I will continue to watch for a couple more seasons, but I hope the side plots are wrapped up by the time the sponsors decide to quit supporting show.
Perfect casting...David Giuntoli is from St. Louis...another of our "Hometown Boys" who made good ! PLUS, it was a stroke of genius adding "Trubel" in Season 3 ! If you've not seen her yet, I won't spoil it for you, but she's a real "balance" to David Giuntoli's character. Only cast member I feel is weak is "Wu"...w-a-y too flipant and sarcastic most of the time.
If you've watched Season's 1 & 2, you're gonna need to see Season 3...especially to find out what happens to Nick, AND, Juliette ! AND, if you need more Info...that's really simple: just read my Review of Season 2 !
One of the things I enjoy most about Grimm is the cast, and the humor. Overall, Grimm deals with dark themes, but there's lots of comedic relief. The main character Nick develops close friendships with several strange and likable characters, who have become the protagonists in the series.
If you order Season 1 or Season 5 on Blu-ray, be sure to check if you're getting the standard plastic Blu-ray cases (which I prefer), or the crummy cardboard cases. The cardboard cases have more artwork, but are a hassle when removing/inserting the disks.
In this season, our Grimm doesn't use his cool toys as much as previous seasons. He seems to shy away from being the tough Grimm he always was after he accidentally murders a mortal while in a zombie state. In fact, Nick looks tougher on the cover of Grimm's third season DVD set than he acted in the show.
Also, too many times, characters would say something like, "No, it can't be. That's just legend." before revealing a new Wesen.
There was definitely a pattern here - and it got a little tiring.
On a fun note, we get to see Rosalee and Monroe get engaged, deal with the fallout of marrying a different Wesen race and freak out about wedding plans. With a Grimm as a best man, you know something will go awry.
Conniving Adalind has a baby, starts to become something less selfish - until she thinks her baby is lost to the royals. Then, she gets evil again. It doesn't take a genius to figure out how her actions will lead to the season finale.
I think that was what bothered me the most. It was so easy to see where Grimm was headed. There were no real surprises - except maybe the young Grimm Nick takes on as an apprentice. That actress is awesome and I look forward to seeing her more. Still, I expect more from a great show like this.
Hopefully the pace picks up and Grimm gets back on track.

Skilfully the series keep true to its intriguing original premise. The creatures described by the Grimm brothers actually existed and still do - masquerading in human form. By now many are harmless enough, but others are as villainous as ever they were. Grimms' descendants live to root out the evil ones in our midst.
Creators and cast are all on fine form. Portland cop Nick continues to try to keep secret he is a Grimm. (Enemies are on all sides, especially in Austria where powerful enemies want him dead.) Monroe and Rosalee remain fun, their Romeo and Juliet-type relationship as yet to be discovered by parents. (Prepare for fireworks!) Never to be trusted, Adalind briefly evokes sympathy but all too soon is evil again. There are two important new arrivals: a Royal baby with awesome powers; Teresa, a young unsuspecting Grimm who until now had assumed she was mad.
Special effects abound, especially when morphing reveals characters' inner-selves. Features include the cast reflecting on the new season's developments. There are also two bonus mini-stories. (By the way, an in-joke is revealed: any new address or hotel room number coincides with the episode it is in - ie 321, etc. The creators are amazed so many fans cottoned on.)
Addicts will emerge satisfied and anxious for more, this a series going from strength to strength.
The package contains all twenty two forty minute long episodes of the season, spread across six discs. There are extras on the sixth disc.
The amount of backstory and continuity the show has built up by this point means this isn't a good jumping on point. New viewers should start with season one.
The dvd has the following language and subtitle options:
Languages: English, French, Spanish.
Subtitles: English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish.
The season picks up from where the previous one ended, with Portland under zombie attack and Nick having been kidnapped. Naturally, this is resolved. But Nick's world, and that of those all around him, continues to evolve and change. Monroe and Rosalee grow close. Adalind has plans. The royals and the resistance have plans.
And a new arrival in the city means Nick's world is about to get bigger...
There comes a point when all involved in a TV show really know what they're doing, and hit the top of their game instinctively every time. Grimm got there somewhere in season two, so continues on a steady upward trajectory here. Now that Juliette knows the truth, she becomes a stronger character and the writers have a better idea how to fit her in.
The Wesen of the week crime dramas that usually form the main episode plots continue here. They are a strength of the show - to have something that is done in one - but also can be a slight weakness at times in that they get a bit repetitive. Added to which, now that Nick has so many acquaintances who are in on things, the show does occasionally have trouble giving everyone a fair share of the action. Thus this season does slightly hit a holding pattern in the middle. When there can be episodes where characters will just be in one scene helping Nick go through the books.
And yet, the writers always do know what they are doing in regards to the bigger plotlines and story arcs of the show. Which are always proceeding, in the background at times, at just the right pace. And they do move forward regularly enough. The season does really go up a gear in a final quarter which brings in a superb new character. Goes almost all story arc for the episodes. And ends with a big cliffhanger that promises bigger changes to come.
A very solid season of a very good show, that provides consistently good escapist viewing.
The sixth disc has the following extras:
Deleted scenes: thirty five minutes worth. They can only be watched all in a row. Some have unfinished visual effects. Nearly all are character moments that don't advance the plot - which always get cut if you need to cut running time - so there are some good ones and they're all worth a watch.
Gag reel. Nine minutes of outtakes. Despite having a little bit of the usually very unfunny and indulgent images of people on set just being silly, there are some good ones in here. It's worth a watch.
Something Wesen this way comes: inside season three. A ten minute overview of the season and it's major events. A standard featurette of it's kind, but good viewing. With a couple of interesting facts about some production in jokes.
Double take: fighting a Hundjager. A three minute long look at the fight scenes and how they're arranged. Short but interesting viewing.
Meltdown; Digital series.
Love is in the air: Elegant Endeavours: Digital series.
These two are short mini episodes, both running six to seven minutes [approx] originally broadcast online in minute long episodes. Which is why you get quick credits in the middle of them on occasion. Both are presented here edited together into complete short stories. Both are fun little stories that highlight supporting cast members. And both are well worth a watch.
Don't get me wrong this is not a Star trek or a Farscape for the originality of it
it takes an old idea a newish sort of Ideas and mushes them up sort of creates something a bit of to one side so to speak more sleepy Hollow or the Buffy verse
But it is once again the supporting cast who steal it they are good
