Lost Girl: Season 4 Redux

Originally posted on mehlsbells:

I was going to write a more thorough breakdown, but then I was invited to talk to Drinks at the Dal in their season overview podcast (which you can watch live this Sunday and/or listen to later). We’re going to talk about structure and pacing and motifs and color and character arcs and all those sorts of things, so rather than redundantly repeat myself, I’ll just give you a quick intro and get into speculation – er, answering questions.

The show has certainly morphed from being more like Buffy to more like LOST. Both are things I love, but are also very, very different. The back end of this season was definitely overloaded with Big Picture plot, (though the climactic plot was more clearly spread out through the season than last), and it also suffered Spider-man 3 syndrome of having a lot of villains in a close space. If I…

Talking Lost Girl at LGBT Film & TV Conference

Originally posted on UNALIGNED:

Happy October! Here’s some interesting and/or unusual Lost Girl-related news for you all. On October 30, three of us who are associated and/or friendly with UNALIGNED are going to present a panel about Lost Girl at the 2014 Film and History Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. How did this happen? We’re still not sure, but Doccuficient is somehow responsible.

Hopefully our panel won't put everyone to sleep

Our panel is in the LGBT track, Queer Film and Television I, and is titled:

“Low Budget, High Aspirations:  Lost Girl and the Paradoxes of Representation in a ‘Post-Queer’ Universe.”

Here’s who is presenting, with a brief bio of each of us as well as the abstracts that we submitted for our papers:

Lost Girl: A Guilty Pleasure You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About

Originally posted on Random Blather:

We all have guilty pleasures. Maybe you’re a hardcore leftist intellectual whose partner publishes dense books on comparative religion and you read People Magazine on the sly; maybe you’re a professor of Music specializing in Medieval religious music and you follow Miley Cyrus on Twitter and have every one of her albums; maybe your an avowed fan and proponent of the detective novel as major literature, a member of the Baker Street Irregulars, and a regular speaker on the influence of Doyle on modern detective fiction, but you have every episode of Scooby Doo on your Tivo. I dunno what yours is; I just know that people have them.

For me it’s usually some TV show or other. I can rationalize it; for example, I can make a good case that my love of Kim Possible shows my feminist leanings, my support of…

Mistresses Season 2 Finale Recap: Bride Goeth Before a Fall

Originally posted on TVLine:

Warning: If you have yet to watch the Mistresses Season 2 finale, please skip this recap and head to another TVLine story. Everyone else, dive right in — the water is perfect!

Her long white gown flutters in the Pacific Ocean breeze. She runs to him, reckless and breathless, and God (or perhaps a really astute stylist) intervenes, making his tattered old t-shirt magically disappear, revealing a torso smoother and sturdier than the Quartz kitchen countertop of your home-design fantasies.

Suddenly, she is astride him — their lips locked, their hands intertwined, her hair looking like it’s ready for a starring role in an Herbal Essences commercial. The soundtrack swells. And then, as cruelly as the suns rays taunt her sinewy limbs when she forgets to slather them in SPF, the thought pops…

Lost Girl S04E02 – Sleeping Beauty School

Originally posted on The Mind Reels:


After the delightful WTF romp that was last week’s season opener, the Fae world is still missing the unaligned succubus of Bo (Anna Silk), but her friends now aware that she’s missing are pulling out all the stops to find her.

The second episode of the season gives us great character beats right from the get-go, as well as setting up future betrayals, revelations and the beginning of a fantastic series of guest stars that are populating this ever-expanding fantastic world.

First up, it was delightful to see Mind Reel’s friend Christine Horne as one of the menacing, Una Mens, as they conduct their rather extensive ‘interviews’ as they learn what has been going on. Also on deck is Mia Kirshner, after a brief appearance last week, as we begin to learn more about who she is, her powers, and also that we have no idea where her allegiances lay.

Aaah. So, I’m not dead. See, here are 5,000 or so words to prove I’m alive. This will disappoint a lot of people because it’s Doccubus.

