Ya, I am reminded of Heroes with this show. NBC has had a few gems though. Let's pretend this will be one.

I'm hoping the Friday death slot doesn't work against it too much.

When was the last time NBC had a gem? It's been years and years unless I'm forgetting something.

Oh for sure. I can't think of anything post-Friends really, but I was just saying they exist. But, you're right, the problem is they're few and far between and not in the recent past.

Well, let's hope Grimm turns out to be a rare NBC gem, because I really like it! LOL!

Agreed. NBC better not slaughter this.

The glory days of ER and Friends are definitely behind them.

The cinematography was great. It was so damn colorful. And the show is pretty dark, but has good comic relief, with the good wolfman guy.

Sneak peek of Friday's epi located here:
http://www.tvguide.com/News/Grimm-Go...e-1039299.aspx

Quote:
In the world of Grimm, everyday crimes like breaking and entering can unlock some surprising dangers.

On Friday's episode (9/8c, NBC) Nick and Hank (David Giuntoli and Russell Hornsby) investigate a home-invasion case and run across a family with a cultural background including a barbaric history perhaps best left in the past.

NBC is reairing season 1 throughout the summer starting with the pilot tonight at 10est. I'd catch up. Def cool twist to the overdone procedural. It got better and better as the season went on. Looking forward to season 2.

Not an award winning show by any means, but its a good genre show. The mythology definitely progressed as the season went on. Otherwise it would have lost me.
