- OP, I am beginning to get in to it. Friday night's episode about the black widow woman was quite creepy and good. And it doesn't hurt that the lead is awfully cute.
- Af for Bitsy Turloch, the actress who plays lead's girl friend, she apparently has a lot of credits. I had never heard of her before Grimm.
- I noticed the promos now feature the friend instead of the lead.
- I didn't like the character of the friend, but he's growing on me.
The lead actor is the weakest link.
- get rid of the wife and give the Chief more air time ...
- LOL R5
- Seriously, how is this show doing ratings wise? I haven't heard or read a thing about where it stands.
- I adore this show. It isn't great yet, but it has so much potential.
It reminds me a bit of what you would get if Buffy grew up and became a detective.
- I for one love the lead. I think he's adorable and sexy. Short but I'd suck him dry.
- The werewolf guy reminds me of the young Bruce Dern
- Watch this week for a scene to see the shirtless, sweaty Captain.
- I am really starting to like the show. And who would have thought that Hitler was a beast?
- Any ideas on what triggered his ability to see the creatures' true selves? It started right after his partner took a photograph of him and while they were discussing why he didn't look at other women.
- Silas Weir Mitchell, the friend, is hot. The lead is boring.
- Mitchell was on [italic]Prison Break[/italic], as was Reggie Lee, who plays Sgt. Wu.
- Never mind, it was his aunt being on the verge of death that triggered it.
- Prior to her death, I thought his aunt told him he was the last of the Grimms. However, last night his werewolf buddy told him a Grimm was decapitated in Amsterdam recently. So I guess Giuntola is not the last of the Grimms after all.
- Love the show and think the lead is super-sexy.
- I just want to see Nick and Monroe have hot sweaty doggy sex by the light of a full moon
- [quote]Prior to her death, I thought his aunt told him he was the last of the Grimms
No, she told him there were others, but she wasn't in contact with them, so she couldn't tell him how many there were.
- Just got picked up for a second season.
- Awesome, r21.
Hope the lead takes some acting lessons over the summer break.
- Any ideas on what the captain is up to? Since his name is Renard, and they have him speaking French, I assume the writers are working up something to do with Reynard the fox. However, I've never read French folk tales. All I know about Reynard is that he's a trickster figure.
- I love Grimm. David Giuntoli is one of us, you know.
- I love Guintoli. I would suck him off all night...he is so cute.
- So glad it got a second season. :)
- Anyone still watching?
I HATE what they did to the black cop.
I used to really like him, but he's been so useless the last few episodes that they might as well kill him off.
- I agree the black partner is being wasted. I do like the addition of the girl whose running the curio/Monster shop. The werewolf buddy seems to be very smitten with her. Tonight's episode was good though. The gold nugget growing in the woman's neck was just far enough out there for me.
Here's a sneak preview of next week's show.
- Why hasn't Juliette been more vocal asking what the fuck has been going on?
- Wow, tonight's show was intense. New fetish anyone? Force feed someone. Ick. Love the werewolf's new love interest but I'd rather the show were theirs and not the Grimm guy. He's cute, though. Maybe he'll get better. Loved the werewolf being upset that Nick called his girlfriend rather than him. "You? He called you?" He truly is the best thing in the show.
- Strange eating habits
- So is every criminal a "fairy tale creature"?
- some good guys are too.
- Is the lead a real actor? He seems like an athlete they gave a tv show to, hoping his sports fans will watch. He's attractive, but I like people who can really act. It's not fair pretty boys get leading roles in tv shows while interesting guys like Alby on Big Love can't find steady work.
- Grimm is Awesome! I plan on watching every episode until the end. What I dont understand is, if the chief detective "Sean" is a bad guy why dont we seem him transform into some kind of creature. Does anybody understand this? It would be extremely lame if they eventually show him as a creature type thing because that means Nick never noticed him and that wouldn't make since.
- I'm really enjoying Grimm. I didn't watch it when it started, but caught up with it in the last few weeks. I don't really get the flak being thrown at the lead actor.
- I love the show. A great mystery about the key and why it's so important. I also like Sean, the chief detective who's scheming behind the scenes. Nice guest appearance of 'Nan Flanagan' (Jessica Stuck) from True Blood. The special effect after the witch digested the Grimm's blood was cool.
- The Chief has transformed into a creature, but not in front of Nick. Nick does not know who/what the Chief really is, and the Chief doesn't want to give himself away.
Juliet annoys the living daylights out of me. I don't know how Nick gets it up for her. It's like she keeps his balls in her purse or something.
- I love how strong the women opponents are, especially the fire dancer and Munroe's ex-girlfriend. I like them more than the detective, but good has to triumph I suppose.
- I really dont remember the chief Sean Renard shown as a creature. What episode is it in so I can see it.
- I don't remember the Chief changing, or it ever being implied that he changed, into a creature form.
I think I'm going to have to go back and watch Caprica.
