5.0 out of 5 stars Starts slow and somewhere gets creepy, 22 Jan 2007
This review is from: Point Pleasant: The Complete Series [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I didnt expect such a well made series when I started seeing "Point Pleasant".

It start as a typical teenage drama with "suble hints"(cough) pointing mystical powers . You clearly notice that the series was intended to last longer than 1 season because lots and lots of characters are introduced but never really "filled out".

The series somehow reminded myself on "Carrie 1+2" simply in a longer version.

Teenager fights its dark heritage, tries to make friends or even find love and people who accept her.

For some time it looks like she is winning against her dark side but all starts to slip away and the all people around her betray her or leave her alone.

I dont know why people want to compare this series to Buffy. But if you like supernatural series like Hex, Buffy, Angel, Roswell, Witchblade for example. I think there is a good chance you will like "Point Pleasant" too.

I really enjoyed this series. Sadly this series was axed before it had a chance to really show its full potential. (Fox seems to have a tendency to invest in great series "Firefly" etc. screw up the potential in sending episodes out of order (5 chapters of point pleaseant where never shown on tv) and then axe the series in midrun of the first season. The show never had a chance (Even Buffy got really succesful in the 2nd season and the first season was really bad)

What is left is the beginning of a great series. (The writer still did a good job of giving the series a good finish in the limited space they had)

Thank you for a good review of Point Pleasant.

However, I have to comment on your passing reference to the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer being "really bad".

Nonsense, the first and last episodess of Season 1 are amongst the best they ever made. The episode Nightmares is remarkable as the only time Buffy was shown as a vampire and the revelation a few episodes in of Angel's true nature is one of the biggest revelations the show ever managed. And the clever dialogue that is a marked feature of Buffy's best episodes is already apparent.
