Live in Chicago?
Want to see an early premiere of NBC’s GRIMM TV series Tuesday night with Ambush Bug? Click here to find out how.
Ambush Bug here. From the writers behind BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL comes NBC’s new supernatural series GRIMM. The show premieres on Friday, October 28th at 8pm on NBC, but if you’re the impatient type, I’m giving you a chance to see it a few days early.
I’ll be hosting an event featuring the first episode of GRIMM on Tuesday, October 25th (that’s tomorrow), 7:30pm at the Showplace Icon, 150 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago.
In order to see the GRIMM premiere, go to www.GoFoBo.com/RSVP and enter in the code AICNPDGX to download 2 tickets to the screening. It’s that simple. But show up early to guarantee a seat. Any late-comers, don’t get all huffy if the theater’s filled. You’ve been warned.
I’ll be seeing you all tomorrow night at the premiere of GRIMM. I’ve been watching the promos and it looks like something fans of AICN HORROR wouldn’t want to miss.

Should've stuck with the private-eye, noirish angle.

Angel couldn't stay a private eye forever. Season 5 had some execution problems, but it was still a brilliant concept, making the ultimate outsider the ultimate insider. Actually, it's season 4 that was oddly bloated and made all kinds of mistakes around Cordelia and Connor. 5 got it back to form.

Was the best season of the series. If anything feels off in the season, it's a result of them trying to tie up the aforementioned bloated plot strands from Season 4. Very excited for Grimm. Hope it lives up.

It's called Supernatural. And it's fucking awesome.

and 5 was the magnus opus. I miss that show, but I love how it ended.

It WAS awesome. Not so much anymore. Still better than a lot of shit out there, but definitely past its prime. This however, does indeed look like a lousy knockoff. It won't last.

Did the casting people do their best to cast someone that looks just like brandon routh. cause if so then they succeeded.

big heaping plate of Meh. to say that Buffy and Angel creator peeps were involved is not a total lie - just David Greenwalt really - who is no Joss Whedon that's for sure.

It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. The comparison someone made to Supernatural was fair. The question is, will this show *find its legs* in time? It certainly doesn't have the pure guts and dark humor of Supernatural, but it hints at wanting to go in that direction. I enjoyed it, but it just wasn't that memorable. I'll tune in for a while and see how it goes, but unless it's some exec's favorite show... I think its chances are slim for sticking around long enough to develop into something better. It's not a reality show, it's not fantastic, and it seems to feature almost no attractive , brooding *teens* portrayed by attractive 20-somethings. Doomed? Best part of the show? Silas Mitchell. His character stood out and was very entertaining. He has some great dialogue. If they keep him around and bring in more characters/character actors with his level of talent and energy, they could have a winner. Second best part of the show? The trailer filled with weapons and a reference library that reminded me of a mobile Bobby's house (Supernatural). Nice touch. If they handle the main character's acceptance of his new role in life the right way (as in don't make it take a whole season) it could turn out to be fun. But I get the feeling they will drag on the reluctant hunter thing for too long. It was better than that Once Upon a Time show or whatever it's called.

The pilot was BAD. Oh so horribly bad. Made "Once Upon a Time" look like it was directed by Sergio Leone.
At least that show has an interesting cast. "Grimm" is made up of unattractive, boring actors. And this is coming from someone who has really enjoyed every pilot on a David Greenwalt show, especially "Profit" and "Miracles".

i can see why aicn never has talkbacks for that crappy show. the one i saw was the most recent w/charisma carpenter and james marsters guest starring. love the guest stars - horrible writing though. Buffy was 10x better.

As I mentioned above, the show isn't as good as it used to be. It was supposed to end with its fifth season but CW's drug it out two past. I wouldn't condemn it though just based on one ep.....even if it doesn't live up to Whedonite standards.
Oct. 25, 2011, 1:54 p.m. CST
...therefore it must an awful show.

shermdawg, maybe they will revisit it, but my problem with the last episode of Supernatural ** spoilers**
Sam & Dean let them go despite all the deaths brought about by their petty jealousies. Just two episodes earlier Dean killed poor Jewel Staite because he thought she would kill again, regardless of her (and Sam's) insistence that she wouldn't. Yet he seems to have no problem with letting the witches go despite them killing each other's human friends for fun and, seemingly, with absolutely no remorse.

Motives aren't very consistent this season....but then again, they probably filed the two away with the other all-powerful characters they let go because they knew they'd get their asses handed to them. And yeah they totally left the door open for a return, but I wish they were given better.
