It just seems to be my lot in life to discover interesting television that nobody likes. Okay, somebody must like them, but apparently not enough for ABC to be happy.
666 Park Avenue and Last Resort caught my eye a few weeks ago. I happened to leave ABC's website running after a Castle Episode, heard the intro to 666 and was intrigued despite having previously written the show off for the over-the-top premise and villain straight out of an old radio serial. Then the same thing happened with Last Resort. I was on the phone when it started.
Neither show is really something that would normally interest me. I don't enjoy horror as a genre, I don't care for shows that focus heavily on military action and the looming threat of nuclear war. I haven't seen enough to offer a detailed commentary on either show, but 666 is more fun than frightening, and Last Resort was actually uplifting in a strange way. Perhaps I'm just odd.
They're worth checking out if you're looking for a diversion.
My arm is starting to hurt, so that's all I'll say for now.
