The CW's 'Beauty and the Beast' Is a Disappointing Spin on the Original Series - PopMattersCreator Ron Koslow's updated version of the fairy tale has a double focus: the relationship between Vincent Ron Perlman , a mythic, noble man-beast, and Catherine Linda Hamilton , a savvy Assistant District Attorney in New York ; and a secret Utopian community of social outcasts living in a subterranean sanctuary. Through an empathetic bond, Vincent senses Catherine's emotions, and becomes her guardian. The series follows the developing relationship between the characters and the division between New York and the hidden world beneath it. In a twist from the original tale, however, this "beast" does not transform into society's idea of beauty after gaining the love of Catherine. Rather, Vincent's inner beauty is allowed to remain the focus of who he is, and it is Catherine's life that transforms from her relationship to Vincent.

Together, the pair navigated New York City and a secret, subterranean world of misfits and social outcasts. They formed an intimate bond that was broken only by Catherine's murder at the beginning of the third season. Despite its relatively brief run, Beauty and the Beast has consistently been voted one of the most popular cult shows of all time. Early promos for the show hinted at a grittier, uglier version of the original series. Unfortunately, the darkest moments in the premiere episode were purely cinematographic. The new Beauty and the Beast is quite campy without intending to be so, an affliction from which many The CW shows suffer.
