of odd character choices throughout season 2 that made no sense, but it's mostly enjoyable fluff.

Actually, "Mirror, Mirror" was last Monday's episode, and next Monday's is "BrotherFae of the Wolves" which is S02E05...

crap. That means I only have 2 out of 4 episodes from season 2.

Well, I guess I'll start with season 1 and worry about season 2 if I like the show!

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned the T&A on this show. It's not only well done, with very attractive actors, it's even justified by the plot since the main character is a succubus!!!

I enjoy it. It's not great, but every so often it manages to be surprising or clever. I do feel like the lead character is miscast. I think it would work better if she and Kenzie (her sidekick) had their roles reversed. The lead doesn't have enough charisma to be a lead, and Kenzie is wasted as a sidekick - she could carry her own show.

I think the show is a great concept. This underground world is very interesting to me. I think it just needs like 3 times the budget for better writers and actors.

I also don't really like the woman that plays Bo. She doesn't really seem all that succubus-y to me.

I would agree, except that the backstory had the character growing up 'normal' somewhere in the bible belt (Kansas, I think).

Remember, until she found out about the fae, Bo had no idea why every person she ever had sex with, ended up dead. I would imagine that this would give anyone a complex, much less someone who was raised in a religious environment.

I agree! She’s very cute and very funny.
The show is a bit underwhelming at times, but overall it’s a nice little treat.

A bigger budget and even being produced by HBO/Showtime is a great idea. Oh well…

I do like how Bo uses “sexual energy” both to get information and to recover from injuries.

I also think Bo is a good choice for Succubus but agree that Kensi could have her own show and succeed.

I luvs me some Kenzi.

Lost Girl is a good, not great sow. I like it. It's definitely low budget.

Where's the T&A? I've yet to see any T or A in the SyFy version.

No. You've seen naked breasts and butts on Lost Girl? That's T&A to me. I watch Spartacus.

I finally watched the first 5 episodes of season 1. I like it. It's going to be a fun little show to watch. I'll plow through seasons 1 and 2 in about 3-4 weekends during this summer.

And there was part of an A showing in the pilot, too bad I can't look forward to more (or any T, for that matter!).

Correction, I only watched the first 3 episodes, not 5. And wow
Spoiler:
the threesome in episode 4 was pretty nice. Side boobage!


so, in a sense, we've had some A and some T

That's what I was trying to say in a previous post, but someone (see post #16) vehemently disagreed....

I figured I would settle the argument. I made sure about the veracity of my post by watching and re-watching those scenes

Now I must do so, too, to verify the veracity of your statement....

I like the characters. The sex puts the plot to a halt just as it does in movies.

I got a little bored with this show by the end of season 2. I did marathon the show though. So, I might have just watched too much at once.

I'm obtaining the first episode now. We'll see if it catches me again.

This. There's not a lot of great talent on the show, but Kenzie is quite good, as are 1 or 2 of the supporting cast/recurring characters. It took me several episodes to get into it but my husband liked it from the beginning. It does improve with time.

I watched the Pilot on Netflix. It was corny. I'm trying to decide if I want to watch more.
