I love this series! Filmed in Toronto, Ont, it's sexy, whimsical, funny, and smart. If you enjoy tv shows like True Blood, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, and Buffy, you will love this beautiful world of light and dark fae, werewolves, and other fantastic creatures. Incredible costumes done by the team behind the cult sci-fi series Dark Matter. Highly recommended !
I have watched the whole set twice now and plan to watch it again. The series is for the most part well written and very funny. You notice things you missed the first viewing because the writers are so good at having many things going on in one scene. The magic between the cast is amazing. they mesh well with each other and there seems to be a chemistry between them that allows them to make you feel you are right there watching friends interact with each other. I am hoping and praying they will come out with season 2 SOON. I want to buy it legally not from Asia, I want to support the show so I have many more years of DVDs to watch ;) So producers lets speed up getting it to market!
I love this show and even though I live in the US I was very happy to get the first season on DVD. I hope the second season comes on DVD soon. I also hope that Amazon Canada does better packaging when shipping. This DVD set was sent in a flimsy envelope instead of an Amazon box. The plastic was torn off the DVD set, and the DVDs were ajar in the case. The Amazon shipping force can do a better job considering the postage we pay to get it shipped to the US.
An amazing show, considering that it's a Canadian production. I'm not biased, really. I'm just so pleased that it's so darned original and well acted. The cast is very accomplished and I really can't wait to get the next three seasons to watch. Waiting with breathless anticipation.
Gotta love Canada Amazon... This particular show is not available on DVD in th US yet due to the fact season one only recently starting showing on the SyFy network. I was happy to see that I was able to get the DVD set from Amazon Canada. I am a big fan of Amazon and now have found an alternate site for things not available in the US.
As far as the show... I got hooked on the premise when I accidentally found it on SYFY a couple of months ago. I love all the mythical creatures that have shown up. Not usually a big fan of science fiction, I am enjoying the variety and creativity of the writers as they integrate each new creature into the story line. I am not necessarily pro-dyson or pro-lauren, but look forward to the wonderful lines delivered by Kenzie. Her character has a quick wit and is usually a great source of fun, laughter, and guaranteed trouble. Look forward to season 2 and now season 3 which is in production.
If you like the supernatural world you will enjoy this series! It deals a lot with the faerie world, but has a different take on it than many other shows that is very interesting. It always has various other supernatural creatures that also have very interesting takes on them. Very good show!
I didn't know what the series was at first, i hadn't seen it on television because it was always on at a time when I was working. It was recommended by a friend. I bought it because of the low price to give it a chance. I'm hooked and can't wait to get the rest of the series!
I bought this set on the strength of reviews in the sci-fi magazine SFX - and wasn't disappointed. Whilst the basic premise, ordinary women discovers she's superpowered, has been done before many times (Buffy, X-men etc.), Lost Girl has sufficient differences to keep it interesting.
Production values are high and the scripts maintain a balance between drama and humour.
The only dissappointment was the total lack of extras on the disks (this is the second Canadian series boxset I've bought, the other also had no extra's - I'm sensing a pattern here)
Also, well done to Amazon for getting the disks to the UK in 5-days, with standard delivery.
