Again with the fairytales

Or not…

Hey sorry, I’m not trying to yank your chain.  It’s been a really mixed bag over the past few days between a family emergency and the accompanying drama.  But yesterday we finally got to watch the much-anticipated new episode of Grimm which tipped the weekend into the plus category.  This is not one of your grandmother’s fairytales or for the faint of heart.  If you don’t like The Walking Dead, Grimm may not be for you.

On the other hand, if you are into fantasy or horror, I invite you to take a peek.  The program is creepy, suspenseful and amusingly silly at times.  I won’t go into the storyline; the trailer below for season 1 does a much better job of informing the viewer than I could with mere words.

FYI – the show is up to season 4 but you really need to begin at the beginning to fully appreciate how the characters develop.  I can’t say enough good things about this show.  From the cinematography to the make-up to the special effects – visually it’s absolutely stunning.  The writers continue to surprise us and I enjoy how they’ve brought supporting characters into more prominent roles, weaving their stories into the whole.  If you check it out let me know how you like it.  If you already watch it – didn’t episode 13 kick ass?!  Literally.

  1. I haven’t seen the latest one, but I do love the show. It’s ability to be a bit tongue-in-cheek makes it delightful and engaging. (Unlike the takes-it-self-too-seriously Once Upon A Time, which I didn’t care for.) I came late to the series, so I’m delighted that the TNT network is running it from the beginning. In my watch queue for tonight, I have the last two episodes of season one, and the first two of season two. (TNT is airing four at a time.)

  2. i like grimm too, but i haven’t seen it in along time. my favorite character is/was the werewolf, the actor is just great. i’m kinda hoping netflix will start streaming it sometime soon so i can jump back in. glad you had something to push the weekend into the plus category.
