I liked this series a lot. I loved the plot and the amazing camera work that set a fairly scary mood. There were scenes that were downright spooky. This series worked for a few reasons: (1) interesting characters played by good actors all around; (2) even though the plot was fantastic (fallen angels and witches), they set up a mythology that made it all work; and (3) great dialogue. Firstly, the main characters of Cassie with her demure shyness and Thelma with her brass (fill-in-the-blank) are a perfect pair. Azazeal is the requisite brooding dark male with loads of sex appeal. These three have some of the best dialogues I've heard in a while. The supporting cast is really good too. Leon (resident jerk), Troy (greek god on campus) and the Headmaster are stellar. Secondly, the whole mythology was well crafted and they stayed true throughout. I only had a problem with possession as in one case it was painful (random guy in bar who flirts w/Cassie) and in the other was so peaceful it happened while asleep (Troy). This minor irritation did not detract from the overall experience. Lastly, the dialogue contained within these six episodes are almost Whedon-like (as in Joss Whedon, script writer extradinare) in their beauty. Others have provided great lines that never get tired. As for extras, this set contains deleted scenes (very interesting), commentary by director Brian Grant for the 1st & 2nd episodes and a behind the scenes look. I highly recommend this series. It is very entertaining and stands up well under repeated viewings. I cannot wait for the second season although the creepy ending leaves me with some dread over how the series will progress......

This is a must see show! Although not a massive amount of action takes place in series one its still must see as its a kind of "set the scene" and establish a few of the important characters ready for an out and out action packed series 2 which is about to End on Sky One.
These characters are: Cassie, shy quiet and reserved untill the death of her best friend and the release of a Fallen Angel who sets out to corrupt and inpregnate her as she turns out to be a witch that desends a long line of them!
Thelma: Cassies lesbien best friend who is used as a sacrifice and then returns as a ghost as one of the best chracters of the show..seriously!
Troy: Cassies love interest...very boring undeveloped character who doesnt return in season 2.
Roxanne: The sly, sexy viper bitch with a great dress sense and a icy cool attitiude has it in for cassie after she discovers her affair with the art teacher...watch out cassie!
Gemma: Roxannes equally bitchy but airheaded best friend...i liked Gemma and wished she had more development.
David Tyrall and Jo Watkins: the main teachers of the boardin school...both a bit under-used, but this eventually changes
Leon: Undersused class joker and best friend of Troy, this very much changes in season 2..one of the best charcters along with Roxanne and Thelma!
Azazeal: the deadly fallen angel who needs cassie to have his baby so that all of his 200 Nephelim (Demonic fallen angels) can walk the earth again.
Does he succeed? Watch and find out!!!!!!! Its great!

I don't know who decided to brand this show "The British Buffy", but they were very wrong. Hex is darker, sexier and heavier on the wry humour than Buffy. Whilst both shows are equally fantastic, Hex stands out as a nice refreshing show in comparison to all the reality TV we're bombarded with these days.
I recommend this series to anyone who liked quirky shows such as As If.

A definite must see. Such a refreshing change to take a crisp bite of drama/sci.fi/mythical TV with a British accent and British sarcasm, style, intelligence, humour and gloriously sexy gothic feel in what has up to now been a monotonous (and somewhat childish) American corner of the market. Watch and learn my friends. This first series has been far superior to any other script of a similar genre with a tight plot and plenty of action to keep any one of us happy... teens to T.O.G.'s (oops! showing a crack in my youthful shell there) and for any and many a reason. The only critisism is the fact that we have to wait a year to get our teeth into the second series. A sneak into my crystal ball shows HEX deservedly taking over the prime slot of Coronation Street. ;o) Yum yum!

Okay, okay, bad pun. I reviewed this show when it first aired on Sky over a year ago and my opinion hasn't changed since. Hex is, first and foremost, a character piece. The characters of Cassie, Thelma and Azazeal are what drives the story and they aren't over-shadowed by glossy special effects. In fact, I'd say if you want an effects extravaganza, look somewhere else - what sfx are in Hex are very understated - and that adds incredibly to the impact when they are used. Azazeal's unveiling his true form is one such example.
Back to the characters, whilst Cassie and Azazeal are both fantastic and loveable (even the bad guy is likeable in this show - something I haven't seen since the Mayor in season 3 of BtVS), the true heart of the show is Thelma. She drives the story forwards at all times, even when Cassie looses her way. Her love for Cassie is the glue that binds the story together. Her passion is palpable and the acting is first rate. Thelma is a very unique - many would say bizarre - character and it would have been very easy for the wrong actress to spoil the role, but the casting here (and for all characters, especially Azazeal) is bang on and the acting always superb, especially compared to some of the dross we've been getting from across the pond (stand up "Charmed").
All in all, Hex is one of the finest pieces of genre TV ever to come out of Britain. It slipped under the radar last year, but hopefully with the triumphant return of Dr Who, it can gain a wider audience with it's second series currently airing on Sky and this much-welcomed DVD release.
