'The Fades' review: Young people meet the dead

A nerdy teen has apocalyptic visions in a BBC America series created by Jack Thorne, and it works.

We've met them before, in many places: Mac is the Virgin Who Can't Stop Talking About Sex; Paul is the Guy Who Would Be Hunky If He'd Only Stand Up Straight.,0,6255691.story
