It’s a Fae, Fae World
If there is one thing I know we all love, it’s a supernatural drama. Mystery. Romance. Weird creatures with complicated revenge plots. It’s all relative to a world of fantasy; science-fiction at its best. We connect with these places of make-believe to escape our everyday routines, to travel into the mystical unknown for the occasional forty to fifty minutes – depending on how many monotonous commercials we have to endure. We visit these places to extract our daily dose of entertainment; to nerd-out over dialogue and to spend some time with our favorite characters. The supernatural drama is a predominant part of contemporary literary fiction, but also plays a substantial role in the diverse world of modern television. Almost every channel has one – a cast of characters living and surviving in a world where monsters are literally hiding under the bed. We all have our favorites; shows that drive your imagination, maybe eliciting a few superhuman daydreams in the process. Yet every season, there is another new batch of exciting shows ready to be programmed into our DVR’s. With so many out there, how is it possible to know exactly which ones to watch? Well, that’s where I come in. I am proud to introduce you to a new series all about shows you should be watching, but hopefully, some of you all ready love. While this is the time most shows are wrapping up their seasons, I think this is the perfect opportunity to give you the inside 411 on a few that are definitely worth watching. For those interested: No, not all shows will be about the supernatural. I will try to bring as many various genres to the table as I can, but if one or three slip in there, just go with it. By the time we’re through, I genuinely expect your Netflix queue to be full, overflowing with soon-to-be favorites.
Let us begin our journey, here. Lost Girl. Combine a sexy succubus, a heated love-triangle (I love those), add a best friend (the human variety, of course); throw in a bitter clash between two magical races, one handsome leading man, a few mythical creatures; top it all off with a dash of comedy, and you have the makings of a sure-fire hit. Seriously, what’s not to like? Though, admit it, I had you at succubus.
