ABCs 666 park avenue

f you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay... could be your soul.

ABC or not, this looks pretty cool.

I like the cast for it. Not sure how long it'll last but I'm hoping to give it a try.


Might be cheesy for all we know.

I hate to say it, but you can replace "666 Park Avenue" with "Fantasy Island". Being a 70s feel-good show, FI always ended well, and that's where 666 could be more interesting.

They already tried bring back Fantasy Island in 98 with Malcolm Mcdowell as Mr.Rouke. It lasted one season.

This show looks like it could be interesting, but there have been far too many duds that looked the same recently that I approach this wearily.

I was going to say that, I would love to see it back on DVD, it was very under-rated and wonderfully dark under the surface.

Sounds more like it's based on Stephen King's Needful Things.
