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

Hmm. Interesting that they would create a series derived from the Grimm Fairy Tales and then deviate from it in the third episode. Not a real big deal, but there are a ton of tales to find inspiration from, not just the half dozen or so that are popularly known.

Maybe they have grandiose notions about how many seasons they'll get?

Yeah, why run it into the ground in the first season. better to spread out the adaptations of known tales.

Countdown to a producer or writer giving a remark that they have at least four seasons planned out...


Last time I heard that was "The Event" and we all know where that show is now

Interesting, but not very similar to what we saw in the episode. Might as well have just been an original story.

This show is already much better than that. It was obvious almost immediately that The Event was a huge mess.

None of the stories so far have been that similar to the actual story except on the most shallow of surfaces.

Regardless, the point is that they are looking at the other Brothers Grimm stories despite the criticism that they weren't. Maybe, just maybe, they're more familiar with the subject material than you or RJDiogenes are.

Well, that's why I asked; I figured there had to be a bee story in there somewhere.

Where'd you get the idea that was criticism? I made it perfectly clear that I'm hoping they'll do that. I don't see any reason why they need to consider themselves limited by the traditional stories, since they're changing elements all over the place anyway. The only way this show is going to improve from its currently rather mediocre level is through greater creative freedom and daring.

And that bee story you linked to has virtually nothing in common with the story we saw. It's perfectly possible that the writers didn't know or care about it as source material, since they ignored it. The other stories have had more from the source material than that. The three bears had the "momma, poppa and baby bear" element plus the idea of Goldilocks raiding the fridge and trying out the beds. The Big Bad Wolf story had the red-hoodie element.

Well, that's why I asked; I figured there had to be a bee story in there somewhere.
No kidding. It could very well just be a coincidence. Anyway, given that it wasn't actually used for the show, it's surpassingly trivial.

Grimm is on the midseason schedule. Not a huge surprise, given the overall dire state of NBC's schedule.

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

I forgot to post a description for "Lonelyhearts"

Episode 4 “Lonelyhearts”
DEATH AND DISAPPEARANCE LEAD TO A LOCAL BUSINESS OWNER'S DISTURBING SECRET - After investigating a strange cluster of female deaths and disappearances, Nick (David Giuntoli) sends Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) undercover to get a whiff of a hypnotic suspect. In the meantime, a stranger shows up looking to avenge the death of his friend at the hands of a Grimm, but he'll have to get past Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz). Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch and Reggie Lee also star.
I am watching it now since I missed it last night.

If Renard is the boss/big-bad (which I may be wrong about), then why is he protecting our hero?

Gah! How did I miss that?! I'm watching the show for Sasha Roiz and never noticed his character's name?!

Well, now we at least know what he is!

(Though obviously even before Grimm, Sasha was clearly a fox! LOL)

So nice to see him going really bad with that reaper last night! When Sasha is good, he's really good, but when he's bad, he's better! Sigh - I miss Sam Adama.

So I guess that's it for 2011, huh? The show will probably be back for midseason, but it seems terminally stuck at a rather forgettable level of mediocrity and imiation-X-Files-ity.

It's too bad the whole series isn't about the Big Bad Wolf and his misadventures trying to fit in with normal society and occasionally stumble across other fairytale characters - good, evil and inbetween.
