Grimm: Season One
Grimm is a TV series about a cop in
Portland named Nick Burkhardt who learns he is an ancestor of the original
Grimms. After his aunt dies he inherits the power to see supernatural creatures.
These creatures look like average humans to everyone else which makes his life
as a detective interesting. All of his cases seem to involve some sort of
creature whether they're evil or harmless. Along the way he meets Monroe, a
Blutbad aka a big bad wolf, who becomes his confidant and adviser on all things
supernatural. The show is great if you love fairy tales or are looking for a new
crime drama. There is some humor but not to an excess. The special effects are
great - no two creatures look the same. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to
Upon a Time - another TV series putting a new spin on old fairy
tales.] -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