- This is from Wikipedia:
Sasha Roiz as Captain Sean Renard, Nick's politically adept superior officer and a member of the creature community of unknown origin. Nick is totally unaware of his status and he seems to be a potential threat. In episode 12, he is addressed as Your Highness, further implying that he belongs to royalty in the creature community. He seems to want a return to the old ways.
The Captain is a creature and I believe we did see him morph into one but I can't recall which episode he did so.
- I don't recall the captain morphing into anything else yet.
- Only 4 episodes until the Grimm Season 1 finale.
- Roger Bart is going to play a grizzly Adams type guy, don't know which episode.
- The cops seem to have jurisdiction in an awful lot of forested areas. Do Portland's city limits really include that much wilderness?
- Sneak Peek at April 27, 2012's episode.
- Good episode tonight.
- I could be wrong about this but I thought the chief of police morphed into a creature in the first or second episode. He was talking to that hot blonde lawyer.
Bitsy Tulloch, always in the kitchen
- [quote]Why hasn't Juliette been more vocal asking what the fuck has been going on?
I'm too busy cooking up breakfasts.
Bitsy... do I even register in this show??
- I also like Rosalie and think she and Monroe are cute together. Juliet is meh.
I like that writers are exploring how Grimms haven't always been the good guys despite thinking they were. Lots to explore. Verrat is very fascist, and we can draw many parallels to what they do. Are we to assume that Verrat is responsible for Hitler coming to power? We've already been told the Hitler was a Wesen. At some point I'd like to rewatch this season to pick up more of the mythology.
- I found a [italic]Grimm[/italic] Wiki. It looks like a good resource.
- You senseless queens actually watch that show? I bet you all loved Pan Am too.
- Oh goodie. A troll. -rolls eyes-
- Verrat is the German word for betrayal.
- R55, I've often wondered if I'd get more out of the show if I knew German... or if I'd just roll my eyes more.
- [quote]I could be wrong about this but I thought the chief of police morphed into a creature in the first or second episode. He was talking to that hot blonde lawyer.
You're not wrong, that's exactly what happened. My understanding of why Nick can't see his true form is because he can only see the Wesen when their emotions get the better of them, and the chief cop is powerful and good at keeping his emotions under control.
I'm enjoying this show, too. It's really grown on me. I love Monroe, and love the addition of Rosalie as well. From what I can tell, that's a popular opinion. I think David Giuntoli is fine, not the greatest actor, but he works in the role. And he's pretty, so he gets points for that from me, because I'm shallow.
- [quote]I've often wondered if I'd get more out of the show if I knew German.
It helps a little. My German is rusty, but in "Last Grimm Standing," when it turned out that Leo Taymor was running the Loewen games, I knew that Loewen = lions, and that's why Taymor was named Leo.
- The Police Chief has never morphed into a creature.
- Monroe comes to dinner Friday night.
- [bold]It’s official: Grimm is the best fairy tale show on TV right now[/bold]
After weeks of begging for the Beaver folk to return to Grimm, our wish has finally been granted. This week was all about Beaver people and courage. Beaver courage, which was kind of shown in this episode. But mostly it was Pilates Wolf and Prince Eric doing karate in their garage (ok it's in the woods, but come on, that whole training scene was dripping of Step Brothers). Grimm has really found it's stride and it's just a whole lotta fun to watch.
This week we got to meet the fairy tale trolls, who are, of course, super possessive of bridges. A troll kills a beaver, and a little beaver witness has to find his inner strength to testify. Of course the trolls pull the dickish move every and call the Reapers to come in and kill the Grimm, Nick. But apparently Nick is pretty good at hand-to-scythe combat and easily kills the two big bad reapers.
Then Nick sends the two Reaper heads back to Germany as a "message" to the other Reapers: Don't fuck with Prince Eric. Which makes total sense as he is a learned officer of the law and knows that standard mail makes for great head delivery. But this makes sense as it's in canon for Nick being the worst cop in the whole world.
And so it goes. What we're taking away from this episode is that Grimm has now figured out a way to effortlessly braid in new "monsters of the week" while playing with the fairy tale world they've spent many, many episodes building. Instead of just mumbling a handful of German jargon, we're playing around with characters and dynamics we're familiar with. It's great, seriously great. All this series needs to do now is find a purpose for Nick's lady friend and we're sold. The journey has been long, but it's starting to pay off. Which makes us happy, both for Grimm and our Friday nights.
- bump for Grimm discussion
- 'die Häßlichen' (used for the troll species) means 'the ugly ones' in German.
- [bold]NBC Eyes August Premieres For New Comedy ‘Go On’ & Returning Drama ‘Grimm’[/bold]
NBC‘s freshman drama Grimm received a very early renewal in mid-March. And the network’s comedy pilot Go On starring Matthew Perry was given an unusually early series pickup 10 days ago. I hear both are being eyed for an early launch in August, following NBC’s coverage of the Summer Olympics in London. NBC, which is seeking a ratings turnaround, had been contemplating an early rollout for a number of series to take advantage of the monster promotional platform the Olympics provide. To make an August launch date, Grimm and Go On are expected to start production early. I hear Grimm writers are already working, while writers on Go On, created by Scott Silveri and directed by Todd Holland, will convene as early as next week.
