#LostGirl: Season 05, Episode 02, “Like Hell pt 2″

Originally posted on mehlsbells:

Cold open to a grave.

Shooting in a coffin doesn’t exactly allow for a lot of options, but the way the camera travels down Kenzi’s body is definitely reminiscent of the camera traveling down Bo’s naked-but-draped-in-a-sheet body from S1, the image which was used behind the opening credits for the first four seasons.

Twice in two episodes they subvert expectations about how they’d hold us in suspense for finding Kenzi. I don’t mind them not dragging it out, I’m just a little surprised.

Pleasantly surprised at first, as we get quickly to some Team Human shenanigans. Drinking vodka together, playing with mystical relics, Lauren unleashing a little physical whoopass, science lingo plus smartass jargon.

Beakers as alcohol containers: lovely touch.Nice reverse here. Just basics, executed well.

Unpleasantly surprised at the last, because it becomes apparent they needed to get Solo’s arc done with to usher her to the wings. Kenzi doesn’t even dress up her leaving as needing space, it’s presented as…

Lost Girl 5.01 – Like Hell, Part 1

Originally posted on UNALIGNED:

Last season there were many questions about changes in Bo’s personality. What happened to her? Why was she so strange? Why did she act so selfish and mean, even cruel at times? Why on earth did she fall in love with Rainer? Was there a “whammy?” etc., etc.

There is much that remain unclear about last season, and let’s face it, season 4 was not the show’s best. For the most part, it left fans confused and frustrated. But as I’ve written before, I choose to see at least some method in the madness that is Lost Girl. A madness I happen to be quite fond of. And as I’ve also said before, Lost Girl continually jumps from literal to metaphorical and back again. So while last season’s Rainer plot made little sense, and while Bo’s behavior seemed at times inexplicable, I will interpret both – Rainer and…

A Season Long Fae-Well to Lost Girl.

Originally posted on The Nerds Uncanny:


I must confess that I am trepidatious about the final season of Lost Girl, which premieres on Showcase at 9PM EST tonight in Canada. I watched the show from the very beginning of it’s airing on the SyFy channel and was so intrigued that I binge watched all of season 2 in 15 minute increments off of YouTube before the fourth episode of the first season officially aired. And if ‘The Powers That Be’ at Skiffy are reading, if I hadn’t, I’m not sure I would have stuck through season 1 to keep watching. But I loved the characters so much that I couldn’t get enough.

Then as Season 3 approached they promised to do one thing most supernatural shows avoid: have the heroine behave badly of her own accord. I, and most other fans, were looking forward to watching Bo explore her powers and her dark side. Alas, they…

Lost Girl Season 5: a Mehlsbells Wish List

Originally posted on mehlsbells:

Last pre-season I wrotea postwhich ended up with a couple hits, a couple misses, and some rather off-the-wall projections which somehow didn’t even come close to the insanity which was Rainer and the Sleeping Bullet Train of Yellow Doom.


This being Lost Girl‘s last season, and it being practically impossible to tell what direction they’re going to take from here (other than 1. daddy issues 2. Operation Rescue Kenzie, or ORK as I will be calling it from now on), I’m going to be less specific, and lay out some of my hopes for the season and characters. I’m going to do this in list form because I like lists, and in order of appearance since the show’s beginning because that gives me structure.



First Season Bo had her issues: impulse control, insensitivity, lapses in judgement (especially regarding her mother and Trick’s motives), etc. But…

Steampunk Granny Chats with “Lost Girl” Anna Silk

Originally posted on Biff Bam Pop!:


There is a show on the Syfy and Showcase channels that I’ve been watching for the last few years. It was certainly different than any show I’d seen in a long while and I was hooked on the first episode. The show I’m talking about is Lost Girl, and the actress who plays Bo, the kickass, loveable succubus trying to make her way in the Fae and human community, is the talented and beautiful Anna Silk.  When asked if I would like to interview Anna Silk for Biff Bam Pop, my reply was a loud, “Hell yeah!”

Lost Girl was created by developed by Prodigy Pictures in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza, and Michael Grassi with Grassi taking over as the showrunner for season five. Anna Silk hints at what will happen on the final season, premiering this…

Zoie Palmer [See Her Tonight on LOST GIRL]

Zoie Palmer on Lost Girl

(10 pm EST, Syfy)

We’ve saluted the amazing Anna Silk as the star of Lost Girl, and now we’re taking a hard look at Zoie Palmer as her cunning co-star. That’s mostly because Zoie plays the lovely lesbian Lauren Lewis. Her character is hot enough to get the bisexual succubus Bo (that’s Anna) into the sack for some potentially fatal sex. That complicates the plot of this bizarre Canadian show, since Bo is also attracted to manly Detective Dyson—who runs around as a werewolf when he isn’t busy solving crimes. Fans of Lost Girl have quickly claimed their teams. Zoie’s fans tend to refer to her character as “Dr. Hotpants,” and you’ll understand why after checking out this hot gallery of the icy blonde! (You’ll warm up to her more on Twitter.) We’ve got everything from shots of Zoie to video stills of…

It’s Time: Lost Girl as LGBT TV Game-Changer

Originally posted on UNALIGNED:

I told you that three of us who are either associated or friendly with UNALIGNED were going to present at the 2014 Film and History conference, where the theme was “Golden Ages.” The prompt for the LGBT track was “Given all of the representation we’re seeing, are we in a Golden Age for LGBT representation on TV?” Well, we did it! I also didn’t really tell you how it came about because I like to cultivate an air of mystery. Here’s the backstory:  my blog colleague Doccuficient had found this conference and recruited a group to present, assuring us that she would chair our panel and lend us an air of legitimacy. Then, in a classic bait-and-switch, she decamped halfway around the world with the flimsy excuse of ” groundbreaking research,” “awesome opportunity” and “beats unemployment.” I know, right? Some people. Anyway, we soldiered on without her and we’ll…

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…
