Can a television show be interesting, and yet sleep inducing all at the same time? If so, then Beauty and the Beast is that show. I’ve tried to watch it three times, and every time find my self hypnotized into sleep. I will admit I expected it to be awful, but I actually found the show somewhat intriguing. I just hope it gets better, because the pilot was pretty rough. Thank God for the new CW app, which aided me in my many attempted viewings!
Beauty and the Beast is about two people – Catherine Chandler (Kristen Kreuk) and Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan) whose lives keep intersecting. Catherine is an Ivy League educated young woman with dreams of a successful law career. Then in the fall of 2003 she watches as her mother is gunned down by 3 unknown assailants. Vincent Keller was a doctor who joined the military after his brother was killed in the Twin Tower attacks on 9/11. Vincent used to work at St. Benjamin’s Hospital in New York, then joined the military where he was experimented on, and turned into a super soldier. On the night that Catherine and her mother were attacked, it was Vincent who saved the day. Now, his fingerprints are found on a new case Catherine is investigating. (More…)
