    While it's not as consistently cheeky as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show does provide enough self-satirizing jabs to satiate cynics.

    It's hard not to love a show with a comely apothecary, and it's impossible not to love the new season of Grimm.

    The overall mythology is sprouting nicely thorny tendrils. [10 Sep 2012, p.42]

    The supporting cast was better used, there were occasional touches of humor beyond Monroe, they mythology didn't just feel like a retread of bits from "Buffy," "Angel," etc., and I even thought leading man David Giuntoli had gotten better.

    This second season of Grimm has seen the show evolve from a confused pedestrian 'monster of the week'/ police procedural to having a more integrated and purposeful narrative with greater attention given to the larger story arc hinted at in Season 1. Ideas are sharper and characters are finally being developed. The special effects are still a little on the budget side but that can be forgiven given the wholesale improvement seen in the rest of the show. It seems Grimm has finally found its feet. Worth sticking with. Full Review »

    Good idea, charming characters. I saw 1st season in one breath and 2nd season is just as exciting. Beautiful actors in this cozy world of fairy tales. Maybe its ratings will be higher if series creators add some actions. Full Review »

    This show has come back better than ever. The new episodes since the long hiatus ended are spectacular and well worth watching. This is not your typical cop drama, and the back story is phenomenal. Full Review »
