New TV Series Grimm



Did you like the Brothers' Grimm?  Who was your favorite character?
There's a new tv series "Grimm".  If you haven't seen it yet and you like dark fantasy, I recommend you give it a try.  It's a police procedural, a definite draw for those of us who like cop shows with a little something, something added in.  The hero is a Grimm, a monster hunter who hunts down creatures that only he can see.  It's an interesting premise. 

Maybe I like it because my vampire hunter series (Jess Vandermire Vampire Hunter) is also a police procedural with vampires.  I think it adds extra interest when there's a secondary story running parallel to the paranormal elements.

If you've found a new TV show that really good, I'd love to hear about it.

  1. Hi, Lina!
    Congrats on the new blog!!!!
    I haven't watched Grimm yet, but it's on my DVR waiting for me.
    My favorite new show is Unforgettable. I'm not even sure why, other than I loved Nip/Tuck and I'm psyched to hang out with Dylan Walsh again. I also like the premise (cop who has an intense photographic memory) and conflicts (same cop's sister disappeared when she was a kid and kidnapper/killer never caught AND she and her partner are exes). I wouldn't say it's the best show on TV right now (that would be The Good Wife, IMHO!), but it's entertaining.
    Hugs!

  2. Hi Joyce,
    I agree The Good Wife is very good. Lots of angst and who's guilty, going on. Harry's Law is very good, too.
    You know I haven't seen unforgettable. Must check it out. Thanks!
    Hugs right back!

  3. Lina, I haven't seen it yet, but I'm itching to! So many TV shows, so little time! And thanks, Joyce. I'd actually read about Unforgettable, got excited about it, then forgot to look for it. LOL. Will have to get on the ball....

    Oh! Word verification: godshies :)

  5. As a special favor to all the Grimm fans, I won't watch it in its first season. Any debut show I watch and like invariably gets canned. I'm still mourning Flash Forward...sigh!

    If it becomes a hit and sticks around until next year, it'll be safe for me to watch. :o)

  6. So true Norah, if we want to write (and we do!) we have to pick and choose the best shows and ignore the rest.

  7. LOL Deb, I know what you mean. And I loved Flash Forward, too. I can't imagine why that one didn't get picked up again.

  10. Lina,
    I haven't seen Grimm but I'm with Joyce on Unforgettable. Great premise, with technical assistance from an actress with that actual memory skill.
    For a complete change of pace, Tim Allen's new sitcom, Last Man Standing, is pretty funny.

  11. Susan,
    I didn't know Tim Allen had a new sitcom. Can't wait to see it.
