Grimm – The Other Side

This week’s “Previously On” clips seemed to indicate we’d get some movement on the Renard front – both with the effects of the potion and his relationship with his brother. Unfortunately, things still seem to be progressing very slowly. Now I’m just hoping we get some major developments for the midseason finale.

Full review here: Billie Doux: Grimm: The Other Side.

Grimm – The Bottle Imp

The story on last week’s Grimm focuses on a father and daughter who are badger-like Wesen, while Monroe manages the shop for Rosalee, and Renard and Juliette suffer some side effects from the “pure of heart” potion and the kiss.

Grimm – Over My Dead Body

This Monroe-centered episode introduces a new enemy, gets rid of a past frenemy, and sends Rosalee out of town on a bus – for the character to visit an ailing relative, and for the actress to go on maternity leave (Bree Turner and her husband recently welcomed a baby boy, Dean, to their family).

Community Season 4 Whitney Season 2 premiere postponed – TVLine

Returning seasons of Community and Whitney have been postponed – and NBC hasn’t said when they’re coming back. This could actually be good news for either or both shows, as some new NBC comedies (Guys With Kids and Animal Practice) aren’t doing so well. I recently speculated that there might be some comedy rearranging on the network, and I hope Community will get a chance to flourish on Wednesdays instead of being shuffled off to a Friday death slot or being forced to compete with the hugely popular CBS hit, The Big Bang Theory.

I expect we’ll get some news after Wednesday’s ratings come in for Guys With Kids and Animal Practice. In the meantime, Grimm repeats will continue to air on Fridays at 8.

‘Revolution’ Gets Full-Season — ‘Go On’ and ‘New Normal’ Picked By NBC – TVLine

NBC has given three of its freshman shows a full season pick-up (which usually involves expanding their initial 13-episode order to a full 22): Revolution, Go On, and The New Normal. Revolution and Go On are the network’s highest-rated scripted shows so far this season (out of all their scripted shows, not just new ones), while The New Normal has ridden Go On’s coattails for ratings on par with The Office’s current (and final) season.

I’ve sampled all three shows, but Go On is the only one I’m still watching (Revolution’s pilot was interesting enough for me to give the show another chance by watching the second episode, but The New Normal’s pilot was so awful I barely finished it).

The news doesn’t bode well for NBC’s other new comedies, Animal Practice and Guys With Kids – I’m watching both still, but I wouldn’t really mind if either are canceled. NBC has 3 comedies officially on tap for midseason – Save Me, 1600 Penn, and Next Caller, plus the likely Dwight-from-The-Office spinoff The Farm. With 30 Rock, Up All Night, and Community all only having 13-episode renewals, only one out of the 5 (these three, plus Animal Practice and Guys with Kids) will likely get nine more episodes. I’m REALLY hoping that show is Community. I’m also hoping Community will switch places and get one of the Wednesday slots before it comes back. (If so, I think it should be paired with fellow single-camera comedy Animal Practice, while both multi-camera shows – Guys With Kids and Whitney – air on Friday.)

As far as dramas go, with not really liking Revolution, the only current NBC drama I watch is Grimm. For midseason, I’m still not sure if I’ll return to Smash, and the new dramas set to debut then don’t really interest me.

October Giveaway – Grimm!

A spooky month deserves a spooky show giveaway, right? And so, for the month of October, TV Breakroom is giving away season one of Grimm! If you already own the first season of this awesome show (or if you live outside the US), you can choose a $15 Amazon gift card instead. I’m also reviewing Grimm on the site Billie Doux, so be sure to check out my reviews (be forewarned – since they are reviews, there are plenty of spoilers)!

Portland detective Nick Burkhardt starts seeing ordinary people morph into legendary and animal-like creatures, and learns from his dying aunt that he is the last in a long line of Grimms. Like the fairytale-writing pair of brothers, Grimms both catalog and defend the world against these supernatural creatures called Wesen. While Wesen appear human, a Grimm can see who they truly are when they lose control.

