My new found love for TV series Grimm

Grimm_Season3_CastI started watching this last week. This only happened because most of the American shows I usually watch were on break. I needed to fill my time with something I’d enjoy but wouldn’t confuse the hell out of me. It was then I remembered that last month Cat had given me season one & two of Grimm. I started watching and now can’t understand why I haven’t been on the bandwagon since the beginning. Cat I thank you for opening my eyes to the sheer fairytale horror that is Grimm.

To begin with I thought umm it’s a bit slow but the more you watch the more questions you want answering and the more intrigued you become by these strange creatures which you’ve basically never seen before… I’m up to season 2 episode 3 and there have been no vampires, zombies, witches or ghosts… Not in the way we know them from popular culture anyways.

The storyline is pretty good and because Nick Burkhardt (who’s the Grimm) is a detective for Portland PD David-Giuntoli-as-Nick-Burkhardt-grimm-33631904-1538-2047the way he comes into contact with the wesen (the creatures) is very believable. It’s also nice to see that even though Grimm’s are old school hunters he’s actually made the effort to become friends with some… This doesn’t mean that it’s all friendly with no blood and gore.

So far up to season 2 I like Nick but I want to kick his ass so bad for these reasons. He’s basically told no one he can see these creatures since becoming the Grimm. The only people who really know are the creatures and they’re terrified he’ll just kill them. He has told someone else but I’ll let you find that out for yourself. His detective partner Hank Griffin has had a close call with a particular wesen and Nick has just left him to suffer on his own. If Nick and Hank were women everything would have been sorted and there’d be no more sleepless nights and nightmares for Hank. A major plot line that I need solving now is that just from watching you know the Captain Sean Renard is involved somehow but you don’t know how. This however (from what I watched last night) looks like it’s a big part of season 2. Yay!

So I really do like Grimm. I was up until 4am this morning watching so that really says something. It feels like it has lots of places to go in the storyline and it’s keeping us all glued to the screen. While it does this it’s worth watching. It’s also sneakily educational because it teaches you of the fairytales and stories of the Brothers Grimm. Here’s hoping that the series keeps as strong as it is now.

The third season is still airing in the UK on Watch.

Get ya TV ready!

Next week in America sees the launch of some of Well Did You Evah’s Favourite TV shows

Thumbl-cheer

Monday-

TV Castle

Castle is back! Season six, we get to finally find out whether Kate Beckett is going to accept Richard Castle’s marriage proposal. Along with personal drama, we get to witness murders being solved, with Castle’s witty take on things.

Expect Nathan Fillion, Detective Crime Drama, Twists, Nathan Fillion, Laughs and of course plenty of Nathan Fillion.

Tuesday-

TV NCISNCIS, season 11. Now it’s been no secret the actress that played Ziva David (seasons 3-11) Is leaving at the beginning of the season. So, be prepared for a new arrival. We were left at the end of Season ten with Tony, Ziva and McGee resigning and taking blame for all the charges held against Gibbs. The next scene we heard a gunshot after Gibbs was seen aiming a Sniper Rifle at FBI agent Fornell’s head (it’s not confirmed if Gibbs has shot him) So Season 11 should get off to a good start and clear some answers up.

Expect- Gibbs giving head slaps, personal drama, murder, McGee making no sense as he techno babbles.

Thursday- 

Grey’s Anatomy, Yup it’s back. Unfortunately, Cristina is said to be going this season. So Cristina, Owen may TV Grey'snever happen now, In true Grey’s tradition we can expect her to have a good send off. Grey’s left us again (like every season finale on this show) we were left on a cliff hanger. Meredith went into labour in the middle of a storm and a black out, Season 11 we should get to meet the Grey/Shepard family along with the new arrival of Baby Bailey, find out if Torres and Arizona can sort out their relationship out and also (among other things) if the Chief has survived an electric shock.

Expect- Drama, Medical stuff, Blood, Possibly death, to cry, to scream at the screen, possibly explosions, sex, lots and lots of relationship problems.

TV ElementaryElementary- Sherlock in America continues! Now we had a whole week a few months ago dedicated to what this show includes, I’m just going to mention that season 1 finished with the show down between Sherlock and Moriarty (who in this series is female and Irene). Season 1 ended sweetly with Sherlock naming a new breed of wasp after Watson, there was an air of uncertainty if this show was going to come back with a season 2 but I’m glad it is back.

Expect- Jonny Lee Miller, Crime Drama, An Intellectual main character, A kick ass Female Watson.
