Grimm TV Series Pilot Review.

Hey Frightners!

Well with Halloween only days away the TV Networks are in full swing with their 31 days till Halloween specials along with some new series premiers that could help satisfy our dark cravings after the Halloween season has come and gone. One of those new series is Grimm on NBC.

Grimm is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. It follows the story of homicide detective Nick Burkhardt who discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as "Grimms." The Grimms are charged with keeping the balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world and in the pilot episode detective Nick comes to realize that all those fairy tale creatures he thought were just stories aren't really just stories after all.

My wife and I caught the pilot episode for free on iTunes and went into watching it with low expectations but in the end we were pleased with the show and excited to see what was in store for future episodes. The cast is likeable and David Giuntoli who plays detective Nick Burkhardt did a great job, it's easy to like his character and want to see how he develops his new found power of profiling the mischievous creatures of the world. The pilot revolves around the story of the big bag wolf. Seems there is a wolf stalking anyone who is wearing red (little red riding hood anyone!) All in all it's worth some attention moving forward and should be a fun watch.

Every once in awhile the networks do a dark drama right and hopefully this time they will have a winner on their hands. The actual TV premier is tonight at 9PM EST on NBC but check your local listings for your time and channel. It appears that the iTunes version does not show the entire one hour premier but does provide a full episode. I assume as the series moves along they will be shortened to half an hour episodes and the premier is just two episodes in one but we shall see.

If you happen to check it out please feel free to come back here and post your take on Grimm. It would be cool to see what everyone thinks!
