What if instead of the Winchester brothers on “Supernatural”, the hero (or in this case, the heroine) was a lesbian succubus? Well it’s not quite that simple, but that’s not a bad way to describe the Canadian supernatural show “Lost Girl”, which the SyFy Channel has just acquired. The lead is played by Anna Silk, and while it looks and sounds like every other supernatural show out there, the show’s big contribution is that its lead character, Silk’s Bo, doesn’t always go for the hunky hunks, and from what I’ve seen of the show on the Interwebs, things can get pretty steamy between Bo and her ladies.
Anna Silk (The Ghost Whisperer) is Bo, a demon seductress who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no idea she was any different until she accidentally “drained” her first boyfriend to death.
She hits the road and discovers she’s a member of a group that feeds off human energy, and she must choose between joining the light and dark clans. Other characters include a homicide detective/Bo’s love interest, a human confidante and street-smart survivor, a doctor who competes for Bo’s heart, and a handsome male “Siren” who is the eternal bachelor (and ultimate wingman).
There are two seasons of the show so far, and it looks like the SyFy Channel will re-air those and wait to catch up on the Canadian originals aka what they did with the BBC’s “Merlin” and “Doctor Who”.
