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.
