Recently I discovered the most excellent television viewing, a show called Lost Girl.
Lost Girl focuses on the gorgeous and charismatic Bo, a supernatural being called a succubus who feeds on the energy of humans, sometimes with fatal results. Refusing to embrace her supernatural clan system and its rigid hierarchy, Bo is a renegade who takes up the fight for the underdog while searching for the truth about her own mysterious origins.

What I like about this show, apart from the sizzling sexy women, is that it stretches the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Have you never stopped to ask yourself the question, “If vampires are real, what else is out there?”
The other thing I love about this show is the way in which it deals with sexuality. As a succubus Bo is basically bisexual, feeding off sexual ‘chi’. There is bisexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism, even a couple of threesomes. Far from being soft porn, sexuality is portrayed without childish sniggering or narrow-minded prejudice.
The concept of good versus evil is explored with the Fae being divided between ‘Light” and ‘Dark’.
Overall a quality show and well worth a look.
Almost every episode introduces you to a new mythical being. According to creator M.A. Lovretta, all supernatural creatures belong to a race known as the Fae (or Fairy). And we’re not talking soft and cuddly like a fairy Godmother.
