Nick Burkhardt, a promising Portland homicide detective, told nobody he's been seeing visions of people 'transforming' into monsters when he looks at them. While investigating the murder and disappearance of two girls, he realizes it's a Grimm family gift, which passes from his aunt Marie Kessler when she is dying from cancer. She also gives him a mysterious key. Nick becomes her attacker's next target, narrowly escaping. Nick discreetly uses his gift to track down a postman, who turns out to be a descendant of werewolf lineage, and who helps him find the violent monster. Written by KGF Vissers

In Portland, Detective Nick Burkhardt and his partner Hank Griffin investigate the murder of a college girl that was slaughtered by a beast while jogging in the local park. Nick lives with his girlfriend Juliette Silverton and they are in love with each other. He has visions of people turning into monsters but he does not disclose his secret to anybody. When his beloved aunt Marie Kessler unexpectedly comes to his house, Nick learns that Maries is dying of cancer. Further, she tells that he is descendant of the Grimm brothers and he has the ability of seeing monsters, and she gives a mysterious key to him.

When the little girl Robin Howell vanishes while walking to her grandmother's house, Nick suspects of the Blutbad Monroe. But soon he leans that Monroe in not evil and he helps Nick to seek-out Robin. Will Nick find the little girl and rescue her?

"Grimm" is a promising TV series, with an entertaining story of monster. Nick is a pleasant character, his terminal aunt is intriguing and Monroe is very funny. The cinematography of this show is very beautiful and the story recalls the first shows of Supernatural. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Piloto" ("Pilot")
