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

But I was thinking "the other way round" about why Wessen Hitler might want to exterminate the Jews is possible, if the Jews weren't Wessen Jews?
Maybe Grimms can only see a certain percentage of the world's Wessen (and why can't I stop thinking of Wesson Oil when I write that?) and in fact the Jews are the only real people on the planet? The rest of us are all Wessens of one ilk or another, we just don't know it. (I dibs lynx!)

What kind of Wessen is Ahmajinedad? Definitely a rodent of some sort or possibly a dung beetle.

There are all kinds of ways to get in trouble with this!

PS, ABC is doing a Grimm ripoff (not that Grimm is so original) called Gotham, about...wait for it...an attractive young cop who discovers that supernatural criminals are lurking among us in secret.

But this cop is a cute female. Since Nick's girlfriend clearly doesn't understand him, maybe he should move to New York and join forces with Gotham Girl.

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

Now, I remember really liking Gotham Girls.

A flash Animation toon you could download for free from the Dc Comics Website 10 years back, about the hijinks some of Batman's villainess's got up to when no boys were not around.

The producers of Smallville must be cewing tinfoil to calm themselves over this, they so wanted ot make a show called 'otham' but they were not allowed to. Poor bastards.

It hasn't been picked up (a couple months too early for that) but it's likely.

It's Ahmadinejad. And you should see the caricatures from groups opposed to him (i.e. People's Mujahideen) and the theocracy that's stifling that nation.

Oftentimes they compare him to a bumbling monkey, so who knows, in the world of Grimm he might turn out to be a monkey-man.

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

I really enjoyed the episode, although I do agree that Hitler thing might have been a little over the top. Really enjoyed seeing the Man in Black from Lost. I'm wondering if the coins were a one time thing, if they'll be playing some kind of role in the building story arc.

Juliette gets the coins and her character gets more interesting.

I was just thinking, I would love if after all of these complaints about how useless she's been, if it turned out that Nick's girlfriend (Juliette?) was the Captain's boss or some other kind of big bad.

They can phase her out. After all, Barney Miller had a wife when that show started, and the show improved when they dropped her character.

Delete the Wife?

Where have I heard that before?

I watched Quarterlife recently where I thought she had quite some range.

If you're talking about the actress who plays the girlfriend, I have nothing against her. She's done a fine job with what she's been given, but the stuff she's been given just hasn't been that interesting in most of the episodes.

Yeah, no complaints against the actress. The character just doesn't really exist.

Fire dancing girl was hot.

Loved Nick and Monrow going off to rescue the damsel in distress from the evil fire breathing dragon bit.

Nick and Monroe in the club were hilarious.

A dead beheaded Grimm found in Europe. Must be the Reapers. Is it a one off or are they now hunting Grimms?

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

This show has definitely improved since they upped Nick's intensity. He's a stronger presence in scenes and he plays off Monroe's sardonic humor better too.

Ratings still solid from last week.

The long term trendline is here, in lovely chartreuse.

I think Juliet is on her way out of the show. Other than being the damsel in distress and someone for Nick to keep secrets from, her role in the story is pretty thin. Having Nick's personal life destroyed because of his Grimm-ness could be a good pivot for the story, to up the stakes for S2, now that he's had to sacrifice that much.
