Do you remeber this 80’s TV classsic?

It’s the old classic, Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast is an American drama series which first aired  in 1987. Creator Ron Koslow’s updated version of the fairy tale has a double focus: the relationship between Vincent (Ron Perlman), a mythic, noble man-beast, and his Catherine (Linda Hamilton), a savvy assistant District attorney in New York; and a secret Utopian community of social outcasts living in a subterranean sanctuary.

Through an empathetic bond, Vincent senses Catherine’s emotions, and becomes her guardian. The series follows the developing relationship between the characters and the division between New York and the hidden world beneath it. In a twist from the original tale, however, this “beast” does not transform into society’s idea of beauty after gaining the love of Catherine. Rather, Vincent’s inner beauty is allowed to remain the focus of who he is, and it is Catherine’s life which transforms from her relationship to Vincent.

Ah, nothing like a good old romance…
