I thought this series was done well. It has six episodes. I’m surprised it wasn’t picked up for a second season. And I’m not understanding the haters. I’m watching it seven years after its original broadcast, and it’s as good or better than anything I’ve seen lately.

I was skeptical about watching this show after seeing the comments, but I am glad I did because I really enjoyed it. It is a good show with a good story, and I wish there were more seasons.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Season one of The Fades is a horror story of a battle between the living and the dead. People who die and do not ascend (the fades) are trapped on Earth and become angry and bitter. With the help of their leader the fades begin to regain a physical presence on Earth and plan to take over. Special people (the angelics) are the only ones able to see and fight the fades in an intense and brutal battle for control of Earth. There are six episodes in the series. The Fades has a good story line and excellent special effects. Unfortunately the series was cancelled after only one season.

it's a strange show, and definately one of the weirdest show i've ever seen. A bit too short, too many loose end, hoping for another season soon.

So-so series. It's okay for a lazy-do-nothing day.

Terrible and very lame. I could not find one redeeming aspect of this series to save it. I absolutely detested the characters Paul and Mac. I found the dialogue between them completely stupid and even their personalities. Paul was the worst of the lot; irritating in all ways possible. It tells you a lot about a film and series when you just don't care about the main characters. In the case of this particular series, I am actually hoping for Paul's early demise.

This show was absolutely fantastic! I was able to watch it as it came out in the UK. I'm hoping that word spreads about this series because it's seriously that good. I'm hoping to hear soon if there will be a second series as well. No word yet, but here's to hoping!
