Grimm

Postby Lausten » Sun Feb 26, 2012 6:38 pm

Anybody following the new show "Grimm". It has a young cop who finds out he is a descendant of the Grimm brothers, and that gives him powers to see the actual characters from those stories. To the rest of us, they look like regular people. Each week he solves a crime involving werewolves, the three bears or whatever.

Slowly being revealed also, is that his boss, the police chief, is part of some sort of consortium of some of the characters, some sort of underworld crime ring or something. Only we see this, the Grimm cop doesn't know it yet. Last night, one of the creatures, a wolf man of some sort went rogue. First the police chief just threatened him, but he didn't comply, so the chief goes to confession. That's right, Catholic church, in the booth, confession. He tells the priest that this guy needs to be "taken care of". The priest says, "I'll get changed". You don't see what the priest turns into, but it involves lots of screaming and legs kicking up in the air.

It should be interesting to see where they go with this.

Yeah, I've been watching the show. It's kind of hit-or-miss, I either love an episode or hate it. Overall I'd give the series a B/B+. I'm just getting tired of him running to the trailer every week to read about a new monster. He really needs to just read through all that stuff over a long weekend or something.

I don't like shows that essentially "write over" more interesting stuff. For instance, this one turns "the Brother's Grimm" into monster hunters or something, right? I prefer their real history, myself -- much more interesting to me.

Likewise, I don't like most monster movies involving vampires, for the same reason. And if anyone here doesn't like the Twilight movies because "vampires sparkle," then they understand what I'm trying to say.

My wife and I are hooked on the show. Looks like next season will be its last.
