Tag: 666 Park Avenue (1-3 of 3)
One month ago, Homeland and Modern Family were named Best Drama and Best Comedy at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards. Their crowning ushered in the 2012 fall TV season, an exciting new beginning filled with surprising triumphs and unsurprising failures. (Made in Jersey and Animal Practice, we hardly knew ye!)
It’s too early to tell whether any of the networks’ shiny new shows will dethrone Homeland or ModFam at next year’s Emmys. Still, we’ve seen enough of them to know which ones are live-watch musts, which deserve a spot on the DVR… and which should follow CBS’s legal drama and NBC’s monkey comedy to an early grave.
For now, though, let’s keep things positive. Which of the following new shows is your favorite one of all? Vote in the poll below — and explain yourself in the comments.
Most New Yorkers would sell their souls for a great apartment — especially if there’s always a parking place right in front of the building when you need it. But there’s more to the new supernatural ABC drama 666 Park Avenue. A quick recap: In the premiere, we learned that Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable) are an unwed couple who came to New York City because Henry got a job working in the mayor’s city planning office and Jane was supposed to start at an architectural firm but the position fell through. Looking for a new apartment, they stumbled onto a job listing for resident manager of The Drake (actual address, 999 Park Avenue), a beautiful building built in 1923. Because of Jane’s degrees in architecture and historical preservation (and their ambition), they are hired by the building’s mysterious owner, Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn). Gavin’s married to Olivia (Vanessa Williams), who seems to be fully aware that her husband brokers deals for people’s souls but also appears to have a bit of her own intact. (She looked genuinely sad when she told Jane she had a daughter who died in a car crash a long time ago). READ FULL STORY
