Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.

My stepdaughter and I are both interested in the "mystical/supernatural" genre. I am a total spectator but my stepdaughter is an animator and looks at productions through different eyes through her university studies.
We had both heard of the series: Lost Girl, but what I find "kills" a lot of series even those returning is to actually find it when you are looking for something to watch. I go to TV guide and print out the September schedule but it only contains the mainstream affiliates.
Last Sunday, while scrolling through the channels after watching "The Glades", I found Lost Girl and we watched the fourth episode and when the 10.10.10 marathon was mentioned, we both agreed we would watch it.
The fourth episode hooked us in and we watched it again after watching the first three episodes to answer the questions one has in mid-stream.
My understanding is that there are 13 episodes completed, I would love to see enough support to have another season begin production with more episodes.
Lost Girl has a lot of drawbacks to it's success in addition to people having access to Showcase and being willing to stay up and watch it: there is a female lead and female side-kick, it is a Canadian production which has minimalist roots from the BBC and the general trap that "mystic lore" runs into with keeping the storyline from contradicting itself.
If one wants to understand Canadian production, you need to compare the Nikita TV Series (1997-2001) starring Peta Wilson and Roy Dupuis to the American 2010 production. Lost Girl uses some of the same ambiguity in the surroundings.
Flashpoint is an example of a Canadian series that by CBS buying the rights to air the show in January 2008 required the losing of any mention and Landmarks of Toronto or Canada.
My hope is that the series can succeeds without losing any of what has been established to date. I hope that the mystery of Bo's parents does not break the trust she has with Dyson but I can see that as a set-up in the previous episodes as Bo does not trust the Fae and would rather live in the Human world that she grew up in.
