Point Pleasant (TV series)

Point Pleasant is a television series that first aired on the Fox Network in January 2005. It was cancelled in March 2005 due to poor ratings.

Point Pleasant boasted many of the same crew behind the scenes as Fox's other shortly withdrawn series, Tru Calling. In fact, Point Pleasant received the greenlight just three days after production ceased on Tru Calling. 13 episodes were filmed, but due to poor ratings, Fox only aired episodes 1–8 in the United States. Episodes 9–11 aired in Sweden, all episodes appeared in New Zealand on back to back weekdays in mid-2007, all episodes aired in The Netherlands in 2008 and the last two episodes are included on the DVD release.

Much of the music featured in the series was replaced for the DVD release due to licensing issues.

The show's executive producer was Marti Noxon, who worked closely with Joss Whedon for several seasons on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For this reason, Point Pleasant initially drew in many of that show's fans, but Point Pleasant had a distinct " soapy" flavor, more in the vein of shows like Melrose Place or The O.C. than Buffy. The resulting drop in viewership eventually led to the show's cancellation. However, advocates of the show point to its gothic tone, its tempered, surprisingly subtle use of special effects, and the potential of the overall plotline as solid reasons the show should have stayed on the air. The plots emphasized humanity's self-centeredness and cruelty to one another as primal reasons for evil.

, episodes of the series are being shown on the Chiller network, including the episodes never aired on Fox.

Point Pleasant (Wallsend)

Point Pleasant is part of the town of Wallsend, Tyne and Wear, England, lying between the town centre and the River Tyne.

The historic area was once the home of Wallsend Slipway & Engineering Company, which built engines for some of the most famous ships constructed on the Tyne. The site is now owned by Shepherd Offshore.

Point Pleasant Hall, was a historic mansion dating back several hundred years until most of it was demolished in the 1930s. During this demolition, an abandoned tunnel was found in the main hall which it is believed may have led to Jarrow Monastery, although this has never been substantiated. In late 2009, the one remaining wing of the old hall (subsequently known as Point Pleasant House) was demolished pending further development.

Today, Point Pleasant is made up of two streets of terraced houses and six semi-detached properties, originally built for senior staff at the Slipway.

The site of the former Point Pleasant Station, on the former Riverside Loop of the Tyneside Electric network, can still be identified. The station was closed in 1973.

Famous ex-residents include Charlie Hardwick (born Claire Elizabeth Hardwick; 3 November 1960)[2]an English actress well known for her part in ITV's Emmerdale as Val Pollard.
