Fall TV Preview: Beauty and the Beast

Sep 05, 2012

This fall The CW is putting a gritty new spin on an age old fairy tale by dragging Beauty in the Beast into the crime-ridden streets of 21st century New York. Find out more in the Kidzworld TV Preview of Beauty and the Beast.

The Story

Catherine Chandler (Kristin Kreuk), a smart, savvy no-nonsense NYC Homicide Detective, is haunted by her tragic past. As a teenager she experienced the horror of watching her mother's murder at hands of two gunmen, and would have suffered the same fate if something (or someone) hadn't mysteriously saved her life. Catherine knows that it wasn't an animal that attacked those assassins, but her story is so outlandish that no one has ever believed her claim that it was a strange and scary different type of human.

Years later while investigating a murder with her partner Tess (Nina Lisandrello) a set of fingerprints lead her right to Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan), a handsome Doctor who was reported dead years ago while serving in the Afghanistan war, but much to her surprise when she digs deeper the good Doctor isn't dead at all and has been hiding on the fringes of society because of a condition that turns him into a terrifying beast when he gets angry. And guess what, the doctor has another secret, he's been watching over Cat for years since her mother's murder!

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
