We’re six episodes into Lost Girl on Sci-Fi. I’m enjoying it. Sort of campy, not serious, little bit of sex. It’s fun.
Tonight’s episode has cannibalism and hemorrhagic fever. You know it’s going to be a fun time when there’s foot soup and bleeding eyeballs. And a basilisk. And bonus references to Narnia.
Previous episodes had Luck Eaters, a college sorority (the horror!), a love triangle, a Will ‘o the Wisp and an Oracle. Kenzi, the human sidekick, is a walking animé character with a wry sense of humor.
The writing could be a bit tighter, and maybe a bit less cliché, but it’s better than a lot of shows on broadcast TV. Grimm, for example, is a show I’m still watching, but I’m not quite sure why. Maybe I’m too lazy to delete the program from the DVR… Maybe I do enjoy the werewolf character – Monroe – just a little bit. Maybe I’m hoping it gets better.
Anyway, I’m glad I found Lost Girl, and found room on the DVR for it. I hope to enjoy the rest of the season as much as I have the first half.
Now for Stu and I to get caught up on The Walking Dead…
