Summary of "Season 1 - Looks Great!": Well, I was right, the show looks a lot better on Blu-ray (and sounds better, too). FUNimation did a top-notch job with the A/V on this release, but the extras leave a LOT to be desired. The navigation for them is truly abysmal, the content is severely lacking, and the quality is pretty much crap. I don't know what happened there, but the crew interviews, and the behind-the-scenes clips look really bad, while the cast interviews just look like normal SD material. I think the problems are magnified because it's on Blu-ray, so you go from looking at near-pristine HD material, to something that looks as though it's 320x240. I also really, really don't like forced trailers. I accidentally stopped a disc while it was on the main menu, and when I played it again I had to sit through the forced trailer. I liked watching it the first time I saw it (I didn't even try to skip it), but I really, really hated being forced to sit through it a second time.
Lost Girl is a wonderful show, and the A/V on this disc is great, just don't get excited over the bonus material because it'll let you down. (read entire review)
Season 1 (CAN) - A bad start to a good show (5/02/2012)
Summary of "Season 1 (CAN) - A bad start to a good show": I've spent many hours/days/months/years watching Canadian TV, and I've noticed that it's getting better and better all the time. It used to be that "Canadian TV" meant something that was low-budget, cheesy, and sometimes poorly acted and written. Watching the first two episodes of Lost Girl brought me back to the time when Canadian TV was garbage. I really wasn't a fan of the show at all, and wondered how it could have generated so many emails to the site. I considered turning the TV off and ejecting the disc, never to revisit it again. The thing is, I've rarely turned something off, because I always hope it'll get better (even when it doesn't, like Bob's Burgers). I wasn't alone here, as my wife thought exactly the same thing I did. Then we watched episode 3. I don't know what happened, but the show was infinitely better than the first two episodes, and the episodes kept getting better and better after that. We struggled through those first episodes, and then we struggled to turn the TV off for the last 11 (darn sleep!). If you happened to only see the first few episodes of the show, you should definitely give it another shot.
The set currently sells on Amazon.ca for around $30 CAN (which is around $30 US, though you'll have to pay for shipping). Given that we don't have a US release date for the show, and eOne doesn't own the US rights, it may be best to consider importing the Canadian release. No, there aren't any extras, but you'll get all the episodes, that look and sound very good.
I can't wait for the second season, which is 22 episodes, to be released on DVD. Maybe this summer? Cross your fingers. Has anyone else noticed that Kris Holden-Ried (Dyson) looks almost identical to Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay? Just compare the photos of Holden-Ried and Martin. (read entire review)
