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. 🙂
