  • Tennant's appearance is surprising only in that she hasn't done that much in recent years and most of the talent on The Beast are from the Chicago area, so it surprised me to have someone I consider a Hollywood actress show up

      The latest episode of The Beast had a surprising guest star. Victoria Tennant, remembered for The Winds of War and her marriage to Steve Martin, appears in Infected, the mother of a boy supposedly infected with some deadly disease. The infectors are demanding she give them a host of jewels that belong to the company she works for.

      of the talent on The Beast are from the Chicago area, so it surprised me to have someone I consider a Hollywood actress show up.

      After a dramatic opening foot/bicycle chase, there’s a nice scene with series star Patrick Swayze as Federal Agent Charles Barker and the boy playing Tennant’s son. It’s very endearing. It even leaves Barker’s eavesdropping partner, Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel) smiling. What they soon learn, is that this isn’t the ...


      • first time someone has been infected by thieves demanding money or property, which widens the case significantly.

        Swayze is just so sweet with the boy. He connects well with children, and it shines through in his Barker role, even though Barker is a bit of a tough nose.

        There’s some surprising moments here, such as when Barker confronts the owner of the jewels. He’s not the least bit understanding, and Barker stuns by slapping him and making

        a closing comment that rivets.

        Mostly, The Beast: Infected shows us the softer side of Charles Barker, while also adding a new piece to the puzzle — Dove’s brother. Once again, things aren’t always what they seem.

        The Beast: Infected was a very good episode. Swayze continues to outshine the show itself. He’s a star, much greater than the quality of the program, but the series is striving to catch up to him. It’s also an exciting watch!
