My Weekend Crush

Anna Silk is many things. Beautiful. Badass. Bold. Have I mentioned badass already? It’s like Mary Louise Parker had a younger sister who was raised by the world’s most polite Canadian biker gang. The star of the supernatural series “Lost Girl” is also unwaveringly wonderful to her fans, particularly all us crazy gay ladies who keep demanding more hot Doccubus action. Some of those fans fondly remember her from her same-sex smoochery on the Canadian comedy “Being Erica.” On “Lost Girl,” her bisexual succubus heroine Bo follows in the grand tradition of Buffy. A young woman bestowed with supernatural powers who takes up her mantel somewhat reluctantly. But then, once she embraces her strength, look out bad guys – there’s a new sheriff in town and she wears a lot of leather.

Those unfamiliar with the Canadian series will get a chance to see it from the beginning when SyFy starts airing it early next year. But those of us who are already hooked (and those of us outside of Canada who are watching along through methods we will not mention) know it’s one of TV’s most delightful new addictions. Supernatural craziness, mythological baddies and one very appealing Dr. Hotpants. What more could a gal want? In fact, I love this show so much I’m going to start writing SnapCaps (short, snappy recaps with an accompanying SnapGraph) each week for the rest of the season. You can catch up today on AfterEllen (should post in a bit) with a “Story So Far” SnapCap. And then starting next week expect fresh, feisty “Lost Girl” SnapCaps every Tuesday. I cannot wait. Bring it, Anna. Happy weekend, all.

I love this show. Bo is a sex positive Post-Buffy badass icon.It will be interesting to see what the writers do with the relationship between Bo and Lauren.Bo has chosen Dyson, so I hope Lauren wont be pining away this season.I'd like to see her get her own lovethang-- the way Xander did in Buffy.

As I'm writing this, I'm watching the current episodes of Lost Girl.

Cheers everyone, have a great weekend!!

ps.DS great recaps for R&I.

Oopslie. It's "project free tv". Just wanted to make sure you could find it. Some of us Canadians know about it too.

It is currently airing in the UK on Syfy and I planned on watching it but the promos put me off just by being so focused on sex and not plot so I didn't bother. I know she's a Succubus and all but still...

The too much sex thing is also what put me off watching True Blood after the first episode (that and the accents... Seriously bad).

Call me a prude if you want but I just don't think TV shows need to be so full of sex.
