To me "Midinight Texas" is an exciting show. Supper spooky and supernatural which is something I love. Thanks characters in the show are very unique there stories there supernatural abilities are amazing . When you go and you watch a supernatural show, or a super hero show or anything with super powers or mystical abilities people watch that stuff to escape reality, or to kind of sorta relate to the characters to make themselves feel better . This is not a bad thing at all because some people like the idea of feeling different and this is the type of energy "Midinght Texas" gives off. I mean when you are watching a show you want to be able to relate to it and you in a way want to really connect yourself to that or one of the characters and this is what "Midnight Texas" gives off, an escape feeling.

The show feels "Flat" to me. No the spame spark Grimm had at first (also by NBC)

This show feels "flat" to me, and I'm not saying this after reading the books (since I didn't). Not the same spark Grimm had on first couple of seasons. Personally, I was hoping NBC will replace the ended Grimm with Forever (getting rights, or teaming up with Warner Bros).
