Nick Is Thrown Into the World of the Supernatural in 'Grimm' Premiere (VIDEO)

Making it even more awkward that it's airing opposite The CW's 'Supernatural,' NBC's new genre premiere 'Grimm' (Fri., 9PM ET on NBC) seems to share a lot of traits with it. Both shows feature people who track down and hunt those things of myth that nobody believes are real. On 'Supernatural' they're called Hunters and they're tackling what we consider urban legends. On 'Grimm' they're called Grimms and they take out creatures from fairy tales and nursery rhymes. In 'Grimm,' though, Nick has no idea what he is or what is happening to him when he starts to see the creatures for what they truly are.
