I thought "The Beast" was a wonderful show and I was sad to see it go. I thought the concept was innovative, the writing marvelous, and the acting superb!! I am an admirer of the actress Elizabeth Mitchell's work. Her performance stands out in everything she appears in. All of the actors in "The Beast" stood out in their performances. I had hoped the show would return, but, alas, I guess all people out in TV land want to see is trash television. Good, quality shows like "The Beast" get canned, but Jerry Springer stays on the air. How...is...that??
