Another daring move from Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt (both writers on Angel, a series Greenwalt co-created). Grim is a very different TV series compared to the now hit series on fairy tales that is Once Upon a Time.

The show delivers the darker side of the stories we all loved and knew. It brings the story of this show unto a more edgy kind of side away from its usual soft lines of fantasy we all loved.

Grimm television series focuses on homicide detective Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli).

When he decided to move to Portland with his fiancee Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and his tough as nails, but lovable partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby), things started to change when his aunt rolls into town.

He began seeing things he could not explai in otherwise normal people. He sees faces morph into demon-like features. Most people would freak right out, but not Nick. He shakes it off and goes about his day.

Nick goes to his relative in the hospital who tells him that he has the Grimm, a supernatural power that is able to see the creatures in real life. With his partner Lt. Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby) the pair track down a killer in a "Little Red Riding Hood" tale.

The story of the tales of the Brothers Grimm comes to life in a modern day set up and can only restore the town to what it was before. The producers of the show knows exactly what they want to portray in this set up and how each episode does not have a natural ending unlike what we see on Once Upon a Time series. The show has a lot of storytelling to do and there is a long stretch of road for the writers to take.
