Watch Grimm

NBC's "Grimm" is an entertaining and fantastical ride through a world of strange and usually dangerous creatures most of us can't see. The exception is anyone who is part of the Grimm family tree. The show's premise is that Portland police detective Nick Burkhart (David Giuntoli) is a Grimm and can see the creatures for what they really are. In the pilot episode Nick begins to see things he can't explain. He learns from his dying aunt that he is special. He also discovers that there is a big price to pay for having his talent. There are those who want him dead over what he can see.

Set in beautiful Portland, Oregon, "Grimm" uses the city and region as part of the cast instead of just a set. Portland locations favored by locals are highlighted, and viewers get to see what sets Portland apart.

As Nick and his partner detective Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby) solve gruesome crimes, Nick is working with the advantage of knowing when creatures others can't see are responsible. What he doesn't know is what their agendas are. Discovering the history behind different beasts of the nightmare realm is the driving force of the plot.

The history and characteristics of all the supernatural beings Nick comes across have been carefully recorded by his ancestors. He spends hours pouring over old books and illustrations trying to figure out the world around him. Imagine if what you thought of as myth you suddenly discovered was true.

Nick's significant other is Juliette Silverton (Bitsie Tulloch), and we see the strains his emerging self puts on their relationship. His police captain is Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz), and is part of the creature world too. Nick doesn't know that, putting him at a disadvantage. The show explores how different factions of supernatural beings are locked in a worldwide power struggle with each other and the Grimms.

He has a strong ally in Eddie Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a reformed Blutbad, which is similar to a werewolf. Monroe is conflicted with his inner self but struggling to live as a human. He becomes a reluctant assistant and we see a friendship develop.

Once the jump is made on the premise of the supernatural beings existing, the writing sticks to science and logic. It's a nice intermingling of the fantastic with reality. "Grimm" is an intriguing and entertaining adventure.
