What we said then:
"Even on a network where Rachel Bilson has dreams of being a cardio-thoracic surgeon, Kreuk's tough girl act is a stretch
... Linda Hamilton never went all Jason Bourne on three attackers in a subway (and if she had, it would've been a lot less hilarious than watching Kreuk do the same)."
What we say now:
The cop stuff hasn't improved all that much, but the procedural elements of "Beauty and the Beast" are mere filler in between romance scenes. And the romance (along with Kreuk's Catherine acting like a real city girl) has
improved. Still, it's just another CW soap.
