With the new Fall season only a couple of months away--or, in the case of Grimm, even less than that--it's time for previews and extended trailers to start surfacing.
Vincent (Jay Ryan) stars in Beauty and the Other Beauty, er, I mean, Beauty and the Beast.

A few of these worth noticing:
666 Park Avenue (2:20) comes across very glossy, with the improbably beautiful twentysomething denizens eying each other while Terry O'Quinn glowers.
Arrow (3:38) does a good job of setting up Oliver Queen as a man apart (with great abs), changed by a dark experience as a castaway and driven to fight evil.
Beauty & the Beast (5:00) shows us Catherine's big backstory moment, an early encounter with military experiment victim Vincent as a what she thought was an (avenging) "beast," and then the lead-up to her reencountering him as a part of her work as a police detective. Considering it's Kreuk confronting a visibility-shy young buck of a superhero on The CW, it takes a while to stop expecting Lex Luthor to wander into frame.
Defiance (1:30) also has a preview of the world where both Trion gamers and Syfy viewers will be dealing with the problems of humans and aliens sharing a world together next spring. There seems to be lots of shooting-things going on, at least on the game side, but you get a glimpse of how the live action people and settings port over onto the 3D game imagery.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (0:30) has a brief sneak of this fall's season 5, featuring lots more Darth Maul. So, here's what I'm wondering... are Mr. Maul and Mr. O'Quinn the only stars we're going to be watching this fall that look like they're over 30 and have actually seen something of the world(s)?
