BEAUTY AND THE BEAST The Final Season
(aka BEAUTY AND THE BEAST The Third Season)
DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 543 minutes (12 episodes on 3 discs)
VIDEO: 1.33:1 (Full Frame)
AUDIO: English 2.0 Dolby Digital
Subtitles: English Close Captioning

STUDIO: Paramount/ CBS DVD
RELEASE DATE: 2-5-2007

DISC 1- THOUGH LOVERS BE LOST Part 1 & 2/ WALK SLOWLY/ NEVERMORE
DISC 2- SNOW/ BEGGAR'S COMET/ A TIME TO HEAL/ IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT
DISC 3- CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT/ INVICTUS/ THE RECKONING/ LEGACIES

The third season of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was teh beginning of the end for the series. Lind Hamilton wanted out of the series and Catherine was killed off at the start of the series. It began a quest for Vincent (Ron Perlman) to get back his and Catherine's son (who has been taken by druglord Gabriel responsible for Catherine's death. Gabriel takes extreme measures to get what he wants and for people to listen to him. Big businessman Elliot Burch finds his empire being taken apart because he is searching for answers about Catherine's murder and Joe (a lawayer at the New York District Attorney) finds himself suspended because the DA is in Gabriel's pocket. Enter Detective Diana Bennett (Jo Anderson) who investigate's Catherine's death and become's a new ally of Vincent and the World Below.

The third season is darker. The tone has changed from the rest of the series. The romance between Vincent and Catherine is gone, but her presence is still felt. Vincent mourns for Catherine. He escapes death more than once in the quest to find his son and get his revenge against Gabriel. It would have been interesting to see where the series would have went if it wasn't cancelled. The last few episodes hint at Diana having a growing attraction to Vincent. Too bad the series didn't go on for longer.

It is sad that CBS DVD didn't include any extras for this final season. I would have loved to seen a reflection on the third season from cast and crew.
