Guest stars are an important but often overlooked element of successful TV episodes. We discuss some of our favorite guest stars that have appeared on Lost Girl over the seasons.
While Lost Girl has provided very refreshing portrayals of queer characters, it unfortunately has fallen into the same pattern as many sci-fi/fantasy shows in regards to its representation of non-white characters. We discuss how non-white characters have been portrayed on Lost Girl, including how Hale’s storyline has been treated as well as the show’s use of the human/Fae divide as a metaphor to talk about race.
We love on K.C. Collins this week and share our appreciation for Hale and the actor who plays him. We talk about our favorite Hale moments, what we love about Hale, and sing the praises of our favorite siren.
Hale has been through some changes since we first met him, evolving from a more one-dimensional ladies’ man character to a more fleshed out individual struggling with people’s expectations of him. We discuss Hale’s journey from sidekick to acting Ash, Hale’s approach to power, how his character challenges gender expectations, and more.
Dyson is often described as an “alpha male,” and while he certainly does act out that role often, his portrayal and his storyline includes some elements that differ from the stereotypical alpha male. We discuss his non-romantic relationships with women, whether he could be in a non-monogamous relationship with Bo, and more.
Gateway episodes: what episodes got fans hooked on Lost Girl and what episodes are used to introduce the show to new viewers? We discuss both the episodes that got us hooked and the episode we think would make a good gateway episode to show to new viewers. Listeners contribute their gateway episodes as well.
