Alright, until the end of this show’s season, Mondays are dedicated to my reviews of the new show 666 Park Avenue. Guys, I am OBSESSED with this frickin’ show. Have you seen it?!?!?!?!?!? It’s only four episodes in, if you live in Canada you can watch all four full episodes on the CityTv site. Okay – here’s the show synopsis as per IMDB:
If you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay… could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Owned by the mysterious Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn – Lost) and his sexy wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams – Desperate Housewives), The Drake is home to dozens of residents who are unaware they’re living in the dark embrace of supernatural forces. They think their dreams are all coming true, only to find they’ve been lured into making, what feels like, a deal with the Devil. When a young Mid-western couple – Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor – Charlie’s Angels, Grey’s Anatomy) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable – Brothers & Sisters) – is hired to manage The Drake, they soon discover that evil, obsession, and manipulation has a home.
Now, a bunch of things have happened with some secondary characters and which you will find out but I’m going to start these reviews with Episode #5 because that’s how I do and I hope someone out there tunes in so we can have some discussions because DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DAMN, the show is hot! Here’s some things you need to pay attention to:
The fineness that is Terry O’Quinn. He is an older gentleman but ladies and gents, he has a sexiness that will not quit. He plays Gavin Doran (the owner of The Drake) and is he evil? Is he Satan? What’s his deal? How does he make these things happen?
Ms. Vanessa Williams plays his wife, Olivia. Oh yessir, yes ma’am – we’ve got an older interracial, wealthy couple doing the damn thing on network tv, so you know I’m ’bout it-’bout it. I’m basically pretending I’m always Olivia and you’ll see why when you see her clothing and the way she side-eyes like the Creator of suspicion. Love her to bits.
Rachael Taylor, plays Jane Van Der Veen & Dave Annable plays her boyfriend, Henry. He’s so beautiful and a totally stand-up guy and just wants to get into politics. There’s a lot going on there and I will not spoil it in case you do actually tune in. Anyways, Gavin is totally testing them for some reason but there’s nothing but supernatural, make-you-jump-then-laugh-at-yourself bidness going on all over The Drake. Rachael is not working but she has all these degrees in historical architecture and she really takes a shine to restoring The Drake. She finds a secret room, things go bump in the night and you’ll legitimately get a little fright from time to time. But trust me, it’s totally worth.
Now, Jane has found this suitcase in the hidden room (that was OBVIOUSLY blocked for a reason) and lord knows why the hell she kept this evil thing in her home but now the black smoke that came out of it has manifested itself into some man in a suit that’s standing at the end of her bed and sh!t’s about to get really real. Why do these crazy white folk always disturb the undead and get surprised when evil overtakes them? *single blink* Stop. Searching. For. Answers. And. Run. Away. Oh, Hollywood…you make me happy!
Episode #5 will air on Sunday, October 28, 2012, that’s this coming Sunday so catch the hell up because Monday, I’m taking y’all to school. Make it a build-up to your Hallowe’en weekend!
EEEEEEK! I’m so excited for you guys to be a part of this. And if you aren’t – sucks to be you.
