Storyline

Ron Koslow's updated version of the fairytale has a double focus: the relationship between Vincent,(a mythic, noble man-beast) and Catherine (an asst DA in New York); and a secret Utopian society of outcasts living in an underground sanctuary where Vincent is protected and loved. Through an emotional bond connecting Vincent to Catherine, he comes to be her protector as well as the man she loves. The series follows the developing relationship between them and nicely fleshes out the underground world of labyrinth tunnels, mystical waterfalls, and people who have come together to form a loving and nurturing family.

From a woman's point of view...
26 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

These negative comments gotta be from guys...

Now, from a woman's perspective- you can't get any better than Vincent. If you ever hope to understand or impress a woman,

you better start with Ron Perlman's Vincent. Watch it again,and study it carefully, cause any woman that's seen this movie (and the shows)is going to be comparing you to a perfectly romantic character that does the right thing and says the right thing ALL the time, every time. And no matter what your opinion of the movie is, you gotta' admit that's one tough act to follow.(If you can't admit it, you've missed the whole point.)
