I was and still am a big fan of the show. I could listen to Vincent talk for hours. I love the relationship aspect of the show but Vincent was a powerful force representing the ideal of love. I would have given Ron Perlman an Oscar for his role. Recently I have had a chance to review the three seasons. What a treat! I never thought I could watch season three again but somehow I could and I think it is because they stayed true to the character of Catherine. I did not like the killing but I believe that in time Vincent would have been less violent and more engaged in the raising of his son. How he dealt with Snow showed that he was capable of using cunning rather than force.
I did like Diana in second viewing. I remember her well but it was more like 'how dare she' during the original episodes but 20 years later I am older and wiser and more capable of forgiveness. Linda Hamilton has acknowledged her addictions and bipolar issues. This could have made for a very difficult time on set for her with a pregnancy. She appears with Vincent on Season two DVD and shows herself differently but committed to the show.
Before getting back into this show, I read a short story in which someone fast forwards 20 years. Catherine survived her morphine overdose and was put into a witness protection program to save her life. She finally returns to NYC and somehow is reunited with Vincent and her son. Because I read this first, I think it helped me to enjoy season three feeling that she was out there somewhere. . I would love to see that made in to a movie to give closure to all BATB fans.
