Grimm Spoilers: Creature Feature

The first seven episodes of Grimm came and went at the tail end of fall with a lot of promise. The show has yet to make the leap from good to pretty good or even great, but there's so much raw material there that you have to watch to see if it all comes together. Make no mistake, I enjoy Grimm, but I enjoy it while understanding that its ceiling is pretty high, considering the talent involved both in front of and behind the camera.

But how would the show move into its next slate of episodes?

For one, we have a whole lot of new fairy tales to interpret (and re-interpret). Hansel & Gretel will come to life in the form of Daryl Sabara and Hannah Marks; according to Entertainment Weekly, the two will appear in an episode titled "Organ Grinder" as homeless teenagers getting caught »

Synopsis for Grimm Episode 1.08 - Of Mouse and Man

19 December 2011 11:26 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

NBC's new series "Grimm" is on holiday hiatus until Friday, January 6th, but in the meantime we have a brief synopsis of its upcoming Episode 1.08, "Of Mouse and Man". While we've enjoyed several of the series' episodes so far, they really need to tighten things up a bit as we're finding the show to be quite uneven thus far.

In any event, here's what you can look forward to on the 6th:

"Of Mouse and Man" Synopsis (Airing 1/6/12):

When a man is found dead in a dumpster, the investigation leads to a sly snake and timid mouse.

Inspired by Grimms' fairy tales, "Grimm" follows Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt, played by David Giuntoli, as he battles supernatural forces. Bitsie Tulloch portrays his fiancée, Juliette Silverton, with Russell Hornsby as his partner, Hank Griffin, and Silas Weir Mitchell as his confidant, Monroe. Reggie Lee and Sasha Roiz co-star.

Grimm Ep. 1.07, “Let Your Hair Down”: Another strong episode as the creatures get more time

18 December 2011 11:16 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While investigating the death of a backwoods cannabis farmer, Nick glimpses what he thinks might be a Blutbad living alone the in the woods. This links to a case Hank has never forgotten: the unsolved disappearance of a little girl.

Grimm Season 1, Episode 7: “Let Your Hair Down”

Written by Sarah Goldfinger and Naren Shanka

Directed by Holly Dale

Airs Fridays at 9pm Et on NBC

Grimm is at its best when the writers use the fairytales on which the series is based as a jumping off point rather than a blueprint for the whole story. The weakest episode so far was “Danse Macabre” which attempted a too-literal interpretation of “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” and ended up giving us the slightly ridiculous spectacle of a man playing a violin to bunch of bemused looking rats – surprising, given that the writers of that particular rat’s nest were the originators »

Grimm Exclusive: Bitsie Tulloch on the Future of Juliette

16 December 2011 5:13 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Here's an interesting Grimm fact: Juliette was not originally a veterinarian.

While this vocation seems ideally suited to someone engaged to a detective investigating unusual creatures, Bitsie Tulloch tells me her character was portrayed as a baker in the initial pilot script. So, what changed?

"I think they realized there's only so much you can do with a baker," the actress said, adding that she actually has a dog and producers were likely inspired by her affection for it.

Grimm Promo: "Let Down Your Hair"

Can viewers expect to learn more about Juliette as the series goes on? She's been mostly on the sidelines so far, a fact Tulloch says is due to the writers amping up the mystery elements of the drama after early drafts.

"We're shooting episode 13 right now," he said. "And there's a little more of a reveal regarding my character then. The show is taking its »

David Giuntoli: I Eat Far Away From Grimm's Corpses

15 December 2011 6:51 PM, PST | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

David Giuntoli may play homicide detective Nick Burkhardt in NBC's fairy tale-tinged crime procedural Grimm, but in real life, he's not that stoic when faced with corpses — especially the fake ones used on the series.

"I'm not usually easily disturbed, but I've walked on the set and been absolutely disgusted to my core," he tells TVGuide.com. "I'll always remember where I was when I saw this specific crime scene [in 'Danse Macabre']. There were rats crawling out of the stomach, out of the mouth of a corpse. The corpses, the prosthetics are so real that until you touch them, your brain doesn't understand that it's fake. It's terrifying. There's a lot of eating lunch in my trailer far, far away from the morgue set."

