More CW Beauty and the Beast unenthusiasm

So no one appears to be excited about the new Beauty and the Beast show, fairy tale lovers or those just looking for entertaining new shows. The Washington Post's review deems it "hideously blah". It's nothing we haven't heard before circling around the blogosphere, mainly wondering where the Beast is: "Rather than slather on a lot of makeup and prosthetics, Vincent’s disfiguration is symbolized by a manly scar on Ryan’s pretty, pretty cheek."

In my opinion they should have just given the show and characters new names and marketed it as a new idea. Don't try to sell something as a show that still has fans and a following if it's such a stretch to equate it to the inspiration.
