"You can freaking control people by touch! And not in a creepy handjob way."  
I have a brand new fandom obsession.

Lost Girl

For the longest time I've been wanting to watch this show, so over the last several days I have download and watched the entire first season and believe when I say that I am absolutely completely in love with this show. There are many things I find enjoyable about it. The mythology, the characters, the fact that we have a bisexual leading character that is a woman who is very comfortable with her sexuality, the way the show deals with sexuality as being entirely fluid and accepted without scrutiny, the adorable friendship between Bo and Kenzi, Kenzi in general (♥!), the music (♥), and just yeah. There is nothing I dislike about this show. So far, it's just absolutely wonderful. What's more amazing is how I have season two to watch, and they are currently filming the third season so I'll be all caught up to fangirl with the rest of fandom!

My favorite character though has got to be Kenzi. I love her. I want to be friends, and partners in crime, with her. Also ask her on fashion advice because her style is phenomenal. :)

Anyone else on my flist watch this show? I needs more people to flail with over it!

I LOOVVEEEE LOST GIRL. I've been a huge fan since it originally started airing in Canada a few years ago.

Love kenz, but dyson is my favourite!! I KNOW. PREDICTABLE. And also Trick. And also everyone. I just love everyone, I can't even.

This show is flawless and NEVER fails. There's no ups and downs, no bad episodes, nothing like that. Ever.

Seriously, I just love all the characters, they are all interesting and fleshed out and amazing and have amazing chemistry relationships with every other characters on the show. I fell in love with Kenzi first because, well, she's what introduced me to the show initially (due to many people loving her and I found her adorable and got interested) but the show itself has so many fascinating characters in a very elaborate and interesting world and the mythology is fantastic, and just yeah. I am head-over-heels over this show right now.

(It's funny though, I just had a debate on Tumblr over someone who liked the concept of the show, but thought it was horribly misogynistic, which puzzles me since I found the show to be the exact opposite of that....)

I can't think of a single show on tv right now that is more feminist than Lost Girl. WHAT.

In fact, it goes so far to utterly deny gender roles in my opinion.

So that means that I will enjoy season two yes??
I have only seen 6 eps, it seems slower than season 1 but I knew that would happen because this season has 22 eps.
Clarryhoo: lost girl bodyson spacebetweenusgrowsnomorefrostbite on April 18th, 2012 07:18 pm (UTC)
Yesss OF COURSE YOU'LL ENJOY IT. Flawless show is flawless.
Shonaillekalikahuntress on April 18th, 2012 08:28 pm (UTC)
Yay, you think after being in fandom for years I would know to ignore how the hate/wank always starts up in season two.
Renée: Nikita. Femme Fatale.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2012 07:23 pm (UTC)
That's what I was trying to explain to them, in the most calm and rational way possible.

But according to them, apparently Bo being a sexually confident woman who happens to be a succubus is nothing more than the show exploiting her as a "sex doll" and used primarily for the "male gaze" because of her succubus nature. Which makes no sense, imo, particularly when you watch the show it's way more complicated than that and it kind of insults Bo's character since she is independent, strong and capable of many things aside from her succubus nature. I don't know, I tried arguing (in a calm manner) with this person but they seemed to be the kind that their opinion wouldn't budge no matter how much you debate. I'll just let them think however they want to, but tbh it's all ridiculous imo.
Clarryhoo: dh bennett ughughugh - letsey_xnomorefrostbite on April 18th, 2012 07:41 pm (UTC)
A male gaze sex doll who is pretty much the heroine of the entire show AND THE ENTIRE FAE COMMUNITY, LET'S BE HONEST, and who routinely saves the day with her female best friend forever through intelligence, fairness, and kick-assery.

Yes, I can see why they'd think that.................................
Renée: LotS. Kahlan/Cara.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2012 07:48 pm (UTC)
That was my reaction too. It just baffles me they came to that conclusion at all.

I mean, from the outside I can see how one would think that without having any knowledge of the show whatsoever, but once you watch it, well, it should be very obvious that it's not that at all. Right? Of course some people take their SJW stuff far too seriously and create arguments and drama when there really isn't any need for it.
Shonaillekalikahuntress on April 18th, 2012 08:27 pm (UTC)
I saw that on tumblr, I was pretty pissed and re-blogged something not so nice.
Seriously I didn't even know where to begin. That particular individual apparently strongly believes that women can't be sexual for their own means and pleasure and that chastity = self-respect.
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 08:57 am (UTC)
Seriously, I really didn't understand what their argument was. I tried to, but it doesn't make sense because all I've seen with the show is pro-woman sex-positivity, and three-dimensional characters. This person seemed to say that, because the main character is a succubus, means that she is being exploited, and all other kinds of ridiculous claims. I mean, I'm all for pointing out problematic aspects in media, but Lost Girl is not one of those.

I found it rather odd. It's almost like someone calling Buffy not a strong woman character, but just another dumb blonde bimbo and anti-feminist. It just doesn't compute, and makes me scratch my head as to what these people are reading into.

(Oh, and what's your Tumblr? Sorry, I keep forgetting who is who from here over there -- esp with people keep changing names on me -- and I don't know if I am following you or not....)

