10I felt Grimm's pilot was satisfying to watch. Acting was great, I was on the edge of my seat while watching it (And was a little scared). All-in-all I feel this will end up being great if they can keep a balance, and spend more time on learning/Teaching viewers about each monster!… Expand
One of the most boring, predictable shows I have had the mispleasure of watching. Sadly, as my wife loves this sort of tat I do have to sit through it each week and it generally goes like this..
Step 1: Present day re-enactment of Grimm's Fairy Tale
Step 2: Detective Burkhardt is on scene and sees someone's face turn into a really bad cgi monster face.
Step 3: He speak to the monster, they act scared of him..even though he has exhibited no monster slaying skills what-so-ever thus far in the series.
Step 4: He goes and speaks to dog boy, Eddie, who knows everything about everything and then they go to beat down on the bad guys.
Step 4: They get separated, the detective defeats the bad guy while teaching us all a morale lesson.
Step 5: End of show and we all look forward to the exact same formula next week ..whoohoo!
So yes, it offers nothing original or interesting, the writing is laughable and the effects worse than Charmed (another favourite if Mrs Tachikoma) and all in all a waste of NBC's money.… Expand
