I remember the 1980s series of Beauty and the Beast starring Linda Hamilton which I enjoyed, so thought I'd give this new version a try. Well, I watched the first episode and then just couldn't stop... eventually I had to 'call it a night' at ten to three in the morning having ploughed through 2 DVDs (8 episodes) high on adrenalin and completely addicted! It's a super modern take on a traditional story, with Vincent (the beast), having been used as part of an experiment by the US army and a corporation called 'Muirfield' to produce a 'super soldier' (rather like the Bourne Identity). The experiments have altered his DNA such that he is unable to control his transformations into a super-strong, highly sensitized 'beast'. Of course, despite his violent tendencies, which are generally aimed at the bad-guys, you cannot help but love him, he is vulnerable, afraid of himself, and living an undercover life with very little human contact. Then there's Catherine (Cat). She is one part of a female detective duo who witnessed her mother's murder when she was a teenager but avoided the same fate when she was protected by a strange creature. Years later, Cat becomes a detective and each episode revolves around her and her partner Tess solving some crime or mystery, with a little help from Vincent behind the scenes. As the episodes progress, we gradually find out that Cat is connected in many ways to Vincent and Muirfield, and that her own life is far more complicated than she previously realised. There is another key (and adorable) character in this series who deserves a mention ... JT- the loyal and protective best buddy to Vincent.Read more ›

I got this on import from US so really pleased I can now get a region 2 version. Amazing first season. The DVD includes unseen parts from each episode and also a really great blooper reel and behind the scenes interviews. This show is seriously addictive!

I really enjoyed this show when it was shown last year on Watch & wanted to purchase it when it was released on DVD.
For some reason there was a significant delay with the release date for the UK, which was a shame, but it was well worth waiting for none the less.
A modern day take on the story which has Kristen Kreuk as 'the Beauty' & Jay Ryan as 'the Beast'. Catherine Chandler is a street wise cop with a tragic past & Vincent Keller is a soldier who was experimented on by a shady organisation called Muirfield who transformed him into a 'super soldier' with beast like qualities.
With Vincent on the run from Muirfield their paths first cross when Vincent saves Catherine from an attack during which her mother is killed. Nine years later Vincent saves her again & Catherine realises that it was him that was there on that fateful night when her life changed forever.
During the course of the series, they come together to try solve Catherine's mothers death & defeat Muirfield, along the way Vincent helps Catherine with her 9 - 5 job of being a cop & solving murders. Inevitably they fall in love but it is not a smooth path & plenty of situations arise which put them in jeopardy.
A great series, plenty of 'edge of your seat' drama with a gentle love story woven through the plot.
I am currently watching Season 2 & hope that I don't have to wait too long for it to released on DVD!

If you are a big fan of supernatural TV series then you must get into this one. With the female lead being a policewoman she is much tougher than the usual weak leading femailes of other series. Enjoyable and keeping you wanting more, would recommend!

Love this show - compelling viewing. The female lead is a tough no-nonsense cop with a sassy partner. The hero is being protected by his best friend because....well, watch the series and find out! Series 2 is currently on Watch TV.

I came across this re-telling of the classic fairy tale by chance when I was bored snd channel hopping. Series was already on the 3rd episode of S1. I fell in love and have been hooked ever since! I looked for the episodes that I had missed and as they say, the rest is history.

Season 2 is currently on Watch channel on Sky.

The cast is amazing and the chemistry between the lead actors is out of this world. If you have not watched this series yet, you are missing out. Cannot recommend it enough.
