TELL ME A STORY
December 5, 2019  | By David Bianculli

CBS All Access, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SEASON PREMIERE: The concept of this series – taking fairy tales and adapting them as very modern allegorical dramas – was much better than its execution last year. But now, for Season 2, it has a new chance to reboot and readjust. The primary plot threads, this season, borrow from three very familiar stories: Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. That last one puts a gender-reversal spin on it – a spin that looks a lot like a female Phantom of the Opera.
