Thank Grimm it's Friday! is our motto
Verified purchase
My husband and I love the Grimm series. We like the characters and the story lines. Plus, we had the surprising thrill of hosting David Giuntoli at our B&B in Oregon; what a nice guy. (You can read all about it on my blog post if you want.) Also hosted Jacqueline Toboni (aka Truble) right after she landed her recurring part--a very sweet young lady. Thrilled that two stars from our favorite show have turned up on our doorstep! Thank Grimm it's filmed in Portland!

Down-hill to up-hill
Verified purchase
Grimm is one of my favorite series, I recently found it on amazon prime by mistake, and was more than happy that I did. Like all shows, they started to go down hill as the series progressed, however, unlike most shows, the way they went down hill, actually took an uphill turn. I was upset about the breaking up of Juliette and Nick, but then, as it progressed, it fit so well, that I enjoyed it. If I had stopped watching when things got disappointing, I never would have realized that I actually like the direction it took. The more I watched, the more happy I was with the break-up.
Adalind's character is one of my favorites. She is pure evil in the beginning, but with a hint of caring. Everyone once in a while she hints at not wanting to do evil. But Claire Coffee plays the part so well. Making it seem like she is going to be pure evil, but when the baby comes along, she begins to realize who is she, and what she has done. And I love the fact that forgiveness takes place gradually. She suddenly realizes she needs Nick and his abilities, but he won't forgive her just yet, and gradually he begins to forgive her for her wrongs.
I wish the 'zombie' Nick thing came back, and was better explained, I don't know if they will go more into that in the final season (6), but I hope they do. That theme could be really cool, but they seem to have put it on the back burner and only show it once in a while.
All in all, I may have been disappointed with the series now and again, but over-all, this is a must see show, that is both interesting, and funny.

SUCH A GOOD SHOW!
Verified purchase
SUCH A GOOD SHOW!! (warning: my review may contain spoilers, but I'll try to keep them out) My husband and I became addicted to this show about a year ago. Each episode is exciting and kind of like a fantasy CSI. The characters in the show are well-developed and you really get attached to some of them (Monroe!! <3) There are quite a few twists, but after watching it for a while. it gets pretty easy to predict who did what or who is the creature, etc. There are some scary scenes in some of the episodes, but it's a pretty tame show for the most part. Some of the creatures can be scary and there is some gory stuff, but I'm a big Walking Dead fan, so I'm a bad person to ask about goriness. Very little swearing compared to most other shows. No nudity, except for the occasional shirtless male. Still, I wouldn't recommend this show for anyone under, say 13, only because of the intense scary/violent scenes that often occur with each episode.
So if you're into mystery/crime shows, and also fantasy-type stuff, this is a great show to get hooked on.

'Grimm' is a welcome departure from the usual grim television series.
Verified purchase
This series continues to break all the so-called rules of a television series in that it just keeps getting better. The danger of every series is the writers begin to run out of ideas, and the series slowly but surely circles the drain, eventually being discontinued as viewership erodes. The 'Grimm' series was in danger of going this way, or so it seemed in the beginning. I figured that each episode would introduce yet another "vessen" creature, and the Grimm would beat these creatures senseless and triumph at the end of the episode. But, thankfully, the plot continued to become more convoluted. New characters were introduced that added dimension to each episode, giving the viewer more things to consider, encouraging us to contemplate the probable outcome. Every time I thought I knew how it would end, a new twist was added, until the fifth season, where there are so many possibilities that I cannot fathom what direction the series is going. This engaged my imagination, and got me entwined with the characters, the plot, the outcome of the series, and the "vessen" element. It has become a rich tapestry of intrigue that involves the viewer intimately. Even though the series is pure fantasy, it cleverly ties us to an involving and evolving alternate version of the known history of actual world events. If you enjoy the occasional departure from reality and seek diversion to all-too-predictable television shows, watch a few episodes of 'Grimm'. Give it some time, and I think you might like it as much as I do.

MUST SEE!

I'm totally into this show!!!!! I will not discuss the plot of this particular episode as anything I say could be a spoiler so I will just say....if you like the combination of mystery, horror, and love stories, THIS is the show for you! My husband and I watch with my 12 year old (she is rather mature in nature so I feel it's OK for her to see even though it can be ... ahem...a little graphic with the horror part) and so we have declared Saturday evening as our "Grimm" night! Bring out the popcorn! We usually view 2 episodes plus a repeat the one from the previous show. Yeah, we are hooked! (and David Giuntoli is NOT hard to watch, either!). Guess if this ever comes out in a complete boxed set, I'll be getting one for future watching. Meanwhile, thank you Amazon for putting this on your watch list!

Contrary to some viewers, this show is not a novice Still Life painting, but a high Craft of its type
Verified purchase
For some, apparently, Tulloch's character has been unpleasant or 'lightweight', and having no 'chemistry' with Nick.

I, however, find the entire series, and all the main characters, delightful.

As for one reviewer's estimation that the 'weak' Julliette character was gotten rid off in the end of Season 4, one of the episodes at and, or, near, the end of Season 4 clearly indicates otherwise:

Julliette had had a certain secret going's-on with 'Trouble' regarding Juliette's Hexenbiest issue. 'Trouble' had briefly been on the phone with Juliette, while 'Trouble' was in the passenger seat in some vehicle that I think was being driven by either Nick or Budd. This was prior to Juliette's going to kill Nick. Something was going on behind the scene for which Juliette needed 'Trouble''s help, but about which neither 'Trouble' not Juliette could tell Nick.

