Who's in it? Kristin Kreuk as Catherine (from left) and Jay Ryan as Vincent. Also stars Max Brown as Evan, Nina Lisandrello as Tess, Nicole Gale Anderson as Heather, Austin Basis as J.T., and Brian White as Joe. What it's about: The star-crossed love story with which we're all familiar gets modernized (like the 1980s CBS version) and gets a procedural twist. Det. Catherine Chandler discovers that handsome doctor Vincent Keller is the man who saved her life years earlier. Actually, the beast that Vincent becomes when enraged saved her life, because you can't have a beastly looking leading man in a romance, can you? How long before I bail? They're awfully pretty, aren't they? Still, this drama could get really corny really fast, so I'm a bit leery to commit to more than five episodes.