Jen Gray asked. Then I went and watched Lost Girl and… well, you know… hot girl-on-girl action and all. So yeah, it’s Doccubus. I don’t know if I’ll ever write any more of this particular fandom, but this story wormed its way out on a three-hour drive while I was trying to write something else.

Below the line is a Doccubus explanation for those who want to read but don’t know the fandom AT ALL. For those who do, this takes place sometime in the first few episodes of Season 2. Pre-2.07 at any rate.

Day 4 #LiveBelowTheLine challenge

My day started out just like any other day. I got up at 6:30, got dressed for work, then grabbed a pack of 4 peanut butter crackers and sat on my bed. While I ate my crackers, I watched some Lost Girl. The only change to my usual routine was that I drank a glass of tap water instead of my usual glass of Big Red. While at work I ate 8 more peanut butter crackers for my two 10 minute breaks.

At noon I went home for lunch and had half a pack of Honey Roasted Turkey sandwich meat on 2 slices of bread and a jello pudding cup. While I was eating, I watched some more Lost Girl! Which, in case anyone reading this post didn’t know, is an amazing show with an amazing cast.

Work ended at 4 and after I got home, I relaxed for awhile then fixed a package of Ramen Noodles with 2 slices of buttered bread. The rest of my night was pretty routine. I just relaxed and watched some tv

I can’t believe I have almost concluded my #livebelowtheline 5 day challenge. It has been quite an experience. For anyone who has started their challenge today, I just want to say how proud I am to be a part of such an amazing group of people. As Zoie Palmer always says, we’re all in this together.

Day 3 Halfway Through My “Live Below The Line” Challenge!

Well, my 3rd day of my living below the line challenge is almost over. I woke up late again today, so I decided to just eat 2 meals. I do that a lot on weekends cause I usually spend a lot of time on my computer or watching tv and I get too busy to eat. I know, my life is so exciting…lol. 
I took a shower as soon as I got up, and then spent time with grandchildren again. I only get to see them every other weekend, so I try to spend as much time with them that I can. I had my 1st meal at 3 today, which again consisted of bacon on toast. I could eat bacon every day, it just tastes so darn good. I ate my last meal at 7. I ate 10 pizza rolls and drank another 8 ounces of Big Red.
.ImageIt’s been hard not being able to grab something to eat whenever I want, but it’s good to know that I can make it through the day on what I’ve been eating. I can only imagine what it’s like to have to live on $1.50 for everything, not just food. I’ll be going back to work tomorrow, so I’ll be eating more stuff. If I don’t eat something for each break, I get all shaky and have trouble doing my job.
I want to thank everyone who donates to my individual challenge. I am also part of team Fangirl US, so it also helps the whole team overall with every donation I get. Well, I’m off…gotta get ready for bed. 

Day 2 April 27th #belowtheline.

 I’m a late sleeper on the weekends, so my 1st meal wasn’t til noon. It consisted of 4 slices of bacon on 2 slices of toast. I spent the next few hours watching tv & spending time with my grand children. I started feeling hungry again around 3 so I ate another bacon on toast sandwich, this time consisting of 3 slices of bacon & 1 slice of toast. As you can probably tell, I love bacon! My grandkids left for a while so I decided to keep busy & watch some of the tv shows that I’d recorded during the week. Around 7 I had my last meal of the night. It consisted of ramen noodles and 8 ounces of Big Red soda. With my previous meals I was drinking tap water, so I decided to drink some Big Red pop since It fit into my daily allowance of 1.50 for the day. I usually drink lots of Big Red, so not being able to drink it while I’m taking the challenge was really hard for me. It tasted soooo good…lol. Image
My Big Red addiction is comparable to Zoie Palmer and others addiction to coffee. I wake up every morning and have to have Big Red. I drink it at breakfast, on breaks at work, and almost as soon as I get home from work I fix me a glass of it. A 2 liter of Big Red usually lasts me for 2 days, so only having 8 ounces in my daily allowance of 1.50 is harder for me than figuring out what foods I can eat. 
By the time anyone reads this post I will have pretty much finished my 3rd day of my Live Below The Line challenge. I will finish mine 2 days after most people are just beginning theirs. I just want to wish anyone starting their challenge Monday who are reading this post good luck.