So I knew that the Juliette character was not being gotten rid of in the series moving forward.

So when I saw her getting killed at the end of Season 4, I knew she was not going to remain inactive in the series, but would soon enough come back in some manner.

So the reviewers here who thought that the series was getting rid of the Juliette character had failed to noticed much of what the writers, actors, directors, and etc., have been putting into this show from the very start.

This is not a show all about the action, or about the action plus some loner Grimm.

Rather, this show is as *a complex mystery drama-romance* as much as it is a police-procedural-with-a-fantastic-twist. From the very first (pilot) episode, this was established (when Nick's aunt Marie told Nick that he had to stop seeing Juliette because the life of a Grimm was "just too dangerous"), and has been reinforced ever since then.

More to the point, the very first scene with Nick, in the pilot, was reinforcing this entire complex. In that scene, we are given the basic premise for the entire show: (1) Nick is thinking of Juliette; (2) and he cannot look longingly at any other woman; (3) but then he for some reason is wondering something about Adalind Shade, and briefly watches her; (4) only to see her Hexenbiest nature-form show through; (5) We later learn that Grimms can see Vessen when Vessen are under some distress, yet Adalind in that first scene did not look distressed. (7) But as the first episode, and then the second, progresses, we learn that Adalind was after the key, and that that effort was no easy or simple matter.

...And, don't you know, Tulloch's character is named Juliette. Whether this name was on purpose or not, it sure fits the Romeo whom Nick is. Guintoli, who plays Nick, is half Italian (and half Polish-German, which fits the Grimm character as German). And even if Guintoli was not Italian, we see the Nick character often eating Italian at home, and that his favorite dish is some Italian dish.

There is so much that could be said about this show. Therefore, most anyone who cannot help but notice this show's actual details will find the show to be far more than some run-of-the-mill action-police-procedural-fantasy.

So, to be so concerned for this show's 'faults' is to miss most of what this show is about, and thus miss many of its ever-developing central points.

In sum: If this show fails to entertain, this is *not* the fault of the show. Rather, such a 'failure' merely is the consequence of the particular set of sensibilities *and insensibilities* on the part of those viewers who find the show less-than-worthwhile. Some people don't like tomatoes. Go figure.

I wrote the above review months ago. As I write these words, here and below, it currently is Monday, May 23, 2016, and I have just finished watching the final episode of Season 5 (Ep. 22, 'part 2' of the 2-ep 'Beginning of the End').

I could not have expected a better ending to season 5. It was perfect. I hope all goes well for everyone on the show, and I hope very much to see a Season 6. As I had hoped, Tulloch's character (Juliet) has returned! Now I get to find out (in a hoped-for Season 6) how Juliet's character is developed from here! Who is/was Eve, and why did Misner open a cell door and say to Trouble sitting there, 'It's time." ? Why was Trouble in a cell there, only to end up on a motorbike at Nick's secret loft? And who was Misner earlier than that violently doing something with in a cell, for which of which he came out with a bloodied lip? In the ending episodes of Season 4 (4), why did Trouble take a phone call from Hexen-Juliet and pretend to Bud that it was a routine all from Nick? What did Juliet want with Trouble for that phone call?

And, now,... at the end of Season 5 !, ...what has Juliet been through, and why did Trouble set her there and bid Monroe and Rosalie to continue on through the tunnel? Trouble said that this was a defense in case Black Claw came down after them.

But I think Trouble knows more than she is telling. Much more. As she had said something to that effect to Nick when he took her to the hospital. But then Black Claw agents who were her nurse and doctor were going to do something to Trouble when they told her they had to operate on her brain ! LOL. Misner and Nick came and rescued her.

...and now, at the end of Season 5, Trouble is there in the secret tunnel, sitting next to Juliet, and Juliet says to her...

A perfect ending to Season 5 !!!! !!!!

I didn't realize when I ordered Season 5 that it was still airing! For a second I really thought they ended the season on the last episode and I was freaking out! haha I love how this show messes with your mind during the "To Be Continued" episodes ("you had to see it coming," lol). I got really involved with this show; binge watching all of the episodes in about two weeks with my husband. I can't wait to see where they take the show from here since they've been renewed for Season 6. I wish they gave a little more info about those infamous keys, but I supposed we shall see. Still can't believe I am into a show that has a previous cast member from Road Rules as the main character, lol. Who saw that coming?!

Keeping Portland Weirdly Grimm
Verified purchase
I just moved away from Portland Oregon about 4 months ago. Portland has the beautiful scenery of a Northwest rainy dreary backdrop for Grimm, plus I could recognize some of the locations of the city in the program.
The un-official motto of the city of Portland is "Keep Portland Weird" which Grimm perpetuates in a grand way. From the city officials, who occasionally appeared in the program, to an overlay of liberal politics which permeates even the most conservative of individuals. Weird is the new normal in Portland. Even without the many examples of weird I may give of my 15 years in Portland, the TV series Grimm says It very well. I loved the non-political paranormal program Grimm. Good drama and a good story line of paranormal activity that actually makes you believe every person in Portland is some sort of shape shifting animal creature. I was fairly certain most of my friends in Portland were a weird animal shape shifter.
Perpetuating the motto of Potland from a safe distance in Arizona.
