Lost Girl is a cult hit among supernatural, fantasy, and horror fans. The show was aired on Syfy and ran for six seasons. In the world of Lost Girl there are supernatural beings known as fae. Over the course of the show, we have seen werewolves, succubi, gods, and even mermaids. These fae are split into two factions: the light side and the dark side. The show follows the succubus Bo, her best friend Kenzi, her grandfather Trick, and other friends that she has met on her journey to discover herself. The show is a hit among the LGBT community as well, mostly because it takes a different approach to sexuality. It’s really quite brilliant – among the various romances and triangles, everything is made to seem perfectly normal. No big deal is made when Bo switches back and forth between Dyson and Lauren, for example.
The last season of Lost Girl is split into two parts. I know, waiting for the whole story killed me too. At the beginning of season five, Bo is travelling to Valhalla in order to rescue Kenzi, who risked her life in the previous season. During this rescue mission, she ends up in Tartarus. Here, she finally finds out who her father is. During Bo’s escape she is tricked into releasing the two big bads for the season – Zeus, Hera, and Iris. In Lost Girl, Zeus is female and Hera is male. Although we may know them as Greek gods, they are actually just the most powerful fae in existence. Bo finds herself battling Iris, Hera, and Zeus during season five. The end of the world is coming, and she has to take a chance in order to stop it from happening.
Eventually, Hades is released. Hades is played by Eric Roberts, who is an absolute genius in this show. Bo has a hard time figuring out what his plans are, and as we get into season six, we start to like him more. But what’s his game? He’s up to something, but he’s biding his time before starting his own fight with Bo and the rest of the gang. The finale gave the show the justice that it deserved. You have the epic battles that go with the territory of the end of the season. In addition, Lost Girl does not forget about providing us with the witty one liners that we love and crave. During the season finale of Lost Girl it does a good job of giving us the feeling of lost hope in the final moments.

Overall, this Blu Ray pack of the last seasons of Lost Girl is a great addition to the collection of fans of the cult hit.

Saying goodbye to Lost Girl has been bittersweet, but I couldn’t ask for a better final goodbye.