I'm daensonnet on tumblr.:)
Yeah, that certain person was just so full of it.
Megan: LG - lust at first touchmfirefly10 on April 18th, 2012 07:00 pm (UTC)
I really like this show. It's made some storyline/relationship choices I could've lived without but overall, I still think it's really fun and I love ALL THE WOMENZ. But yeah...Dyson and Trick, I could live without. Especially Dyson, who reached new levels of douchery in season 2. But on the flip-side, Kenzi and Lauren got more awesome so...
Renée: LOTS. Denna.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC)
I heard about Dyson in S2, which is a shame since I really loved him in S1 (esp during a few scenes he had with Kenzi that were particularly very sweet, almost in a big brothery kind of way)

But overall yes, I love the show primarily for the women and their relationships with each other. I love how the show really shows that a woman can enjoy sex and be comfortable with her sexuality, which is sadly a rarity to see on television nowadays. Plus, of course I simply adore Kenzi and Bo's sisterly friendship, they are both too precious. ♥
Shonaillekalikahuntress on April 18th, 2012 07:12 pm (UTC)
One of my top shows, I need to finish season two which isn't as tight as season 1 IMO because of the changed 22 ep format.
I'm hoping season three is 13 or 16 eps instead.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2012 07:28 pm (UTC)
I think that's why I flew by with S1 because it was 13 episodes. Which, in my opinion, is a reasonable size that every show should follow. It would mean less fillers and make everything flow more smoothly.

But yes, I am just in love with this show. So much in love. ♥

Sighhh, I started but I never got time to watch more after episode 2. Now you're making me want to find time for it! lol.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 11:34 am (UTC)
You definitely should!

I mean yeah I'm kind of on a high from this show since I've been marathoning it and it's my newest shiny fandom right now, but when you do have the time you should certainly sit down and watch the rest of it. All episodes of season one back to back to back. That's what I did and believe me, addictive as hell. And so much fun, and awesome, and strong women friendships and relationships and characters. :D :D :D :D
Tangles: Lost Girlentangled_now on April 18th, 2012 08:34 pm (UTC)
I love Lost Girl. So much fun, all the episodes! And everything about Kenzi is fabulous, Bo and Kenzi may be my favourite friends ever - though everyone else is amazing too.
Renée: Inara/Kaylee. <3rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 11:30 am (UTC)
To me, Bo and Kenzi's friendship is the heart and core of the entire show. ♥
Robyncakes: lg/ Kenzi and Bobitterbird on April 18th, 2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
lost girl is awesome, especially Kenzi, LOVEEE her so much
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 11:28 am (UTC)
She's by far one of my favorite characters. I love all the characters on the show, so well-rounded and fleshed out, but Kenzi. She's my girl. ♥
chosenfire28: Lost Girl - Dyson greenchosenfire28 on April 19th, 2012 12:27 am (UTC)
I adore this show! I've only seen season 1 so far but I enjoyed it so much, and enjoyed it even more when a marathon came on my tv and I could not turn the channel.

I really do love all the characters, I love the world! The only person I've been iffy on is Lauren (but that was because of season 1 stuff and I hope she gets better in season 2).

I mostly adore the relationship between Bo and Kenzi, it's pretty much on of the most amazing friendships/duos I have ever seen and they make me smile and laugh and FEEL!

I need to find time to watch season 2 :D
Renée: Inara/Kaylee. <3rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 11:24 am (UTC)
I know! I downloaded the first few episodes to see whether I would like it, and instantly I was hooked and had to download the rest of the season so I could marathon it properly. It's so addictive, and all the characters are awesome and the plot is amazing, and just everything.

I hear that Lauren gets more development in S2, so I'm looking forward to that.

Bo and Kenzi, their friendship is seriously the best. They are super adorable, and definitely one of the best I've seen in a long time, and that's saying something. ♥ Also, Kenzi, I just love her so much and how hilarious she is. My personal favorite scene is when Bo is accompanying her when she is playing the role of the Shaman, and she's just going all out with the role. God, I never laughed so hard in my life, lol! XD

I love this show! I'm a couple episodes behind(I've been watching it on SyFy), though lol.
Renée: Claire. No ordinary girl.rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 09:20 am (UTC)
I have a feeling Syfy censors or cuts some of the sexytimes and language, lol.

But yes, this show is amazingly addictive and just so good. I'm surprised I didn't get into it sooner, but I'm catching up and just marathoning the episodes one after the other is just phenomenal. :D
icecoldrain: Harry Potter - Gryffindoricecoldrain on April 19th, 2012 03:56 pm (UTC)
lol I know! It's the same with BBC America, although idk why it gets censored when it's not a basic cable channel XD

It is! I kept hearing about it and I was like I THINK I MISSED IT but it wasn't even airing out here so now I'm like OMG EVERYONE WAS RIGHT, THIS IS AMAZING.

I've been thinking of watching Lost Girl...
Renée: Firefly. Inara Serra.rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 09:07 am (UTC)
Do it! Seriously, it's amazing. :D
jakwezstjakwezst on April 19th, 2012 12:15 pm (UTC)
I love this show, too. I thought you were watching it, so was a little surprised that you were saying absolutely NOTHING about it. All is now explained. :D

Season 2 is a very different animal imo. I kept watching (and I'm glad I did) but it wasn't as effervescently fun as the first season. I think you too will have much to ponder on once you watch.

Looking forward to where they go in season 3.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2012 12:57 pm (UTC)
It was on my queue of things to watch, which I have quite a lot of. I just finally got around to downloading and watching the entire first season.

Season 2 is a very different animal imo. I kept watching (and I'm glad I did) but it wasn't as effervescently fun as the first season. I think you too will have much to ponder on once you watch.

Someone was liveblogging the second season and mentioned that it was getting quite depressing, especially towards the end of the season. As long as it doesn't stray from the growth of the characters and progression of the story, I'm good.

Yes, there's a second season with 22 episodes. It was also picked up for a third season, which will be premiering in the 6th of this month! Three more days, yay!
