The first two episodes have been fun - sort of Buffy-lite. Wish there was a book licence... I'd give it a go.

S1 EP12 "Last Grimm Standing"
A bizarre double homicide leads Nick and Hank to a boxing gym, which Nick discovers is a supplier for a darker, ritualistic fight club in the creature world. When Monroe lends a hand and gets in over his head, Nick must dig deep and find his inner “Grimm” to defend him.

Ugh...this ep was ok. Juliette is useless...they got to find something for her other than the angsty girlfriend...or kill her off. As usual Monroe is great and I like Hank alot more too. Next week looks like it might be good.

Re: Grimm (NBC) Season 1 Discussion *Spoilers!*

So, Grimm has been hiding any further affiliation with Munroe from Hank. Yet tonight he casually mentions that Munroe found a lead to the fighting matches and Hank makes no comment about it. Also, the combatants are being fed the remains of dead combatants, WTF are the cops going to think of this?

ETA: Next week smoke monster man makes an appearance on yet another genre show.

I thought the overall plot was OK, but I really liked the stuff we got from the Captain. I'm curious to see exactly what they're setting up with his arc.

Re: Grimm (NBC) Season 1 Discussion *Spoilers!*

I liked it - good combo of character/story development, worldbuilding and action.

The girlfriend stuff was ham-handed. Couldn't Nick explain that he'd just been involved in a huge bust of a hideous operation happening right on the outskirts of Portland, that kidnapped homeless people and drug dealers and forced them to fight to the death? She'll be hearing about it on the news in any case.

Can you imagine how big that story would be? That's not the kind of thing that happens every day, even in someplace like New York City, let alone Portland. If anything's going to take priority over an anniversary dinner, I'd say that qualifies. And anyway, he did make it home that night.

Of course all sorts of weird shit has been in the news lately. Juliette should be less concerned about the future of her relationship with Nick and more concerned about the frighteningly accelerating breakdown of society, of which Portland seems to be the epicenter.

Re: Grimm (NBC) Season 1 Discussion *Spoilers!*

i actually thought that they were Grimms in the beginning.

I mean, what's he going to do when some other Grimm's roll into town and slaughter a few hundred monsters from one side of the town to the other which look like regular people?

hunt his own kind?

Re: Grimm (NBC) Season 1 Discussion *Spoilers!*

Now there's an idea!

It's nice that the morality of this show is far from pat. Some Weissen (is that the right spelling?) are bad, some are innocent and deserve protection. Nick can't just take the attitude of hunting them all down, and might be in the position of needing to protect the innocent ones from human authorities. Monroe for starters, but there will be more.

I think I read somewhere that he was supposed to run into another Grimm, or at least someone who knows about Grimms, in an upcoming episode.

Re: Grimm (NBC) Season 1 Discussion *Spoilers!*

What happens to a cow vermin species when their natural predators are "removed'?

(I'm talking about humans.)

In Universes where there is a predator species culling us back at such an extraordinary rate, you would have to think that without a predator species keeping things in check that humanity would quickly drown in its own shit.

Maybe the road toll, and heroin ods stats were inflated, hell mmaybe they even made up this bullshit about cigerettes giving poepel cancer just to explain away all the hundreds of thousands of dead bodes every year?

People, tribbles... No difference.

So far I love this show. A few pieces of episodes I got lost here and there but it was very easy for me to catch up. Good premise.
