Movie Mondays: Grimm
I love Grimm Fridays! Yes I have bought into our fairytale creatures brought back to life as we know it.
David Giuntoli leads the cast as Detective Nick Burkhardt. He is living his life as usual but notices that things aren't quite what they seem. He begins to see that there is more to certain humans than meet the eyes especially when they morph into outlandish creatures right in front of him. His slightly scary Aunt turns his life upside down when she reveals to him that the stories are true and he can see different creatures like The Three Bears because he comes from a long line of Grimms. Nick's partner Hank played by Russel Hornsby is oblivious to his partners powers but is always along to support him in his cases. A bit of irony is thrown in when Nick befriends Eddie Monroe played by Silas Weir Mitchell. Eddie is the "Big Bad Wolf" but reformed. He is now a vegetarian. Eddie helps Nick to understand the creatures he is dealing with and how to fight them.
The show is mysterious, a bit gross, with lots of humor and adventure thrown into the mix. Finally a tv show that has rendered Friday nights a lot less boring! Check it out and tell me what you think.
