It's such a natural it's downright devilish. Or, if you will, beastly.
Absent a compelling core romance, and absent a passably beast-like beast, you're left with a sodden police procedural.
Kreuk and Ryan keep their faces straight and their bodies hard, which is what CW shows are mostly about, and all in all, it could be a lot dumber than it is.
There's no scene-to-scene logic, just looking and yearning and styling to sad rock music.
