The Nephilim (somewhat different spelling from that used in the series) are mentioned only briefly in the Biblical book of Genesis, and in more detail in several Apocryphal books including The Book of Enoch and The Secrets of Enoch. In those texts, the Watchers are a troop of angels tasked with watching over and protecting Mankind. They become infatuated with mortal women, descend to Earth and have their way with them, spawning a race of gigantic monsters, the Nephilim. For the sin of lust, the Watchers are banished from Heaven and are condemned to roam the Earth for eternity. Out of revenge, they teach Mankind the arts of magic and warfare. Their leader is sometimes called "Azazel" or "Azaziel". See more »
After seeing the first episode I wasn't sure whether to continue watching. Other than Thelma, the acting was pretty weak. However, hang in there as Christina Cole (Cassie) finds her feet and Azazeal is extremely cool.
This one is much raunchier and less moralistic than most American TV shows. I loved Buffy too, but it was always trying to tell us how to the right thing and everyone did a lot of unnecessary suffering. In Hex the heroin sometimes takes the low (moral) road which enables some interesting character and plot developments. Lets face it, girls are often attracted to some pretty destructive men - the girls often see their more vulnerable side - Azazeal plays this sweet badboy perfectly.
This is not a visual show (although, as someone noted the countryside is pretty). The special effects are almost non-existent. It is a psychological thriller and the characters and music make it scary.
Hex actually has elements from a number of genres, not least of which is some black comedy (which Brit's excel at). Thelma is fabulous!
