Alright, the show doesn't premiere until Oct 28, but I just finished watching the pilot. If you guys are interested, follow @NBCGrimm on Twitter. They're giving away codes to watch the premiere online before the 28th.

Anyways, I think I'm going to like it. I actually jumped a couple times. Perfect time to premiere it around Halloween. LOL It's like a procedural mixed in with the "fairy tale" theme, given it's called Grimm. Couple plot holes in terms of the non-human aspect of the show, but I think this could be a hit with a pretty hard core cult following.

Definitely worth watching, in my opinion. I'll be watching week to week. It'll be interesting how this compares to "Once Upon A Time" on ABC

Ya! Don't you think the pilot was pretty well done?

And I jumped twice during the episode. Once when the girl was running and found the little statuette and the second time was when the dude jumped through the window to scare Nick.

I plan on watching. It just looks very interesting.

It is, I really like how they did the pilot. I think you'll like it.

Two Words: Holy Shit.

I don't even think one can compare it to Once Upon a Time because they're completely two different plot points.

Wow, well done NBC. Good show!

Ya, initially I thought these two couldn't survive on TV premiering the same season because of the fairy tale thing. But they're tackling the fairy tale theme from completely different angles.

Love it! My husband and I thought it was great. We are now DVR'ing Once Upon a Time and Grimm - probably our two favorite shows!

My wife just watched the first one so I watched it with her. It's original and damn beautiful to look at, that's for sure. I just get nervous with NBC. They have a way of screwing things up. Heroes started out strong, then turned to crap.
