Grimm > Grimm Review: Brewing with the Enemy > Comments Page 2
I loved it! I'm hooked, can't wait till the next episode.
I did not like this at all. After 20 minutes I was so bored that I actually turned the tv off.
i don't love it. it's basically supernatural. when i saw the opening i was like woah, flashback! i think i like once upon a time better. the av club pointed out that once upon a time is magic, they can do whatever they want. with grimm, why is this happening? does it happen everywhere? like, what exactly ARE they? i'd rather just watch fringe. which i will DEFS be doing
This show has possibilities and I liked the reformed wolf as a sidekick too -- but whether that will pan out isn't clear yet. I would like to see him work on cases ... but his boss is the ultimate evil? and there's some big V-like conspiracy below the surface? Is that going to be the thrust of future episodes? I will watch again, but only could give the episode 3 stars for mostly the same reasons as the reviewer, I guess, and I do want to like this show. It just didn't settle the matter with the pilot.
I enjoyed the pilot. There was a lot to explain to set up the series and I thought they did a good job of that without overwhelming viewers and leaving room for the show to grow and deepen. The procedural format may not be for everyone, but it might be a good way of keeping "Grimm" from falling into the two most common traps of mythology shows: (1) getting so caught up in the importance of the characters/shows/myth that it stops being fun; and/or (2) creating a myth that's so complicated it's practically a full-time job to keep everything straight.
love the show! read all the Grimm brothers' books and can't wait how they interpret other monsters from their tales. good actor picks fr the roles but i wish his aunt didn't have to die, she is one bad ass auntie and the actress is charismatic enough to grab attention. but she will have to die or his road will be too easy and he also needs to inherit all the powers from her.
the reformed wolf was great and Nick was desperate for answers and he was his last clue left to save the girl. besides by that point he probably was so dazed with everything he was grasping at straws just to see that there is at least some rhyme or reason in all these craziness.
i don't want t start comparing it to other shows just yet, i want to see where and how they will move forward, but i don't watch Fringe so i am not in a position to compare with that anyway. Although i like the detectivy feel of it in comparison to Once Upon a Time (though i loved that show too).
I loved the show, I haven't ever read the books or anything, but loved the show, will be there every Friday to see how Nick handles his new found life.... :)
