This last LOST GIRL episode, Original Skin borrows devices from other franchises. But even if having the cast switch bodies does harken back to the first Scooby Doo film, LOST GIRL used the device well, making Dyson, Kenzie, and Bo explore each other’s unconscious desires. Bo spends most of the episode in the body of a male bounty hunter, and Kenzi gets Dyson’s body for the night.
Another borrowed device, the Nain Rouge (red dwarf), a “harbinger of disaster” played by Hayley Nault reminds one a bit (although she is not evil) of ANGEL’s Messektet (Kay Panabaker).
Quotes from ORIGINAL SKIN:
“Are all faeries this freakin’ jealous?”
“Only when they’ve been lied to.”
Kenzi (in Dyson’s body): “There’s some kind of foot fetish going on in here.”
Bo (in bounty hunter’s body): “I think that’s you.”
