Lost Girl - Season 1
In Canada, Rob Salem of the Toronto Star described the show as one that "definitely bears watching".Vladislav Tinchev, writer for the German site Serienjunkies wrote that the series would benefit from "revealing more background information about the represented world," rather than spend time on "clumsy action scenes". But Tinchev pointed out that "Lost Girl is not lost at all, and has immediately won the audience and entertains them well. And there is nothing wrong with that, because TV series need not be world-shaking events."
Bo Dennis: [Opening Narration] Life is hard when you don't know who you are. It's harder when you don't know *what* you are. My love carries a death sentence. I was lost for years, searching while hiding, only to find that I belong to a world hidden from humans. I won't hide anymore. I will live the life I choose.
Season 1 premiered in Australia on Sci Fi Australia (renamed SF Channel) on July 14, 2011. After SF ceased broadcasting on December 31, 2013, SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) acquired the rights to the first three seasons of Lost Girl. The first season (repeat) premiered on free-to-air channel SBS 2 on October 1, 2013.
In the United States, it premiered on Syfy (U.S.) on January 16, 2012. The series debut delivered 1.474 million viewers (0.5 rating). The last episode of the season on April 9 was followed by Season 2 on April 16, 2012.
Throughout the season, Bo learns more about the Fae world and herself while she searches for information about her origins. Along the way, Bo develops romantic relationships with both Dyson, a Light Fae wolf shapeshifter and police detective; and Lauren, a human doctor and scientist, and pledged servant of The Ash, leader of the Light Fae.
Thankfully Bo was able to snap the violent Valkyrie out of her rage. Tamsin has become someone we love, if not entirely trust, and to see that little girl lost tearfully confess that her family wasn't in Valhalla but with Team Bo made it easy enough to forgive her her ax-wielding, hilarious Shining impression of Jack Nicholson.
Seeing Kenzi enjoying hotel hell was a nice twist. Instead of torture, she had every creature comfort at her fingertips, along with couture, chocolate and a Goonies prequel! What more could a girl want? Oh yeah, her dead boyfriend.
After seeing Bo and Kenzi at odds last season it satisfied my soul to see their verbal parrying, shared sisterhood and deep affection again. And when it seemed that Bo might leave her there for Hale, I almost panicked. Of course she would want Kenzi to be happy, but Kenzi and Bo are are two halves of a whole and I didn't want to see them parted again.
Bo, on the other hand, is getting ready to meet big bad daddy, whoever that may be. He wants her to raise an army to take out the world. That's hardly a father figure for a girl to look up to. She may be in over her head, but I pray this storyline doesn't keep her from her peeps like last season, because the show is always at its best with the collective core group.
Hopefully they'll dispatch this baddie as a unit and then get back to the basics that made Lost Girl such a sexy, fun, fresh show. Seeing as this is the last season, I'd like to see it go out the same high caliber way it came in.
Flashbacks were one thing that Lost Girl never had that much of. Even though not every show needs flashback, they were a welcome addition for this season. With lost memories and demons from the past resurfacing, flashbacks were very necessary; however, problems arose when some of these flashbacks blatantly contradicted each other.
If I talked about everything wrong with this season, I could be here for hours. Those were the biggest good and bad moments of this season. For a more complete feel ,check out my episode recaps, but to sum up, here are some final bullets of what this season did well, and what was just . . . you know.
perfect! exaclly what i thought of this season, only 2 things first the kenzi dyson kiss which never should have happened(incest between main characters is weird did we 4get dexter) probably was a warning that this season is being written by writers who dont know the characters and have never seen the show and second HIMYM finale was awesome
All five seasons that spans 77 episodes in total are due to leave Netflix officially on April 17th, 2020. Only Netflix in the United States carries the show so this all but rules out the possibility of it being added to other Netflix regions such as Netflix Canada, Netflix UK and more.
Looks like to me that Lauren, Dyson, and Kenzi (maybe Trick to) are going to be targets for the gods of the underworld this year. My guess all season long we will see them in very scary and potentially deadly situations.
Regina offers Snow White a deal; if the Princess declares Regina the rightful ruler of the kingdom, the Queen will allow her, Charming, and the dwarves to live peacefully on Charming's former farm. Snow White equates the "deal" to exile. Regina responds by reasoning that, instead of trying to kill Snow White, her focus should be taking everything that was once supposed to be Snow White's. Charming reacts to this statement, fighting against his bonds. Regina tells Snow White to get down on her knees and swear on her father's grave that the kingdom belongs to Regina. When Snow White asks what will happen if she doesn't, the Queen responds, "then someone will pay the price." She uses her magic to lift up one of the female villagers, choking her. Snow White, sword in hand, charges at the Queen, who disappears in a cloud of smoke at the last moment, dropping the village girl. Charming breaks out of his binds, aiding the villager. Regina reappears, telling Snow White that she has until sundown the next day to give up her claim to the throne. For every day that Snow White defies her, she will kill one of Snow White's subjects. Regina further taunts the Princess by claiming that she'll never be a Queen.
In the former Enchanted Forest, Snow White, Prince Charming and the dwarves discuss their options. Snow White advocates for taking the Evil Queen's deal, and Charming argues for standing their ground; he rationalizes that Snow White needs to protect her people from the Queen. Snow White counters that she was unable to even protect the peasant girl, and that Regina would eventually go after the people closest to her. The dwarves swear to stand by Snow White, no matter what. Charming continues to try to convince Snow, but she simply responds that she is no Queen, she doesn't even know who "Snow White" truly is, and she does not want to be alone. When Charming assures her that that will never happen, Snow White announces her intent to take the Queen's offer, saying they should leave the next day. She then leaves the group. Charming calls after her, but Grumpy objects, questioning Charming's motives in attempting to change Snow White's mind. He asks Charming why the kingdom matters so much to him, when he has true love. Realizing the implications, Charming insists that he has Snow White's best interests at heart. He asks if the dwarves are with him, or against him. Grumpy responds by telling him that if he wants to change Snow White's mind, Charming will have to do so without their help. The dwarves leave him, and Charming resolves to find another way. 041b061a72
