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,

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
living with hypothyroid disease
Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
