The Beast

1 Season

Season 1
4.7 out of 5 stars (100) IMDb 8/10

The mischievous Barker hazes Dove as they go undercover on their first case to infiltrate a weapons smuggling ring. Barker brilliantly manipulates situations, constantly tests his new partner's abilities and pushes him to delve deeper into the roles of the undercover characters he creates. Although Dove takes a liking to Barker, the new job takes its toll on him. The stress and danger of being an agent quickly makes him realize that he can no longer maintain normal relationships outside of work. Yet that's not the worst of it. The rookie is confronted with a larger challenge: An FBI Internal Affairs team feels Barker may have gone rogue and they try to enlist Dove as a double-agent in the bureau's investigation of his mentor.

It wasn't long ago that the world was made aware of Patrick Swayze's battle with cancer. Once made public, everyone speculated that he would never act again. Thank goodness someone had the decency to side up with Swayze and give him the chance with the TV show THE BEAST.

Swayze stars as FBI undercover agent Charles Barker. Barker is an agent who gets the job done no matter what it takes. If the rules need bent a little then so be it. But the scum of the Earth are the villains he tracks down and Barker makes no bones about the way he thinks they should be handled.

As the series begins we are also introduced to Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmell), a young agent just starting out in the undercover world. Ellis is being trained by Barker and Barker doesn't go easy on him. Within minutes of the shows start, he actually shoots him in the chest...twice! Sure, he's wearing a Kevlar vest but it can't feel good. Truth be told, Ellis was about to blow his cover which would have resulted in his death. The 2 shots may have hurt but in the long run they saved his life and provided a needed lesson.

The difference between the two men is obvious. Where Barker is world weary and battle scarred, a man who knows his way around the technicalities of the law and who knows how to get his man, Ellis is fresh and new. It shows in his actions and the way he looks at the job. Its showdown time with each new assignment and he's ready for action. But that attitude can get you killed rather than the job done. It will take Barker to reign in Ellis and train him so that he doesn't get himself or his partner killed.

The initial episode finds the pair searching for missiles on American soil. But it's not just the missiles that they want.

Overall this show 'wowed' me a lot more then I ever thought it would, though I was never sold on the title they chose. Surprisingly good, despite some new comers and a gritty underbelly. I believe this is the last work Patrick Swayze did, before his death from cancer, September 14, 2009.
Mr. Swayze made his acting debut in the 1983 movie 'The Outsiders' directed by Francis Ford Coppola, which also starred several other beginners, including Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane, and Matt Dillon among others. For those interested in more about Mr. Swayze, his book is coming out September 29, 2009, aptly titled 'The Time of My Life'.
The show, Season 1, which contains thirteen episodes, originally aired on January 15, 2009, on the A&E Channel, is about a veteran FBI agent (Swayze) who gets a new partner (Travis Fimmel), and is not too excited about it. The new 'wet behind the ears' partner soon learns that his veteran partner is probably working on both sides of the fence (legal and illegal) and has to decide what to do when he gets approached to spy and rat on him (Swayze).
Great story, great troubled characters, some incredible action scenes, smart and fun dialogue, nice set design. I was truly amazed on how good it was.
Unfortunately, there is only one season. The show got canceled due to concerns about Mr. Swayze's health issues (pancreatic cancer). It's a loss to those of us that came to love the series.
Update:
While I didn't like that they canceled show, because I loved it so much, I'm glad they did now, so Mr. Swayze could have that time with family and friends before he passed on. I feel like this series was some of his best work.

I was the director of photography on this project. We knew that Patrick was very ill but I learned a great deal about the man and his wife during production. He refused to let anyone else do his stunts, was always incredibly kind and generous to fans. I recall one night in Chicago a car load drove by and shouted, "we love you, Patrick". With that great sense of humor he shouted back, "I'm not dead yet!" He and the entire company laughed long and hard. Looking at this project and realizing that he knew this was his last piece of work gives a greater depth to the character he played and to the honor and professionalism of the man. I highly recommend it.

The Beast was an excellent show. It was colorful, salty, adventurous. Excellent, fully committed acting all around. Patrick Swayze and Travis Fimmel hit their stride early and had great chemistry. Half a season is better than none. But it doesn't make me feel better.

This show was soooo good! It was exciting! Each week I was so wrapped up in what was going on, I didn't even realize the time, it went by so fast. I couldn't wait for the next episode. I'm really sad the show won't be returning. It leaves so many questions unanswered. If you don't mind only one season and enjoy action and very interesting plots, you should buy this! I wish Patrick all the love in the world and pray for a miracle. I do hope to see Travis Fimmel in other shows or movies!

This is a terrific and entertaining show that is presented wonderfully in dvd. There is not a lot of bonus material with Patrick Swayze for obvious reasons. His work on this remains like all his previous work- perfect. He was an incredible actor and it amazes me that he worked on this series while he battled pancreatic cancer. The show's characters and sub-plots are interesting while also keeping in line with the central story arc of the season: is he a rogue FBI agent or not? This is a great story and Swayze should've earned some awards or at least some nominations for his role as the troubled FBI agent. There are many labels one could attach to his character, but he was, unfortunately, not allowed enough time to evolve. Like the actor who portrayed him, he was gone too soon... An added bonus is to see Lou Diamond Phillips star in an episode with Swayze.
