But to my surprise, "Grimm Season 1" ended up being a very solid urban fantasy show, with plenty of dark humor, mystery and some very creepy supernatural creatures. It could use a little more arc in its storylines, but it successfully meld police detective work with the stories of the Brothers Grimm. These are not children's fairy tales.
Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) suspects that he's going crazy when he keeps seeing strange things. But when his aunt pays a visit, she reveals that he is a Grimm -- part of an ancient line of guardians who are able to see the supernatural "wesen" (pronounced "vessen"). When she dies, she leaves Nick a trailer full of weapons, ancient books and potions.
With the help of the reluctant Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a Wieder Blutbad ("big bad wolf"), Nick begins investigating crimes that are committed by wesen... while also having to keep his identity secret from his partner Hank (Russell Hornsby) and beloved girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch).
Even as he investigates bizarre crimes that only he can deal with, Nick also discovers that a sultry Hexenbiest -- a wicked witch, in other words -- is bespelling his partner. And he begins to investigate the deaths of his parents, which may not have been an accident... and which were connected to whatever is going on.
"Grimm Season 1" has a pretty simple premise -- that all the strange creatures of the Grimm tales were real, and that they live secretly amongst us.Read more ›
Portland detective Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli)sees monsters and it's not because he's on drugs. Turns out Burkhardt is one of the last of the Grimms who fought and killed monsters that have preyed on humanity for centuries. Burkhardt like all Grimms has the unique ability to see the creatures masquerading beneath their human mask.
With the assistance of Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell)a reformed werewolf (or a big bad wolf in Grimm mythology)to help him understand the strange new world he's been dropped into, Burkhardt discovers that many of the creatures out there are just trying to survive while others have more insidious motives. Unfortunately there are those in Burkhardt's own police department who are undermining his efforts for their own mysterious reasons.
The procedural element of the show isn't quite as strong as the hunt for the various creatures but the show improves as the season wears on. I'd like to see better character development for Nick Burkhardt, his partner and fiance.
Updated for blu-ray: the transfer looks quite nice with a sharp, colorful transfer. Blacks are rock solid. Audio sounds quite nice with nice use of the entire sound stage and pulls you into the action without distracting.
The only thing I DISLIKE is the packaging. Normally how something is packaged doesn't factor into how I rate a set BUT the Blu-ray discs slide in and out of cardboard packaging.Read more ›
This is one of my favorite shows on television. Each episode is a different Grimm fairy tale or myth with a modern day twist is always full of thrills, chills, and fantastic creatures. The mixture of mystery, suspense, horror and humor makes this a must-watch show. ABC's aired its first season of the popular fairy tale series Once Upon a Time this past year as well. And though there are similarities, there is a decidedly different feel to Grimm. There is none of the corniness or fanciful magic of OUaT. This is dark and gritty, with a more realistic, modern twist to the familiar stories. While there is an overlying arc that flows throughout the season, another nice thing about the series is that you don't necessarily have to watch each one in order. Each episode is a creature-(or fairy tale)-of-the-week with complex characters and exceptional writing. Don't miss this series.
Available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 7, 2012, this five-disc set includes all 22 episodes.
BLU-RAY BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE:
* Grimm Guide: An interactive book that provides insight into the various creatures featured in the show.Read more ›

|What is Ultra-Violet Digital?||
It's basically a streaming website that allows you to watch the show on your PC or "any device" you can get apps and an internet connection on. It will work with the kindle fire as long as you are in range for wifi. IF, however, you have an apple device (ipod, iphone, ipad, etc) it is... Read More

|Is the Blu-ray now in a amaray case or still a digipak?||
Both are available. But I think the version that is widely available is the amaray case. When I initially ordered this from Amazon I got the digi case, which irritated me. I picked up the amaray version at Best Buy for $20.