The single-camera Go On stars Perry as an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who, trying to move on from a loss, finds solace from the members of his mandatory support group. An August premiere will certainly get the comedy on the air ahead of similarly themed single-camera pilot Rebounding, which is in serious consideration for a series pickup at Fox. In addition to Grimm, also expected to return earlier than this season are NBC’s midseason reality flagship The Voice and Broadway drama Smash, which are being considered for a fall launch.
- [bold]Meet 'Grimm's' Man Behind the Monsters[/bold]
Every episode, Grimm fans are taken in by its many monsters and twists on the fairytales they’ve grown up on. Make-up FX artist Barney Burman is the man who takes the series’ monsters from the script pages and on to the screen.
With his own shop, Proteus Make-up FX, in North Hollywood, Burman comes from an accomplished line of make-up FX artists. His grandfather made masks and props for the original Wolfman and Twilight Zone series. His father, Emmy-winner Thomas R. Burman, worked on Body Snatchers, Star Kid, Powder, Carrie 2 and The X Files, among others.
Burman’s own credits include How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Planet of the Apes, Men in Black 2, Haunted Mansion, and JJ Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek, which earned the make-up FX artist an Academy Award.
“The Star Trek film was definitely a huge challenge,” Burman tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It was the biggest film I had done to date and it was about six months of sleeping four hours a night and just keep going and going and going and it took so much of my focus -- just a crazy amount of energy that it took to get that done.”
Grimm’s production schedule is challenging, as well. Burman and his team may have as few as four days to create a monster from scratch. In comparison, Burman says he’d usually ask for at least three weeks for a straight make-up assignment. He must also deal with distance, since the series shoots in Portland.
“It really does vary quite a bit per episode, which is one of the things I really love about it is that it isn’t just kind of doing the same thing,” he says of the many creatures for the series. “It’s creating over and over again each episode. Often we’ve had situations where we’ve had to make a full dead body in five days or we did an episode with some Bigfoot characters and we had four days to get our first one done. I’ve had up to about seven or eight people in my shop in L.A. plus as many as three or four people up in Portland all working at the same time.”
For Friday’s Cinderella-inspired episode titled “Happily Ever Aftermath,” the series tasked Burman with creating the “Murcielago,” a bat-like creature with red eyes, rows of teeth and a death-inducing scream.

- Give the Girl A Hand
Preview for Friday's Grimm
- Giuntoli wants a little Grimm Time
- I am so excited about this week's... he finally tells Juliette!
- Finally saw last weeks. Loved how much Monroe got to do.
- As was mentioned in the other thread, the show's production logo in the closing credits is a portrait of two men who are obviously a couple. It turns out Sean Hayes (a.k.a. Jack McFarland) is one of the producers of the show, and the other producers is also gay. I think the portrait is of the other producer and his partner.
So this is actually a "gay" show, of sorts.
Wish it had more gay content, but I like the show so far.
- [bold]Grimm' season finale: Will Nick tell Juliette the truth!? [/bold]
The season finale of NBC’s surprise hit Grimm is upon us, and though Nick (David Giuntoli) has managed to keep his Grimm reality from Juliette thus far, might he be out of options?
In this exclusive clip from the season ender, Nick’s a little concerned after his girlfriend gets scratched by a cat — but we’re not talking about your average fluffer. In fact, he’s so concerned that he makes a shocking move: He tells her Adalind is a witch.
- Okay, I can't handle it anymore. I'm in love with the werewolf.
- Great finale.
This show has gotten really good. I'm REALLY looking forward to next season.
- Me too R75!
- Now, THAT'S how you do a season finale!
This has replaced Once Upon a Time, as the best fairy tale show.
I have LOVED Grimm more and more, and find Once to be more and more boring.
- Season 1 in its entirety is on line. For those who wanted to watch or those who want to watch again, check out Grimm!
- Obviously, his gf will not remember anything when she recovers.
- Is Silas Weir Mitchell related to Tyne Daly? He looks just like her.
- I say turn the gf into a witch and force Nick to kill her. Then let the police chief move in and comfort Nick.
- Tell the damn girlfriend. And then either incorporate her into the story somehow, or have her leave (divorce? Be killed?) because right now she's utterly useless.
- It appears the girlfriend is being turned, somehow. So will she now be one of the monsters that he kills? Ala Angel and Buffy? These are Angel and Buffy people working on this show. Will she be evil next season? Will there be a little demon inside her? (As opposed to a baby.)
That might be fun.
- r81,somewhere there's some '50 Shades of Gay' novel hidden in your post.
- They really dropped the ball by not ending the season with 'Mom, Mom, ... Mommy?'
- Doesn't the show start again in August?
- Yes. I'm hopeful that the short-turnaround time doesn't cause a drop in quality in the scripts and such. And I'm hopeful they pick up some more viewers.
- I didn't know that David did a print ad for Weight Watchers.
