Trivia

In an interview for Sky, Christina Cole said she was a bit startled by her nude shower scene in episode two. Although the scene was shot nude, her back was to the camera most of the time and she believed she was being shot from the shoulders up. Apparently members of her family were not amused. See more »

Randall and Hop-Dyke (deceased)
31 October 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It is very hard to review a series after only 2 episodes, but I am getting the feeling that this really does have potential. Admitedly it is nice to see a British paranormal drama, but I think it is unfair that people are trying to compare it to American counterparts already. It isn't Buffy and it isn't Charmed (at least not yet).

The scene is set at a very nice Gothic-esque boarding school, our heroine (Cassie) finds an old vase which was used in voodoo rituals 400 years ago and gets visions, starts seeing ghosts, and finally meets up with a very dishy demon.

Well thats the synopsis, and it's hard to write anything else. It doesn't seem to know which direction it is going in, there don't appear to be cliffhangers at the end or when there are, they are so unbelievably understated that if you blink you realize you've actually missed it, the story is a little convoluted and has jumped enormous steps from the pilot to the 2nd episode.

The absolute highlight however is Thelma, the lesbian best friend of our heroine and ex room mate (well she got killed in the pilot and now comes back as a ghost - Anyone else think the Thelma name was just a little bit Scooby lesbian???) She is quick witted, sharp, and certainly has the potential to be the saving grace of this series. Her ability to go into other pupils dreams and act out her lesbian fantasies was the highlight of the second episode "Well whats a lesbian ghost to do" she explains coyly. How none of the other pupils have noticed packets of crisps and chocolates floating in mid air while she is snacking, at the moment seems to be overlooked.

The other characters have since been sidestepped since the pilot. Cassie remains a good lead although a little hard to empathise with strangely. Her crush (Troy) has the personality of a limp lettuce, his girlfriend seems not to care that suddenly he is spending time with Cassie who her clicky group of friends all hate. The "popular bitch" Roxanne who resembles Cleopatra on smack (in a good way), was featured heavily in the pilot showing how much of a cow she is, and had barely anything to do in the next episode. The demon Azazeal has yet to prove he can do anything except kill lesbians. Goodlooking though he may be, the director seems more content with continuous close ups of his blood veined eyes... Who he is and what he is going to do has yet to be established though if we don't find out soon, I doubt anyone will really care.

I know that this is new and to contradict myself lets look quickly at the pilots of Buffy and Charmed, each one did set the characters up, we knew about them, we had a rough idea where it was going, with Hex, it's hard to remember their names, let alone care who they are.

Saying all this, I still think it has potential, it is just a bit of a slow burner at the moment. I can't explain why it is appealing, but I am convinced that in a short time it will have a very large fan base.
