IDC ,...I only watched the episode with the gratuitous lesbian/semi- nude part,.. Other than that the show is nowhere near as good as GRIMM, or Being Human.. Heck I'll wager that without Being Human as a lead in show, this show would fall off the face of the earth rather quickly. But,... Hey SEX sells.. So the more they have the better it might be IMO.

Funny you should mention two shows I couldn't care less about and don't think are anywhere as good as Lost Girl.... :P

Apparently the show intends to teach teens (the main audience) how to have sex, with males and females, without actually showing full frontal nudity.

Lost Girl is not aimed at teenagers; it's why the show has a TV-MA rating.

Those who don't want their children to be "taught how to have sex" from a TV show can exercise the skill formerly known as parenting.

You do know that......the depiction of sex and nudity, in (U.S) Being human.....is the same way they are depicted in Lost girl....right. :blink:

What makes you qualified to judge a show based on one episode? That's like judging an entire book on a random chapter taken out of context.

Grimm and Being Human are relegated to the "Grow-up Shows" at my house. No one under 18 watches them. On Demand is a wonderful thing.

Is anyone upset that I posted tiny clips of the Lost Girl series on YouTube with a focus on humor instead of violence, sex and nudity?

I call it 'Lost Girl Humor', and I hope that the two clips from Season 2 does not spoil the show for anyone. My hope is that more people will see that the show has some high quality moments, thanks to Kenzi of course. Leave comments here or on YouTube, and let me know if you want me to keep posting. I stopped/paused at S02E08.

I will be working on the Stargate humor clips for a while.

Yeah but Being Human is a better show IMO though...The depiction of sex is all Lost Girl has going for it...To me it is a boring a contrived concept and story line, without the sex this show is a flusher ( again, IMO)....Although,.. some gratuitous lesibian scenes in Being Human sure as hell couldn't hurt.. ;)

To each there own I guess.. I actually have seen more than one episode of Lost Girl, but I still don't think it is that great ( again IMO).. Just as you don't think the shows that I like are any good.. But that is what makes America great isn't it?? ..Differing viewpoints in a free society.

Wow congrats for finding my typo.Good for you..What I meant to say/express was the only episode that I watched that I somewhat liked was the lesbian one because of the sex...I also saw the episode with the other territorial succubus in it as well, and IMO I found it lacking.. Regardless of the typo...
My now deleted response post towards you that you said was so harsh, was still spot on the money though. I'll say it again though..WTH are you again to judge and chastise MY opinions??....Do you see me chastising YOUR opinion and viewpoints?...No you don't... so I'll say it again, whether it gets deleted again or not. WTH are you again to JUDGE and CHASTISE others opinions and viewpoints just because you disagree with them? MY mind qualifies MY opinion and outtakes on things. .. If you wish to argue/disagree with MY opinion that is fine, but to critisize me for my opinion and viewpoint on something is and always will be IMO dead wrong.. This is America, not China bud.

Well, what I see right here is NOT an well thought out opinion, but a rant or temper tanturm over a 6 or 7 sentance post where 2 of them addressed you. Hummmm, I don't see you chastising my opinions, I see you attacking me for no reason at all. Your post made it sound as if you were jumping to conclusions and I, reasonably, without malic, asked how that was a fair thing to do. You, on the other hand, instead of talking calmly and rationally, berate me, the last post used foul language and belittle me. I've done none of that. That's not reasonable dialogue, I asked a question expecting an answer not a rant against me. I didn't criticize you, I didn't call you names, I asked a question. Answer or not. Don't treat me like trash.

I am not talking about pornography or sexual content. Sometimes we forget about sensuality, exotic/erotic scenes, and beauty as part of a story. Two examples of misplaced nudity or sexual content might help. The first episode of SG-1 with total nudity, and the first episode of SGU, with sex in the closet. Both series failed to follow up on the theme, and it is fairly obvious that these teasers were a bit fraudulent. Both scenes were very sexual in content and irrelevant to the story, although they were very funny. A movie like Flesh Gordon is funny, and nudity is the story.

But what if SyFy were to go the naturist route? Scenes like skinny dipping, taking a shower, streaking, clothing 'malfunctions' and so on. No sexual activity, no close-ups, no nasty intent. Just simple everyday nudist camp sort of scene. This content could easily be integrated into a series, and done in a way that is tasteful and not offensive.

I understand that a book like mine can get away with nude scenes, and many TV programs would catch hell for it. But SyFy is liberal in every way, and even anti-religion in so many stories. With a dominant liberal audience, why not just tell the conservative anti-nude *** to just **** off. If you get 10 million more viewers, and drop 3 million; who cares about the complaints? Besides, the religious nuts often help a show with all the free publicity.

So, what show would benefit? Here is my partial list:

Survival shows set in the tropics, without a doubt.
Stargate movies, maybe.
Lost girl?
The Seeker, or castles and dragons style show, oh yes.

I leave it to you to add more ideas.




JUST wanted 2 add my 2 cents ..... I totally agree with everything said above, but I like seeing MORE of Dyson, & His Siren partner as well >:) they r hott

Well now, I hadn't thought about this from a female's perspective, and shame on my male-sexist attitude. I suppose we could tolerate more male bare behinds, since Bo certainly has had her share of full exposure. Women do enjoy a bare chest and or butt on TV, which is something I learned from my ex-wife as she handed me the divorce papers.

