TV show description:
This TV series is a reimagining of the classic story and the CBS 1987-90 drama of the same name.

Homicide detective Catherine “Cat” Chandler (Kristin Kreuk) is a smart, no-nonsense woman who is haunted by her own tragic past. As a teenager, Cat witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Young Cat would have been killed as well but someone — or some thing — saved her. No one believed her but she knows that it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins. Though her savior was strange and terrifying, it was also human.

Years have passed, and although she thinks about her mother every day, Cat is a strong and capable police detective. She works alongside an equally talented partner, Tess Vargas (Nina Lisandrello). The two ladies make a good team, and have become close friends. They’ve worked on countless homicide cases together, under the supervision of their tough-but-fair boss, Joe Bishop (Brian White).

Cat has also become close with medical examiner Evan Marks (Max Brown). They’ve developed a fun and flirtatious relationship that could easily turn into something deeper — if Cat would let that happen. However, as her younger sister Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson) has observed, Cat’s romantic inclinations tend toward bad boys.

While investigating a new case, Cat and Tess discover fingerprints that lead them to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan). He was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Digging deeper, Cat learns that Vincent is still very much alive. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years.

With the help of his childhood friend, J.T. Forbes (Austin Basis), Vincent has been able to guard his terrible secret — when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, who’s unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Cat is stunned when Vincent admits that he was the “animal” who saved her on the night of her mother’s murder. Vincent doesn’t admit the whole truth however. He is emotionally tied to Cat and has been watching over her since that night.

Cat agrees to protect Vincent’s identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother’s murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Cat and Vincent, who understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them. Cat’s secret obsession with Vincent puts a strain on her relationship with everyone else around her, and Tess is especially troubled by the feeling that Cat is keeping something from her.

Vincent soon becomes a secret but important part of Cat’s detective work. During the years that he’s spent hiding in the shadows, watching over Cat and other innocents, Vincent has learned a lot about the darkest parts of the city and its residents. His sharpened instincts, incredible strength and human compassion become invaluable to Cat as she works to bring criminals to justice.

As she slowly comes to terms with Vincent’s monstrous alter-ego, Cat senses that she can trust him in ways she hasn’t been able to trust any other man. Despite the obstacles between them, she realizes that she’s safer with him than anywhere else.

Beauty and the Beast is fantastic – wonderful cast, great characters, well written storyline, well acted, well directed. Brillant fight scenes/action scenes and heart stopping romance – what a combination. It must get a second series – it has such great potential!PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL it…

This is a well-written, very well produced program. The story arcs could be better, but they will be if CW makes the right decision and brings this one back. It’s sad, but CW doesn’t care if the show is any good, they care only about the numbers — if the numbers aren’t there, then the show just isn’t good enough.

I have to admit that the show started off slow – but the story line and the writing seem to have improved immensely. The chemistry that’s been developed between Cat and Vincent is really strong. The plot line has gotten way better too because all the characters are being fleshed out. This is one show that is improving with time – please give it another season.

I LOVE the Beauty and the Beast remake. Never miss an episode. Please renew this show. I was also a fan of the ’80′s series. The Beauty and the Beast remake needs a second season. Do not take away one of the best shows on TV.

Luv the show. Can’t wait to see what develops next season. Love the chemistry between Katherine ad Vincent. I would like to see Tess reconcile with Kat. I’d like to see Kat’s sister Heather written out of the storyline. She’s winy and annoying and serves no purpose in the show other than Kat’s enemy.

I LOVE Beauty and the Beast! As a devoted fan of the original show, this is a real treat to have the story revived in a clever updated way. The writing and acting have gotten better with each episode and I am hooked. I can’t wait for each Thursday (and re-runs on Tuesdays). I record each episode and watch it throughout the week. Please don’t cancel it!!!

Love the show. Please do not cancel. But, if you do, give us an ending. Good or bad, just end the story and don’t leave us hanging.
