I honestly did not expect "Grimm" to succeed. Not only was another modern-fairy-tale series being produced at the same time, but it was going to be a police procedural.

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.

Blu-ray review: When I saw the pilot episode of "Grimm" I thought it would be something of a knock off of Supernatural: The Complete First Season. While both shows have much in common, "Grimm" has managed to grow into its premise and find its own identity.

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.

For me personally I would give this all the stars in the world, because Grimm is my very favorite thing right now, but from an objective standpoint I can recognize that it's not perfect. But even with its occasionally sloppy plotting, awkward pacing, uneven special effects, and bad German, it still manages to be a wonderfully entertaining show. And not even in an overly campy or so-bad-it's-good kind of way. Grimm has a lot going for it--a fun, imaginative premise, great on-screen chemistry between the characters, a good dose of humor, and gorgeous settings and cinematography. For a show that's really kind of dark, it's also very colorful, both visually and figuratively.

Basic premise: Wesen ("vessen") are the talking animals and other creatures (trolls, ogres) of fairy-tale lore, living unseen in human society. The Brothers Grimm were early creature profilers, able to see their hidden faces when they lose control. Portland police detective Nick Burkhardt, as his Aunt Marie is dying of cancer, finds himself seeing monster faces on some of the people around him, and discovers his family's Grimm heritage. The show is an odd mix of fairy-tale fantasy and police procedural as Nick solves Wesen-related crimes and tries to hang onto some sort of normalcy with his partner and his girlfriend while getting drawn deeper and deeper into his new role.

Grimms are something of a mythological horror in the Wesen world--as Monroe tells Nick, "You're the monster under the bed....You're not real, you're a scary story we tell our kids: 'Be good or a Grimm will come cut your head off.
