  • AWESOME! CW needs to find a role on any show for Craig Horner, as well. Legend of the Seeker was epic.

  • B&TB is one of those shows that has been getting better and better with each episode.

  • I agree..the pilot was pretty bad but the last couple episodes have been really good.

  • IA with Jared, the past episode or two were much much better and hearing that my girl is going to join the cast = EPIC WIN! Wonder if she’ll stay red.

  • I’m totally addicted. Much better than expected. Beautiful people in crime procedural with a fun twist. Castle meets Grimm. . .but sexier.

  • Been waiting for her to land her own series for a while now. This is the next best thing, I guess. Might actually have to check out the show now. I was a big fan of the Sword of Truth books (on which Legend of the Seeker was based). Never cared for Craig Horner, but Bridget Regan was the perfect Kahlan.

  • Woo hoo…can’t wait to see bridget on screen again. I do miss legend of the seeker. Now if they could cast Craig Horner as her fiance/boyfriend that would be awesome.

    Love the show…c’com the CW & Showcase pick it up for the full season already. :-)

  • Darnit… I wanted her on Joss’s SHIELD series :P

  • I was hoping she would be Cat’s future step mother.

    Comment by Candice – November 5, 2012 01:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ooo, that’s no good for me! Loving these Cat/Vincent scenes! But it’ll be nice to mix it up a bit. I LOVE this show so much! Agree with other posts, it just gets better with each episode!

    Comment by Jessica – November 5, 2012 01:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes, Yes. and Yes. Anything with Bridget Regan is amazing. why she isn’t on tv more I have no idea.

    Comment by Bonnie – November 5, 2012 02:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Surprisingly I’m really enjoying this show. Could have a little something to do with Vincent being oh so hot. Yes I can be that shallow, but I also really like his voice.

    • Ol. Right there with you.

  • Great, not I have to check it out. I have been avoiding it because I’ve never been a KK fan, but I love BR from LOTS.

  • Ugh I’m conflicted I loved Legend of the Seeker and I’ve been hoping the leads( Craig Horner, Bridget Regan, Tabrett Bethel) would have their own show or recur on a show but I really don’t wanna watch B&B. Is the show any good??

    Comment by Jon – November 5, 2012 03:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The show is actually really good, I’m personally enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. I suggest you catch up on the series over at the CW website, they have all the episodes.

      Comment by Sarah – November 5, 2012 03:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s improving with each episode.

      Comment by Renee – November 5, 2012 04:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Tabrett Bethell needs to be on my TV

      Comment by Tusk – November 7, 2012 04:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I still haven’t gotten over the fact that LOTS was canceled. Bridget is such a great actress, she should get more roles. I’ve watched so much crap only to see her work. I wish she would get a show of her own, though. I’m not willing to watch B&B, I hate Kristin Kreuk.

    • You hate a person you don’t even know? Weird.

      • I dislike her work, genius.

        Comment by May – November 6, 2012 10:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ooooo. That’ll create some drama. Loving this show so much! But I hope it doesn’t get all cat-fightey over Vincent

  • I really like B&TB! Now I will like it even more!!! Bridget is awesome!!

  • I hope this doesn’t prevent Bridget Regan from scoring the lead role in CW’s new series “Amazon” as Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman! Regan would make an amazing Diana.

    Comment by AJ – November 5, 2012 04:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Ohh that sounds good this is the first I’m hearing about this Amazon show, that’s a better fit for her I like it. I hope this beauty and the beast is just a guest role without becoming a series Regular. Both Bridget and Craig need their own CW shows would be better if they could be together again.

  • Drama! Love this

    Comment by Susie – November 5, 2012 04:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • oh thats exciting! B&B is beginning some really interesting storylines (because, lets be real, the pilot was laughable). However, the past few episodes have been almost solid! Hopefully, this is them finding their groove (much like The Vampire Diaries in the beginning; not sure if anyone remembers the pilot and first few episodes but they are nothing like how the show is now)

  • Haven’t watched beastly but did watch legend of the seeker and Bridget is beautiful I love her with black hair. Funny but she was the reason I watched it. Maybe black with a lil red will be Hott. Ill tune in to show and see how it goes.

  • Ooooh, this will definitely be interesting. Especially since it’s a recurring role. I will enjoy her joining the show and seeing how everyone deals with her appearance.

  • This news makes me really excited!
    I know that many critics have given this show negative reviews, but it’s actually pretty good and keeps getting better each episode. In my opinion, the acting and storylines are better than Arrow’s.

    Comment by Ingo – December 10, 2012 09:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agree, I started watching both shows at the same time, gave up on Arrow and im stuck with BATB

  • I am excited about this but still hoping for Bridget to play Wonder Woman. Totally believe she is the one we have been waiting for.

  • I hope they cast her in the role of Amazon…She would make the perfect Wonder Woman
