The Fades Season One Blu-ray review
Sort of a British “Supernatural,” the Fades follows awkward teen Paul Roberts (Ian deCaestecker), who discovers he can see spirits trapped on earth. Known as “The Fades,” these ghostly beings plan an apocalypse that only Paul and his best friend Mac (Daniel Kaluuya) can prevent.
Paul and Mac are nerds in the classic sense, referencing Neil Gaiman and George Lucas. So perhaps it’s appropriate that they’re drawn into a supernatural world that’s part “Harry Potter” and part “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
As it turns out, Paul’s a bit of a chosen one — he has the power of the Angelics, people who can see and combat the growing evil of the zombie-like ghosts. Like Voldemort, the Fades draw energy from the living to get their apocalypse started. Like zombies in “The Walking Dead,” the way they get that energy is the ingestion of blood and flesh. As you can tell, “The Fades” is aware it’s drawing from all over pop culture, but it’s fairly entertaining in doing so.
