About Grimm:
Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt of the Portland Police Bureau learns he is descended from a line of "guardians" known as "Grimms", charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures (called Wesen, pronounced as "vessin") of the world. Throughout the episodes, he must battle against an assortment of dangerous creatures, with help from his friend Monroe (who is a reformed creature), and his partner Detective Hank Griffin.

My Thoughts:
I like the premise of this show. I think they got that one right! It's like a police Harry Dresden! The urban fantasy geek in me is ecstatic! I also had to give the cinematography lots and lots of kudos for a flawless mixing of fantastical elements with live actors. Excellent digital arts team!! It makes the werewolves and witches and what-nots come alive on the screen and I like that very much! Safe to say that the world building is fantastic! Holey, but fantastic! I am going to reserve judgement about the holes in the world building and keep my fingers crossed that they would do a better with the script in Season 2. Another thing that really bugs me about this series is that this is an american TV show. That means we get it here in the UK a YEAR after it airs in the US! WTF!! *sigh* But that is not the worst part about Grimm Season 1. It's the Season finale which is one whoopping cliffhanger that has me pulling my hair out! I hate cliffhangers!! But because I really, really like the premise I would still buy the Season 2 dvd box set (when it eventually gets here).
Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5 cherries
