One Million Moms will not be happy until every television program on the air is either turned into The Bible Hour or everything is taken off the air. Their latest gripe is with ABC’s new series 666 Park Avenue. What does OMM have to say about the show?
The producers of “Gossip Girls” and “Pretty Little Liars” bring viewers “666 Park Avenue” set to premiere later this fall. The satanic and demonic series is described on ABC’s website as a mix between “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Shining.”
To paraphrase the description of the program given on ABC’s website: The show is about a young couple who find what they think to be an amazing apartment when in fact it is haunted. Those who live in the building seduce others to get what they need and want. But how far will they go to get what they want? The finest living in the city comes at a cost.
ABC website also describes the apartment building as a wicked, dangerous power, and the owner of the building as a dark power.
The owner of the apartment building in the show portrays characteristics of the devil himself. Previews include terrifying screams, death, spirits, satanic symbols, and souls bought for a price. It premieres Sunday, September 30 on ABC (Disney owned) at 10:00 pm ET/ 9:00 pm CT.
What would you do to have everything you desire? Step inside 666 Park Avenue, New York’s most seductive address. We all have some burning needs, desires and ambitions. For the residents of The Drake, the premier apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, these will all be met – for a price – courtesy of the building’s mysterious owner, Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn). But be careful what you wish for, because the price you have to pay is your soul. ABC’s wickedly sensual, sexy and spine-tingling new drama about fulfilling our deepest desires, 666 Park Avenue, will air Sundays from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET.
When Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable), an idealistic young couple from the Midwest, arrive in New York City, the glamorous center of industry and media, they are offered the opportunity to manage the historic Drake. Jane, a small town girl with big ambitions, always knew she wanted to be an architect. Henry, a member of the Mayor’s staff, is grounded, intelligent and tenacious. They are lured by the intoxicating lifestyle of New York’s wealthy elite.
Gavin, who has many skeletons in his own closet, is at the height of his world and commands the dark power of The Drake. Olivia (Vanessa Williams), his beautiful but enigmatic, supportive wife, wears her elegance, wealth and position in society as armor… but cracks will slowly be revealed.
Sigh…have you ever felt like OMM would love to go back to the days of the Inquisition when theocracy ruled the land and the Church could kill anyone they wanted to?
The author/artist of Girls With Slingshots, Danielle Corsetto, explained recently in a post about how one of her gay characters seems like a walking stereotype (the series has four LGBT characters on a regular basis- three lesbians and a gay man and I don’t think that the gay character is great). She explained:
I tried to write novels when I was in high school, but I never got past a single Chapter One. I would get bored too easily and give up. It took me years to realize that I was bored because my characters were perfect, and everything they did was perfect. It felt good to write about people and situations that were better (in my mind) than myself and my own, as a release, but the plots went nowhere and I couldn’t get into the characters’ heads.
Basically, OMM wants characters that meet their version of perfect. If that was what people did, it would never get watchers. Honestly, perfect characters are just boring.
