H is for… Hex
Hex was a British supernatural TV series that was shown between 2004 and 2005. It ran for two series, the first just 6 episodes, the second 13.
Cassie attends a remote English school and has to face up to her destiny when a curse is released and she starts seeing the fallen angel Azazeal who wants her to join him on the dark side. Her friend Thelma tries to help her choose the right path but the lure of her new powers, and Azazeal are seductive.
The tagline for this series was Bloody. Hell. If that doesn’t make you want to watch it nothing I say will ;o) Along with Being Human this is definitely a case of Brits getting Supernatural right.
Azazeal was played by Michael Fassbender so it wasn’t hard to believe that Cassie would fall for him.
A character called Troy was played by Joseph Morgan – who has now returned to the supernatural with his role as Klaus in The Vampire Diaries. It always interests me when I recognise actors who have played parts in similar genre roles before. Joss Whedon is very proficient in re-using his favourites in different shows.
The two female leads Cassie (Christina Cole) and Thelma (Jemima Rooper) are joined by Ella (Laura Pyper) in series two and together they work to battle the Nephelim and aim to prevent the end of the world each making sacrifices in the process.
I really shouldn’t have picked this topic, this is making me want to rewatch all these shows now.
And a quick nod to Highlander
I have to admit to having a bit of an Adrian Paul crush when watching this.
Any fellow Hex fans out there?
