It's a dark and cold night and the towers of Medenham Hall loom up over the lake. The lady of the house, Rachel McBain, rushes down the staircase out into the night. She enters a stone building in the grounds where the African slaves live. In the corner, a voodoo priest is performing a sacrificial ceremony. Suddenly Julius, one of the slaves, seizes Rachel and, oozing with sexuality, lifts her gown and presses his body into hers. Rachel doesn't resist this passionate encounter, which is clearly not the first. While Julius makes love to her, Rachel watches the voodoo priest transfixed as he slashes the throat of a cockerel.
Fast forward to the present day and Medenham Hall is a very different place. Gone are the slaves and upper class residents; in their place now stand students at the sixth form boarding school. The majority of the students belong to "The Crowd", except two clear outsiders: Cassie and her best friend Thelma. Thelma is an outsider for a very clear reason: she is a lesbian with a crush on Cassie, however the reasons behind Cassie's exclusion are vague - somehow she is just different. Despite this, Cassie longs to be part of The Crowd, especially to be close to one person - Troy.
But Cassie's chances with Troy are slim, and look even slimmer when she overhears his occasional girlfriend Gemma brag that only she is allowed to sleep with Troy - and he has fully agreed to the pact. Finding somewhere to clear her head in the school's grounds, Cassie lights a cigarette and leans back against a wall, knocking something out. Cassie stoops to discover what she has found: it's something that will change her life forever.
What has Cassie discovered? Will she ever get the guy? Or will Thelma succeed in taking their friendship to the next level?
What you think?
I`ve seen the trailers dark & moody reminds me a lil bit of Buffy but....
I think it has me mildly interestd
This show is being hailed as the next "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". I'm anxious to see if they'll be airing it here in America at some point. I'd love to see this show.
Let us know how you like it starts to air.
My Arse !!!
I have no idea how they can even claim that.
I so expected to like this show but...
It`s so bloody slow.
It took all of 1hr & 45 mins to find out NOTHING.
Oh except that lesbians have absolutly no dress sence, at least not in this show anyways.
All I could think was if this gets exported people are going to think us brits are bloody weird tramps. ??
There was no action except for when Cassie was being molested by a rather up for it Leon who wanted to do the Horizontal Limbo with her right there in the ald back alley to the club so Cassie looks all meanacing at an overhead light does the telekenetic hoodoo stuff & WOW it sparks & the lights go out...WHOOHOO !!
Oh & a wicker bird burst into flame...Ooooooo!!
Betcha scared now eh?
I have to say that Cassie (Christina Cole) is a saving grace cause she is FIT & you do get to see her in her knickers & bra with Thelma straddled across her...
Hmmm & I said I didn`t like this show?
All I took away from this first episode was a bunch of kewl kidz hang out, watch porn shag each other & drink themselves silly. While a shy gurl want`s into the kewl crowd but has a lesbian friend some telekenetic powers & a freak out to get her.
The end might just have interesed me enough to watch the next ep but...
So far HEX is BOLLOX !!!
