Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Grimm ends up in a twilight zone. Unfortunately, not the good Twilight Zone.
The show might even breathe some life into the decaying police-procedural genre.
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.
It's not nearly as imaginative, involving or picturesque as ABC's fairy tale offering, Once Upon A Time.
Trotting out all the worn-out cop and conspiracy clichés is bad enough, but Grimm does nothing in the least bit exciting with its (also worn-out) premise, that supernatural creatures of all sorts live right alongside ordinary humans.
I don't know what NBC is doing, but Grimm is not a step in the right direction toward helping their network regain any sort of credibility. Simply put, Grimm is a joke.
For all of the well-executed moments and Giuntoli's earnest performance, this trajectory for the show and the vagueness of his character is kind of dispiriting.
Grimm could have been fun, but it's so focused on being a structured, humorless, supernatural noir that it fails to even be entertaining.
The show offers genuine scares, but lines like "I already cried wolf once -- you think they're gonna believe me?" cast a hokey spell.
Audience Reviews for Grimm: Season 1
Dec 22, 2020The first season is rough, but once you get to the next seasons, the show improves by a lot.
Nov 11, 2020Spannende Neuinterpretation der gruseligen Märchen. Die verwirrende on/off Liebesgeschichte der Hauptfigur ist langweilig.
Apr 18, 2020Great show! Definitely a must watch....
Mar 27, 2020Compared to the rest of the series this season falls a little flat.
Feb 17, 2020Didn't like it at first. Found it quite predictable, bland and rote. Finally about episode 15 it starts getting better. It's as if 2/3 of the way through the season the whole style changed and it actually became interesting. I found myself not just turning it on for background noise while doing chores but actually watching the show. The more positive reviews for the following seasons are the only reason I continued to watch. Glad I did, so far.
Aug 27, 2019The first season of GRIMM uses consistent atmosphere and strong story telling and character development to create a believably interesting world full of mystery. I found it riveting.
Feb 19, 2019loved this series wish it never came to an end found it late n binged through it all just really wish they kept going with it
Jan 13, 2019Now, these are my kind of Fairy Tales. This my bio of Grimm: a new view or alternate story to fairy tales which comes with horror and gore. I can sort of see why the negative reviews are a thing. The first couple of episodes had so many plot holes. One big plot hole was in the first episode when the girl died she had the iPod as evidence and caught the bad guy because he was humming the song. I highly doubt an iPod last overnight on its battery and survives in the rain. Silas Weir Mitchell was the funny comedy character of the series. Everyone had ok acting. The special effects, considering the budget of the show, was amazing. The plot was quite slow paced and wasn't shown off as being huge. This show should be aged 12 for violence, bad language, gore, and drugs. Grade: A-
Nov 27, 2018Incredibly predictable, cliche plot devices and bad acting. I normally watch through I series even if I don't really like it, but this series is too bad to keep watching.
Sep 30, 2018This started out a great show. Juliette was hands down the best female character I have ever seen. In today liberal horseshit it is so hard to find a likable character. So what does this stupid show do? They destroy her. First by letting the most unlikable c unt make her obsess about Nick' s boss but then turning her into Eve. So then they let aforementioned cu nt steal him by raping him and I course he then marries her because that is what normal people do. This is like some trashy soap opera. If not for Officer Cho and Monroe this show is completely unwatchable. My hope is that they fire all the writers who thought it was a good idea not to kill Adeline and start new by killing. I am sorry anyone who has two kids to manipulate two men is done in my book. The fact that they are trying to act like she is a good mother sickens me. There is no coming back from that.
