Canceled and renewed TV show

    I usually find romances terribly long-winded and repetitive but Beauty and the Beast has just gone from strength to strength since it’s lacklustre pilot. The actors have really great chemistry (well done casting directors!). This week’s episode was really just perfect from start to finish. I have found myself eagerly checking the viewing figures and hoping for the show’s renewal because this show has really found its stride and it would be a terrible shame if it were to be cancelled prematurely which is an all too prevalent trend these days. I didn’t mind the secret circle and was even initially a little annoyed upon hearing it had been cancelled, but it was definitely not the must-see television that Beauty and the Beast has become. So out with the old and in with the new.

    What this week’s episode really displayed (besides the fact that Kristen Kreuk and Jay Ryan are tremendous actors) is that this show is best when they are not connecting the the police drama with the Vincent and Cat’s relationship so overtly. The BB relationship and Cat’s work-life at the precinct don’t always have to intertwine. I hope the writers really take that into consideration since both story-lines will be better off disconnected. Vicent needs to be given an existence outside the confines of his warehouse in some capacity however small- so he doesn’t have to be a stalker in every episode and do so without showing up on Muirfield’s radar. I feel that linking the murder mystery and the relationship elements so strongly has resulted in the Police story-lines being a little far-fetched and suspending the point of disbelief to breaking point as writers neatly try to tie it all together, when they shouldn’t be even attempting to in the first place.

    That said, Kristin and Jay are carrying the show in my opinion. Despite the show’s other flaws (easily remedied) there scenes together are truly excellent. You can’t help but root for them both. It seems that the show is at its best when the obstacles in their way don’t seperate them but bring them closer together.

    Also, I don’t find Cat’s sister Heather in the least bit annoying like some other viewers seem to, actually she’s very cute and sincere and I think her presence enhances the show. She certainly helped generate a lot of momentum in this week’s episode and she was just looking out for her sister (after all Vicent did look as though he was snooping in her room – who wouldn’t be suspicious??? It wasn’t the best move).

    All in all, watch beauty and the beast and don’t let the cynics deter you because they will always find something to complain about. Keep this great show on the air!.

    Scandal is sweeping the nation, I am fascinated by it’s speed and multi-layered plot-line.
    Scandal is smart and relevant TV. I am surprised nobody had tackled the dysfunction of Washington before.
    It make you think, it makes you deduct for days after. I love it.

    Watched Zero Hour and it reminded me of the “DaVinci Code”. We enjoyed the show and hope ABC doesn’t cancel it before it has a chance for an audience, like they did “Last Resort”. Shows are cancelled too quickly nowadays in favor of reality shows, that cost almost nothing to produce but have stupid people on that want to eat bugs or crawl in mud and garbage.

    I think after what happened with Do No Harm, I’m going to wait until a show airs an entire season for starting it.

    I was watching the premiere of Zero Hour last night even though I had already watched it online on ABC’s website a week earlier. I like the show and will keep watching it. I love Big Bang Theory, too, but will record that to watch later.