Butt wait a minute. The question is not what body parts we want to see, butt whether SyFy can survive in competition with the Internet. Let's face it, if you ask anyone to choose between all the porn on the web, or these mild teasers on Lost Girl, which do you think boys are going to pick? And girls certainly have plenty of websites to choose from, even if most of them are targeted towards male gays. As for the SyFy Channel, it all comes down to numbers, and anything less than 2 million viewers is barely making a profit.

And now comes the next problem SyFy has with this show. How many people are watching season 2 from Canada on torrents or news groups? Every day I monitor the piracy, and there are thousands of down-loaders EACH day. My research shows that SyFy is bleeding, and it did not help any when they let MGM screw up the Stargate shows, and pizz off millions of fans.

My opinions is that SyFy needs to play an active role in creating these shows. In addition, there are thousands of fan fiction writers out there who would love to contribute, for FREE! These TV Channels need to learn that the Internet can be an awesome tool for research and development. A massive amount of talent is available, if you know where to look and know how to Channel that talent.

OK, back to bare chests. I vote we give the girls one bare chest if the guys get to have one bare butt per episode. Or the reverse might work out even better; butt I don't think SyFy is ready to give us one bare female chest and one bare male butt per episode. Then again, I could be wrong.

The reason that I don't think a nude channel would work, let alone Syfy, is that women, at least the ones that I know, like more subtle sexuality. I don't want to watch male gay porn on the internet or any porn on the internet for that matter, it's "icky, I don't want to watch that.

A nice chest, a great back, the flash of a hipbone and the promise of what comes with it is sexy. Not a complety nude anything.

Most of the nudity on Lost Girl has been in the early episodes, I've only seen season one, but even the logo is suggestive of a woman's body and THAT alone should give people a clue about the content. The early episodes were defining a character, Bo's sexuality is a huge part of her character. Could we have gotten the info about her other ways with less skin, maybe, but the ratings wouldn't have been as good. Now, those scenes are less necessary. This show is, after all a character driven show. We need to know about the characters.

I asked this question prior to watching all of the first season, and for that I apologize. Apparently the show intends to teach teens (the main audience) how to have sex, with males and females, without actually showing full frontal nudity. Which is very odd. Compare the total nudity in the unedited pilot to Stargate with the sexual intercourse scenes in Lost Girl. Now ask yourself, which is more pornographic? Evidently the star of the show is going to spend more time on her back than in battle; so I guess we will have a full dose of both sex and violence.

Oddly enough, what I found most repulsive is the video game where you kill hooker robots, or whatever it was the kid was playing. Killing the female vampire creature a few minutes later didn't bother me so much. Maybe what I am seeing here is a difference between defensive killing and aggressive killing, especially of females. Teaching teens aggressive killing is begging for trouble, which is probably what most people are complaining about.

A few other comments. The 'romantic' struggle between Bo and Dyson is childish, way out of character, and should have been left out of the story. Even teens can see that Bo is not the type to 'fall in love', and most of the conversations she has regarding this problem are rather ludicrous. Try and imagine her walking down the street, holding hands with any guy, or saying on the phone 'I love you sweets, come home soon.' Like YUK. I find it easier to imagine her kicking some guy in the nuts, just to hear the crunch and scream that follows.

When you cut someone with a knife, you will get blood all over the blade, and yourself. The special effects people need to work on that some. Teens need to realize that carrying a knife can and probably will have extremely serious consequences.

That's all for now, gotta go. A couple of Jehovah's Witnesses are at the door, so maybe I get to kick some nuts for a change.

Brother Jon



I did not expect Bo to fall for Dyson so quickly. I agree that it is not in line with my expectations for her and it got silly...along with some of the fae sex scenes with the buildings shaking whenever the fae get it on. It got OTT and I nearly stopped watching, but thankfully they phased that out and made it less silly. I enjoy Lost Girl and my comments are not intended to bash the show.

I just had a brilliant idea. Why not split SyFy into 2 channels. One G rated for families, and one R rated for adults-only.

I totally agree with parents who think that SyFy has gone too far into sex and violence (S-V). Science fiction is a wonderful world for kids to explore, and if we take out the S-V, we still have tons of movies and potential series for families, Christians, Muslims etc.

On the other hand, both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Universe began with porn in the pilot, then dropped it. Lost Girl kept it going, and is now in a third season in spite of the poor quality.

So why not please everyone with 2 channels? What about an R-rated Showtime-SyFy combo channel?

And producers can even create 2 versions of a show, in exactly the same way that the pilot for Stargate SG-1 was released with 2 versions.

Am I a genius or what? (please do not answer that question with 4 letter words Posted Image )

Isn't this the same discussion as when Hill Street Blues was on?
Wait, no it's not, that was broadcast television, this is cable, where subscriptions mean less censorship and no commercials.

Ok, so it's none of those things anymore, but is it difficult to find something else to fill an hour if this show's just too much for you? You can always go to wwe.com and watch more wrestling. Reruns of ghost chasers is on SyFy's website as well.

There was no nudity on Hill Street Blues. Perhaps you mean NYPD Blue.
