GET REAL! the DEVIL vs Christians... COME on! funny how christians are not up set about this show. its the DEVIL! ABC is promoting the devil but not christian women in their full bitchness???? WEM 666 park Ave SHOW sucks! the Bald lead is NOT believable .... IF you can air 666 you BRING BACK GCB! 666 Park Ave. SHOW SUCKS GCB WAS BETTER!!! funnier! bring back CAMPY GCB!!!!
I saw the pilot with mixed expectations and unfortunately it was a let down. The premise being similar to that of Rosemary's Baby - one of the greatest horror stories ever told. In 666, a young couple move into an old building owned by satanic landlords who lead a double life.
The episode had the feel of one of X-Files' duds. Very predictable, immature and passionless - Terry O'Quinn whom I was eager to see again, was clearly not committing fully.
The only reason I keep coming back to the show is that I truly enjoy Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams, they exude power, charm and mystery. I don't care for 'the resident of the week', we don't get to know them so why care how they end up? Rachael Taylor really annoys me and it's hard to like her character. The rest of the cast is just very bland.
The pilot was a little weak with some plagiarism to the movie ''Rosemary's Baby'' and even to the old and little known canadian series "The Colector". But it has evolved into something more, with some originality amid very exploited routines of mystery movies.
The actors are not bad, except for Mr. ''Odette Yustman Anable'' (by Zeus, what she saw is this poor devil?) and that playwright of only one piece and two babes.
By the way, Helena Mattsonn easily would lead a legion of locals to hell.
Just when I had all my friends hooked, you cancel the show. So much crap on TV this was fun, interesting, kept your interest, and scary as well. Sorry you cancelled and hope it comes back soon. It was a bad decision to cancel.
I liked it! I was told one of the national newspapers panned it, but I wanted to judge for myself. Absurd? Sure. Nowhere near as excellent as Rosemary's Baby? For sure. But fun, nonetheless. I am genuinely looking forward to see what happens next. I hope ABC doesn't cancel it too soon!
But according to Wikipedia "On November 21, 2012, it was announced that producers had been given enough notice of the show's cancellation that they were reworking the final episode to function as a series finale and give the fans closure.."
I have come to like this show very much, it has a slowly building atmosphere and environment just like classic horror films, the characters have depth and are very well portrayed by the cast, and there's a touch of hysteria and madness in every episode that reminds me a little bit of Hitchcock. You see the things happening and how they affect the people in the building, yet the viewer always knows they are deliberately being driven to madness, so they can perform the actions the Dorans need them to. I like how the elements of the plot are gradually revealed, for instance in this last episode (Diabolic) we are finally beginning to get an idea of the battle of Good vs Evil that apparently will be culminating in the rest of the season. Finally, the horror scenes with the appropriate music, lighting and excellent direction are very satisfying to us classic horror fans. I hope it gets a full-season pickup and that there's lots more of it to come! Great show
it's not complicated, what i like about shows I watch - If i wanted to see complicated stuff, i'd see a movie. It's triller enough to keep me uptight, but na scary stuff to keep me from falling asleap. I think they've found a good combination of it all, ao keep up with it.
The pilot was fairly slow and shallow. It's not a horror movie or even scary, more mystery genre. However, I kind of liked it, I want to know more about the building, the dragon mosaic and G.Doran (DraGon).
Btw. the mosaic looks like a sketch of the constellation "Draco", which lies above the latitude of 66.6 degrees. And the Bible says: "Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world - he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him." [Rev 12:7-9]
Now it all depends on how long it will take to bring the tension up and if it will stay that slow. If they need 8 episodes for Jane to find out what is going on and another 8 episodes until someone believes her, I'm out long before. But the pilot got me interested and I hope for the best.
Pretty good follow-up episode with some intriguing moments, e.g. a nest of birds flying out of the wall, girl thief having a horrible vision of what's going to happen next, and of course that crazy ending! I can't wait to find out what happens next after that door slams shut, and I certainly hope it will not turn out to be a cop-out, like Jane waking up from another one of her dream!
just don't know for how long i will like it. I want to know about the past of the building, who is that mary woman. And whats up with my hate character the phycic Laurel Harris. I just don't like her, weirdo..
How long will it take for Henry to not dismiss every weird feeling Alexis has "oww thats just the stress honny" blah blah. And if one of them is going the have a contract with Doran and its going to be a secret between this couple and takes to long to come out, then its time for me to stop watching. Sure i think Henry is going to be the one to make the mistake of sining a contract. Probably for a big carreer jump maybe to become the next mayor?
I hope this couple is going to be a strong one, figthing together for their lifes and the other residents from the Dorans.
I agree with "Bring It Back!" I wish a petition would work, but when the network execs. make up their minds about programs it s gone. Its all about the money. Never mind its being recorded to watch at a later time or even on ABC in Demand where you have to watch the commercials to watch the program. Every time I get hooked it gets pulled!
I knew the show didn't get signed on for another season but I was also under the impression that they would wrap up the show to the viewers satisfaction !! I absolutely hate it when a good show is abruptly cut off. So much potential!!
A typical ghost story with lots of twist and turns which sometime make you think...kind of slow in the begging but is starting to pick-up the pace and I hope this will continue from here on out :D :D :D
A suprisingly good pilot, although my rating is still temporary I am looking forward to the next episode. It is a mix of the movie Devils advocat and of supernatural (demon deals). Hope next episode continues the good work.
It is hard to find a horror based television show these days that doesn't try for the pathetically quirk - not at all funny - girl next door crap. The interwoven story lines in '666 Park Avenue' are well written and for television, the acting is pretty impressive.
Everything about this show is above the board, yet after one season ABC decides to replace it with two cheesy, mindless comedies. Typical. Hopefully another network realises the potential in this show and picks it back up and doesn't just let it die like TV greats, 'Freaks and Geeks' and 'Carnivale'.