- Interesting find!
- Wow... starts right after the Olympics! A new season already!!
- I've never seen this show, but I've just discovered who this David person is because last weekend I had to listen to him and a bunch of his friends talk very loudly and tediously at a bakery/coffeeshop about LA, make-up, being treated like a VIP, etc., while people were coming up and asking for photos. (They were sitting outside in about the most visible location possible.)
I don't mean to be a downer or anything but I was annoyed. And yes I did get a slight gay vibe from him (as in the eye contact thing).
- Oh, and to answer R46, Portland has a huge park within city limits (one of the largest in the country) that is entirely forest and completely undeveloped except for some bike and hiking trails.
- Thanks, r92.
- Up until now, we’ve come to know Grimm’s steely Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz) as a man of many secrets. And he has pretty much everyone fooled.
To remind you just how much intrigue surrounds the character, Celebuzz has an exclusive video refresher of the many faces of Capt. Renard.
What do we know so far about the shady cop?
We know he’s some kind of royal with several beasts acting (and killing) on his behalf. It was clear from the show’s pilot that he has some plan for Nick, but that hasn’t become totally clear yet.
He’s a megalomaniac. He’s a caring cop. He has it in for the Grimms, but he has protected Nick’s life on occasion. Who’s the real Renard and what’s his endgame?
On Season 2, James Frain joins as Renard’s brother and it seems that there’s going to be some familial challenges to Renard’s power.
So, before that and other turns are revealed on Grimm’s second season debuting Monday, August 13 at 10PM on NBC, take a look at Celebuzz’s exclusive video of Renard’s journey so far.
- After last season's cliffhanger ending, it's been a long couple of months for fans of NBC's "Grimm," but the wait is finally over. The show returns Monday, August 13 at 10 p.m. ET, and HuffPost TV has an exclusive first look at the supernatural series' dramatic season premiere, which sees Nick (David Giuntoli) coming face to face with the mother he believed dead for the past 18 years (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio).
There's not much time for a tearful reunion, however, since the arrival of Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) sends Momma Burkhardt into "alpha Grimm" mode; as far as she knows, Grimms and Wesen do not socialize -- Grimms cut their heads off. Awkward.
Here's the episode synopsis for "Grimm" 201, entitled "Bad Teeth":
[italics]After their face-off with Kimura (guest star Brian Tee), Nick (David Giuntoli) finds himself trying to come to grips with the return of his mother, Kelly Burkhardt (guest star Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). A trail of brutal murders unveils a foreign conspiracy to hunt down Nick, leading to several revelations about his past. Meanwhile, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) still lies in her mysteriously-induced coma as Rosalee (Bree Turner) and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) work tirelessly to bring her out of it safely. Elsewhere, Hank (Russell Hornsby) struggles with the shocking truths he’s recently seen and Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) deals with unexpected family issues when his estranged brother (guest star James Frain) comes back into his life. Reggie Lee also stars. [/italics]
"Grimm" Season 2 premieres August 13 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, before moving to its regular timeslot of Fridays at 9 p.m. ET beginning September 14.
- I love, Love LOVE "Grimm" and everything about it!! The scripts are fantastic (Out of the ones I've seen thus far, I love the episode about the three coins that have a weird effect on people the best. I like this episode the best because Nick finally gets some feedback on his past and because of the ending of the episode where Nick is playing that old film of Hitler giving a speech and then sees him to morph into the vicious beat that he truly is. How appropriate in a metaphorical way!), the acting is great, and the special effects are awesome! Even when I know something scary is about to happen I've still jumped at times. Now if you excuse me, I've got to get going and get all caught up ont he episodes before season two starts this Monday as I stil have several to go. Nothing like a "Grimm" marathon, though, right? ;=)
- Brand new episode tomorrow night!!!
- Bump - season 2 starts in 1 hour!
- Nice start. I liked it. Not enough werewolf though.
- Decent episode. I liked his Mom and his two Vesen friends nearly getting into it.
I wonder what the big secret McGuffin will turn out to be?
- I get the sense that Mama Grimm is actually a bad guy. She wants those coins a little too much. I am looking forward to her battle with Mama Hexenbeast!
- I enjoyed the show but I didn't enjoy seeing Nick's partner squeezed out by his mother. The partner was hardly even in the episode. Maybe next week, with Nick charged with murder, the partner will step up and try to prove the charges are wrong.
- FOX was the number one network in adults 18-49 and total viewers.
The premiere of Hotel Hell earned a 1.9 rating, and was the highest rated new series debut on any network this summer among Adults 18-49. Hell's Kitchen returned to earn a 2.7, which was up a tenth from its last original, which earned a 2.6 two weeks ago.
[bold]On NBC, the premiere of Stars Earn Stripes scored a 1.7 18-49 rating, down -23% from last summer's debut of Love in the Wild. The Season 2 premiere of Grimm earned a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, only a tenth lower than the season one premiere , which earned a 2.1 18-49 rating(its highest-rated episode to date). [/bold]It seems most of your predictions were a touch optimistic.
