Point Pleasant Revisited
Remember this? Way back in 2005, a lifetime ago, I blogged about the short-lived supernatural drama regarding Satan's hot daughter and her struggle against a dark destiny. I recently caught the full 13 episode run during a marathon on Chiller -- really need to get out more. Anyway, it came across much campier than I remembered, much of it intentional. I now see how the show's creators could've played it safe and went with the typical vanilla drama, but they tried something different. Much belated props for that.
Near the end, Christina was acting like a Buffy villain, with the quips and everything! In case you're curious, nothing monumental happens in the finale. Christina goes over to the dark side, but she still has a sliver of good somewhere inside -- at least that's what some characters would like to believe. Ah, closure. Now I have one less thing to wonder about... is it time for those Nicholl's emails yet?
