The CW is bringing in the fall season with a few new shows, one of which is the remake of an adaptation (of sorts) of Beauty and the Beast.
I had the opportunity to see the pilot (which airs tomorrow night on the CW) at San Diego Comic Con, and I have to say...
I liked how the cast was diverse as far as the co-stars were concerned, but Kristin Kreuk's acting--sorry, I'm not buying. She can't carry a show. Why oh why don't these execs and casting directors know that pretty can only get you so far?
Also, whoever directed/edited the first ep did a crappy and rush job, in my opinion. The story should have been slowed down; too much was attempted to be crammed into the first 43 minutes or so of the first ep.
That being said, Jay Ryan is adorable, and the fangirls will go mad for him. I think this show will make it to episode 8 before getting the axe.
