Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Eh, the ratings dropped. Not fatal or anything but obviously NBC's attempt to get new viewers didnt pan out. The writers apparently didnt get the memo since they failed to deliver what could have held onto viewers - more action, more Monroe & quips, less talk and backstory. I appreciated it, but new folks wouldnt care about the backstory or characters without context.

This week's episode was particularly good, so quality is not the issue. Its a niche show, NBC should just accept that and put it back on Fridays (which is the plan anyway). Its still doing great in comparison to NBC overall. If their new season is a stunning success, that might change the calculations, but Im not betting any money on that happening.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

^How much more action do you think they need? we did get 2 knockdown drag out fights to the death and one room trashed due to someone writhing in pain in this episode. Monroe and foxy chick also got quite a few Scooby Doo lines in as well.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I really enjoyed this episode. The only complaints I have is I was hoping Jessica Tuck and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio would stick around longer. Although MEM could, and probably will, come back later.
At least we have James Frain to help make up for the loss of Tuck.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Okay, I have to admit I am actually enjoying season 2 after the IMO mediocre season 1.

The Mommie Dearest twist at the end gave me hope...

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Caught up with these opening two episodes last night. This show's definitely come back strong, and the uptick in quality near the end of last year is increasing for sure. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.

Also, Bree Turner's Rosalee is absolutely a great addition to the show - really brings a lot. I loved her giving Mama Grimm a hug.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Yeah, I loved the looks on everybodies faces when she hugged her.
One thing I still haven't been able to figure out, is whether or not there are more Grimms out there. I know they keep saying he's "one of the last Grimms", but I wasn't sure if that actually meant there were more out there.
And would they all be related? I've never been able to figure out if they're actually supposed to be direct decedents of the Brothers Grimm, or if the name was just inspired by them.

Well, we got some backstory from Kelly in the first episode of the new season, that the Grimms apparently are the descendants of seven knights - or was it just knights that worked for the seven royal families? - that took part in the Fourth Crusade. And they made seven keys, one for each, because they didn't turn over something incredibly powerful. That alone makes them 500+ years older than Jacob and Wilhelm. The impression I got was that they're all related, albeit very distantly after so much time. And from what Kelly said, the "calling" of a Grimm is random from those with potential (not unlike Slayers?).

That's right. I did see the episode, I just forgot about all of that.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Ok, I'm forgetting something...Adalind got Juliette scratched by the cat, putting Juliette into the coma, etc. What happened to Adalind? I thought Nick took her out. No? She got away? Damn! Can't remember.

Loving the show, though.

Nick's blood turned Adeline Human, negating her Hexenbeast Power.
She then proceeded to skip town.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Nick turned her human before Adeline poisoned Juliette. The poisoning was her revenge. She skipped town after.

Good episode tonight. Nice to see Hank finally let in on things. And hey! the bad guy was on 2 different networks tonight, being the big bad on Alphas right now.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Ah, I thought that was Stanton Parish. I am so glad that he actually told Hank. I hate it when they drag out the whole "I've got a secret" storyline. They did pull the whole memory wipe thing with Julliete, but at least with her it does seem to be playing a fairly important part of the story. Unlike a lot of shows where they just do it long enough for the victim to forget about "the secret" and then move on.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

Loved how Hank was like, "Oh, ok. At least I'm not nuts."

I got "Adalind" from the closed captioning. We tend to leave it on.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

I liked that they didn't go the cliched route with Hank finding out and then having him pissed at Nick for the next few episodes. Instead he's just relieved that he isn't crazy.

So essentially these guys were going to gang rape a 17 year old girl? That's pretty dark for a network show.

Re: Grimm, season 2 thread.

^^^ One of the big things I love about this show is that they don't seem to embrace cliche's for the sake of a quick wrap-up or sloppy storytelling. Other examples elude me at present, but I've always been impressed at the writing, which has only gotten better.

Poor Nick. He just can't catch a break with his woman. Early on, I had hoped that she might have been the descendant of an ancient Reaper clan or one of the royal families, but now I'm starting to think she's generally kind of pointless to the overall plot and provides nothing more than a source of continuous angst for the main character. I dunno...maybe they can write her out of this soon with her lack of memory.
