Sky 1 Sunday evenings. Starring Christina Cole and Jemima Rooper.
Favourite quote from this week’s episode: “You’re going to fuck me up aren’t you?”
I love this program!! Totally rude just for the pure indulgence of it, but somehow it manages to get away with it. It’s hilarious the way Thelma hides behind things and creeps around despite being a ghost and no-one except Cassie being able to see her. And Jemima Rooper plays the part brilliantly. (isn’t she lucky that she gets to wear a really cool dress for the rest of time?) She didn’t really have a lot to say this week, but her character shines whenever she’s on screen.
I have to say Christina Cole did a pretty good job as the horny bitch of possessed Cassie, and then going back to normal again.
But we’ve got to have some answers otherwise we’re going to spend more time asking questions to ourselves than actually just watching the program. Like, why was Cassie hung over when she was only in the freaky club for about 2 minutes? What is it exactly that Azazeal wants? How come after a few police about initially there was no inquiry to Thelma’s death? Was it presumed suicide or what? How come she can eat crisps but can’t touch people? Etc etc
At the moment it doesn’t matter, because I like Hex so much, but if it carries on in this way, then I think it could get too much.
This could be the beginnings of a Hex fan site! I believe there’s a dvd of the series due out in January; I hope there’ll be lots of extras on it.
Ps. I love the theme tune by Garbage. I wonder if they’ll release it as a single.
