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.

The second season of the NBC American supernatural drama series Grimm premiered on August 13, 2012. It is set to consist of 22 episodes. The series, created by David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter, follows a descendant of the Grimm line, Nick Burkhardt, as he deals with being a cop, and trying not to expose his secret as a Grimm.

My Thoughts:
I wasn't very impressed with this show with Season 1 but I very, very much like the premise of a Grimm police! I am a sucker for sap like that! And now I am willing to overlook quite a lot just to get a fix of more Portland Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt! One thing remains the same, the seamless blending of the live actors/physical set and animated software that the fantastical elements comes off real and beautiful in the screen. I also like where the show is heading. That Nick finally brought Hank into the loop. That Monroe is getting a love-interest. And that Monroe's ex is tidily out of the way plus she wasn't that much of a bitch really, she was just being a blutbad. And the acting is good! All the action looks believable.

I would still be buying the dvd box set of Season 2 despite having downloaded some of the episodes already. Looking forward to watching the season finale. I am pretty sure it is going to be a cliffhanger like Season 1 was... But I am now hooked, line and sinker, to this series. So be warned this show is addictive!
Empirical Evaluation:
Cinematography = 5
Script/Story Itself = 4
World building = 5
Attention To Detail = 4
Plot = 4
Acting = 4.5

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 cherries
