666 Park Avenue Season 1 “Hypnos” Review

When we left  666 Park Avenue  last week, Jane (Rachael Taylor) had arrived at the door of Maris Elder (guest star Whoopie Goldberg) looking for some help about her issues with The Drake  and why/how she wound up in the psych ward after her trip down the rabbit hole . Goldberg plays what appears to be a watered down version of her character from  Ghost , and actually zaps Jane back to October of 1927 where the poor girl is sent to figure out the dark secrets of The Drake and how her family ties into the history. Once back in time, Jane discovers some crazy secrets about the murder of Peter Kramer’s wife in his Drake apartment and also finds out that her family has been tied to  666 Park Avenue  for longer than Jane really cares to know. Not only has she been to The Drake before, but her past is sort of intertwined with the history of The Drake itself… and not in a great way. Read More... //

I could speculate about this place for hours if given the chance. After Jane’s trip through Time Square where she yells for Henry the entire time, she wakes up in the hospital  looking awful. Henry visits and while Jane begs him to take her home, he explains that she has to stay there to get better, and watches as Jane has a flashback of being restrained and wonders if Jane has the samemental illness  that her grandmother suffered from.

666 Park Avenue Review: You Can't Leave the Drake

For a show that's all about high class and high scares, sometimes I wonder if the glossy feel of 666 Park Avenue makes it hard to get beyond the pretty sights and really send some shivers down your spine. Don't get me wrong, the characters are all likable in their own respects. Take a simple scene like Brian and Henry jogging together and you've already got a great bromance brewing because of their charisma and personalities. I couldn't help but laugh when Brian said congratulations with that "whoops" face after he told Henry not to get married. Read More... //

666 Park Avenue Review: What's In the Box?

Who (or what) is Gavin Doran? There's certainly a human side to him as evident with his love for Olivia, but its easy to forget all the nasty, scary things that seem to surround him with every move he makes. He's fantastic at manipulating people and getting people to do things for him. He's content in getting rid of anyone that gets in his way. It's even been suggested (metaphorically?) that he's a monster beneath the perfectly tailored suits. Read More... //

666 Park Avenue Season 1 “Diabolic” Review – The Red Box-O-Doom

666 Park Avenue  delivered a strong episode with "Diabolic", and made me realize that I actually care about the characters on this show way more than I thought. While  666 Park Avenue  struggled for a bit to find out if it wanted to be a horror show , supernatural, or suspense; but I feel that it has finally found the right path which is pretty much a mixture of all three. In "Diabolic" we get to see a little bit more of the characters that we’ve seen throughout the series  – and we’re left wondering just who (or what) is Gavin exactly? Read More.... //
