TV Pick: Grimm Season 1 Episodes 1 & 2

Last  week I've been thinking of watching Grimm. I doubt at first but last night I finally did.

Grimm is similar with Supernatural the series when it comes to solving crimes that are unexplainable. In Grimm the lead is David Giuntoli who is playing Nick Burkhardt, a detective. Nick is a Grimm and he can see what ordinary people can't. This is his way of solving crimes.



Storyline borrowed from Imdb.com:

Portland detective, Nick Burkhardt, has seen some gruesome crime scenes, but nothing prepares him for the strange visions he begins seeing: seemingly regular people momentarily transforming into hideous monsters. A visit from his only living relative reveals the truth. Nick has inherited the ability to see supernatural creatures, and as a "Grimm," he is tasked with keeping the balance between mankind and the mythological. A reformed "Big Bad Wolf" becomes his greatest (and also reluctant) ally and confidant. It's not long before his work as a policeman leads Nick to the criminals he once thought were only found in fairy tales.


As for the Pilot episode, the story was based on Little Red Riding Hood, a wolf man (as I call it) eats girls wearing red jacket. The wolf monster are somewhat collecting red jackets from his prey. 

Episode 1: Pilot
Nick Burkhardt, a promising Portland homicide detective, told nobody he gets visions of people 'transforming' into monsters when he looks at them. While investigating the murder and disappearance of two girls, he realizes it's a Grimm family gift, which his grandmother Marie Kessler wants to pass on along with a mysterious key when badly wounded. Nick becomes her attacker's next target, but barely and wisely discretely uses his gift to track down the postman, who turns out a descendant of werewolf line, yet helps him find the violent monster.


The second episode's story was based on Goldilocks and the 3 bears. The monsters here are bear-like. They hunt human as a part of a ritual.

Episode 2: Bears Will Be Bears
A case of breaking and entering introduces Nick and Hank to a mysterious family whose cultural background blurs the line of right and wrong. Meanwhile, Nick tasks Monroe with safeguarding Aunt Marie.


I hope you too Cute-rs want to watch Grimm!

'till my next TV Pick,
