Comic-Con: CW's Beauty and the Beast Stays True to Original by Playing Up Forbidden Romance

Kristin Kreuk, Jay Ryan

The CW's Beauty and the Beast may not have singing teacups and dancing candelabras, but it is still a story of forbidden romance.

This B&B is actually based on the 1987 CBS series, with a similar procedural twist. Instead of Ron Perlman as the beast and Linda Hamilton as the beauty, now there's Jay Ryan and Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk as Vincent Keller and Catherine Chandler, respectively. The titular duo's journey to romance is at the heart of the new series.

Parenthood Scoop: Sarah's Love Triangle, Julia's Juggling Act and Amber's Big Romance

Parenthood

Parenthood already has one of the biggest casts on network TV, but it's ensemble just keeps growing. Last season added Adam and Kristina's baby daughter, Nora, and saw the return of Sarah's ex, Mark Cyr (Jason Ritter). For Season 4, which premieres on Sept. 11 at 10/9c, the NBC drama has added a few more fresh faces. There's Victor, Julia and Joel's adopted son and, of course, Emmy winner Ray Romano, who will play yet another love interest for the eldest Braverman daughter. "I've been talking to Ray a bunch about his character and he's really excited about doing it," executive producer Jason Katims tells TVGuide.com. "He's a fan."

But Sarah's complicated love life — including whether or not she accepted Mark's surprise proposal — is far from the only obstacle the Bravermans will face. Katims filled us in on Romano's "acerbic" new guy, Amber's promising new romance, Julia's tough juggling act and whether there's another new Braverman baby on the way for Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant). As usual, it sounds like you should have your Kleenex ready.... read more

Got any Hawaii Five-0 scoop not related to McGarrett's mom? — Melissa
ADAM:
You mean you don't want to know that McGarrett's recently MIA galpal Catherine shamelessly flirts with a witness protection agent to get details on Mama McGarrett's whereabouts? OK, fine: I also hear that Ed Asner's art collector/smuggler August March will be back this season. McGarrett will call on him when a band of armed thieves knock over a years-old art gallery and make off with a couple of priceless paintings. However, the simple heist eventually gives way to a kidnapping, a hostage situation and a deadly shootout.

Please tell me you have something, anything on Grey's Anatomy! — Jackie

12 Things Arrow Can Learn From Smallville, Buffy and More!

Stephen Amell

Get ready for another superhero series!

This fall on The CW's Arrow, fans will get to follow the exploits of DC Comics' Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a playboy who spent five years on a deserted island after a horrific boating accident. The prodigal son will return home and use the alias Green Arrow, a superhero who's super handy with a bow and arrow, to save his precious Star City from the criminals who lie in wait. Arrow has all the trademarks of a great superhero series, including a lost love — Katie Cassidy as Dinah "Laurel" Lance — and the loss of a, spoiler alert, parental figure.

Therefore, we've created a list of things that Arrow should and shouldn't do in order to be successful based on tried-and-true heroic formats: read more
