​The Wild Hunt is no match for Wesen conservatism on Grimm

Remember this bit from my recap of Grimm's last episode, the first installment of this two-parter? "I can't help but feel we're going to watch the next episode and feel like they both could have been condensed into a really good single episode." Am… am I psychic? » 3/01/14 1:00pm 3/01/14 1:00pm

Grimm does another Wesen o' the Week episode, but it does it well

Grimm backtracked a bit after its last two excellent episodes, reverting to the Wesen-o'the-Week formula that it has used so faithfully — and consistently — ceaselessly, one might say — over the last few years. But the spirit of innovation is still kickin', and darned if it isn't used to tell us a story that's more… » 1/18/14 9:00am 1/18/14 9:00am

The attack of the zombie assholes continues in the Grimm premiere

True love beats douchebaggery in a schizophrenic (but good) Grimm

Did anyone feel like they were watching two separate Grimm episodes last night? Because for the first 35 minutes, I honestly thought we were getting the most boring, useless Grimm of the season. Then, shit started happening. Good shit. So good that we’ve got some actual momentum heading into the last two episodes. » 5/08/13 9:20am 5/08/13 9:20am
