Did you catch Grimm’s debut last night? DVR’d it because of the World Series (congrats to the Cards, btw) and even though I’m not one for any bit of gruesomeness, I found myself hooked from the get go. Again, I can’t stress enough how much I really don’t watch or read anything horror related, so for me to even sit through a show like this for more than two minutes speaks volumes. Heh. It certainly held my interest. If you missed it, no worries, NBC will re-air Grimm tonight at 9:00 PM EST! Check out some video highlights from the show below.
How did Grimm’s debut fare in the ratings? Yes, it did go up against Game 7 of the World Series, but it did pretty well, considering, garnering 6.49 million viewers.
The show did a good job of introducing us to the characters and was easy to follow. Nick (played by David Giuntoli) is a homicide detective who finds out from his sick aunt (played by the amazing Kate Burton) that he is in fact the last of the Grimms, which explains why he can see the crazy zombies and we can’t. And so the premise is set. He tries to keep that little tidbit from his fiance Juliette, played by Bitsie Tulloch, and his partner, Hank, played by Russell Hornsby.
It’s similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is no surprise since creators David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf are from the all things Buffy era (Greenwalt was an executive producer on Buffy during its early years and Kouf served as a producer for Angel).
It has a lot of potential, especially with the humor of Silas Weir Mitchell, who plays Eddie Monroe, a reformed ‘Blutbad’. A scene stealer, for sure. Will I tune in again? Most definitely. How about you? What did you think of Grimm’s debut?
