What is it about Grimm that makes it special for me? I love the way this show combines the crime and mystery genre with fantasy and creates a world that’s interesting to both mystery fans and fans of fairy tales and the supernatural. That would be me.

About the Grimm TV Show
What are Grimms?
Grimms are people who are able to see mythological creatures for who they really are and Grimms are tasked with the job of finding and stopping the bad ones. Detective Nick Burkhardt is descended from a long line of Grimms, and his aunt has returned because she knows she’s dying and that Nick is about to be introduced to his heritage. This is where Grimm opens in the first episode. In later episodes, he continues to make discoveries about his heritage and the creatures he keeps running into.
This is a show I expected to like, but after reading an advance review, I worried I wouldn’t enjoy it. I’m glad I watched anyway, because unlike the reviewer who wasn’t impressed by Grimm, I’m quite happy with the show and didn’t find the first episode to be anything but great to watch. In fact, Grimm was one of my favorite new shows of 2011.
Grimm has a place in my list of all-time favorite TV series.
