Pilot Thoughts: Grimm

I finally watched the Grimm pilot last night, and I was pleasantly surprised! I had heard very mixed things, but I really liked it a lot. I liked the traditional procedural structure with the added bonus supernatural elements, and the way it seems they're trying to balance a full case of the week with Nick's ongoing attempt to figure out his heritage and what's going on. Since I'm a procedural fan, I think that aspect - and the way it grounds the show - is what makes me more likely to tune in every week to this rather than something like Once Upon a Time. And, of course, that format automatically gives the show a way to continue for future seasons, which can be a hard thing for high-concept shows to figure out.


  1. i am really enjoying both Grimm and OUaT, but I agree that Grimm has more drive to it. I find it pleasantly Buffy-esque in several ways (heritage, research, wide world of bad guys, unwilling assistant, etc). And Sasha Roiz, whose prettiness I missed when I broke up with Caprica.

  2. I've only seen one ep of Grimm and wasn't super impressed with it whereas I've watched all of OUaT and am gradually getting sucked in. Maybe I should watch Grimm's pilot.
