Beauty and the Beast is Awful.
 
It didn't make sense.

Though the twihards might get into it because of all the brooding and doomed love sexless hugs as the moonlight shines through... Awful.

Girl cop tracks down Batman and doesn't take him to jail for beating dozens of people half to death... Because he's a hero... Who admits to being mentally unstable incapable of controlling his murderous berserker rages.

Captain America is a junkie too.

I swear Lana was just regurgitating old Smallville dialogue.

"Sigh"

"you save people"

Bullshit, he's dangerous and a threat to the common good.

Everything else was meh and equally bland.

Don't watch this shit.

Even if you think it will get you laid.

Not worth it.

Is there anything you don't cynically troll?

I think Guy is doing a marvellous job; thanklessly forcing himself to watch shit so that nobody else has to.

Re: Beauty and the Beast is Awful.
 
I started three threads recently...

"Nashville is Good" "Emily Owens MD" (Which was extremely positive, except that I find beepers ridiculous. Although I did spend ninty percent of the thread shitting and helping other shit on the Mob Doctor.) and "Last Resort is Awesome".

I had positive things to say about Green Arrow and I was Amazed that Red Dwarfs Humour had returned from the grave.

If a show is good, I haven't much to say usually, but this is pilot season and I thought I'd be nice and guide folkes between the shoals and the sand, it's the least I could do.

Imagine the worst episode of Angel Season One, when the blonde cop is trying not to fall in love with that walking fore head... Got that? Now strip the humour and Kung Fu... And that's what we got here, except that the villain of the week was a couple junkie muggers just trying to make ends meet.

The teaser looked dull. I much prefer the Linda Hamilton, Ron Perlman series. Sugary romance to be sure, but better performed than that thing now.

This series would be better titled "Beauty and another kind of Beauty".

BTW Gov Karnstein, what is your avatar from.

The Vampire Lovers, a 1970 film starring Ingrid Pitt. The movie is a decent adaptation of Le Fanu's vampire tale, Carmilla.

Agreed. And...Truth be told, I find that he is more generous to many shows than many others would be.

So, did they do anything with CGI to ugly him up, or is it just the scar and the weird eyes?

I agree. He's usually right to the point and on target.

The show did well in the premiere but frankly I think that was due to TVD's lead in and the fact that the audience had nothing else to watch in that timeslot except some old guy arguing with some even older guy about a bunch of boring stuff. Nexy week it falls off a cliff.

At first my wife was interested in watching it and then she found out it had Lana from Smallville in it and she lost all interest.
