The complete first series of the Canadian fantasy drama following the life of a succubus who goes on the run after discovering her supernatural powers. Bo (Anna Silk) was raised as a normal child and had no cause to think of herself differently until her first sexual encounter revealed her other-worldly qualities (and led to the death of her boyfriend). Bemused to discover that she is one of the Fae, she sets out to discover contemporaries with similar powers and to help those in need while coming to terms with her new identity. The episodes are: 'It's a Fae, Fae, Fae, Fae World', 'When There's a Will, There's a Fae', 'Oh Kappa, My Kappa', 'Faetal Attraction', 'Dead Lucky', 'Food for Thought', 'ArachnoFaebia', 'Vexed', 'Fae Day', 'The Mourning After', 'Faetal Justice', '(Dis)Members Only' and 'Blood Lines'.

I have to admit I was a little sceptical about Lost Girl to begin with, but the more I watch it the more I love it. There's action, drama, romance, humour (Please sir may I have some beverage?) and even the characters I hate I love.

It's fun to watch and that, to me, is the most important thing. It keeps you interested and entertained without making you work to hard to keep up with the storyline, which is a problem with lot of the sci fi/fantasy things that are about right now.

I can't wait for the DVD so I can sit down and enjoy watching this series all over again.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series! Though the initial premise sounds a little trashy -it is far too smart for that. It's like a Neil Gaiman comic come to life- the fae are modern, realistic & gritty and Kenzi is a dead ringer for his version of 'Death'. Not many shows pull off the constantly thrilling/funny/sexy/clever/horrific balance this well - and unlike other shows it never drags for a moment. I punched the air with joy after the fantastic series finale when they showed the trailer for the second series starting in January. Hope they bring this DVD out soon as I cannot wait to watch it all over again in the meantime.... it's an absolute treasure box of a series, full of great lines and lovable characters. This succubus will soon suck you in!

I can't praise this show enough. Even my husband does not miss an episode.
The sense of humour, the situations in which the characters find themselves, everything is wrapped up in creativity and originality.
Most of the main characters are fey and they run around solving crimes committed by fey against the fey, occasionally a human gets hurt. Our main girl, Bo, is a succubus who has yet to discover the mystery surrounding her birth and subsequential abandomnment by her mother, and why she is so important to the future of the fey. Her best friend, Kenzi, is human, and and helps out using the skills she learned on the streets.
The other human is Lauren, a scientist owned by The Ash. Alongside Dyson, a warewolf, she is one of Bo's love interests.

All in all, an entertaining show that I greatly enjoy.

I think the first, and possibly most important observation, is that I don’t think that we, as a couple of 50/60 somethings, are amongst the target demographic for this series. Bo the succubus wanders around with her décolletage bursting out of her clothes all of the time, serving only to blatantly give teenage boys something to daydream about. Equally, the almost incomprehensibly nasal, whiney, faux Goth wannabe Kenzi adds nothing to the show beyond cheap, throwaway one-liners. Deep and cerebral this show is not.

On the plus side, however, the show demonstrates potential in the development of the Fae mythology and the back-stories of the main characters and the whole idea of a Fae underworld integrated into the human population was, at first airing in 2010, an original idea. However, although Bo is a succubus and, inevitably, there is a bound to be a bit of sexual content, it is overstated, American’ly bland and serves no purpose but to give the show a frisson of risqué while stopping any narrative flow dead in its tracks. In this first season, the stories are episodic, formulaic and obvious with little character development.

There are many parallels with the far superior Grimm and this is a rare case of the successor being a massive improvement on the progenitor. While Grimm is mature, cleverly plotted with a deep vein of underlying witty self-deprecation, Lost Girl is somewhat juvenile, shallow and unsatisfying. It’s a shame really, it could have been quite good and I’m sure the teen/20 something target audience will vehemently disagree, but there are far too many “good grief not again” and “surely you can’t be that dim” moments. Being in its fourth season, it is plainly very popular but, needless to say, we shan’t be delving further into the Lost Girl universe. Roll on Season 3 of Grimm!!

I missed the beginning of this series on Syfy, yet when it arrived on my scope, I had to wait for the DVD to arrive as I didn't want to start it worrying that I'd missed some essential storyline from previous episodes or even in series jokes.

What this show produced was something, that while sounding simplistic, was something that worked on so many levels, you had a kickass lead heroine discovering about her heritage, you had a love angle and of course you had a pretty solid supporting cast that brought the whole thing to life. Add to this cracking writing, some wonderful dialogue and of course great value for money. Wonderful all round and something that has me all set for Series 2.

I started watching this show a week ago and I'm already in love with it. Yes, the first episode is not very good, but you keep going and it starts getting interesting and then funny and fun! I love that it doesn't take itself too seriously. I love that the characters have development. I love that the actors really work hard to bring their characters to life.

Lost Girl is a full fantasy show and a good one at that. It's a shame it only available on DVD in Australia (why is that?) I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. Please.
