Re: Season 5 of Lost Girl will be the last

While I know the show is a Canadian import from Showcase, I do think it's odd that nothing has ever lasted on the Sci-Fi channel for more than 5 seasons. Even the longer running shows that they've aired that they picked up from other networks only lasted 5 or less. Stargate SG-1 lasted 5 seasons on Showtime and the other 5 on Sci-Fi. Similarly, they picked up the last 3 seasons of MST3K after Comedy Central cancelled it. And while they carried the 1st 4 seasons of the new Doctor Who, it moved to BBC America in time for Season 5.

Oh, geez! Pun totally not intended there. But, yes, lets all try our best to forget Crazy Train!

I still can't help but feel that episodes like "In Memorium" & "Waves" just demonstrated how much better the show was without Bo, when they let Kenzi take the spotlight.

Kenzi could definitely front her own show. Here's hoping Ksenia Solo gets more work soon.

Yeah, many is the time I've thought Buffy The Vampire Slayer would have been better without Buffy.

But then you run into the whole "The show is about her" thing...

Same here...

They could always just pull a The Closer/Major Crimes and get rid of Anna Silk, but keep everyone else and make Ksenia Solo the lead. It's not gonna happen obviously, but a guy can dream.

Well, she's a girl and she could get lost, so the title could still fit.

Which is why I vastly preferred Angel.

But, yeah, crossing my fingers for some kind of spin-off after Bo's adventures conclude. If we can't get the Kenzi show, maybe the Vex show?
