Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) is a Portland, Oregon homicide detective with a strange secret: he's a descendant of an elite group of hunters who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. The Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, but imagine if their villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.

Critic Reviews for Grimm: Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (17)

Grimm is a familiar procedural in big bad wolf's clothing.

Top Critic

This is a darkly lit, bland mix of the mythological, procedural, and supernatural. It should be more original, and the characters should be less forgettable.

October 28, 2011 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

It's not nearly as imaginative, involving or picturesque as ABC's fairy tale offering, Once Upon A Time.

October 28, 2011 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Grimm has real promise if NBC has real patience.

October 28, 2011 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Top Critic

Although entertaining, Grimm takes a gruesome twist on fairy tales and plays up the vivid scariness and nightmare-causing angles.

October 28, 2011 | Full Review…

A fun, focused, and well-paced romp through a fairy tale, quickly streamlining and integrating the story into an easy to follow procedural case.

October 28, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