Grimm First Look: Monroe's Holiday Bombshell!

15 December 2011 11:26 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Dunno about you guys, but when I think of people who could potentially outdo Martha Stewart at the decking of halls, I do not think of any character from Grimm. And, even if I did, I certainly wouldn’t think of Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell).

However, as this exclusive sneak preview of Friday’s episode (NBC, 9/8c) reveals, he’s got Christmas spirit, yes he does. And not only that, but, as Nick (David Giuntoli) learns, he has insight into how Santa manages to… well, manage at the North Pole that no one else does.

Meet Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel

13 December 2011 9:46 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Meet Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel

Scoot over Rapunzel. Watch your back Snow White. Hansel and Gretel are the fairy tale rock stars in the spotlight now. First on Boomtron we featured a first look at actors Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in costume on the set of their upcoming fantasy/ horror flick, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Now that dazzling new series, Grimm, on NBC, will also feature the infamous siblings. They’ll be younger for the TV series, which is what we’re accustomed to when it comes to the fairy tale anyway.

Set in modern day Portland, Grimm follows Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin, a couple of homicide detectives. Nick is actually belonging to a mystical lineage, which means it is his job to be a watchdog against supernatural creatures. Unfortunately, those supernatural beings are already loose among us.

According to EW, “Organ Grinder” is the title of an upcoming episode. »

A Preview of Grimm Episode 1.07 - Let Your Hair Down

12 December 2011 12:20 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

After a great start, the NBC series "Grimm" hit a little bump in the road with its fifth episode, but this past Friday night's installment saw the show return to form (thanks largely to the focus on Monroe's character).

A mysterious homicide deep in the woods leads to Nick and Hank reopening a long-aborted missing persons case.

Grimm Season 1 Episode 6, “The Three Bad Wolves”

After “Danse Macabre” being something of a disappointment, it’s nice to see Grimm back on form with this episode devoted to a retelling of The Three Little Pigs. This time around, the pigs have decided that the wolves richly deserve some payback. As the building safety experts of the Grimm world, all a vengeful Bauerschwein has to do is sabotage a gas pipe and…kaboom!…he can blow a Blutbad’s house down, whatever that sucker happens to be built from.

This is the first part of the weekend monster update, with more news & stuff coming in the next couple of days.

I got my Grimms confused in yesterday's post as it turns out. Tonight's episode won't be "Let Your Hair Down," but "The Three Bad Wolves." Rapunzel doesn't show up until next week.

Nick (David Giuntoli) is called to a suspected arson case, which exposes a longstanding family feud that brings Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) face-to-face with characters from his troubled past. While Monroe wrestles with restraining his wild side, it’s up to Nick to keep everything from going up in flames. Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Sasha Roiz and Reggie Lee also star.There are a few sneak peeks at THR and Dread Central. Spoiler TV has the promotional stills. Here is the teaser:

Bitsie Tulloch portrays his fiancée, Juliette Silverton, with Russell Hornsby as his partner, Hank Griffin, and Silas Weir Mitchell as his confidant, Monroe. Reggie Lee and Sasha Roiz co-star.

Grimm 1.05 "Danse Macabre" Review

9 December 2011 11:02 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Grimm 1.05 "Danse Macabre" Review

When talking about Grimm's last original episode (which aired in mid-November), I mentioned how badly I wanted the show to fully embrace its dark side, which features a lot of horror movie instincts. What has made Grimm such an interesting show to watch is how visually distinctive it is from (almost) everything else on TV and the show really asserts itself as something different when it piles on the dingy lighting, unique make-up/CGI, and intricately creepy details that keep its other worldly feel alive and kickin'. Simply, allowing Grimm to become a sort-of monster-movie-of-the-week could make for some fun TV.

Which may be why I was so initially drawn to "Danse Macabre", as it shows Grimm falling further down the horror rabbit hole to mostly very strong results. For one, it was arguably the most gruesome of the first five episodes, at least in »
