Grimm: Discussion Thread
Posted 12 May 2011 - 08:03 PM
“Grimm” is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories -- they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli “Turn The Beat Around”) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, “Grey’s Anatomy”) arrives, Nick's life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors -- and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby (“Lincoln Heights”), Bitsie Tulloch (“Quarterlife”), Silas Weir Mitchell (“Prison Break”), Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star. “Grimm” is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (“Hot in Cleveland”) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (“National Treasure,” “Angel”) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland (“My Name Is Earl”) is the director.

Claire Coffee (Nadine, GH) is in this.
The series premiere of Grimm surprised to the upside, notching a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. That was the best non-sports Friday rating on any network since 12/31/10 (New Year's Rockin' Eve).

Nadine from GH! She looked so familiar, but I couldn't place her.

I honestly thought they were the same show
I watched this and I wasn't impressed at all. Once Upon a Time was much better, imo. People must be interested in the whole fairy tale thing though, considering that both these shows got decent ratings.

I was checking out the ratings at tvbythenumbers and I think that you are right that Grimm is NBC's only "hit" so far this season. If it continues to do well, then NBC will have to move it to a better night or it will wither and die on Fridays.
Am I wrong in thinking this is NBC's only hit of the fall season? Not that one episode makes a hit, but this is the best rated new show they have, right? I wonder if it would be in their best interest to move it to a different night.

I liked it more than I expected! Love the style, and it was actually kinda scary. if we're comparing them (though they're so different in tone) i think I prefered it to Once Upona Time which ahd a fun pilot but I can see falling apart in all its whimsy and cutesiness. We'll see.

I think it clearly has a serial aspect that will over-arc the episodes, much like angel did. It also had the CSi/Criminal Minds mini-arc feel as well.

I thought that it was another strong episode. The show still has that dark scary visual that I love. The story was well done. Gilda was foolish, but I loved that she got a gun and went to rescue her boyfriend. The father realizing that Nick could see their real appearances. The mother, not the father, as the misguided parent. The Wolf is a wonderful supporting character. His reluctance to help and then taunting Marie was good stuff. I cracked up when he tore the guy's arm out and then said that he "went too far." I was sorry that Marie died, but I liked that she went down fighting to the last. I like that we are shown that Nick and his partner are good friends, always teasing each other, but very supportive of each other. I also like that the partner is not played for the oblivious fool. He does have a role in the helping solve the crime of the week. The boss and the blonde woman are strong mysterious and menacing enemies. The only weak link is the girlfriend. She is not very charismatic. The less she has to do the better.
I fear for Grimm if it remains on Friday though. It is just not a goodnight for a show targeting younger audience.
