Hello once again. It feels like ages since I last reviewed something, so I decided to start with something that I enjoy. For those who don’t know, Grimm has returned! It aired last night (Monday) at 10pm. The series picked right up where the finale ended, with Nick Burkhardt confronting his mother and his girlfriend, Juliet, is still in a coma.
There were many enjoyable things in the episode. Monroe is still there and was able to add the same comedic presence in a shorter amount of time. The casting of Nick’s mother was great, you’re not sure if you can trust her or not and she looks like she could beat you up. Now, I’m not sure if it is because of the time being moved up an hour, but the show felt more violent last night, which I loved. Bodies were torn apart, blood was everywhere and the show appeared darker.
I didn’t like that episode was a little sloppy at first. I consider myself a fan of the series, but even I forgot some things and they didn’t really cover any of it. There were moments where I was confused, which is never good for any show. It improved at the episode progressed, but that beginning nearly made my head ache. I also fear the series will fail on a night like Monday, so I hope it soon returns to Friday.
Episode Rating: 4/5
Season Potential: 4.5/5
Now you’re probably wondering why there are two ratings. Well that would be because one rates the first episode and the other is my estimate of how the season will rate at the end if everything goes right. At the mid-season point I will have another review seeing if the series is on track with my potential rating. I hope to make this the new process of reviewing TV shows, but I might not be able to do it with every television series that I watch. Thanks for reading and I can’t wait for more Grimm.
