Portland detective, Nick Burkhardt, has seen some gruesome crime scenes, but nothing prepares him for the strange visions he begins seeing: seemingly regular people momentarily transforming into hideous monsters. A visit from his only living relative reveals the truth. Nick has inherited the ability to see supernatural creatures, and as a "Grimm," he is tasked with keeping the balance between mankind and the mythological. A reformed "Big Bad Wolf" becomes his greatest (and also reluctant) ally and confidant. It's not long before his work as a policeman leads Nick to the criminals he once thought were only found in fairy tales. Written by L. Hamre

Did You Know?


Wu is not referred to by his given name but rather by his surname. In the third season, Wu's first name Drew is first uttered.

It was mistakenly believed that the same was the case with Monroe, his first name supposedly being Eddie. Some sources even reported Monroe being called Eddie in the pilot. However, this is not to be found in subsequent airings of the pilot. Whether it was edited out or 'retconned' by the producers remains unknown. The fact that Monroe is his first name is further supported by Monroe's parents calling him "Monroe", which they theoretically wouldn't do if they shared it as a last name.

Silas Weir Mitchell has gone on the record to state that Monroe's name is "just Monroe", adding that the name Eddie mistakenly got published. See more »

Will this fairy tale have a happy ending?
24 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After viewing the pilot of this show, I think it has a lot of potential. Yes it follows the tried and true formula of expose modern individual to some sort of secret war/history/duty/etc, but there is a lot they can do with it from there. It did its job as a pilot: introduce characters, introduce conflict, and give you the general idea how the episodes will go. I think it is about time we had a new show that runs the good old man vs. monster bit, especially one that isn't prone to becoming some touchy-feely WB-esque teen drama. While its too early to judge the show as a whole, it promises good things. I hope it delivers.
