The film PATCHTOWN, starring Zoie Palmer, will open the 2014 Canadian Film Fest 20 March at 7pm at the Royal Theatre, 608 College St. in Toronto. PATCHTOWN will be preceded by the 16 minute short BASTARDS, which stars Tommie-Amber Pirie and Paul Amos.

The series BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE can now be streamed on Netflix (US). This is relevant because Tammy Gillis (Table for Fae) makes an appearance in episode 3.10 as Karen Gilday, the wife of Anthony Lemke‘s character Marcus Gilday. Marcus sticks around for another 5 episodes of BMS. (Lemke was Ryan Lambert in 5 eps of LOST GIRL, including Table for Fae.)

Another LOST GIRL alumnus to be found in BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE is Erica Deutschman (Milk Maid #1 in La Fae Epoque. She turns up as Becca in BMS 2.12.
Bianca Murgel as Mylene in FAE DAY (Lost Girl 1.9)
Bjanka Murgel (Mylene in Fae Day) will be Amanda Airdale in the film FALSE COLORS, a political thriller, due to be released in the US soon, about a weapons inspector in Iraq.
Elias Toufexis (Michael Connel in Where There’s a Will, There’s a Fae) will be Joey Stillwell in the 10th episode of BITTEN, which will air sometime in March on SyFy (US). The regular cast of BITTEN includes several folk who have made LOST GIRL appearances, including Genelle Williams (Hessa in Table for Fae), Natalie Brown (Sabine Purcell in I Fought the Fae and the Fae Won), and Greg Bryk (Cleasby in Lauchlin’s Gambit).
Bo washing the Camaro in the opening scene – “Goodbye underfae guts”
TAMSIN:“Here, right in front of everybody?” BO:“Oh, they won’t remember. Besides, tell me this wasn’t on your list.”

Bo and Tamsin finally have sex (in the middle of a Yule Party) although we do not witness more than a kiss. Yes the loop lasted long enough. If Bo has time to arm wrestle a sasquatch, she has time to have sex. The loop may have enabled repeat performances.
All shows do time-loop stories. Buffy’s was episode #106, Life Serial, in which three mischievous nerds ensnare Buffy in a repeating first day at work at the magic shop. On LOST GIRL, Krampus’ evil assistant causes Bo and Tamsin to continually repeat a Yule party. Since the party’s theme features such human notions as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Krampus, the legendary Germanic anti-Santa, snatches people from it for desecrating Fae tradition, and turns them into candy. The more bad karma they have, the more lollipops and gumdrops can be made from them. Bruce (Rob Archer), despite working for the Dark, is so pure of heart that the machine breaks when it tries to convert him.
Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten), securely strapped to the Krampus candy machine, offers Bo “first lick”.
TAMSIN [to Bo]:“If they make me into a lollipop, I want you to have the first lick”
Bo, looking for help with the time loop, awakens a drunken Trick
Though this is a stand-alone episode (nothing happens that is essential to any continuing story line) It does follow from the Angelus references in La Fae Epoque. Every show does a Christmas story and so did Buffy. The Buffy Xmas ep was Amends, part two of the Season 3 finale (an episode laden with guilt-ridden flashbacks), in which Angelus attempts suicide by sunrise and is talked out of that by Buffy.
It turns out that the Fae perversely celebrate Yule in summer. This might indicate that they originated in the southern hemisphere, and when they moved north they kept celebrating the festival on the same date, although the season was different. Dr. Lewis indicated early in the series that the Fae had been around longer than humans. The fact that the earliest records of human Yule celebrations involve the winter solstice does not preclude the notion that it originated as a Fae fest south of the equator. It just means the humans changed it to conform to the proper season. The reference to “Atlantean quartz” in Episode 4.7 may also indicate southern hemisphere origins. One of the possible locations for the lost Atlantean civilization is eastern Brazil. Eikþyrnir the Stag is repeatedly referenced, and large Cervidae are not usually found in the southern hemisphere, which would make the occurence of an outsized one just that much more remarkable and worthy of story.
SYNCHRONICITY – Rob Archer (Bruce) will play the principal role of Krampus in what he describes as a “Xmas/thriller/horror film” that will begin shooting soon.

Ken Hall (Jeffrey) is Kenny in PATCHTOWN, a film starring Zoie Palmer which had it first US screening at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January. In the film, Jon (the central character, an abandoned toy played by Rob Ramsay) returns to work in an oppressive factory where babies born in the cabbage patch are processed to be sent to expectant mothers. There is as yet no word on a date for the film’s general release.
