Ok so first off, I did not expect to really love this series but despite my better judgement I totally dug it. Admittedly it was this final season that hooked me and it remains a guilty pleasure. I've heard a lot of negative things said about Hex which is partly what contributed toward me never wanting to watch it. But I'm glad I finally did. I watch a lot of American genre television and I think the quality of that spoils me to an extent, but Hex is very British and it has that quirkiness to it that only British TV has. It's very refreshing to watch a British genre show and while there are a few continuity contrivances that demand a fair amount of thought, there's nothing so glaringly plot holed that taints ones enjoyment of the series. The characters are easy to become emotionally invested in and that's what the most important thing is, that you care what happens to these people. Hex succeeds in doing so which as a result makes the series all the more gratifying. The direction is wonderful and this series contains some of the best sets and artistic camera moves I've seen on television. The mood is set by the wonderfully dark and atmospheric setting which is captured with some amount of scope.

The pacing of these episodes are much quicker compared with the first season, and there's a lot more action overall. The main cast get a makeover: a new character is introduced in the first episode (Ella). Who I find to be far more interesting than Cassie. Ella is dark, interesting, unpredictable and can fight like the best of them! Leon is also brought to the forefront and undergoes a great deal of character development; which was nice to see. Thelma is as always a joy to watch, and manages to get herself into some considerably grey moral areas.

Watched this series on my Kindle so just had to buy it on DVD.... it was that good. Great tongue in cheek supernatural thriller with a great cast. Most enjoyable series.......unfortunately a change in management chopped the series so no series 3 and left you with a lot of loose ends. What a shame, could have just had one bumper bundle and finished off the story-line and put us all out of our misery! That is TV Execs for you! Enjoy it!

I was so excited when Hex came back to TV, and I was not disapointed for the first 3 Episodes. It picked up the story where it left off and ran with it.
The twists came thick and fast and I found myself thinking about where now would the story go, long after it had aired.
But then came the lull mid series, and I began to get bored. Stories and themes repeated themselves, continuity went out the window. The love triangle that kept me gripped was gone, along with major characters. The other characters had complete personality u-turns that made no sense in the short time span it was supposed to go over. I was really disapointed. They have replaced real creepyness and preying on peoples fears and imaginations, with CGI and half-wit storylines. The filming techniques have also changed, so the look of the show has also changed.
On the plus side, the ending was superb, if a little open ended. Jemima Rooper, as ever was a joy to watch. As was Christina Cole, and Michael Fassbender.
In conclusion, if you like Buffy, you will love Series 2 because it was a lot more like it. If you like British horror with lots of wit thrown in, then be prepared to sit through the bad to finally get to the good. But also have a tissue for the tears near to hand..........

I knew, right from the first time I saw the trailer for the very first episode of Hex, that it would be something special. I wasn't disappointed - the first series (6 episodes) was brilliantly written, acted (Michael Fassbender, in particular, was excellent), and was one of the darkest British TV shows ever seen. But this, the second series, far surpasses that in every way.
Bumped up to 13 episodes, this series deals with the consequences of Cassie (Christina Cole) having given birth to Azazeal's (Fassbender) baby, Malachi, and subsequently having released 200 of the Nephilim (fallen angels) upon the world. Character-wise, Cassie takes a step backwards in favour of the positively gorgeous Ella (Laura Pyper who, I have to admit, is on a par with my dream woman, Katharine Isabelle, throughout the series). Most of the old cast remain - Thelma, Azazeal, Roxanne, and a much larger role for the understated Leon. Once again, the whole series is stuffed with brilliant acting, scriptwriting, and clever twists, turns, and massive surprises. Although it gets a bit tedious towards the middle of the series, it doesn't take long before it picks up again.
The only real quibble I have is with the ending. I won't spoil it, but let's just say it's confusing. Having eventually worked it out though, it's easy to see how Hex could continue into a third series.
All in all, if you're going to buy this, you need to buy the first series to understand it fully. But I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

This season far outstrips season 1. Whilst Season 1 was ver good entertainment, it wasn't really anything new. Season 2 is in a whole different league. It explores, guilt, human weakness and the blurred line between good and evil how sometimes good can act for evil and evil can do good. It's unexpected and exciting all the way through and never stops suprising you. I'm disappointed to hear there will be no series three, there is so much potential!
