Television: Beauty and the Beast — Should it be cancelled?

Posted by JungleBoot on September 13, 2015

Beauty and the Beast recently ended its third season on a positive note — Kat and Vincent (or should it be Vincent and Kat?) finally got married?  Yeah!! But, I have a problem.  Too many shows are running far longer than they should — Supernatural comes to mind.  Vincent and Kat have been through so much — not to leave out JT, Tess, and Heather.  But, the premise of the show is long over.  Unless the viewers have forgotten, Kat discovers Vincent and begins a journey of discovery which leads her to so many unknown truths.  Well, most of those secrets have been discovered and are common knowledge.  Now, the cat is literally out of the bag.  Homeland Security knows the truth about Vincent.  Can you guess how season 4 is gonna go if we don’t stop the nonsense?

I’m sorry.  I like the show.  But, it seems like a good time to put Beauty and the Beast to bed.  I really don’t want to see the show drop into the weekly Police / Homeland Security procedural.  For once, just admit it’s time to move on and focus on your more popular shows that have more story to tell:  Arrow, Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow (hopefully).  It’s also time for CW to leave “Twilight” shows behind and look for new properties.  Almost Human was good.  At least, I liked it.  Maybe it’s time for a new Terminator series that takes into account events of the most recent film.  But, do something new.  Be original.  And for the love of God, give a show a real chance.
