I saw the original. This just wasn't up to that level. Vincent of the 80's was more beastly and believable. And Lana Lang as a hardened cop? Pulease! I kept waiting for Superman to save her! The original Catherine Chandler was attacked and left for dead. Vincent found her and saved her by giving her some of his blood. It made them have a bond where he could sense when she was scared or in danger. This Beast has kept up with this Catherine like a stalker, Creepy!
I only watched because Grey's wasn't on this week. However, I'm glad I did. Though I'm still 50/50 and the show COULD have a chance to continue, I'll have to DVR it to keep up as Grey's is much more of a prominent show for me.
Wow. So, we finally found somebody who doesn't think this show sucks horrendously.
Plus it's more or less tacit advocacy of sticking in abusive relationships. Beast ain't a hideous monster who really has a heart of gold, he's an Abercrombie & Fitch model with (horror of horrors!) a scar. Who's an asshole. But don't worry ladies, if you stick with your asshole boyfriend through thick and thin you just might discover the heart of gold!
And also Kristen Kreuk's character backstory is pretty much ripped holly from Kate Beckett's. For the love of god, their names are even pretty much the same!
Okay - we're all entitled to our opinion, right? Okay...
I actually can't believe that we were watching the same show. I thought this was awful.
The beast is gorgeous even when he's in beast mode. There's no real conflict if there's nothing repelling Beauty and "Beast" from each other, no uncertainty, no repulsion. Hell, she's already in love. The dialogue was laughable. Mom: "You're lucky I was on call!" Lana: "It's not luck. you always come running when I call." SERIOUSLY?
Jay Ryan is wooden, and Kreuk isn't even close to convincing as a tough New York City cop. Oh - and New York City? I'm from Toronto...that was Toronto. They didn't even try to make it look like New York.
Oh - and best part. You're a pre-law student turned cop...and you run away from an oncoming train IN THE SAME DIRECTION OF THE TRAIN?
... Are you both being paid by cw? One of the worst things I've ever seen, and that includes two broke girls
A really decent series preimiere and over-all episode. Who knew Kristen could be funnny. Overall really good. I think i might keep tuning in.
