Tv Season Info

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 (34) | Top Critics (19)

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.

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

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.

Grimm has real promise if NBC has real patience.

Top Critic

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.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Grimm could have been fun, but it's so focused on being a structured, humorless, supernatural noir that it fails to even be entertaining.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The show offers genuine scares, but lines like "I already cried wolf once -- you think they're gonna believe me?" cast a hokey spell.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

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