This is a contemporary fantasy/ paranormal murder mystery kind of series that features a succubus playing a PI.
The story begins with the heroine, Bo, working at a bar. Some sleazy guy tries to give her a drugged drink, and after she shuts him down he moves on to target a young girl. Bo follows them onto an elevator, and just before the guy is about to make him move on the kid, Bo makes a move on him. She kisses him… but the kiss turns into her sucking out his life force. The kid, Kenzi, follows Bo home and becomes her accomplice throughout the series. The police track Bo down and finds out that these two police officers aren’t exactly what they seem to be, and neither is she. They take her to a building and a guy tells her that she is fae, and like all of the other fae, she must choose a side to align herself with, light or dark. Bo chooses neither of these and instead strikes out on her own, with Kenzi, and ends up becoming a paranormal PI, to help people with potentially deadly problems others would just laugh off.
The episodes usually involve some sort of unexplainable problem like a kid who disappeared, or a senseless murder, something that is unfortunate, but can be passed of as an everyday issue, it doesn’t need an explanation. Bo however is hired, or somehow drawn into this situation and unlike other people, she digs a little deeper and finds out that there is something a little too fantastical about the situation to be normal, and then goes on to discover a different type of fae. Bo of course doesn’t know any types of fae, not even what she herself is (until it is explained to her) because she was abandoned by her fae parents to grow up with human foster parents. Her first encounter with her abilities is when she was having her first relationship with a boy. He would up dead. As a succubus, Bo gets energy from feeding off of desire and lust, but as a beginner, she is unable to control herself, and ends up killing whoever she tries to sleep with or kiss, as humans can’t take her power.
Bo’s ultimate objective is to find out who her parents were and why they abandoned her.
When I first heard of the series I didn’t really want to watch it. It sounded campy and cheesy and striving to be another CSI spinoff show. When I actually got into it however I really started to enjoy it. Yes it does have it’s share of cheesy lines, cheesy cheesy lines, but the story is good. A private investigator is actually a perfect occupation to introduce people who don’t know about the faerie world to the different kinds of fae. A PI ignorant of the fae is even better. If you’re not too comfortable with sexuality this show might make you a little uncomfortable. There isn’t any showing of parts, but it’s a show about a succubus, so sex will be involved. She has sex to heal herself as well as to feed, and she doesn’t pay attention to little things like gender. Where I am now in the show she has two potential lovers, rivals in love if you will, and one is a man, a werewolf, and the other is a human woman. As would be expected of a show of this nature, there is also a bit of gore. The show really grows on you though. I was skeptical at first, but I’m actually really looking forward to watching the next episode.
All in all I recommend that you check it out, as it’s pretty good! And informative.
Here is the intro of the show.
