Review of Grimm

60 minutes

When Portland, Ore., homicide detective Nick Burkhardt receives a visit from his sick aunt, he gets an explanation for some strange events in his life. She informs him that he is descended from a long ancestry of "Grimms", not just chroniclers of fairy tales but hunters charged with protecting humanity from supernatural creatures. Soon Nick discovers that he can see the creatures, "wesen", who look merely human to most people, and he must bear the responsibility of his ancestors and deal with the mythology of the Brothers Grimm. As Burkhardt tries to cope with the newfound dangers of his life without alarming his fiancee and his partner, he becomes more knowledgeable about the ancient rivalry -- with help from a peaceable clockmaker.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

At first, I thought it was gonna be about the Grimm tales then I won't say I wasn't disappointed but I kept watching. I'm a big fan of German but I think there are one too many German words in the show. The way it is organized slows the story and the plot down so it's a little hard to binge watch more than 3 episode in a row, this is more a week to week show because it can get repetitive.
