Guess Which Show Has a Smoke Monster Now? (666 Park Avenue)

This episode was a small improvement over last week. It was weird at the end when we were rooting for Henry to make nice with the Devil. Once again, too bad the audience knows this guy is the Devil. We're glad Annie was alive in the beginning of the episode. Her story wasn't over. The stuff with Henry's bosses being against Gavin was getting old, so it's good that's over now. We were interested in Nona earlier, and that hasn't changed. She has some mute, catatonic grandmother, a stealing problem, and she's psychic. She's actually sympathetic too, which is what this show needs.

We're glad Henry shows backbone and tries to do the right thing. Now he needs to act honorable in a way that will touch our hearts a little. That's what's going to make us care about him. Hopefully the show writers know that. If we had cared about Annie before she got shot in the face, rather than just thinking she was a dimwitted, annoying liar, that death would have been good. Having some action at that party was a good idea though. It was also nice not to see that awful, weakling playwrite.

Jane needs to realize this place is haunted or at least report the creepy little girl roaming around her apartment. There's no in-between there. Either it's real, you're crazy, or it's haunted. C.S. Lewis's Narnia books taught us that (in completely different words, of course). We found out what's inside the suitcase. A smoke monster that sometimes turns into a man. Is it sad that we loved LOST so much that this actually makes us excited? The guy he morphs into looks appropriately evil too. Good casting.

We don't care about anyone on this show, but it isn't boring, so we're still watching. We're starting to lose hope that it will stay on the air or become one of our favorites though.
Episode grade: B-
