Hex

On Sky One on Sundays at 9pm starring Christina Cole, Jemima Rooper and Laura Piper

I marked this in my diary as soon as I got the date for the second series of Hex and I’m so pleased this time it’s got a decent thirteen episodes. The budget must have increased as the effects were better too.

If you haven’t seen it before, you can catch up from the dvd of the first series (£24.99 in Sainsburys; or Amazon) and actually I think you would need to watch it to understand what’s going on; but I’m sure you’ll get into it even if you haven’t.

The first episode wasn’t a disappointment and continued the story about the mysterious pregnancy. I like the fact that Cassie’s teacher, played Anna Wilson-Jones, is now involved too. I love that there is more interraction with Thelma now that this new character has come along; though no one quite knows what she is yet. I wonder if the other ghost that appeared briefly at the end of last series will return?

I do have a few critisisms though. Mainly – I was hugely disappointed with Thelma’s change of costume. I fully understand that she wants to be wearing something different (though I still want that dress) ; but honestly – a leaperd print camisole type top and skinny cropped jeans???? Thelma’s character would never wear something as mainstream fashionable as that, and I really hope she finds another dead person to exchange clothes with soon.

Also, the makers of Hex have got to understand that although we love it, and are willing to go along with the fantasy of it – some things have really got to be explained. Some really obvious things like although we know other people can’t see Thelma, but can they hear her? She made a pretty big noise with the dustbin outside the church in this episode, so did Jo hear her? And (really overdue for an answer on this one) Why don’t people notice Cassie talking to thin air (When she’s talking to Thelma)? Is it really some kind of telepathy speaking?

And they mentioned that Cassie’s boyfriend didn’t come back, but didn’t say why. And is the new blonde girl a different actress but the same character, or a different character in that group of friends? We can accept lesbian ghosts and ancient devil things, but we need some basic explanations please.

Still, a highlight in my television week, and Sky 1 are on to a winner here.

Entertainment, TV,

10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
