It was bound to happen sooner or later, guys. I've been sucked into the black hole of a CW show and I'm not fighting it.
When I first heard about this reboot of Beauty and the Beast, I thought that it would be yet another entertaining CW show that I'd watch in my spare time, but not something I'd need to watch every week. Boy was I wrong. Is the show quality? No. Does it have flaws? Of course. But, you guys:
It's no wonder I can't get enough.
For those of you who didn't know me during my junior and senior year of high school/freshman year of college, let me digress for a moment to paint you a picture of the extent to which I was obsessed. with Roswell. The night of the third season premiere, I was ready and waiting for the show to start, sitting cozily on my dorm room bed and having warned my roommates that it was best if they didn't talk unless there were commercials on, when the fire alarm went off. I was pissed. I exited my room and stomped down the hall, cursing and slamming any doors that got in my way. (I'm pretty sure I scared my roommates, who, at that point, I'd only known for like a month.) I was able to throw a tape into the VCR* so that I didn't miss the whole thing, but still. GD fire alarm.
Although Beauty and the Beast isn't about high school aliens, there are a lot of things about the show that remind me of Roswell. The main guy in both shows is moody and hiding a huge secret. The main girls are outsiders who are thrown into keeping the guys' secrets secret ... and who have actually been the objects of the guys' affections for much longer than the girls know. The two sets of main characters even look similar (see above).
In the decade since Roswell's third season premiere, I've learned to
I promise to at least try not to curse and slam doors if a fire alarm goes off during an episode.
*Yes, thank you, I did mean to type VCR.
