We are living in a new golden age of television. This is the age of the one hour drama. Sure, we've had them for decades now, but never have we had so many good ones available at one time. Chuck, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, 24, House, Supernatural, No Ordinary Family, etc, etc, etc.
Now we have Lost Girl.
I won't say this show will be enjoyed by everyone, but any sane person will at least acknowledge it is worthwhile.
Decent acting shows through a veil of light camp as characters develop personally and with each other. This development is rushed at times, but the point seems to be allow for the audience to quickly absorb as much info as they can on a world with a decidedly massive mythos. Understandably, some may find this up-tempo plotting to be counter- immersive, but there is no accounting for personal preference.
Some may be turned away by the sexual energy which charges this show. That being said, the sexuality inherent in the atmosphere is never gratuitous and always essential to the product as a whole.
Finally, it must be said that the possibilities for future plot lines are nearly endless, considering the vast amount of folklore this show can draw inspiration from. Not to mention the possibilities of political intrigue between the two major factions in the show.
I've tried to be as vague as possible in describing the show, as that is what the summary is for. All I seek to do is shine a little light on a prime product that, with all the other great shows on TV, some folks might miss or simply pass up. Trust me, you owe it to yourself to give this a try, even if it's just to see if you like it.
