^What's Checkmate in this context? The only TV series of that title I can find reference to are an American series from 1960 and a current Indian series.

Perhaps you are looking in the wrong branch of entertainment.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Checkmate_members

Then again, knowing "Guy", he could be referencing 1960's TV shows...



(Wiki is NOT cooperating with those links today)


And if we are referencing old TV shows, I'd prefer Lost Girl doing a Honey West crossover.

It's for 13 episodes. I wonder if it's a "wrap up" season.
The first and third seasons were also 13 episodes. The second started with 13 and then got a back-9 pickup.
Good point. That makes me feel better.

I found out that today Drop Dead Diva has crawled it's way out of Cancellation, so I've capped my wishing for Divas quota for this month.

Re: Lost Girl Season 3

There's Bo place like home.

I thought after the last ep, that Bo was mad at Lauren for not helping her save Kenzi. Was I wrong?

Do we know why Bo's adoptive mom was crazy mean... was it the underfae? Or has she become intermittently nice in her dementia... "forgetting" to be mean, as it were?

I like Kenzi more and more each time I see her. Loved it when she gaped at Dougie describing himself as Goth.

Hey, stupid question from someone who only watches it for the lipstick lesbianism:

Okay, the only way humans are allowed to operate in the Fae world is if they're "claimed" by Fae, right? Well, Lauren was last claimed by the previous Ashe. Now that he's dead, does that mean she's operating in the Fae world illegally, or has she been officially claimed by Bo, or does just being Bo's girlfriend mean everyone just considers her claimed?

Given that the new Ash is Hale, who is a friend of theirs and probably has a lot more important issues on his plate, I imagine he's not being a stickler about this and is cutting Bo some slack where Lauren is concerned. If and when "Docubbus" starts to interfere with Fae business, they may have to deal with this.

I didn't get the impression that Bo's adoptive mom was crazy mean the whole time she was growing up. It sounds like she had a fairly normal childhold--up to the point where her succubus nature surfaced and her freaked-out mom didn't handle it very well. (To put it mildly.)

That was the impression I got as well.
I really enjoyed this episode. It was fun getting to go back and see where Bo grew up.

I guess the writers hated all that idiocy as much as the audience.

Re: Lost Girl Season 3

This was a really good episode. The actress who played Bo's Mom was fantastic. The scene at the end, where she is communicating all these flashes of conflicting emotions through the dementia, all without a word, was outstanding.

And Kenzie was in fine form, too. I loved her reaction to "sensible shoes." And she looked cute in the country dress.

And looks like Trick has a potential love interest. Or at least nookie interest.

Since this is a show produced by Showcase for Canada... does that mean its less likely to suffer the Eureka / Warehouse 13 (?) fate of being dropped after a few artificialy stretched out seasons?

Adding to a growing list of things I didn't know about this series... is the fact that Anna Silk is pregnant.

Congrats to Anna and her Hubby!
