We showed you the new TV spot for upcoming Syfy series Bitten earlier today; that show premieres on January 13 at 10, preceded by the beloved Being Human at 9, and so cool so fun Lost Girl at 8. We have not one but two TV spots for the latter to share with you right now, after a quick (and remarkably vague, sorry) reminder of where we left off:
This season on Lost Girl, fate casts a wide shadow over the Fae world. With Bo’s (Anna Silk) return, the lines between Dark and Light Fae are blurred, causing her embark on a journey of discovery. Bo and company will ultimately realize that, regardless of the challenges and enemies they face, they’re stronger when they confront them together. George Takei (Star Trek) and Ali Liebert (Bomb Girls) are among the new season’s guest stars.
Lost Girl also stars Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Bo’s human sidekick and street-smart confidante; Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson, the shape shifting homicide detective and noble warrior of the Light Fae; Zoie Palmer as Lauren, the brilliant human doctor who competes with Dyson for Bo’s affection; Rick Howland as Trick, Bo’s grandfather and the ancient and mysterious Blood King, and K.C. Collins as Hale, Dyson’s partner and a Light Fae siren born of noble blood. Paul Amos returns as the ever devious Dark Fae Mesmer, Vex, and Emmanuelle Vaugier reprises her role as the evil Dark Fae leader, The Morrigan.

Now that we’re into December, those January premiere dates don’t seem so far away. Excellent! And to highlight those approaching series, Syfy has released some TV spots we’ll be sharing with you. We’ll start with the TV spot for new werewolf series Bitten starring Lauran Vandervoort (V), right after a reminder of the synopsis:
Based on the New York Times best-selling Women of the Otherworld novels by Kelley Armstrong, the 13-episode Bitten is an emotionally charged supernatural thriller starring Laura Vandervoort (Smallville, Ted) as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence.
Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena (Vandervoort) has abandoned her Pack and taken refuge in a new city. There, she works as a photographer and hides her werewolf existence from her new boyfriend. When bodies start turning up in her Pack’s backyard, Elena finds herself back at Stonehaven, the werewolves’ ancestral domain. Torn between two worlds and two loves, she quickly realizes that – when push comes to shove – she’ll stop at nothing to defend her Pack.
Bitten also stars Greg Bryk (A History of Violence) as werewolf Pack “Alpha” Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt (Alcatraz) as Elena’s werewolf ex-boyfriend Clayton Danvers, and Paul Greene (The Client List) as Elena’s current beau, Philip McAdams.

Last night was the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second in The Hobbit trilogy of films. In celebration of the premiere, over 30 screenshots have been released, along with some behind the scenes pics, all for us to relish until we finally get the Regular People premiere on December 13. These screen shots are an absolute visual feast.
Following the pics, take a look at our first chance to see Smaug in full; on the side of an Air New Zealand plane. Hobbit design company Weta had to create the dragon for the airline, since there’s no single shot that shows the entire dragon. Cool.
