    This is becoming my favorite new show.

    It's about a cop who is the last of the "Grimm's", people who can see fairy tale monsters living in our world disguised as humans. His buddy is a 12-stepping Werewolf. There's a whole subplot about these monsters considering the implications of what this guy is doing.

    It's actually a fun show with likable characters...

    I enjoy it too, except that it's on the same time as Fringe and I often forget to catch up On Demand. It was also repeats and/or not on for a bit, which didn't help me to remember to catch up.

    I'm trying to get into Alcatraz but . . . something just isn't clicking. I like the idea and the stories but . . . might be chemistry lacking among the characters.

    I liked the first few shows but now it's becoming too "grim" for me.

    I like Once Upon A Time better.

    Grimm is better than Once Upon, in my opinion. The character of the reformed werewolf, and his willingness to take it against monsters who acts monstrous is what drive the unity of the show.

    The reformed warewolf is the best character of the show, and what does it say about the show when the sidekick is better than the hero? Still think Once Upon a Time is better.

    you bring up an interesting point here.

    Let's not forget, on the original Star Trek, Spock was vastly more interesting than Kirk. Kirk is the character the mainstream audience is supposed to identify with, and so is Burkhardt. Monroe is out there for the NERD factor. Kind of like Spock was.

    And this is a NERD show. How nerdy. They've had guest appearences by Nana Visator (Deep Space Nine) and Claudia Christian (Babylon 5).

    However, based on your recommendation, and since I'm caught up on all the Grimm episodes, I'm going to give Once UPon a Time a look-see.

    Okay, being an original trekkie, I'm gonna have to give you the point. Still like Once Upon a Time better, but only because Grimm is a little more, well, grim.
