Recently started on NBC, Grimm is a police drama with a difference. Homicide detective Nick Burkhardt has a gift that he acquired from his dying aunt. He's the last in a long line of Grimms, people who can see the real monsters behind their human disguises. That's right, the fairytales weren't just stories to warn kids about the results of bad behavior, they really happened! And now it's up to Nick to search them out and kill the bad ones.
It sounds like one of those things that I couldn't believe nobody had thought of yet. So far, NBC have aired a pilot and a second episode and tonight the third is on. The show was created by Stephen Carpenter, Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, who have all at some point worked on Angel. And ofcourse David Greenwalt was also co-executive producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and co-creator of Angel. Grimm could be easily described as a mix between Buffy and CSI. I was gripped from the first little bit I saw of it and I think it's one of the more interesting new shows to come along. It's scary, exciting and perfect if you were that little kid sat in the library reading the real versions of the Brothers' gruesome tales.
