Premiering tonight at 9pm on NBC is a new drama series called Grimm. For those that aren’t familiar with the premise, it is loosely based on the Grimm fairytales. If you are still scratching your head or would like to gather some more information for reference, check out the Grimm’s Fairytales wiki page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimms’_Fairy_Tales
Last night I had a chance to watch the pilot episode of the show and here are some thoughts:
Detective Nick Burkhardt is a homicide detective in Portland. When the pilot episode opens he is trying to track down a missing girl who was described as wearing a red sweatshirt. This piece of the description sets off flags since earlier a young woman was reported missing after jogging on a trail in a wooded area also wearing a red sweatshirt. If you are already connecting the description to a familiar childhood story called Little Red Riding Hood then you have an idea of what you are in for in NBC’s new “horror”-drama Grimm.

If you follow on twitter, you know I might have had a possible mishap with the Red State review I wrote up. Looks like my login token on ARR expired some time while I was writing it (between bouts of also doing other stuff) and when I went to submit it, it gave me the “you must login first screen” which in order to do that, you have to click a link to login, and once you login it doesn’t bring back up what you were previously doing like some websites do. So, hey….lesson learned on that one eh? I’ll find out later today probably if the review still ended up in the review que or not. If so I’ll post the usual excerpt and link. If not, I will probably just post some my abbreviated thoughts on the movie on here later tonight.
With The Walking Dead season 2 getting underway a few hours ago….or depending on when you are reading this, last night, it is safe to say that the Horror-TV season is in full effect and will be pretty jam packed with shows and series for the remainder of 2011. Despite all the shows currently airing, we still have NBC’s Grimm, Bag of Bones, as well as Chiller’s original movie, Remains, among many more that I have probably failed to mention.
That said, I want to know what you, the visitors of the site and listeners of the podcast think about all the returning series and new shows. It doesn’t matter if you enjoy ’em, hate ’em, want to pick certain elements apart regarding them. I am all for your feedback no matter what your opinions are, and I’d love to feature all of your thoughts in an upcoming episode of the podcast.
You can do something as simple as leave a reply on this topic below, email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can be even more bold and record your comments in audio form and send them to the same email and I will play them during the show.
With the audience of the podcast growing slowly but surely, I am always interested to get the pulse of the audience as to what they are watching and what they want to discuss. So speak up and be a part of an upcoming episode of the podcast!

Not sure if this totally slipped by me on the newswires, or it just hasn’t got much out there yet. From NBC, by way of executive producers David Greenwalt Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Jim Kouf Angel, National Treasure comes a new series based loosely on some of the monsters from The Brothers Grimm novels. Without any further explanation take a look at pretty extensive first trailer for the new series below, which will be followed by a snyopsis found right on the trailer’s youtube page:
“Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things… things he couldn’t quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he’s not like everyone else, he’s a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as “Grimms” who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world.”
