It's a shame this excellent show never got the viewers or number of episodes that it deserved. Amid the many lawyer, cop, and medical dramas this show, about a news station that reported stories and angles that other stations wouldn't report, was a refreshing change. The title, "The Beast", refers to the news station where the show is set. The station reports on news stories different from those the established stations run, and when the news gets slows they live broadcast from the cameras set up throughout the station. While the series was only allowed to run six episodes (the second which was not shown on TV), it quickly established interesting and compelling characters and plot lines. Perhaps part of the reason the show didn't get the numbers it needed to stay on the air was due to it's serial nature, where if you missed an episode or two it made difficult to follow some of continuing story lines. "The Beast" is an interesting and engaging show that I highly recommend.
