On NBC next Fall.  I like!

NBC has launched the first trailer for their upcoming fairytale-inspired series "Grimm", which you can check out in the player below.

Starring David Giuntoli, Silas Weir Mitchell, Russel Hornsby, Sasha Roiz, Bitsie Tulloch and Reggie Lee, the series is officially described as follows.

Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Well, those weren't stories, they were warnings.

Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things... things he couldn't quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he's not like everyone else, he's a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as "Grimms" who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey - albeit a reluctant one at first - as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can't quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a "big bad wolf." Literally!

While the Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, imagine if the villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.

From executive producers David Greenwalt (Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (Angel, National Treasure) comes a new world of police work where all cases have a storybook connection... but not always happily ever after.

I think I'm looking forward to this show more than any other.  Though at the rate Sci-fi shows are getting axed, its hard to get overly excited.  You know what I mean?

Maybe sometime in August there will be a fall TV preview podcast.  Like the summer movie preview we just had a couple weeks ago.  (Hint, hint.)

I caught this last night and really enjoyed it. Nice combination of funny and creepy. I think I'll keep watching.


agreed, I thought it was funny and creepy at the same time, which is hard to do.  So I'll watch again!

I have been and always will be, your friend.

I liked it. I thought it was alright. It's not exactly Buffy or Angel, but I'm gonna give it a fair try. So far so good.


This was ok. Don't know if I'll stick with it but will give it the Rico 3 tries. I wasn't sure what this was going be like and I don't normally do creepy/scary shows. It did make me think of Buffy and Angel even though I have only seen a handful of those shows combined.


I just watched and enjoyed it quite a bit.  It has a nice vibe and works well for me since I loved Buffy and Angel.  Definitely going to keep watching this one.
