Talking to GRIMM co-creators (credit shared with Stephen Carpenter)/executive producers (with Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner)/show runners David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf have been working together for ages. For one thing,  their collaboration dates back to the screenplay for 1982’s feature film WACKO. Or you could listen to the way the two Los Angeles natives share opinions and complete each other’s sentences while talking about their current supernatural procedural drama GRIMM has its first-season finale tonight at 9 on NBC; it’s already been renewed for next season. David Giuntoli plays Portland, Oregon police detective Nick Burkhardt, who is still dealing […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: GRIMM star David Giuntoli talks about Season 1 and beyond

One of NBC’s breakout series this year has been the supernatural cop show GRIMM which features David Giuntoli as Portland, Oregon cop Nick Burkhardt who discovers he comes from a long line of “Grimms.” Translation: he’s someone who can see and stop the supposedly mythological creatures that exist in our world who want to wreak havoc. The series premiered in the unfortunate Friday night at 9:00 time slot last fall, yet thrived and grew even with pre-emptions and stiff competition from like-minded series FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL also occupying that time slot. At a recent event, Giuntoli spoke with ASSIGNMENT X […]Read On »

Smith Director: John Behring     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 10, 2012 I love it that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES can still have a season finale that not only shakes up most of the lives of the characters, but changes the game in significant ways. “The Departed” is a great example of how to get rid of unwanted or tired storylines, add new elements to existing storylines, and generally re-boot your […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Joshua Butler     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 24, 2012 The most important thing about THE VAMPIRE DIARIES episode “Do not go Gentle” is the fact that they are finally doing something with Alaric (Matthew Davis) that is worthwhile! For the better part of this season I have been railing on the fact that the writers just can’t seem to make up their minds in regards to what to do with Alaric. He gets smacked around, killed and […]Read On »

McQueen). Not that Mystic Falls has had a […]Read On »
