Yes, I love Grimm, and I'm going to miss this show, but... the final season, is a miss.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The lead-up to that [final] moment is truly devastating.

Apr 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The Season 6 premiere moves at a brisk clip, efficiently dispensing of much of last season's dead weight, and offering its own incidental pleasures.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

When the camera is up-close, personal and blind to Portland in general, there's a vibrancy.

Jan 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The scattered nature of Grimm is an oft-endearing thing, the jury's still out on whether that trait will get in the way of it producing a satisfying conclusion.

Audience Reviews for Grimm: Season 6

    I have been watching this so for so long and I'm utterly sad that it has found it's ending. I loved the adventures Nick and his friend had and feel like I have become one of the people in Nick his group of friends which I think you can basically call his family. I saw this show grow and become better, I saw how the animations became more real, how the storyline "grew up" as well as all the characters, and I will miss it. I truly will. I haven't seen one boring episode of Grimm, and that says something. I don't like the thought of no new Grimm episodes, but I have enjoyed this show to the fullest.

    loved this series all the way to the end found it late so binge watched from beginning to end really wish they had kept going with it one my faves to watch

    I love this show and was DEVASTATED when it was cancelled

    The script is quite simple, the direction is poor and the production is bad. In the last episode you can clearly see a doll instead of a baby; sometimes the conclusions to which some of the characters arrive when they have to attack a wesen is stupid. Didn't like it at all.

