    Hard to believe anyone would not like B&TB. Even harder to think people want others to lose their favorite shows. Don’t watch if it’s that bad or not the subject matter you enjoy, but don’t act like your opinion is better than the fan’s. Great show, great fans . When it does get cancelled it won’t be Jay and Kristin’s fault. Keep up the good work. We really do love it.

    I´m from Slovakia and I love this show! We have only season one in tv here, but I watched the whole season two online. This show absolutely deserves a third season. Unfortunately the writers forgot the essence of the show in season two a little bit. They have the BEST onscreen chemistry and they are not using it at all! I know that TVD fans with Damon and Elena chemistry won´t agree with me. But be honest, where else did you seen the characters kissing each other so realisticly as Vincent and Cat in season one?! Bring back the writers of season one and you will have much more viewers than 1.6 mil.

        You know bulling is the last desperate act of the weak. I’m sorry they took your show off the air, but just get over it. Beauty and the Beast is the best show on the CW.

          • Me says

            What is your problem, actually? How many episodes have you watched from this ‘horrible’ show to start hating it? Such deep feelings for a show???? Do you know that this show is one of the most sold shows internationally. And to disappoint you even more, the show has much more fans that you can imagine.

    Interesting comments, some of which are made by people who really haven’t been watching it. It IS a love story between Cat & Vincent who both kick ass to save each other. Their two sidekicks, Tess & JT have very much been a part of the story. Glad it was renewed for a 3rd season. I love it! Based on spoilers, Cat & Vincent will grow as a couple, along with their friends and other characters. Keep watching!

    Like all shows, BATB have great/good/blah/bad episodes. But overall the show is good. I think they became aware that the show needed new life … the storylines were going too long and they gave us just what we needed with the final episodes for this season. It will be interesting to see how they bring us Season 3 … with the closing plots from Season 2 as a spring board. … glad that it was renewed.

    Love the show, hope they will renew for ten years. Beautiful love story, Vincent and Kat.
    Please keep the show . Want to see more, people need to watch the show to see the love story. If people know what love is!

        BATB doesn’t attract viewers and not interesting at all abc family has good shows on Mondays in the summer lineup I only saw the first season and it scares me too much

        • Mel says

    I absolutely love this show.. Please renew it. I love the plot … The relationship with Cath and Vincent .

    I’ve loved this show, and have been a loyal fan, but I’m sad to say I’m a little disappointed with the direction it’s going.
    The show is Beauty and the Beast and is supposed to be about how they save each other. Now macho Catherine really doesn’t need anyone to save her. The show is totally about Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan and the rest of the cast are really nothing more than footnotes.
    I watched the show to see a love story not a one sided audition for Ms. Kreuk to be in the new Bond movie. We all know she can kick ass, is beautiful, smart and everything we want in our super heroes, but, I also wanted it be more about the beast. Jay Ryan is a terrific actor and should be given a chance to showcase his abilities.
    I don’t want the show to be cancelled and I’ve wrote several times to the CW requesting that they save it and give it a 3rd season, however, if this trend continues I won’t be watching it.

      Wondering what episode you are on because the show has gotten better and better. You say it should be about vin/cat but you claim it’s only about them. Soo not true. 2nd season finale was great. Everyone was involved in a big way. Hope you’ll keep watching. And Cat does need to kick butt if she and Vincent plan to save each other….. Love this show.
