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 »

While staying at a getaway cabin, Nick discovers there’s a Klaustreich (Josh Randall) abusing another creature lady Robin (Azura Skye) who can essentially lay a golden egg (well, […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a […]Read On »

TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau”

Stars:David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Noberto Barba Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 2, 2012 The good news about GRIMM is it’s found a pretty comfortable weekly police procedural structure that always ends up involving monsters usually derived from the Grimm fairy tales. The bad news is the series tends to be a little redundant at times and the CGI-creature effects often take you out of the show. That said, “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau” is an okay episode that brings a little […]Read On »

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers: Dan E. Fesman & Alan DiFiore Director: Peter Werner Network: NBC, airs Fridays Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 Consider “Tarantella” an episode somewhat higher than normal on the ick factor for GRIMM, not to mention the attempt at sad and tragic which felt like the writers had written themselves into a corner because there was no satisfactory way to end it. An art lover (Nicholas Gonzales) is talking to his girlfriend on the phone while he’s dissing the art at a gallery opening, and while […]Read On »

Luckily, the show itself is called GRIMM and thankfully it’s anything but. GRIMM is from ANGEL co-creator […]Read On »

Movie Review: TANGLED

For those jonesing for an animated Disney fairytale in the traditional style, or just a fun film that can be shared with the kids, TANGLED fills the bill. Quick, to the point and entirely enjoyable, TANGLED takes the traditional Grimm story, gives it some action and the title princess some gumption and takes off in beautiful style, looking much like the old enchanted films of yore, with 3D that brings up a couple of moving moments and is otherwise unobtrusive.
