The sleepy town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey receives a new citizen after she is rescued from the ocean. Christina Nickson never knew her mother and is estranged from her father, and now finds herself in the residence of an unassuming family who have recently lost a daughter. What they don't know about Christina is something she doesn't know herself: she is the daughter of Satan. Baffled by the way strange things happen when she gets upset, Christina tries to live as normal a life as possible. When she discovers clues to her mother's identity in Point Pleasant she decides to stick around, unknowingly fulfilling a prophecy that the great war between heaven and hell will begin in the town. The war is inexorably on its way, but when it will start and what side Christina will choose when it does remain shrouded in doubt. Written by rmlohner

Outstanding series
9 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the loss of some supernatural shows, Point Pleasant is an absolute winner. The cast and plot is well thought out and was evolving at an interesting pace. It is a shame that the network decided to give it an early execution as I believe the fan base would grow as the series matured. Most people who are not into the supernatural type series (Buffy, Angel, Charmed, and etc.) probably would not like this type of show purely because of the genre. I would hope that Fox may resurrect this show if their impending release of the first season DVD sells well. That is scheduled for October 25th, 2005 and includes 5 un-aired episodes. The only problem with that is the commitments of some of the actors to new endeavors which would preclude them from re-joining the show. My only critical comment is that the location of the series being on a New Jersey shore town is pretty evident that this is a West Coast locale.
