Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

Lost Girl Season 5 starts tonight on Syfy.
Trailer
Season 4 photo recap.

Like Hell, Part 110:00 PM (Mountain/Pacific Time) on Syfy 50, 1 hr 2014 TV-14

In Part 1 of the two-part Season 5 premiere, Bo goes to hell and back to rescue a friend, while Tamsin faces a foe from her past.
I know Season 4 was kind of a mess, but I still love this show and I'm hoping they'll be able to go out on a high note.
For our Canadian friends who've already seen at least some of the season, all I don't mind if you want to post spoilers, but all I ask is that you code them.
Sadly I work until 10:00 tonight, so I probably won't be watching this until Saturday or Sunday.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

Oh, thanks for telling me. My TV listings page doesn't have it listed as a new episode (which I'd attribute to its being an import, but it does list Bitten as new before it).

Last season was dire. I really hope they've managed to get their act together for the swan song.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

So far, no sign that they've gotten their act together. This felt just as vague and unfocused as the last season, with lots of nebulous hints about some ill-defined big bad, and it actually managed to be boring too. The show isn't even sexy anymore.

I had thought that we'd only get an abbreviated final season, but I must've been thinking of Continuum. Apparently this final season is actually 16 episodes, longer than normal, and is being split into two 8-episode runs. So we still have 15 more of these to get through. If they're gonna be like this, I'm not sure it'll be worth it.

Apparently Syfy nobody is going to be posting streaming episodes, so it looks like I'll have to wait for Netflix.

JD, if you do youtube, you can find the eps there. They're shrunk down to iphone size, but they're there.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

I don't watch illegally posted stuff unless I have no other option. This is pretty much guaranteed to come out on DVD/Blu-Ray eventually and Netflix has the other four seasons, so they'll probably add this one too. So I'm willing to wait.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

Looks like this season is going to be just as trippy as the last. Valhalla as a swank hotel? Tamsin turning into Jack Nicholson? Kenzie getting an invitation to her own wedding? Hale all enigmatic?

It was kind of an odd premiere. Trick and Dyson were sidelined and there was a serious dearth of their trademark sexiness. Nevertheless, I can't wait to see where that elevator to infinity goes. And they better get Kenzie out of that coffin quickly.

Yeah, Kenzie doesn't have Buffy strength to dig her way out on her own.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

She does, however, have the "something borrowed" knife that Bo gave her. And the matches, and something else that may come in handy. How contrived that the gifts Bo managed to scrounge together just happen to be useful (presumably).

Also, if she woke up back in her real body, why isn't she wearing what her corpse was wearing when she was buried? For that matter, when was she buried? I thought she physically passed through a portal into wherever. Am I forgetting something?

Maybe its a empty grave, like Sara And Oliver's were on Arrow.

I think Kenzi's body/spirit went to the after life with Tamsin but just the spirit was roaming the halls of Hotel Valhalla.

Re: Lost Girl Season 5 on Syfy

Man, this show has a microscopic budget these days. They couldn't even afford to show Kenzi being rescued from her grave, they just skipped over it and talked about it afterward. Very anticlimactic. And the monster Lauren and Kenzi faced was invisible, and even then we didn't really see most of their battle with it. And the face-off between Tamsin and her sister Valkyrie was resolved with trash talk? Really?

Still, this was a somewhat better episode than we've had in a while, to damn with faint praise. At least it actually had some sexy stuff, although they had to go and blow it by revealing afterward that it was technically kind of almost incestuous. (Damn, Persephone, way to bury the lede...)

Although... Bo's mysterious father is Hades? Literally Hades? That's... a little over-the-top.

No comment on the exit near the end?

Didn't want to spoil it. Mainly, I'm just wondering why they'd kill her off, bring her back, then write her out anyway. Why not just leave her dead?


The thing I did forget to comment about, since I didn't really think it through until later, was that the invisible ghost/demon thing basically raped Lauren under the pretense of being Bo, and nobody in the story seems to think that's a problem.