    A few years ago, reimaged fairy tales were trending in popularity. Following the standard course of events, this manifested in projects in both film and television. In the venue of TV, there were several series that thankfully minimized the overlap in fundamental themes and construction. What some may not realize is a significant number of the stories we tell our children as the lie in their beds were horrific. Murder, mutilation, betrayal, and cannibalism are all prominent themes in the original. Un-bowdlerized versions were better suited as source material for Eli Roth than Walt Disney. This provided a natural pathway to bring the stories into the new millennium by taking the content exceptionally dark. One of the best incarnations of this trend has been a mainstay of a television program for NBC. ‘Grimm.' Set primarily in Portland the show focused on a police detective who discovered that he was a Grimm, a person that can see the true for of shape changing creatures collectively known as Wesen. Capable of appearing like normal humans they are creatures usually based on some form of an animal. Many are peaceful, but the dangerous ones resulted in the need for Grimms to locate and kill them. This is a simplistic synopsis that might lead a person to imagine the series as a string of episodes featuring the hero slaughtering a new, special effects driven monster. If that were the case, the show would have been correctly canceled before finishing the first season. The main reason the series lasted for six seasons, retaining both quality and popularity, is the creative showrunner and writers crafted a fully formed world complete with elaborate backstories, character development, and an incredible internal consistency. The sixth season was its last, but in keeping with a new found respect many networks developed for the fan, they pulled everything together, wrapping up loose ends and providing exciting entertainment till the very last scene. Over the course of six seasons, the show established several defined factions each with a specific vested interest in the overall story. As mention, the two dominant groups are the Wesen and Grimms. Both have been active and mutually antagonistic for nearly a millennium. This plot point was gradually elevated from backstory to significant drive theme when it was discovered that a group of Grimms were Knights Templar during the Crusades. The protagonist Grimm, Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) took the investigation to the Black Forrest, added by his best friend, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell). Breaking with an ancient natural order Monroe is a type of Wesen called a Blutbad, the basis of werewolf legends. It was unheard of that a Grimm and Wesen would be anything but moral enemies. The existence of Wesen is known only to a few including Nick’s partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby), and police Sergeant Drew Wu (Reggie Lee). Initially, both characters were in the dark, a plot point that was entirely impossible to continue. In this final season both characters became crucial to the revelation of the endgame, Nick found a mysterious stick wrapped in a piece of cloth. The cloth had faint remnants of odd symbols of unknown origin. A tunnel was in the loft where Nick lives with his girlfriend, Adalind Schad (Claire Coffee), a witch-like Wesen called a Hexenbiest. She had a son with Nick while disguised as Nick’s fiancée, Juliette Silverton (Elizabeth Tulloch). Nothing is ever simple in this series. Shapeshifting, dark magic and consistently shifting alliances complicate what typically are simple matters. Adalind also had a daughter with Police Captain Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz), who is also a Wesen, called a Zauberbiest (the male form of Hexenbiest). He is also the bastard member of one of the royal families. The Royals have been exploited Wesen and manipulated Grimms for centuries in a move to consolidate wealth and power. He is politically savvy and associated with militant Wesen group determine to have Wesen live in the open. The final episodes concentrate on how the strange symbols reveal another dimension inhabited by feral Wesen and a very powerful demon. Juliette was turned into a Hexenbiest and subsequently killed. She was reincarnated as Eve, an emotionless assassin who becomes allied with Nick et al. Typically, so many moving parts would be extremely difficult to manage, resulting in a mess spiraling into an incomprehensible morass. Thanks to brilliance on every level of production from teleplays to the direction and through to performances, the story inexorably attaches itself to the viewer, retaining intense interest. There are some elements of the conclusion that appear to be telegraphed, a stick from the Knight Templars that can heal, but even in those cases, the journey to the revelation was constantly at the apex of entertainment. The show could have continued for several more seasons but the showrunners, Stephen Carpenter, David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, wisely decided to bring the story to a definitive conclusion that respects the fans with a satisfying end to one of the best supernaturally oriented shows to occupy a major network’s programming slate. So often a series nearly completely dependent on a mythology runs the risk of imploding. The elaborate internal story is responsible for binding the numerous threads and impact of the characters. What was unique about ‘Grimm’ was despite the exceptionally dark aspects attributed to the ‘evil’ Wesen never overshadows the ultimate objective, to provide enjoyable entertainment. The series aptly avoided the pitfall of taking itself too seriously. When the subject matter turns decidedly to the dark side, the ideal modicum of levity is introduced. For example, when Hank and Wu are told the truth about Wesen they decide that his first contact should not be something as inherently frightening as a Blutbad. It would be best to ease then into their new reality such as Monroe’s wife, Rosalee Calvert (Bree Turner), a Fuchsbau. This is a fox-like Wesen not generally in association with the predatory Blutbad. Ultimately the decide on a friendly Wesen, Bud Wurstner (Danny Bruno), who is the beaver-like imbiber.In contrast to the monstrous Wesen slaughtering their way through the Portend area, Bud is timid, practically afraid of everything. Instead of underplaying the reaction of people to Wesen, the writers tackle it head on utilizing it for some comic relief. The series incorporates many socially relevant issues without allowing them to overwhelm the story lines. Monroe and Rosalee are different types of Wesen, a situation that is the basis of a significant amount of prejudice when they became engaged and had to break the news to their parents. Think of it like ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner’ with shapeshifters. Blended families are explored in the situation between Sean and Adalind who share custody of their very daughter, Diana Schade-Renard (Hannah R. Loyd). On top of the normal issues inherent in a child shifted between two households, Diana is tremendously powerful able to kill with a thought. Again, such children are typically used as a form of Deus ex machina, but such sloppy writing contrivances are not part of this-this series’ style. It is sad when a show embodying such notable quality comes to an end, but it is better than the alternative of steadily declining quality. Thankfully the practice of a canceled show drifting off into limbo is no longer tolerated by fans. This series deserved the exciting final season.

    Plot has improved but the Grimm is a little bit to much Mr. Nice Guy.
  • Mar 10, 2017
    I love this show. I will genuinely miss it if this truly is the last season.
  • Mar 02, 2017
    Amazing show that shouldn't be cancelled. It has only gotten better as the show has gone on, just as they find a steady groove it gets the axe. Goodbye to one of the best shows NBC has aired.
