My wife and I finished watching season 2 of Grimm on Amazon Prime and I have got to say, I love this show!!! So much so that it now takes a leap over The Walking Dead to take second place on my favorites list right behind my number one Person of Interest.
The first half of the first season is really just introductions to the world and my wife heard me say more than once, “I’m still waiting on continuity.” Well… by the mid point of the first season the continuity hits and the entire second season is drenched in it. I love it!!! Oh, I already said that.
The core characters are great and they all have perfect chemistry onscreen together. It has seriousness crossed with an awesome humor that is never over the top. The world of the Wesen mixing with our own brings up some of the great fairy tales but make no mistake, this doesn’t follow any fairy tale line for line. You can read the Wikipedia site for a greater detail of the plot but I’d just say skip it and watch it all the way through on Amazon Prime.
NBC has their first winner in a long time with Grimm. I do hope it can keep its audience when it moves back to Friday nights for season 3. I really hate it when they put a show on Friday nights.
As I said, it made the leap over The Walking Dead and I wouldn’t be too surprised if The Walking Dead doesn’t fall farther on my ladder. Season 3 was really boring with the dumbest decisions being made. The constant dour mood (which is to be expected in that situation) can only entertain for so long. I really liked Grimm’s second to the last episode of season 2 titled “The Walking Dead” and then the season finale which continued their take on zombies. It was… refreshing. It was refreshing right down to the screen fading to black and the words: “To be Continued, Come on, You Knew this was Coming” filling the screen and making you wish season 3 could start right now!!!
