So here’s the thing I love the cast of Grimm. They never take themselves seriously, well accept Silas Weir Mitchell (watch my Recap Video for my funny Silas story) and always fun to spend a little time with at SDCC. I generally end up having a drink with several cast members at NBC’s annual SDCC party. Never got a chance to visit the set though. With that said, I run hot and cold on the show. Grimm airs on NBC Friday nights.
The second episode of Grimm’s (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) final season, Trust Me Knot, ramps up the tension as the second consecutive fight-free episode plays out like a supernatural Hitchcock thriller.
NBC’s Powerless follows the people who try to protect the powerless from the collateral damgae caused by superhero/villain battles.
Starring Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi and alan Tudyk, Powerless premieres on Thursday, February 2nd (8:30/7:30c). Mett the team following the break.
The world of Oz has been revisited and reimagined seemingly dozens of times now and the end result is NEVER good. NBC is taking their own shot at finally getting the material right in their latest; the 10-episode event series Emerald City. The kind folks at NBC gave me the entire series to review, I’m going to try to avoid spoiling anything past the 2nd episode and will pretend like I haven’t watched the entire thing. Although, I desperately want to talk about the back half of the season, more than the front. The 2-Hr Series premiere debuts January 6, 2017.
Grimm (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) returns for its sixth and final season with a taut thriller of a season premiere, Fugitive.
Powerless, a comedy that follows Emily Locke as she begins work as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and The Blacklist: Redemption – in which the world’s most elusive criminals from Red Reddington’s infamous Blacklist come together to form an elite mercenary team as they try to regain their self-worth after a lifetime of inflicting damage on the world – are the feature attractions on NBC’s mid-season schedule.
Also new are comedies Trial & Error and Great News, and One Chicago series, Chicago Justice.
First season hit Little Big Shots and the second season of Jennifer Lopez’s cop drama Shades of Justice begins its second season.
Strangely absent from the schedule at the moment: the sixth and final season of Grimm.
