Lost Girl is a daring new series about mysterious young Bo (Anna Silk), a succubus who drains the sexual energy of humans to feed, heal... and kill. Having survived for years alone, she now discovers she is one of the fae, creatures of legend and folklore who secretly feed off humans in myriad ways. Relieved to find out that she is not alone, but horrified by what it means, Bo chooses a dangerous middle path between the humans and the fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Ok, hyperbolic copywriter; I enjoyed the pilot, though I wouldn't call it a DARING NEW SERIES, just because the main character is allowed to say "asshole"!
So, this is on Showcase, and even though they're all DARING and shit, they still cleaned up the succubus myth a tad: as far as I know, succubae kill people through having sex, not just kissing.
Still, I enjoyed the different clans of Fae, and there was Emmanuelle Vaugier as the Morrigan, which was kinda awesome.
Predictably the spunky girl (Ksenia Solo), friend of the succubus, who is the entry character for the audience, was as annoying as hell.
But I'm more on board for Dyson, played by Kris Holden-Reid: I'm not sure what kind of Fae he's supposed to be (the one time he, um, acted out, looked more like an out of control vampire or a human-looking werewolf to me), but he is hot hot hot. And in the official site there's a pic of him shirtless with his wrists chained above his head, from some future episode, so I'm sticking with the series!
Here's the official site: Lost Girl. There's some interactive comic on it, too.
ETA I just checked on Kris Holden-Reid's imdb page, and he's only listed for one episode, but on the official site he's one of the three main characters. All I say is, he'd better be on it next week, or I am outta here!
