Be careful what you wish for, Amazon.com

I thought I'd buy the digital on Amazon, one ep at a time, as I had a chance to watch. But I had to stop even before finishing the pilot, because, while I really enjoyed the show itself, I didn't appreciate the commercials which broke in about every ten minutes. The breaks didn't coincide with the show's normal ad breaks either, one moment I was watching Grimm, the next a commercial, and not even a fade to black in between. I got disgusted and I never made it to the end. Commercials during a video I own. This makes buying video content from Amazon quite unappealing to me.
So I went offsite and bought the season on Blu-Ray for less than the cost of the digital. If you like the show or the movie, owning the discs ain't a bad thing at all. And Grimm looks like a show I'll enjoy--on my own Blu-Ray discs, that is.
Four stars, possibly five, for the show--and a big minus for the commercials.
