Lost Girl 1x01

Wiscon rules!  Thanks to it I got to go to the vid party, and thanks to the vid party I saw imaginarycircus's Meow Meow, and thanks to Meow Meow I was reminded that I'd always meant to check out Lost Girl.  I watched the first episode here.  (The audio is a little muffled and the video a little fuzzy--does anyone have ideas where to find a better version of the show?)

Thus far, it seems to be about a (bisexual, tough, female who wears sensible shoes and uses sexy clothes like a mask instead of her default clothing choice) fae, her decision not to ally herself with the "two party system" currently controlling the fae, and her friendship with Kenzi, an adorable goth thief.  Years of Supernatural had me sure one of the numerous men of color was sure to end up dead, evil or both, but thus far--nope!  Years of US tv in general has me tensing up, waiting for a female character to be present just so she can be victimized and provide ~suffering~ for men but thus far--nope!  No one is stupid so a plot could work, and I didn't even notice any plot holes.  And I love that Kenzi says precisely what I've always wanted someone to say to a superpowered individual--enjoy it!  Get what you can out of it!  Having magic isn't all moping and rainy days, after all.

I can't wait to watch the next episode!

Yay, Lost Girl! The show is not without its share of problems, but it does a good job overall.

Do you use Bit Torrent? That's how I watched it.
