I have a new TV obsession and it’s called Lost Girl; a Canadian show that has a great spark, is really funny and has loads of action.

I mean, what’s not to like; sexy succubus heroine, smoking hot fae men, a hilarious sidekick that keeps reminding me of my sister…toppled with fantasy-adventure, sprinkled with crime fighting served with a side dish of kick ass action. Yes ladies and gentlemen, that is what you can get if you watch Lost Girl, the new hit TV series by SyFy.

The series is originally produce by Showcase and began airing in Canada in September, 2010 with the pilot episode beginning airing in the USA this past January, 2012 through the SyFy channel.

The main character is Bo, who has been on the run most of her life; ever since, as a teenager, she discovered that her love can kill. Her problem is that when she gets hungry, the unfortunate person that happens to be the object of her lust winds up dead. At least they go out with a smile on their faces. See, Bo’s lust drains the person of their life force, if too much is drained the person dies (full of lust and apparently happy, but dead nonetheless). She finally discovers what she is and why she kills, but now that she knows about the existence of a whole new race (the Fae) that predates humanity she must learn to survive in both the human world as well as the highly political Fae world.

The Fae is the race that every creature belongs to, be it werewolves, vampires, banshees, trolls, succubi, sirens, or any others. The Fae is divided into two clans the Light Fae and the Dark Fae (the “good” and the “bad”). Every single Fae is born into either clan, and when they reach maturity a ceremony is celebrated in which they must choose a side. Nowadays the celebration is more of a sort of sweet sixteen or bar mitzvah; originally it involved a series of challenges to test both the will and the strength of the individual. Bo is the only Fae ever raised by humans and as such she has no clan and no affiliation. As a free agent she is the only one that can come and go between both Light and Dark territories, unfortunately that leaves her completely unprotected and basically free game for whoever wants to attack her; such is the life of the only free agent.

In the course of the pilot episode Bo gains an unexpected friendship and sidekick, Kenzi. Like I said above, Kenzi reminds me of my sister in her goofy, quirky and sarcastic views towards the world around her. A girl with a great heart and is fiercely loyal, will go to great lengths to aid Bo in her journey and their new share life.

If you like fantasy and crime shows this one will hook you and won’t let you go. You can catch up with the series in either SyFy (if you are in the USA) or in Showcase (if you are in Canada). Currently, season 1 is airing every Monday at 10:00 PM on SyFy while part 2 of season 2 is airing every Sunday at 9:00 PM on Showcase.
