This show is by far the best new show of the year. Something of a cross between American Horror Story and **** Presents. While some may call it slow paced I find its pacing to be extremely suspenseful. If you a looking for a horror this won't be for you, but this show's dark suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The cast is certainly strong...[however] the formula could become awfully repetitive if the primary characters' story is augmented each week by a "B" plot regarding another resident, which is what transpires in the pilot, and doesn't prove particularly compelling.
666 Park Avenue start slow and grow every single episode. It's intriguing, well acted, charming and attractive. Definitely one of the best surprises of this fall season, the cast is great, lead by the always great Terry O'Quinn and a beautiful Vanessa L. Williams.
This show could have been what Alcatraz almost was; but instead, it was just another soap opera wrapped in a horror/thriller/mystery wrapper. The characters are flat and predictable, so much so that I ended up calling the main character just 'blond whiner' because I couldn't remember her name. The only redeeming quality was Terry O'Quinn's character, and he was grossly under used.
Not a great one.
The show is intriguing although is almost frustrating as the viewer is left at the end of the episode unsure of what is happening and whether the freak occurrences are a result of supernatural behavior, magic or some kind of science. It doesn't entice the viewer and the show may be better if all the weird stuff was taken out of it.
Maybe it's because I don't like horror movies that much. If you do like them, you may well like this show. My reaction is pretty much ho-hum, just another horror production albeit with a few interesting variations. I didn't find it interesting. It seems to be well made and well acted but it doesn't excite me enough to watch it.
