The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - View From The Couch -

Some of the most clas­sic fairy tales, par­tic­u­larly those with a pen­chant for hor­ror, get a re­work­ing in this CBS All Ac­cess se­ries. “The Three Lit­tle Pigs,” “Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood” and “Hansel and Gre­tel” are the ones re­booted in this in­au­gu­ral round, with Billy Mag­nussen – who also will ap­pear in the next James Bond movie – as a hu­man in­car­na­tion of the Wolf who threat­ened Red Rid­ing Hood. He’s a teacher who preys upon one of his stu­dents (Danielle Camp­bell), but there’s also an­other hu­man­ized wolf around ... a vengeance-seek­ing restau­ra­teur (James Wolk, “Zoo”). Cre­ator and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Kevin Wil­liamson again casts Paul Wes­ley (“The Vam­pire Diaries”) here, with Da­nia Ramirez, Sam Jaeger (“Par­ent­hood”) and Kim Cat­trall also fea­tured. The show’s sec­ond sea­son be­gins stream­ing soon. ★★★ (Not rated: AS, P, V)
