"Beauty And The Beast’s pilot is the worst episode of television I will ever force myself to watch four times. The first time was my usual half watch, having it on while I did other stuff to see if it grabbed my attention. (It didn’t.) The second time, I couldn’t stop myself from surfing the Internet or folding laundry or anything to keep from having to watch it. The third time, I fell asleep for a good 10 minutes in the middle. Finally, the fourth time, I was able to watch the whole thing critically and give it a fair shake. It took everything in my power to do so. It’s taking everything in my power to write this review. I keep wanting to go wash dishes or check the scores or something. Anything but this."
