Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 2/1/05
I really enjoy this show. It is creepy and dark, but it's also a fun
soap opera. It steals from all the great horror movies about the devil
that I watched growing up, such as The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby and The Omen.
It is also reminiscent of Beverly Hills 90210, Peyton Place, Dark Shadows, and
American Gothic. It does a good job of combining horror fantasy and soap
I missed the first episode, but I had no trouble catching up for the second
and third episodes. The main character is a girl who comes to a small New
England town. Bad things start to happen after she arrives. She
thinks she is bad luck, but she doesn't know why. We learn with her that
she is Satan's daughter. She is a confused teen who isn't sure if she
should choose good or evil. In some ways it's a classic teen drama because
she doesn't want to follow in her father's footsteps (her father just happens to
be the devil).
There are many former daytime stars in the show, along with Grant Show from
Melrose Place. I really like the cast and how well they work together.
The show moves along at a good place and it's pure escapist entertainment.
Although the show is aimed at teens, "old" people like me should enjoy it, too.
Check it out, Wednesday nights on FOX after The O.C.
