  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Beauty and the Beast is a 1980s CBS TV series, loosely inspired by the fairy tale of the same name but set in modern-day New York City. The series lasted from September 1987 to August 1990. A total of 56 episodes in three seasons.

The premise was simple. Catherine Chandler (Linda Hamilton), a lawyer, is abducted, beaten, slashed and left to die in Central Park. She is then rescued by Vincent (Ron Perlman), a member of a secret community of outcasts living in tunnels under the city. The series then focused partly on the attraction between the two characters, and partly on the cases Catherine encountered in her new career. Said career being the role of Assistant District Attorney, facing crime drama situations.

Many of the episodes were penned by none other than George R. R. Martin, now famous for his A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels.

The CW commissioned a reboot of the series with a more urban super-hero spin and Kristin Kreuk as Catherine, which debuted in 2012 and had four seasons.
