Editorial Reviews

From the popular '80s television series comes the story about the man-beast Vincent, who has fallen in love with Catherine, a young attorney, and desires that she stay with him in his underground home, although he knows she belongs to the city above. Contains the episodes "To Reign in Hell" AND "Orphans". In "To Reign in Hell", Vincent prepares for a battle to the death after Paracelsus (arch-nemesis to the tunnel dwellers) kidnaps Catherine in order to lure Vincent into a trap. In "Orphans" Catherine gets bad news when she learns that her father has had a stroke. As he lingers near death she reveals to him her secret about Vincent. Later, after his death, Catherine falls into a deep depression and decides once and for all to leave her life above and move below to be with Vincent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Live with Him, Can't Live without Him May 29, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This episode deals quite seriously (and often in a lovely lyrical fashion) with the serious consequences (for Catherine) of her relationship with Vincent. On the 20th anniversary of her mother's death, Catherine is overcome with a sense of hopelessness about her life. The problem seems to be...Vincent. She must confront the fact that their relationship is closing her off from life possibilities for which she has always longed. As he tells her, "Our dream exists at the cost of all your other dreams." Her pain is so great that (in an extremely powerful scene) the superhumanly chivalrous Vincent gives her the breakup she so desperately needs (though doing so, for him, is akin to ripping his heart out of his chest). It is a breakup she could never, ever, bring herself to directly ask for. It takes time away from Vincent for Catherine to come to a realization of what in her life is indeed "worth everything." She makes her choice, and she and Vincent (and we) derive great joy from that decision. I've never (before or since) experienced such joy at the finish of an episode of a TV series!
Linda Hamilton is so good here that she gives us an empathic connection to Catherine that is stronger than Vincent's. "A Happy Life" is a thing of stunning beauty and power, and I don't think there is a significant misstep in it. This episode and the magnificent "Orphans" are by far the highest pinnacles of achievement for this series.
In 1998 I conducted a poll among Beauty and the Beast fans asking them to rate the 44 episodes of the first two seasons on a 1-to-10 scale. 31 fans participated. "A Happy Life" finished 1st out of the 44 episodes.
I placed "A Happy Life" 1st in my own personal 1-through-44 rank-ordering of the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two episodes January 8, 2000
By Azarina
Format:VHS Tape
It should be noted that this 95 minute video contains two episodes: "To Reign in Hell," (the episode described by the professional review) and "Orphans," one of the best eps of the series. The compelling stories, the consummate acting of Ron Perlman and Tony Jay, the beautiful sets, and the whole concept of B&B are all great reasons to own this video.

3.0 out of 5 stars Catherine wonders if Vincent is "the bad guy" February 15, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
A vigilante reported to have beast-like features is on the prowl in New York's subway trains. Catherine has suspicions the vigilante may be Vincent. There is some interesting interaction between Vincent and Catherine very early in their relationship, as Catherine doesn't seem to be fully comfortable with him (this was the 2nd episode to be broadcast). The "villain" in this episode is a little more complex and interesting than most.
In 1998 I conducted a poll among Beauty and the Beast fans asking them to rate the 44 episodes of the first two seasons on a 1-to-10 scale. 31 fans participated. "Terrible Savior" finished 40th out of the 44 episodes.
I placed "Terrible Savior" 35th in my own personal 1-through-44 rank-ordering of the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and the Beast - the dream lives on. April 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This first part to the series is the one so many people fell in love with and it is a must if you have never seen Beauty and the Beast before. For from that first episode so starts the relationship between the man beast Vincent Wells and the beautiful district attorney Catherine Chandler. From the very first this couple captured our hearts, especially Vincent, who soon had his own following - as everyone that watched the series wanted to take him home. Soon he became every woman's dream as to the perfect man, and it became apparent that outward appearances are not important, it is the beauty of the inner self that shines through any differences. That and the fact that Vincent has the most gorgeous blue eyes, gravelly sexy voice, a marvelous physique and a love of the finer things in life such as good music and literature. And Vincent made us review our own life and made us better people. Vincent was played to perfection by the man behind the makeup - Ron Perlman. And there is a marvelous chemistry that exists between Mr Perlman and Linda Hamilton the actress that plays Catherine Chandler, that made their roles oh so believeable. Buy it, watch it and you will be forever pleased that you did. There is a huge fan following for this show who are campaigning to have more episodes made and hopefully a movie too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Waiting... March 4, 2005
By CB
Format:VHS Tape
This show NEEDS to be on DVD. I've worn out two sets of VHS tapes. Shakespeare became more than an English class assignment and I now work in classical theatre, due, in some small part, to listening to the music of Vincent's words. The show's soundtrack is the first CD in the player for road trips. I want my Catherine and Vincent on DVD.
