EPISODE 1×01 – “Pilot”
A university student is savagely attacked while jogging, and a
mysterious woman visits her nephew to tell him a family secret in the
opener of the dramatic series following a detective who tracks
Well, I thought that was fun! Far more engaging than some of the other new shows I’ve tried, and far less precious than “Once Upon a Time” (though I still enjoyed that one from a fairy-tale-loving perspective). I liked the humor here, especially with the reformed “Blutbad” who’s on a healthy regimen (pilates, ha!). Will definitely keep watching.
Agreed. I wasn’t expecting much out of this but what I got was really fun. It doesn’t try to take itself TOO seriously but still has a darker tone. If nothing else the show is visually stunning.
Yes, thanks for reminding me about the visuals. I meant to comment on that, as well. The forest scenes, especially, were gorgeous. Such vivid greens. I loved that. I do love shows that have a dark tone with a splash of humor, so this is right up my alley. It prompted me to order a copy of “The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales,” too.
I didn’t think it was that good. Trailers certainly didn’t look good either so I wasn’t expecting much. I don’t think the lead guy is good enough to carry a whole show by himself. Don’t see how long this can last, how many fairy tales are there? Or are we getting another wolf in season 3?
I need a second episode to decide.
The production was very well done, a lot of elements were pretty great, but if the story is not there, then bright colors won’t be enough for me to tune back in.
EPISODE 1×02 – “Bears will be Bears”
