Review

The cult hit from the 1980s has been reimagined for the Twilight generation and it’s a very strange animal indeed. This is a world where everyone who works for the NYPD is under 30 and beautiful, while the Beast of the title is less a leonine enigma and more a bland hunk shot permanently in half-light. The casting of Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk should attract some, but whether she can establish a rapport with new co-star Jay Ryan remains to be seen.

Summary

A detective who, as a teenager, witnessed the murder of her mother by two gunmen is reunited with the person who saved her that day - a doctor who periodically turns into a monster. First episode of the fantasy drama, with Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan.
