    Thread: Grimm (NBC)

      Anyone else watching? I'm enjoying it so far, but... seems like they could run out of steam pretty quickly.

      I watched the pilot, but it wasn't working for me. Neither is the other fairy tale show, "Once Upon A Time."

      I'm watching it, but only because it's filmed here and I can go "hey I know that place!"

      My wife and I are watching both... I'd say "Once Upon A Time" is getting better... Grimm is staying about the same - decent, but not great. Still curious to see if they can take it somewhere good. I'm not optimistic, just hopeful.

      I actually think Grimm is getting better, I'm enjoying it so far. I watched one episode of "Once upon a time" but it did nothing for me so I haven't seen another.

      Been watching it to get my supernatural fix between episodes of the walking dead.

      I think its ok but the whole detective plot line has just been done too much to make it exceptional. Can't figure out what the deal is with the police chief guy though.

      Grimm is okay. My wife likes it better than I do. I think there are better freak of the week type shows out there, like Fringe.

      Once Upon a Time is painfully bad in just about every conceivable way. The acting and dialog are just so .

      So Grimm is back on. I was super excited for this show when it first started, but unfortunately I'm seriously disappointed with it ...

      I love that its based and filmed in Portland, but its just not holding my attention. I think the story lines are pretty weak. A new "villain" every episode makes it hard to get attached to the story. Every episode is big scary mysterious new villain, call that one dude to help, figure out what villain "is", defeat villain.

      Blah.

      The only really good character is the werewolf guy. They should spin him off into his own show and let the rest die in an industrial waste accident.

      They haven't touched on his commanding officer for a while now, last I remember was the bee episode. It would help break up the monotony of MOTW.

      Nothing with the hot blonde demon chick lately either.

      Then again, we're four episodes behind on the DVR having lost interest.

      One of the co creators of the show is David Greenwalt, one of the guys responsible for BTVS/Angel. If you liked those shows odds are you'll like this one as well, the same style of humor, and pacing is evident in this show.

      I fully expect this show to develop like those did, these seemingly random/stand alone episodes will tie in further down the road. Scary blonde vs lady with the bees, the beaver/repair guy has already shown up in another episode, and of course the chief of police/commissioner has his agenda... I wouldn't be surprised if Grimms wife gets dragged into this world somehow...

      Another reason I was super excited for this show.

      I'm a HUGE BTVS fan.... Angel was OK, but not as good as Buffy. I really HOPE this show develops the way those shows did. I'm just not seeing it yet. Fingers crossed!

      Everyone still watching? I think it keeps getting better. The last two episodes have been great, especially the coins and the bit about hitler.

      Still watching, the show has certainly gotten less campy than it was that's for sure. Between the human organs episode, the black widow and most recently the fighting one it seems to be trying to find its niche.

      Even at its worst, it's still better then any reality show.

      Still watching, glad the use of CGI is dropping to where it's only for the quick glimpses .

      I'm still struggling with the plot line, as you perfectly summed up here. We are still watching it because we're from the PNW and it's fun to see the places and scenery...but I'm definitely not hooked.

      I think its all starting to come together now. I mean he's new to the whole Grimm thing so I think its been a learning experience for the character and the viewers. Now you have the while plot with Juliette building and the progression of Monroe, and according to the preview of next weeks episode we will get an idea of what is going on with the police chief and the demon chick. Also when Monroe told him about the Grimm getting killed, I think that's a hint at what's to come.

      My only confusion is why all the monsters are afraid of him; aside from the Grimm's history he appears to be just a normal human being.

      They look at him as a Grimm. Remember, to them all Grimms are only out to kill all vermin.

      most of it would be the history of the grimm and the stories that they have heard. Also, if you think about the fight club episode, Monroe told him to dig down and summon help from his ancestors. It seemed to me that he may have extraordinary skills that he doesn't understand or know yet.

      Just my thoughts, could be wrong though. In the least he still has a trailer full of badass ancient weapons.

      I hope his wife and partner get the truth this season, it's driving me nuts that they don't know.

      Ah good, it's back on again! If you like this one, also check out once upon a time... similar in cheese level, but some cool story telling.

      The season starts this early?

      Wow... Is NBC running a full season (20+ eps) or will it be less than that?