On ABC, Bachelor Pad earned a 1.2, up two tenths from last week's series-low 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. The Glass House earned a 0.7 rating, up a tenth from last week's series low 0.6. adults 18-49 rating.
On The CW, Remodeled earned a 0.1 rating.
CBS was all repeats for the evening.
- So, the Grimms are Templars who hid some holy and powerful artifact?
- Finally saw the episodes. I thought it was great. And the lead is sexier than ever.
- Grimm's premiere was unfortunately up against the Teen Wolf season finale on MTV and Alphas on Sci-Fi which had to have taken a slight bite out of its audience.
I ended up watching Teen Wolf and streaming Grimm later on.
- I watched Alphas and streamed Grimm later.
- I did the opposite.
- LOVE me some Grimm... and glad they moved it to Monday (with reruns on Friday from my cable provider) Monroe rocks the fox!
- The move to Mondays is only temporary. It goes back to Friday nights on Sept. 14.
- Grimm Blog
- Excellent episode tonight. Lots of interesting twists.
- Interesting reveals, though kind of expected, about Police Captain Sexy.
- btw: Sasha Roiz will be live tweeting during tonight's episode on the west coast.
Ok I've got big thumbs, a small phone and I haven't seen the episode yet. Be gentle with me tonight tweeters.
“@GrimmFan777: Please tell me you don't turn in to a women in tonights episode.” that's episode 6. But I begin lactating in tonight's
off to ice my thumbs in preparation
- Why do I like Monroe's girlfriend more than Nick's?
- I hate the new voiceover for the intro. I hope that only runs for a while to introduce new viewers to the Grimmverse.
- R115, I like her better too.
- Lost fans, get ready to howl. As TVLine previously reported, Mark Pellegrino – who played Jacob on the late ABC drama – will guest-star on tonight’s Grimm.
And we’ve got your exclusive first look at the man in action. Pellegrino’s character, Jarold Kempfer, is a high school pal of Hank’s whose daughter goes missing. From what we hear, Hank doesn’t know Jarold is a coyotl, or coyote-like creature. Maybe in the shot below he’s about to find out?
Take a look at the photo and then hit the comments with your thoughts about how tonight’s episode may play out!
Grimm airs tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
- So no Grimm for me, tonight. When there's a hurricane coming the weathermen take over 24 hours a day until that storm is outta there.
- Oops. Meant to sign myself . . .
- Hey new Orleans, is it true wild pacs of dogs roam your streets? And good luck with the storm!
- Thanks R121. And don't wild packs of dogs roam everybody's streets?
- Is it wrong to think the hillbilly sons were fucking HOT? Hell, so was daddy and the girl's dad.
Is it wrong to want to fuck the guy who was holding the gun to the dad's head until he screams for mercy?
- I love LOVE the asian cop character. He's hilarious.
- The episode fucking ROCKED tonight. Best Grimm ever, and now the partner knows!
I have one question though... why do some of the creatures look at him and know instantly he's a Grimm... while others don't know until he tells them... and still others don't know at first but at some point look at him and go "OMG HE'S A GRIMM!"?
We know how the Grimm learns/figures-out they're creatures. But it's never been indicated what gives HIM away to THEM. Anyone?
- [quote]The lead actor is the weakest link.
The first time I ever saw David Giuntoli was on a bit part in "Hot in Cleveland" which is executive produced Sean Hayes. (I took notice cuz he's hot.) And guess who executive produces "Grimm", that's right, Sean Hayes.
- He's not a wink link. He's the entire reason I watch.
- I knew I recognized the girl's dad. That's Mark Pellegrino who played the devil on Supernatural and Bishop on the SYFY version of Being Human.
- I get him and Callum Keith Rennie mixed up.
- The guy who played the pack leader in the latest episode plays also the main villain in the SyFy show Alphas.
- Lots of hot guys in this series. Would love to fuck David Giuntoli blind!
- The leader of the coyote clan played Sarah's husband (whom she divorced as he was banging Holly's daughter) on the Sally Field Programme.
- Looked to me like Monroe's "foxy" girlfriend might be in trouble in next episode teaser... Sure hope they don't kill her off. She's one of the better characters on the show!
- I doubt it R133, but she was VERY pregnant at Comic-Con so I wouldn't be surprised if she took a break.
- I believe tonight's airing at 10:00 PM is the last Monday night airing of the show. It returns to Friday nights at 9:00 PM next week.
- I love that he's finally out to his partner!
- Monroe and Rosalie are so damn cute. Loved when she yelled at him and he looked at her like he wanted to run. He's the best thing in this show.
- Another good episode. Not as good as last week's, but still, I love this show.
- any ideas/details to: Captain Sean Renard, superior officer and a member of the creature community of unknown origin.
What kind of creature? details? etc...
- Some sort of devil, if I had to guess, r139.
Based on the season ender/opener (watched it on hulu so I can't recall) where the captain has to drink the potion mom hex-beast gave him.
Great scenes of him rolling around shirtless and smoke coming out his gills.
