Grimm is a fantastic show it is complex and the violence is shooting guns with very obvious fake blood the cgi on the wesen is meh but the main gore is the crime scene you actually see the bodies sexually it is you have to know to understand it nick and Monroe are great role models and adalind is a bit kinky she tricks nick into sleeping with her around season 3

GRIMM Rocks!

I was turned onto the show by a friends and started in the third episode so had no idea what was happening. The show showed up on Crave TV so when it ended, I got caught up on the episodes i missed. I couldn't wait for Fridays where i could watch the show before going to work. I was so upset when it got cancelled and then takeb off of Nerflix and Crave so I can't even watch it anymore. I am hoping the spin off is every bit as good and am enoying watching "Nick" on his new show "A Million Litttle Tings" being shot in my hometown of Vancouver.
