It was Wonderful!! Well worth the wait!!! I LOVE IT! OK, the big screen helps, but I'd be gushing over a laptop also! There's just so much hope for a great Season!!
If it's going to be like this, You guys are going to love this season! It flows, great editing & storyline, & lots of action. Answers our questions while tying up loose ends! It no longer looks like the "poor, neglected relative in the CW family".
It's a heartbreak when JT tries to get Vincent to remember him! Also when Vincent tells Catherine "you're hot" but doesn't remember her! She tells him "you will". He can feel that they had a connection, hears her heartbeat. My heart skipped a beat when he chose to save her life instead of completing his mission.
And there is a Kiss! Not a passionate one like before. It's interesting to watch his face, he looks almost surprised! I'm sure he has flashes of memories! And, he doesn't run when she breaks down in tears & goes to him for comfort! And he obviously held her in bed till she fell asleep!!! [clothes on]
I love Bio-Dad!! I think he'll be a great addition to the cast! Even starting to like Gabe, he's trying SO hard to make up for his past bad deeds! Tess looks REALLY hot. Much better without Joe! Maybe Gabe will get lucky?
I am a Happy Beastie!!!
ps: Anybody have specific Spoiler questions can PM me. I don't want to spoil things for those that prefer to wait & see!
Couldn't agree more i've watched it 3 times already and my reactio is putting ig mildly. Jay and Kristin were spot in and it was achingly romantic agree to with the songs especially the one with Cat and Vincent I was like . And the very end shot was woww this season is going to be amazing
Ok - I managed to watch it online, though I will also buy it and also watch it on the CW website when it becomes available. I obviously won't reveal anything much but just wanted to say what I thought about it.
To begin with, it was very different (felt different) from the previous season. I really really liked it though and will re-watch it (many times) and let you know if I completely fall in love with it - all I have to say is positive about the episode, I think it is a brilliant start to the season, hopefully many people watched!
It did feel a lot more professional than before - it often felt amateurish before (translate, low budget) which it didn't do now at all. clearly they have invested more in it which is great!
It was really fast paced and so much was covered in the first episode which may be the reason why I didn't totally fall in love with it (though I repeat, I really really liked it!).
the opening sequence was not as epic or jaw dropping as people said before (i had really high expectations based on what i had read) but it was really good and specifically loved the song (or songs) choice and how it fit so well with what was happening and loved seeing cat having the dream (you will understand when u see it)
JT had some funny lines and Tess was totally not the <edited> she was portrayed as in one of the reviews, I really didnt see her act as a <edited> at all, just a concerned friend - have to say though most of the episode was not abotu any of the "secondary" characters, just trying to find vincent and understanding cat's emotional state as well as his new self
I really wasnt convinced about the explanation they gave about how the beast side of gabe died - though I may have just not got it. but felt a bit silly really
I liked how Vincent beast acted to save Cat's life (not much more can be said due to spoilers ) though the scene that she was saved reminded me a bit of smallville lol (well, just a couple of seconds reminded me of lana and clark lol but maybe it is just me!).
I thought the acting was very good, I thought Kristin was really good and I really liked the way we were made to understand her emotional state
the episode was definitely not sexy or romantic (though achingly romantic is a good description I think). it was also a bit sad, especially the kiss scene
all the reviews about catherine being desperate and creepy and spooky I do not understand at all, maybe I am creepy myself lol. to me she acted absolutely fine and yes, she did say a few times "we are meant to be" but I am sorry she just found again the love of her life, who she was looking for for 3 months and wasnt sure whether he was alive or not, I really didnt get the desperate reviews bit at all.
vincent looks like a really cool beast, looks sexy as a beast lol (i must be deranged). it is more difficult to sympathise with him as a beast than before, before when u saw the beast you felt sorry for it, not now!
really liked his new superpowers, though he did lose one of his powers (which I think there is a reason for, I think this will play out dramatically later in the season though I may be wrong). just think there is no reason why he would lose this power
i loved the catherine in the car scene, well acted! brilliant, real tension
fighting was solid, did not think there was too much of it either, a good balance!
the kiss was sad but appropriate - annoyed about one thing though, all i ll say is i hate cellphones, i mean seriously how realistic was it that she checked it at that particular time - ok it served its purpose but come on!!
murfield was explained reasonably well (Though still gaps)- glad they are gone, hope the new "enemy" is less pathetic and explained in more detail