And his cousin? brother? who is a sadist.
I love the Asian cop, too. He's almost my favorite (Monroe still wins that title - for now).
- What's the new night again?
- It starts up again on Friday, September 28 @ 9pm. Can't wait. Absolutely LOVE this show!
- I think it starts back up next Friday night.
- On NBC, the Friday premiere of Grimm earned a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, up a tenth from the 1.5 18-49 rating its last original earned. Dateline scored a 1.3, down from last season's 2.0 fall premiere rating
- Resurrected! I kept getting a "thread does not exist" notice. Thanks R23 from the other thread.
- I liked last night's although it was a bit stale. The wolf and the sheep meme is a bit overdone. I liked that the sheep won the day in the way they did, though. Next week looks interesting.
- I thought it was a decent episode, not outstanding, but good enough. The cabana boy at the very end was hot.
- Here’s NBC’s new HD Promo for next weeks episode of ‘Grimm.’ Episode 2×06, of Grimm is titled ‘Over my Dead Body.’ In 2×06, ‘Over My Dead Body,’ Angelina (Jaime Ray Newman) comes to town with bad news; Nick asks Hank for help keeping Monroe safe; Capt. Renard receives a visit from a former acquaintance (Alice Evans).
Grimm Ratings Note:
Grimm had a disappointing season 2 debut, netting 5.64 million viewers. It’d been down every week since until Friday’s ‘The Good Shepherd,’ which saw Grimm go up a a tenth of a ratings point. It was watched by 5.3 million. I think Grimm’s magic number is 5 million viewers. If the show dips below 5 million viewers a week, I don’t see how NBC renews it for anther season. So, keep your eye on that 5 million mark all year if you love you some Grimm –
Grimm Returns with 2×06, ‘Over my Dead Body,’ on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 9pm on NBC.
- Here's a deleted scene from last night's episode.
- Sacha Ruiz is so sexy! Does anyone agree with me that David Giuntioli is often upstaged as a leading man by the other guys on the show, especially Ruiz and Silas Weir Mitchell, who plays Monroe? The problem for David Giuntioli is that while he is handsome and a good enough actor, he lacks the charisma and presence to head a tv show.
- I love the show, I love the lead actor, and really hope it keeps going.
I'm surprised the season 2 ratings haven't been that good... it was given such a prime starting position.
- Grimm has won its timeslot two weeks in a row. Last week, it was the highest rating Friday night show in the key demo. Grimm is doing very well.
- I liked it better when Nick and Monroe were the main characters and Sgt Wu was there for comic relief. It makes absolutely no sense that Hank can see wesen. If Hank can see them, then everyone should be able to see them.
Rosalie, Nick's mother, Nick's girlfriend are all unnecessary characters who muddy up the story. Monroe has practically been castrated since Rosalie showed up. Is Silas Weir Mitchell filming a movie somewhere? Is that why we've seen so little of him?
- Clearly, you didn't see Friday's episode, r153. It was a very Monroe centric episode and they explained when humans can and cannot see Wesen.
- I want Nick and Angelina to fuck.
- It's a little late for that, r155.
I like that actress, though. She was good on Veronica Mars.
- SPOILER ALERT for anyone who wants to keep all of the next episode of Grimm a complete surprise for the end of this week. But for any Grimm fans eager to watch a snippet of what’s to come on the NBC fantasy procedural, EW has an exclusive clip from this Friday’s episode, “The Bottle Imp.”
It’s a moment we’ve been waiting for ever since that coma-ending kiss in the second episode of the season: Juliette and Renard finally come face-to-face. And Nick is there to witness his memory-challenged girlfriend’s encounter with his boss. Check out the clip below:Between this clip and the deleted scene from last week’s episode, Grimm seems to be telling us that there may be some sparks flying between Juliette and Renard, the prince who awoke her from witch spell-induced slumber. How great was Juliette’s flustered response of “Yeah, uh, what? Yeah,” and her smitten twirl out of frame at the end? Could this be the “residual effects” of the potion Sasha Roiz told us about earlier this season?
The promo for this episode tells us, “Things are getting complicated.” A young woman who has selective amnesia starts to fall for her boyfriend’s boss who’s secretly a prince and a Hexenbiest just as she might be getting back her memories of her boyfriend who is secretly a monster-killer and not telling her the whole story of why she turned down his wedding proposal? Yeah, I’d say ‘complicated’ is an appropriate description.

- Grimm “The Hour of Death” Season 2 Episode 10 airs Friday, Nov 2, 2012 on NBC (9-10 p.m. ET).
Episode Synopsis: When a brutal vigilante homicide is made public, it sends Portland’s Wesen community into a frenzy. As Nick (David Giuntoli) investigates further, he discovers a pattern similar to that of a particularly brutal line of past Grimms. Is there another Grimm in town, or is Nick dealing with a sadistic copycat? Meanwhile, Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) takes it upon himself to offer Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) comfort in handling her ongoing dilemma with Nick. Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell and Reggie Lee.
