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.Written by

The series was loosely remade in 2012. The only things retained were Catherine and Vincent's names and the New York setting. See more »

The show is great, including the third season. . .
This show is my favorite TV show of all time. It's rich and complex, and deals with a variety of issues and perspectives. I'm a third season fan, which puts me a little out of the loop with most of the fans, but third season deals with Vincent's loss of Catherine, his quest for his son, and it even hints at him learning to love someone again. The show is always well-written and acted, with a great supporting cast. The only weak spot is near the end of the second season, when the show, in my opinion, deals too much with Vincent's "inner demons." Otherwise, it's an intriguing, romantic, exciting show.