when catherine first meets vincent, thats cool, liked it.
they clearly tried to show that vincent and catherine have a connection despite memory loss, which is good obviously. vincent changed when he saw or spoke about her.
i dont think vincent is now a completely different person, you dont hate him you feel sorry for him , because he is a lost soul without even knowing that. he is a soldier but you can see his old self whenever he interacts with catherine. you can still see through the soldier and see his humanity is there somewhere and u can totally see catherine will help him find himself again
i really loved the episode, really hopeful, just hope many people watched! so looking forward to hearing your views, oh and yolie you were right about something!
I have watched the WHOLE episode about 4 times now and have re-watched my fav scenes about 50 times!
The episode is going to make you laugh and cry all at once! I didn't cry during NTB but a couple of scenes in this episode actually made me cry!
It was fantastic! It feels like a different show! The editing was much better, I loved the songs played ( especially the one played during a certain VinCat scene ) and filming in NYC gave it a sense of authenticity!
You guys won't be disappointed and it's worth the wait! I only watched it since I'm an international beastie but have bought the itunes season pass so will get to watch it in HD tomorrow!!!
Oh Jay, how I have missed thee!!!
This season is going to be awesome based on today's episode!
Couldn't agree I live in the uk so we don't get it back u til next year but went on my favourite diwnload site just to check if they did have it and they did so far i've watched it 4 times and not once did Cat come a cross as being creepy or being to much in Vibcent's face I mean what she supposed to do after finding her love after 3 months and then have him nit remember their love and what they went through to be together the last scene of them together was done so beautifully and Jay and Kristin were just in playing that scene it brought a tear to my eye because you really feel for Cat and seeing the struggle to that Vince is feeling in that moment is just .
I thought too that Tess was going to be really nasty and <edited>y towards Cat was nothing like that and you understand why she says what she does but at the end if thd day shd is there for Cat.
Love the interaction between JT and Gabe nit as good as with Vincent but still good.
Agreed 100% It's like people have forgotten Catherine character. When she sets her mind to something, she's very headstrong in seeing it through. She was not creepy, so was just really really INTENSE and invested in finding Vincent. Yes she's was coming off too strong but that is to be expected and I'm sure now that's he's found, she will relax a little.
It was everything I expected to see and even more.
I am not the boss! I just want to express my feelings after watching this amazing episode! I don't have coherent thoughts yet but still... let me say the ending was Vincent was one hell of a scary beast! The way he walked out from the scene!
I have to admit I had tears when Catherine talked to his dad for the first time. Something was so emotional in that scene. Also when Heather asked Catherine if she was okay and she broke down in tears... she finally gave out all the emotions she had now that Vincent was standing there. I think she WAS OKAY for the first time in three months!
vincat scenes weren't overboard as some "critics" said... just enough amount "push-pull" between them for a 1st episode, that small minute where he sensed her heartbeat & breathing was cute.. I found the one-liner's here funny, so many to quote from the different characters. the end scene the way Jay just looks at her struggling to remember her at the same time can tell the connection is still there was great acting.
V looked a little cold, distant, secretive, mysterious but in his scenes with Cat I felt he was curious and sad too. Maybe now that he found a woman who claims to be his love he will be interested to find out more about himself, his own life before his missions.
alwayscrazedbatbfan: Food for Beastie Thought and Consumption---At what moment did you KNOW that VINCAT were meant to be? Was it a particular line or scene? Did they fall for one another at the same time? WAS it fate or choice?

BeastieBoy: As soon as Cat said "You're him" in the Pilot.

alwayscrazedbatbfan: Oh, but that MOMENT on Vincent's bed when he tends to her wounds. And then when he tells his story, and she touches his face JUST so sad and feeling his pain. The Pilot was just MADE for those special VinCat Moments!

Feb 22, 2017 21:05:11 GMT -5
alwayscrazedbatbfan: Would LOVE to have more Beasties involved in the rewatches. You really DO get so much more out of the episodes when knowing where the series is going to go. There is SO MUCH I MISSED in 2012 when it first came on!

alwayscrazedbatbfan: Hey, DVD box set of the series being released!! Anyone know what is specifically contained in the box set as far as extras???
May 3, 2017 16:44:31 GMT -5
AlisongladaboutSeason4: I'm sorry to say that the complete lack of info about the special features on the Complete Series Box set leads me to believe that there will be NO new content, just a repeat of the special features on the individual series box sets. Hope I'm wrong though!