Show Summary:“Grimm” is a drama series inspired by the classic Grimm Brother’s Fairy Tales. After Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, “Turn the Beat Around”) discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as `Grimms,’ he increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.
His attempts to shield his fiancée, Juliette Silverton (Bitsie Tulloch, “The Artist”), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, “Lincoln Heights”), from the hazards of his new life have reached a crisis, leaving Juliette in a mysterious coma and Hank on the verge of a mental breakdown.
With help from his confidants, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner, “The Ugly Truth”) — both reformed Grimm creatures, Nick must help those closest to him while still facing off against all manner of ancient evils, including royal lines dating back to the original profilers themselves, the Grimm Brothers. As Nick develops his ability to harness his inner Grimm, he begins to question what he once knew, never more so than when he is reunited with his mother (guest star Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, “Scarface”), also a Grimm, whom he thought dead for the past 18 years. Reggie Lee (“The Dark Knight Rises”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star as Sgt. Wu and Captain Renard, respectively.
- Good ep. The makeup on the critter was gross/scary. Needs more Monroe.
- The intern/fake grimm looked like the vesen version of a lamprey eel. I don't blame him for not wanting to be what he was.
- On NBC, the telethon Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together, which was simulcast on numerous cable channels, earned a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. Grimm notched a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Dateline NBC earned a 1.1, down from last week's 1.4 rating.
- Michael Grant Terry (the intern) is getting a little long in the tooth to play all these young pup roles.
- On NBC, Grimm notched a 1.7, dipping a single tenth from last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating,. Dateline NBC earned a 1.3, up two tenths from last week's 1.1rating.
- I can't believe people actually watch that piece of shit.
- People LOVE it, r169.
- I'm moving to Portland the week of Thanksgiving. My only references are Grimm and Portlandia. I don't know which terrifies me more: vessen or hipsters.
- I can't believe R169 is actually smart enough to breathe.
- Poor Monroe. What will he do with this secret? Should he tell Nick?
- Based on the preview for next week, I think that's going to be a moot question.
- I knew it was coming, but it was still a 'Oh shit!' moment when Monroe caught them in the act.
- I actually find Juliet interesting in her fascination with Renard. She was pretty boring before that soryline. So I hope Juliet does not rediscover her feelings for Nick.
- I want Nick, Juliet, and Renard to have a hot threesome. I always liked the Juliet character for being the one thing that keeps Nick connected to the real world and in the same moment creates a conflict between those two worlds he's in.
- [quote]I actually find Juliet interesting in her fascination with Renard. She was pretty boring before that storyline.
And I want to see Renard take off that shirt again and roll around on the floor! So far, Juliet seems to be the only way we're going to see that!
His "brother" is fug so who cares if he gets it on with little miss ex-hexbeast?
- I love this show and hope it continues. I was wondering why this season seems short. I have not missed an episode since the beginning and I love the characters. Hank will be more involved now that he knows and is not washed out! I am a fan of Juliette"s as well. I think Nick has to have her to be grounded or it would consume him. I think she should be in the know already and I am getting bored with the memory loss bit. I adore Monroe! I am ready for something to happen with the Captain and the Royals. The writing is very creative and the make up is great! There is so much talent in all aspects of this show and I hope they get a bigger audience!
- I want to see more of Rosalee!
Kill off that old auntie already and get her butt back in Portland.
- Bree Turner who plays Rosalee had a baby on Sept 12, 2012 so she is on maternity leave but will return mid-season. I agree she adds a lot to the Grimm series
- On NBC, Grimm notched a 1.6, down 6% from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating,. Dateline NBC earned a 1.2, down 8% from last week's 1.3 rating.
- Am about halfway through Season 1. Pretty clever show. Proves how well 'cross-pollinating' works.
I was watching Season 3 of 'Face Off' and one of the competitions was to create a creature based on one of several 'Grimm' related crime scenes. Had never really heard of the show and definitely had not watched it.
Tracked down a cheap used DVD on Amazon and am now halfway through the season. I have to check Google, I heard it's been cancelled now. Not sure if that's true or not.
- The person who told me it is cancelled must be mistaken. This posting from November 2012 describes it as one of Friday night's rating leaders. That's good to know.
- For some reason the cast seems a bit 'old' to me. I liked the episode with the ratboy/Pied Piper. His character didn't end up doing anything *that* awful (okay ...well he tried to kill those other students with a boatload of rats, but hey ...)
I think he should come back as a younger sidekick to the rest of the group.
That was the episode that got me invested. The ending where Sean offered Hank a slice of pizza and when Hank opened the box there was a plastic rat .... I rewound and watched again about six times.
- I don't care about the show, I care about David Giuntoli. I watch him like a love struck teenager.
- I like David too. And Sasha Roiz makes me swoon!!! Sexy older guy. Getting to like Bitsie Tulloch. Didn't care for her at first but her character (Juliette) is growing on me.
- bump for the new season!
- Really enjoyed the new ep. V. glad Rosalee is back (as predicted by R181).
