Open Letter to the CW

 

I read that you are going to Reboot Beauty and the Beast: (CW To Reboot 1980s ‘Beauty And The Beast’ – Deadline.com)

DON"T! DO NOT DO THIS!

If you knew or understood what story arcs, characterization, or mood where in fiction, I would not be so adamantly against this. This show had 2 unrecastable actors in the lead roles, and was a story of longing and unrequited love that your tween audience will not be able to understand.

If You Must

If you are committed to doing this,

  • Please watch the original.
  • Cast Ron Perlman to play father as an homage to the original and to give some gravitas to the series
  • Hire writers who understand subtlety, nuance, and longing.

Eric & Brian

P.S.

Your original programming would have better ratings if you did not ostracize a segment of your audience.  For better or worse if you do go forward with the show I probably will never see it due to your stand against cable-cutters and your continued efforts to make watching your shows as difficult as possible... Thank You?  I think...

Leaves’ Eyes Double Live DVD and CD Details

Leaves’ Eyes is my favorite Beauty and the Beast band, and the fact their two last albums, Vinland Saga and Legend Land tell the story of the Viking discovery of the new world, its perils, fights, and rewards.

This preview of the concert movie made me jump up and down in my seat.  Eventually, it will be released as a Double DVD and a Double CD after it has completed its theatrical run.  I cannot wait to get a copy.
