Too intelligent for people who think *Survivor* was good TV.
17 September 2001 | by garametSee all my reviews

*The Beast* never had a chance on network television. Set the viewer down inside the studio of a cutting-edge CNN-like television station, and let us see how its inhabitants live and work by following them around with a handheld camera everywhere but to the restroom. Give us current news, like the brush-wars in small countries no one can find on a map, and have a couple of our reporters detained for interrogation. Add a killer with possible connections to the TV station. Show us how the tech people work behind the scenes. Throw in a - horrors! - interracial love story, and your show is destined to be axed after a handful of episodes. The scripting was brilliant, the acting crisp, the production values edgy, the characters fully-realized and appealing, warts and all. The weekly dilemma between what constitutes good reporting and when it's necessary to sacrifice reportorial objectivity to save people's lives was thought-provoking, the kind of thing you carry away from the hour and ruminate on the next day, and the next. A TV show that asks viewers to *think*? Didn't you guys realize that would doom you to failure?
