This is the story of Christina Nickson, a beautiful and angelic looking girl who is found floating in the sea and is rescued by Jesse, the local lifeguard. As Christina spends time in Point Pleasant we soon find out that she is the "Child of Darkness", her father is the Devil and it's his plan that she wreaks havoc on the unsuspecting people of the town. Her presence causes inner and negative emotions in the townspeople to erupt and the introduction of Boyd, the right hand man of the devil worstens things for them.
After watching great shows like Buffy, Angel and Tru Calling I was waiting for something to take it's place and Point Pleasant actually did that for me. Marti Nixon one of the writers and Executive Producers of Buffy also worked on Point Pleasant and this is very clear in some of it's themes and characters. Christina represents the light and the dark, the good and the evil in all of us as she is a metaphor of the inner struggle within us humans. As her mum was a church abiding innocent girl and her father is the devil, it is for her to choose to be evil or good. Like Buffy she also represents what it is to be a teenager trying to find her way in this big bad wide world.
The relationship between Christina and Jesse parellels that of Buffy and Angel's, in the sense that they are two tragic lovers, one a symbol of goodness, whislt the other is the extreme opposite, yet they still love each other and try and overcome it. The season finale is unbelievably good and it drums in that message that religion doesn't solely exist in what a church or a mosque preaches to us, it also lies inside us.
I think it's a pity it was cancelled as too many great shows are like Tru Calling, but I am happy it ended with the last episode tying everything up. If you're a fan of supernatural shows like Buffy and Angel then I'd recommend you watching this!
