The Fades is a terrific original series that I couldn't wait to see each week.
Thankfully it's a UK produced show so, even though the first season ended in a nicely rounded off manner, we were still left with the possibility of a return next year. Unlike the American produced quality programs which seem to get cancelled on the whim of some executive who decides that he doesn't like it, so no-one will.
The Fades isn't expensively made, it doesn't feature established stars and it doesn't run for more than the usual (UK) 6 episodes, but it's quality.
We have Mr Joe Belowaverage (Paul) thrust into the unfamiliar realm of Fades; ghosts of people who have died and not ascended and Angelics; living people who have the ability to see Fades and interact with them.
Paul, very ably supported by his best mate and wing-man Mac, finds out that he's also an Angelic just at the time where the Fades (royally pissed off because they haven't been able to ascend) decide it's time to hit back.
There's a well balanced mix of surprises, thrills, horror, humour, and pathos with this series and I can't wait for Season 2.
I highly recommend it and guarantee you will too if you watch more than one episode.
