Okay, so not exactly The Frog Prince.
Probably because it was based more upon Bluebeard instead.

When someone like me, who isn't a cop, isn't remotely familiar with police procedures, and doesn't watch cop shows, can tell something is total BS, then it's a problem. I don't expect a documentary, but I do expect that the allegedly real parts of the show to be passable as reality.

Then again, I think I might be dropping this show in the new year. It just isn't developing beyond the usual network fodder and I've just about lost interest.

Grimm gets a full season order and Thurs 10pm tryout.

Not surprising - NBC doesn't have a whole lot going for them.

I guess I'm different. On a show like Grimm, expecting the cops following the rules of real life cops is like expecting good science in Michael Bay SF Summer blockbuster.

I don't expect anything from a Michael Bay summer blockbuster. That falls below my tolerance level so I won't watch it in the first place. But maybe I should admit that Grimm also falls below my tolerance level.

I expect a reasonable suspension of disbelief from a tv show. If the cops are shooting unarmed people in the back and not getting in trouble for it - suspension broken.

I'm going to stop watching this show if they keep messing up the police work. There's no way a policeman (Russell Hornsby) would hop over a fence, jump through an open window belonging to a suspect in the case he is working on. Sure, he found those 3 captured girls, but that is totally against the law without a warrant or specific probable cause!
I've watched a ton of cop shows over the last 30 years and it's pretty par for the course. Though I've rarely seen a cop shoot someone in the back like they did on Grimm and get to stay on the job.

Because the premise is that Fairy Tale monsters exist in the real world-- therefore the real world aspect requires verisimilitude, if not realism.

Nevermind...I forgot Temis posted the news earlier.

[edit] Glad Grimm is getting a full season.

The real world of tv police procedurals actually not the world of reality. Cops on tv regularly do things that cops in real life would go to prison for and get sued civilly.

^True, but you still have to make it look realistic. Cops shooting people in the back and not even getting a slap on the wrist is not.

Exactly. That's why I said verisimilitude, not realism.

There would probably be a lot fewer injuries to officers if they'd shoot more people in the back instead of waiting for them to turn around and shoot back!

I'm glad Grimm gets a full season...I just hope it kicks it into gear soon and finds its groove.

Good point. The only other cop show I watch is Person of Interest, and there are plenty of howlers in that one, too. I guess I'm naive expecting any cop show on TV to depict things accurately.
