If all of that sounds pretty tame, that's Point Pleasant's principal problem: good premise, less than stellar execution. The show looks great, including the actors; the teens all appear to have stepped out of a Gap commercial, and the grownups are model-beautiful too. But their acting isn't nearly as hot as they are. Same goes for the dialogue (ten episodes in, people are still saying things like "This may sound crazy, but "). And the special effects. And the excruciatingly slow pace of the story development. Most of all, even though the body count and the fear factor rise in the last few episodes, Point Pleasant (which was co-created by former Buffy writer-producer Marti Noxon) just isnt scary enough. In trying to be titillating and concentrating so much on the characters' various personal problems, even those brought to light by Christina's appearance, the producers seem to have forgotten that when the Devil comes to town and the apocalypse is at hand, mere melodrama just won't cut it. In the end, those looking for genuine thrills have any number of other series and films to turn to. On the other hand, if a supernatural soap opera sounds like your cup of karma, then Point Pleasant is for you. The box set includes a "making of" featurette as well as the 13 episodes. --Sam Graham

I really liked this show and wish it had continued, I hate to be left hanging the way that it ended so that's why I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars.Published 22 months ago by Jeff
