Review: 'Beauty and the Beast' The Complete Series

12 October 2008 4:38 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

In 1987, television was evolving.  Thanks to Hill Street Blues, the way dramatic stories were presented became more complex, the storytelling more diverse and the stories more compressed. The subject matter was also starting to broaden, moving beyond cops, lawyers and doctors.  It was just before the Sf wave kicked off with Star Trek: The Next Generation but that didn’t stop CBS from trying something a little different.

On a Friday night, September 25, 1987, audiences were treated to a different look at the classic Beauty and the Beast tale.  The series starred Ron Perlman as Vincent, the beast, a mutant of some sort, who comes to the rescue of Linda Hamilton’s Catherine, a rich girl turned assistant district attorney.  Their connection became the stuff of fairy tale and from that pilot episode, their fates became inextricable.

It had all the lush romance of a Harlequin book and the action to keep spouses by their side. »
