    Chuck and Grimm return in Dec, as Dorian Harewood (annoucer) said on both their end credit studio logos.
    Next week is Thanksgiving weekend.

    Given the current Misc avatar contest RJDiogenes should appreciate parts of this ep. :p

    It seems they're borrowing from sources such as Vampire: the Masquerade and whatnot and having each city or state ruled by the local bad-ass. This episode showed us that Renard (the Fox?) is the prince -- for a lack of a better term at the moment -- of Portland at the very least.

    Monsters seem to be much more common and far more integrated into society than we may be assuming as well. Nick's running into them an awful lot now that he can see them, though I wish they'd explain that special vision a bit more clearly. It doesn't really make a lot of sense as is.

    Ah, are they doing a riff on Frog Prince. I definitely must check that out. :D

    THAT'S the show I was thinking of when Renard was speaking to the Grimm Reaper (I love that pun). Shame the death of the lead actor of that show prevented it's continuation.

    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!

    How about the first episode, when they break into some guy's home, attack him, and when he fights back and tries to flee, they shoot him down like a dog? :rommie:

    Wow, are they lucky the found the girl in the basement, or they'd be up for Murder One. Even so, their ahem policing technique should have raised some eyebrows. That's some Gestapo shit.

    yeah, the girls might be saved, but the case against the perp is busted.

    Okay, so not exactly The Frog Prince. :rommie:

    This was pretty good, questionable police work aside. They do manage to capture that Fairy Tale ambiance still. The richness and color saturation of the garden was beautiful.

    The weird thing is that the guy grabbed a bunch of stuff from his bureau when he fled, but he left the special frogs behind. Was he lying when he said they are endangered? Does he know how to get more (perhaps through the Frogomorph network)? What will become of the ones he left behind?

    Why would anyone watch this show for the cop stuff and care if it was right? It isn't Dragnet or Law and Order. Its about a guy who hunts down fairy tale monsters.

    ^Because the mistakes are painfully obvious.

    Still not seeing why anyone would care in a show like that.

    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.
