LOVED this episode. It was nice to see a completely gray conflict. Noo good guys, no badguys, and Nick in between.Both bluttbads and pigs had a reason for the whole conflict, perfect reason. perfectly justified, perfectly underzstandable and at the same time totally wrong yet right.
NO ONE was the "right side". And in the end Monroe, who had almost nothing to do with all of it was the one who suffered the most in this old-age feud, having lost his family.
Okay this episode was BADASS.
The previous one, Three Coins in A Fuchsbau was already great and I LOVE the story-arc type of episodes, but this was even better. Let's see:
This show wins for being able to make Juliette PARTICIPATE AND HELP IN HER OWN RESCUE. Now thats how you do gender equality, tv. The show managed to pull off a "damsel in distress" situation without degenerating the target female into a damsel in distress. I might have been on the ante about Juliette at the start of the show, but so far she has shaped up to be a quite awesome badass normal. I loved how they used the whole "oh by the way, grimms are being killed all over the country" thing as a cold shower. Interesting on how it fits into the scheme of all things. ARIEL WAS AWESOME. Possibly best new side-character in the history of the show. So much chemistry with nick and so much dark crazy insanity. Please, appear again and again and again in this show. You can be the "Spike" of this show.
I just love how they "updated" the idea of a princess a dragon and a lair into modern times.
Next episode EVEN MORE on Renard and my favorite hexenbeast is back. Hopefully we will find out more about the overall mythology yet again.
Also can I just say that I LOVE how SENSIBLE AND SMART AND REALISTIC CHARACTERS ACT? CAN I? How they handled the jealousy scene? BRILLIANT AND REALISTIC. Nick taking time to explain where he is going, prove that Hank is going there to, etc, to Juliette? BRILLIANT. Also I am VERY interested in Ariel's backstory. The show REALLY left a lot to be told about it for latter times - how her mother died, what is that tattoo, how her father got the scars, why is she obsessed with grimms, etc.
I never heard of this where does this air?
nbc, on fridays(I think).
focuses on a guy who finds out he is the last descendant of a line of chosen monster hunters known as grimms and each episode "adapts" in certain ways, elements of famous fairy-tales(their original versions). The show is set in Portland which, for some inexplicable reason, is full of supernatural creatures.
The show is produced by the co-producer and co writer of first three seasons of buffy and the lead producer and writer of Angel The Series, David Greenwalt.
We already had red riding hood, story of three bears, queen bee, bluebeard, three little pigs, pied piper, jack and the beanstalk, hansel and gretel and so on and so on and so on.
The newest episode was a loosely adapted modernized version of "The Two Brothers" fairytale collected by Brothers Grimm
The show does not limit itself to german fairytales as it has already taken one japanese fairytale and there are plans to have some from italian folklore and so on.
Sounds like a more bad ass version of Once Upon a Time, lol. I should watch it during spring break. Wait this is weird though, is by any chance the title Grimm based off the Grimm brothers who wrote the folktales?
Yes, the idea is that they are part, most known part of the whole lineage of grimms. The very term "Grimm" defining that lineage is coined because of their popularity.
This scene war awesome!
So the show has been renewed for the second season which is great.
Also they just cast someone nicknamed as "Woman In Black", a grimm with mysterious past who has a recuring role through the second season, as well as appearances in the upcoming S1 episode.
I am not too sure on what to think on Juliette opening her eyes.On one hand it might be because of what Adalind did and what Adalind wants.On other hand it might be a side reaction Adalind did not guess would happen. We did see that there's something fishy about Juliette from time to time. Hank on other hand is going paranoid. Hopefully he gets stuff explained to him and recovers. The very fact that he has no idea on what the hell did he see is what is driving him crazy. overall a GREAT finale. Can't wait for S2.
