In retrospect, it's clear that Beauty and the Beast was a reaction to the "greed is good" era. Vincent and his cave-dwelling compatriots represent a more compassionate alternative to "topsider" corruption. Yet all is not harmonious below either. Seriously injured the previous year, Paracelsus (Tony Jay) becomes a Phantom of the Opera-type figure, who aims to destroy Vincent's candle-lit utopia. In addition, a less civilized group of outcasts arrives in "The Outsiders." Fortunately, Vincent has Father (Roy Dotrice), Mary (Ellen Geer), Mouse (David Greenlee), and Pascal (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Armin Shimerman) on his side.
Unfortunately, they won't be able to prevent the tragedy that occurs in "The Rest Is Silence." Suffice to say, the season finale sets the scene for a new direction (more is revealed in the third-season opener). Consequently, Beauty and the Beast was canceled the following year, but still managed to rack up 18 Emmy nominations (winning six), spawning a soundtrack, and even inspiring some Saturday Night Live spoofing--a sure sign it had struck a chord. While the first season was devoid of extras, Perlman and Hamilton introduce six key episodes on this set. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

|Season 2 edited for DVD?||
The term edited does not necessarily mean they are cut, in fact if you look toward the end of Chamber Music you will see a scene in the tunnel with Catherine and Vincent that has not been seen since it was aired for the first time. The scene was not even on the VHS tapes that... Read More

|Beauty and the Beast Documentary Online||
I just watched this "convention website" video with online documentary. I certainly did not see any set locations or interviews with cast or a crew member. What you will see are a couple of fans telling you why they love B&TB.
I am not going to fault them. At least they are trying to... Read More

|Let's talk about Ron and Linda's appearance||
I agree that it was terrific seeing Ron & Linda together again in the select episode intros, talking about the show and their characters.
Ron was a bit too serious, but Linda was trying to be a little lighter - which is how I took it. You could see, however, how much both were captivated by... Read More
