The Fades

I’ve been watching THE FADES, a BBC America show. Very few times does a show start out as one thing and turn into something completely different, while maintaining the same quality of storytelling. I haven’t seen writing like this since Joss Whedon’s shows. The characterization is strong, the acting solid, and the twists are breathtaking. It’s like ‘watching’ a master writing class unfold before your eyes.

A second season hasn’t been announced yet. I am keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that it gets another go because TV shows like this are rare indeed.

Now I’m off to type in the edits on Phantom Warriors: Arctos, while my subconscious works on how to take my writing to a Fades kind of level. 🙂

  2. Bernard, You’re going to love it. 🙂

    Yeah, I’m still typing. Only forty something pages to go. Woo…Sigh.

  3. You’re right–THE FADES is incredible! Thanks for telling me about it. I’m completely sucked into the series. And congrats on getting another PW out there. You’re on fire! 🙂

  4. Julie, Yeah, I’m getting ready to watch the final episode. Man, I hope they give this show another season. It’ll suck if they don’t.

    Thank you!!! Doing a final edit now that I’m over whatever bug hit me on Friday. With any luck, PW will be formatted and uploaded tomorrow.
