GREY MATTERS: LOST GIRL is goofy, sexy entertainment, in a BUFFY vein

"Lost Girl" is no big deal, and yet, for me, on sheer level of affection, it’s up there with the ludicrously better "Luck," and I can barely wait for each episode to air. So WTF, right? Looked at on paper (or screen) my affection becomes even more baffling. It’s yet another televisual offering where creatures of legend turn out to be true – see "Grimm," "Mirror, Mirror," "Once Upon a Time," "Red Riding Hood," "Snow White and the Huntsman," etc. The production values and directorial style vary between modest and meh, and on first approach it at best achieves the amusement level of a third-tier "Buffy" episode.
