Trivia

Jay Ryan auditioned for the show while wearing a giant, ridiculous wig. When Beauty and the Beast was first casting, Ryan was busy filming the miniseries Top of the Lake, for which he had shaved his head completely. So when he got a last-minute call to do a chemistry read with Kreuk, the studio decided he would better fit the part if he had some hair. Unfortunately for him, the only hair they had on hand was a big, gray, out of the box thing that looked like a big mane on his head. Luckily, even a bad wig couldn't disguise his good looks, and he got the part and a new 'do. See more »

Goofs

The show is supposed to take place in New York, and yet numerous street and road signs reveal that it is not New York, but give away the filming location of Canada. See more »

Just be patient
20 October 2012 | by iqphantomSee all my reviews

I really like the idea of a Beauty more determined and more ready to kick some b...in the quest for the truth. It is a different concept and a different Vincent. I truly don't get it how can one review a TV show after such a short while. Clearly some of us need to be patient. They will fall in love...I mean you have to be blind not to notice the chemistry ( she is obviously extremely attracted to him and vice versa)but where will be the fun if he would jump her bones in the first episodes? Also , the obvious adrenaline issue ( he turns when it kicks in) which was so carefully underlined by his friend -" Remember what happened the last time you made the play list?" - will most likely be in the way.

I mean, really you guys , give it a chance and stop expecting hot sex and blasting love from the first episodes. Next...you will say the kiss ( which has yet to happen) was lame. Does anybody remember the classic series? How long did it took for them to actually kiss...
