Latest Trailer for CW's Beauty and the Beast
Have you seen this latest trailer for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast on CW? It premieres on October 11th, a month from today so I am expecting more and more press to start appearing on it.
So far the most common complaint, not just from me, is that the hero is no Beast. A scar makes him beastly?

Yes, he may be beastly in other ways, such as a tendency for violence, but that then leads us into other prickly issues about abuse, doesn't it? I hope not, but it's always a possibility.
And after all that, I bet this is going to be a big hit for CW's audience. But for now we'll play the waiting game. And worry just a little...
