We’re so glad that Lost Girl is back on our screens, and based on what we’ve seen of Season 3 so far, the wait has certainly been worth it. One of the coolest things about the show is that it appeals to a wide demographic; different people enjoy the show for different reasons. Here are our Top 5 reasons why we’re happy about Lost Girl’s return. Be sure to click on “read more” for the entire list.
1. F/F relationship on our TV
It’s been said before but a point worth repeating. We very rarely see a portrayal of a F/F relationship on our TV screens. When we do, it’s often a ratings stunt, hard to tell if they are “girlfriends” or they will end up replaying the dead/evil lesbian trope.
Lost Girl has been a refreshing change from that; we haven’t sat through “just-for-ratings” kisses, or the “experimenting with a guest star” before going back to hetero-ville. Lauren is a functioning, adult lesbian which in itself is rare. It’s nice to see Bo and Lauren’s relationship treated as normal (as normal as it can be within the confines of the Fae world). Perhaps the best part is that the Lost Girl cast and crew understand the importance of the Doccubus relationship to the community and make a conscious effort to treat it in a respectful manner.
