Lost Girl Season 3 DVD Review

Lost Girl Season 3 DVD

The third season of “Lost Girl” is an improvement over season 2.

In the eventful, uncut 13 episode season 3, fans can expect to see stories about: A Fae prison, Hale becoming the new Ash, Lauren and Bo’s relationship, the Pied Piper, detectives Dyson and Tamsin, the mischievous Morrigan, Bo needing Chi, Kenzi being possessed (so to speak), UnderFae, Bo undergoing The Dawning (a Fae rite of passage), Bo’s parents,  Bo being accused of mass murder, and Faes (Alligator, Rakshasa, the Manta, Tikbalang, and Duppy to name a few).

After a forgettable season 2, the third season of the increasingly popular cult television series “Lost Girl” shows some minor improvements. While the Fae of the week stories, the suspect acting (especially by star Anna Silk), low budget 90’s syndicated TV esque F/X, and groan worthy one-liners are still present, the third season offers up more characterization, a darker tone, multiple story arcs, and a much needed exploration of the Fae mythology. Oh, and there’s the usual dose of steamy sexuality that fans can’t seem to get enough.

Perhaps the most impressive part of season 3 is the action-packed final 2 episodes. I don’t want to reveal too many details, but let’s just say these episodes see a Fae killer being revealed, Kenzi going on a potentially major life altering quest, a mysterious figure appearing, and characters being kidnapped. And that’s just scratching the surface.

Character wise, Kenzi (played by the always charming Ksenia Solo) continues to be the highlight of the show. If she were the star of the series, I think it would be a much better show overall. She’s so much more engaging than actress Anna Silk (Bo) ever is.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: Widescreen. How does it look? As good as it’s going to look on DVD. It should be noted that this title is also available on Blu-ray.

Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1. How does it sound? Between the sound f/x, music, and dialogue, this track delivers.

Extras:
* Trailers for “Athena: Goddess of War,” “Mulan: Rise of a Warrior,” “Zebraman 2,” “Escape From Vampire Island,” “The Legend Is Born: IP Man,”
* Behind The Scenes Image Gallery.
* Interviews with Prodigy Pictures owner/producer Jay Firestone, writer/producer Emily Andras and actor Kris Holden-Ried.
* “San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Panel”- Justin Hojas hosts this Q&A panel with Kris Holden-Ried, Anna Silk, Ksenia Solo, Jay Firestone, and Emily Andras. Discussions include James Bond, characters, the cast, Vex, acting, etc. Definitely the best extra on this set for fans.

Overall Thoughts: While not something I would watch on a regular basis, “Lost Girl” has certainly developed a rabid fanbase. If you like “Grimm,” chances are that you will dig “Lost Girl.”
