I am very passionate about the 1980s television series, "Beauty and the Beast." The Third Season DVDs are just as beautifully digitally remastered as the first and second seasons were. Masterful acting by the two main stars of the series, Ron Perlman, who plays Vincent (The Beast), and Linda Hamilton, who plays Catherine Chandler (Beauty), continues in the third and final chapter of this poignant series. This season of the series portrays the heartbreaking grief experienced by Vincent, the Beast who lives in caves and tunnels under the streets of New York City when the love of his life, Catherine Chandler, an investigative lawyer working in the District Attorneyâ€™s office is kidnapped and murdered by an human monster. It masterfully portrays how love is an eternal journey. Now, please donâ€™t despair over the demise of the television series, because the story is not quite over!
Because of my love of "Beauty and the Beast," I began writing a novel which is a sequel to this series in early July of 2007. I completed and published it in May of 2008. The title of my book is "Loveâ€™s Journey to Awakeningâ€”Beauty and the Beastâ€”Happily Ever After." I wrote it under my pen name, Laurel Cain Haws, and my editor is Dr. Thayle K. Anderson, an English professor emeritus from Murray State University. He is a trusted friend, and a colleague of my beloved late husband, Dr. Gary L. Haws, who was my â€œVincent.â€
My book has a very specific target audience, those who loved this series starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton, and hated its premature demise with its tragic ending. My book fixes that. It doesnâ€™t change the ending. It begins where the series ends and changes the outcome, so it has an happy ending and perhaps a new beginning for more stories about these beloved characters.
If that idea appeals to you, it is essential that you watch all 3 seasons before reading my book. Even if you saw them when they first aired almost 20 years ago, you really need to review and watch them again in order to fully understand and appreciate my book. I never get tired of watching them, and I hope that you will enjoy seeing these characters come back to life with a new story line.
The questions from the series that my novel answers are:
1. Is Catherine Chandler (Beauty) really dead?
2. Where did Vincent (the Beast) really come from?
3. Can there be an happy ending to a modern day fairy tale that starts out, â€œOnce Upon a Time in the City of New York?â€
Buy all three seasons of the series that are now available. Then visit my website, where you can download a free copy of my entire novel. My website link can be accessed at kandycain1587 â€œMeâ€ here on eBay. The timeline and characters are very precious to me, and I was very careful with them. I hope that you will enjoy reading my book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Karen L. Haws
I love the series Beauty and the Beast. This series from the first season to the last season (3rd season) is one of the most romantic and heartfelt series ever. Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton are perfect together. Highly recommended.
I bought the Beauty and the Beast complete Third Season and was shocked by the twist that the story takes in its final episode. Catherine who is the Beauty in the story dies, which is kind of a shocker because everyone knows in the classic story of beauty and the beast, they live happily ever after. But the story still gave us the same Beast Vincent who was great in the last season. However in general I think the season was a little off because it did not play well off the other seasons. For example in the second season when Catherine's father dies she at the end of the show pronounces from a tree that she will not fall and that she will succeed but she doesn't she dies. I just couldn't bring myself to love this season because I don't think they should have killed off Catherine, but it is done and thats that.
Beauty and the Beast was a very good series on TV around 25 or 30 years ago. Since the programming on TV is not worth watching I prefer to watch the old shows that was entertainment. It was like watching the shows for the first time because I had forgotten all of them. I am collecting all of my favorite TV shows from the past.
I bought this because this is one of my favorite shows! They killed Catherine off because Linda Hamilton was pregnant. She was having a difficult time and had to stop working. The writers couldn't replace her, so they had to come to some kind of closure. I think with the time they had, I thought they did a good job.
I have the CD also, wonderful to listen to.
I would recommend this series to anyone that loves a good love story!
