Did we miss anyone?


  1. The Beauty and the Beast series was great with all the great actors.The cast were funny, serious, and the romance with all of the couple’s together.I would like to have seen how Max and Gabe would have played out with Catherine. But Catherine and Vincent so sexy together and seem like they really were in love.Would love to see more episodes for a fifth season.

    • Amen to that . We need series 5 6 7 etc. Just to see all the great cast . I loved all of them But Kat and Vincent ….damn!!!! awesome I think they come out with a calendar of just Jay🖐️😎

  2. I, like everyone else, love The Beauty and the Beast series. And like every other woman, (or most) am totally in love with Jay Ryan, as the Beast. Now that I have seen Jay’s portrial of the beast, any other actor in that part, would be a big disappointment. I have seen some of the other parts he has done, and it seems like, he tries to put all he can, into the parts he does. His personality, and his good looks all help, but I get the feeling that there is a lot more than just a good looking guy to him. I think he really loves what he does. The fact that I have totally fallen for him, explains it all. But it says something for him as an actor, when he can get even a 76 yr old to fall under his spell.

  3. Loved this series. The connection between Ryan and Kristen was amazing . The whole cast seemed connected. Wish the series had gone on longer. There was so much more story to tell.
