Approaching the end of its fifth season Fridays at 9 PM and renewed for a sixth, NBC’s GRIMM recently celebrated its hundredth episode. Bree Turner plays Rosalee, a foxlike Fuchsbau. When we met Rosalee way back in Season 1, she was an herbalist who inherited her brother’s quasi-mystical spice shop. Rosalee struck such sparks with Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a Blutbad watch maker who is also the hero’s best friend, that the writers crafted a romance for the two. Now Rosalee and Monroe are married, but with all the danger swirling around them, they’re hardly settled down. At a SAG/AFTRA […]Read On »

When NBC’s GRIMM, Fridays at 9 PM, recently celebrated its hundredth episode, the cast celebrated in a number of ways, including by speaking to a group of fellow actors at SAG headquarters. Among the panelists is Reggie Lee, who plays Portland, Oregon police Sergeant Wu. Over five seasons of GRIMM, poor Wu was out of the loop for longer than anyone. When he encountered an Aswang – a horrifying Wesen referred to in real-life Filipino mythology – detectives Nick (David Giuntoli), the Grimm of the title, and Hank (Russell Hornsby) let Wu think he was crazy rather than telling him […]Read On »

As GRIMM celebrates its hundredth episode in its fifth season on NBC, Fridays at 9, Claire Coffee’s character Adalind continues to go through changes. Adalind started in the opening episode as a malevolent Hexenbiest – a kind of witch she can shapeshift into a ghoulish guise. Since then, Adalind has lost, regained and re-lost her magical powers and had two children, the first by Zauberbiest Portland, Oregon police captain Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz) and the second by the show’s hero, police detective and monster-fighting Grimm Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli). Adalind is currently human and benevolent, but there are hints that […]Read On »

Santino Fontana’s character Greg Serrano may be a comparatively less loony person on the CW’s hour-long Monday night musical comedy series CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, but the actor’s own schedule looks pretty bonkers, as he’s simultaneously co-starring in NBC’s new Thursday-night police drama SHADES OF BLUE as NYPD officer Stuart Saperstein. The two shows could hardly be more different. CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna, as Rebecca Bunch, who gives up a promising Manhattan law career to move to West Covina, California, in pursuit of her oblivious crush Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). Rebecca’s daydreams tend […]Read On »
