Storyline

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

Trivia

Most, if not all, of the references and names are derived from German terms or real scientific terms. For instance, "Blutbad" means bloodbath, "Hexen" means witches, "Schaden" means misfortune or misery, and "mellifer" means honey-carrier. The terms are, however, not original German terms for mythological creatures. They've been made up for the series and most of them are "incorrect" German. Despite the NBC page translating "Schneetmacher" as a cold, evil person, for example, such a word does not exist in German. The queen of the mellifer is referred to as "Mellischwuler", which, translated, means "Melli-gay man" - a possible explanation for this might be that the word "queen" was mistyped "queer" when the word was looked up in a dictionary. Many "Wesen"-names are made up compound nouns, but often grammatically incorrect. Examples for this are the "Bauerschwein", "peasant pig", which -correctly composed- would be a "Bauernschwein" (in any case another creature name that does not exist in the German language of any time period). The same goes for "Spinnetod", which, correctly composed, would be "Spinnentod" (spider death). The right plural for Blutbad (blood bath) would be "Blutbäder". In the pilot episode, the Reaper Hulda carried a scythe that read "Erntemaschinen der Grimms", which translates as "Harvesting machines of the Grimms". 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.
