Grimm returns to NBC on Friday, March 8 (10/9C).
Detective Nick Burkhardt is a Grimm – he can see monsters for what they truly are – one of the last of his kind. The only problem is that he’s got a very short learning curb because now they will be targeting him.
The good news is that supernatural-themed sci-fi dramas have been making a comeback on broadcast TV, which is terrific for those of us who want to avoid the constant onslaught of reality series and even more standard cop dramas. The bad news is that NBC decided to make a bonehead move and schedule their new series GRIMM opposite two other already established shows within the same genre, CW’s “Supernatural” and FOX’s “Fringe.” Considering that the pool of viewers usually drawn to such shows is already rather small and currently fractured between Supernatural and Fringe, adding a third player into this mix makes no sense at all. Rather than trying to fracture the small pool even further, it would have made more sense to capture a greater sample of this genre’s available viewers by scheduling opposite, well, anything else the rest of the week that isn’t sci-fi!
The premise of GRIMM puts a new twist on the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm by having a homicide detective learn that he is a descendant of a group of hunters known as “grimms” whose job is to keep humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world living among us. The addition of the supernatural element certainly puts a twist on the typical cop procedural show. The real Brothers Grimm created their fairytales in the early 1800s. While we are certainly familiar with the cleaned up versions of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Frog, Hansel and Gretel, and Rapunzel (to name a few), many of these original tales had dark, gruesome and macabre elements. It is this scary element that GRIMM will be trying to capture.
If you are on Twitter, beginning today, you have the opportunity to catch the premiere of NBC’s Grimm [Fridays, 9/8C] – a full two weeks before its network debut. Also planned are a ten-city screening tour and 20-minute previews on a number of NBC-related websites.
