After getting hooked on Lost Girl when it started airing on SyFy, I’ve been a faithful follower and advocate of this Canadian import that skirted and crossed a line that most American shows don’t cross. Back when the first season premiered on SyFy, I was pleasantly surprised that the network seemingly went against the grain and aired the first season without editing the episodes for time and content. That unedited first season was all part of the bargain that SyFy made to get the series on their network, and unfortunately would be the only season to air in that fashion. The second season aired immediately following the end of the first, but this time around, edits were made. The show suffered a bit as content was removed from what Canadian audiences viewed, as well as the lengthy 22 episode (very uncommon for SyFy) season. The edits aren’t Syfy’s fault as they are made on the production end and those edited episodes are what SyFy is given, but it’s still a crying shame. There was a bit of a hiatus (although not as long as what Canadians had to deal with) before the shortened 13 episode season three aired, but SyFy stuck by the show and ran it as part of their “Powerful Mondays” line up along with Being Human and the other Canadian import, Continuum.
I still have yet to make it to Comic-Con and while it normally doesn’t bug me that I haven’t ever gone, it sort of did this year. The sheer size of the event is enough to turn me off of it because quite frankly, I’m not sure I could deal with the hordes upon hordes of people who migrate to San Diego for 4 days every July. Yet each year I do have that “oh man, I should really try to go next year” feeling. This year I had the “DAMN IT WHY DIDN’T I TRY TO GO!!!!!!” feeling. If I’m being completely honest, I would have gone for one panel. That’s it…just one. The Lost Girl panel.
