This is my one quiet hope for the network system. It's got lameduckCHUCK as a lead in and it's already relegated to the FridayNightDeathSlot. Check it out...maybe word of mouth will carry this. Prolly not though. Of all the FABLES ripoffs this is the one the seems to cling closer to the conceit. It's probably smart AND fun, which means it is doomed.
With the amount of content available on television today, shows are fighting for ways to stand out from the pack. While my DVR is dedicated to only a handful of titles, NBC, with their outstanding Thursday night comedy lineup, leads all basic broadcasting channels. Now it looks as if I’ll have to add another NBC series to the list as Grimm could easily turn into one of my new favorite shows.
The network currently has a brilliant marketing strategy that allows you to watch the series premiere in its commercial-free entirety before it airs nationally on Friday, October 28that 9pm. All you have to do is follow their Twitter account, @NBCGrimm, and check your email (or spam) for a direct message with a code. But if you need some more incentive to check it out, hit the jump for my review of the Grimm series premiere.