- Does the Grimm have some enhanced fighting powers since the blinding?
- I think Grimms do have some kind of kick ass strenght (based on training) and like with any other humans when one sense is temporarily or permanently shut down the other senses become stronger to compensate for the loss of the other.
- I don't understand why he doesn't come out (as a Grimm) to his GF.
- r193, his aunt told him not to. But she also told him to dump her since she will most likely die a violent death if she stays with him.
- Meh episode although I liked the Scooby-like team that took on the lawyer and Monroe and the frog was fun although it bordered at times on cutsie. He managed to pull it off, though.
Ditto with the sweat getting. Almost cutsie but the mouse actor pulled it off.
So the actors are better than the writer of this ep, IMO.
The prince doesn't know about his new son or daughter. That was interesting.
I'm ready for wassername to get her memory back already. The multiple Nicks saying creepy stuff is too much.
- I'm glad Rosalee is back, too.
I want to see more of Hank.
- I love the Monroe and Rosalee scene where Monroe is giving her a clock as a gift that means so much to him.
- Didn't Monroe live on the edge of a vast park, in an area that was a little secluded? All of a sudden he's smack dab in the middle of a suburban neighborhood surrounded by other houses, but the inside of his house is the same as it was in the first episode.
- Shouldn't we see Monroe doing some yoga and Pilates?
He's been kind of de-balled by rosemary.
- He did Yoga before too.
Did no one else notice the thunder and the horses whinnying when the woman with hexan bitch said "Frau Hest" or whatever. It was quiet, but definitely there.
- Moving to Tuesday nights? Anyone know why?
- He still does, r198. It's across the street so you usually don't see it in most shots.
If a dude like him gave me a clock like that, I would totally know he wanted inmy panties!
- Hopefully they're moving it to Tuesday so it will do better. There ain't much on Tuesday.
- [bold]VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:[/bold]
In case you somehow missed it, Grimm moves to Tuesday nights immediately, so the next episode will air at 10 pm on April 30th, and the recap will go up on the morning of May 1st. [bold]In other good news, Grimm was officially renewed for season 3,[/bold] because Grimm is NBC’s #1 show among ages 18-49, the prime advertising demographic. Now, this is partially because Grimm is good, but mostly because NBC is so fucking terrible at television it's insane. Look, every other TV network’s top non-reality show is a medical drama, a cop drama, or a comedy. NBC has plenty of those, but they’re all so terrible that more people prefer the weird niche show about the fairy tale monster hunters over every single scripted show TV NBC aired this season. It’s good for Grimm, but terrible for NBC. Still, since Grimm is in all honesty one of NBC’s biggest hits at the moment, I’d be surprised if it was still relegated to the Friday death slot come next fall.
- Yay! Thank you, r204.
Does this mean we get more naked Sacha?
- They make good use of the local geography. They've featured local landmarks and emphasized the woodland area around Portland. They didn't just rely on Portland being a "hip" city and throwing in some local weirdness.
- Am I the only one who wishes Juliet and Renard were still fixated on one another? I thought they had the potential to be a really hot couple.
- Any news on the ratings for its new day and time slot?
- What time does "Grimm" air on Tuesday nights?
- I wonder what Grimm sex is like?
- I'd like to see Nick and Renard become fixated with each other!
- Okay, I apologize but I didn't want to read the whole thread..obviously everyone here likes the show but how does it compare to "once,"? I used to love "Once," but this year it went bat shit crazy and the show sucks. Does Grimm have a hot, sexy Evil Queen?
- Looks like the ratings for the new night are ok.
Don't know what they were for Friday nights.
- Grimm has a hot, evil witch, Adalind, who lost her powers and is trying to get them back.
- Yeah, I really love Adelane the hexenbitch. She's great.
- Me too, R207.
- Renard makes a hot couple with anyone.
I was hoping he would bring the heat to that muse.
- Adelind is nothing compared to Regina, I'm afraid. But Grimm is just as much fun as Once. For one thing, Monroe is the most fun part of Grimm and is just as much fun as Regina, IMO.
- Finally, Julia sees the Wesen.
- Julia needs a job. It doesn't look like she's worked since her coma.
- I'll check it out. Once has become so much a cartoon this year and next year they will be in total CGI Neverland.
- Who is this Julia you write of? Nick's gf is named Juliet.
- My bad...Juliet.
- R212, Grimm is much better than "Once", and it has hot and sexy Nick!
- Zombies Grimm? Hmm.
Like the voodoo man.
- Monroe's parents are Teabaggers!
- Nick is hot as fuck.
- The final dinner table scene was pretty funny.
- Last night's episode should be called "Wu Rocks, and Nick is an asshole!"
- I know a few people who have had roles on the show. It sounds like a fun set.
- They should've told the cop that he wasn't imagining things, that they saw. They didn't have to explain wesen to him or anything else, just that they'd seen what he saw. Stupid.
- I know. That's why they're assholes.
They'd better bring Wu into the fold next episode, or they'll cement their asshole status.