Nick teams up with Monroe, a reformed Blutbad (a wolf-like Wesen), who helps him understand this new world and solve Wesen-related crimes. Nick’s girlfriend, Juliette, and partner on the force, Hank, are both ignorant of Nick’s new abilities. Captain Renard, Nick’s boss, knows what Nick is, but chooses to keep that knowledge, and his own true nature, a secret. Part crime show, part supernatural drama, Grimm mixes in humor and mythology while turning fairy tales on their heads.

I’m using Rafflecopter for this giveaway, so please let me know if you have any troubles with it! I tried to make it as easy to understand as I could. Some ways enter will require doing something and then coming back to fill in the needed info, others you can do up to once a day! If you have other ideas of activities that you believe should earn entries, let me know and I may add them!

Grimm – The Good Shepherd

Grimm returns with a more widely-known tale – the story of the wolf in sheep’s clothing. A Blutbad is pastor to a flock of Seelengut (sheep-like Wesen), and Monroe goes undercover to solve a murder.

An embezzling case is brought to Nick and Hank (why was it brought to them in the first place – aren’t they homicide detectives?), but when the suspected embezzler turns up dead, it becomes a murder investigation. In one of Grimm’s more gruesome deaths (though they didn’t show much), the victim was throw alive into a wood chipper, and was only identified by his metal hip replacement.

‘Grimm’ Promotes Claire Coffee to Series Regular — Season 2 – TVLine

Wondering if we’ve seen the last of Adalind? Fear not (or maybe you should fear), since her portrayer, Claire Coffee, has been promoted to a series regular on Grimm, we’ll be seeing a lot more of her on the show.

Spoilers for the first few season 2 episodes below!

Adalind already got revenge on Nick for destroying her Hexenbiest side, but with the death of her mother (killed by Nick’s mom, but she probably doesn’t know that), she’ll have more reason to come after Nick and his friends. But she also hates Renard, so who knows where her loyalties will eventually lie? I could see her becoming the Grimm version of Spike with a chip in his head or Anya without her powers to the little Scooby gang that has formed on the show. But with Renard’s true nature revealed, it would also be natural for a half-Hexenbiest and a former Hexenbiest to team up. Plus, with her knowledge of potions and such, she’s a natural evil counterpart to Rosalee.

Grimm – Quill

Grimm kicked it up a notch with this episode – it’s right up there with many of the best episodes of the show, while (hopefully) establishing a status quo for what the rest of the season will be like. And yes, it looks like there’s a Scooby Gang forming.

Grimm – Bad Moon Rising

Grimm (and Nick) finally let Hank in on the secret in this episode – Wesen exist. Why Hank can see them is still a mystery, but with Monroe spending more time with Rosalee, it’s nice that Nick has someone else who understands (at least a bit) about what’s going on.

NBC Yanks ‘Saving Hope’ Off Its Schedule, Postpones Next Grimm

Canadian medical drama Saving Hope will have its final two episodes of the season airing only online in the US (I wonder, how much money do they save rights-wise by not airing an episode on TV? NBC seems to do that a lot). The Canadian channel CTV will, however, air those episodes and has renewed the show for a second season.

Also in NBC schedule changes, the September 10th episode of Grimm has been postponed to September 28, delaying the show’s return to Friday nights to a week later than planned (perhaps NBC is concerned about having enough original episodes of the show for the season, considering Grimm’s early start?). Instead, a preview premiere of The New Normal will air in the plum 10pm spot following The Voice premiere, as well as another preview showing of the Go On pilot. Given that The New Normal starts out heartwarming but quickly becomes humorless and agenda-driven, I’m not sure it will be helped by this additional preview.

Ben and Kate Casts Geoff Stults in Season 1 – TVLine

The passing of Michael Clarke Duncan put to rest my last hopes for The Finder somehow making it back on the air (the show wouldn’t be the same without Leo!), but I’m glad to see star Geoff Stults returning to TV. Not only will he play a reoccurring role on Ben and Kate, he’s developing his own multi-camera comedy.

With Mercedes Masöhn cast in ABC’s 666 Park Avenue, the other remaining cast member from The Finder who needs a show is Maddie Hasson, who played Willa. She did recently appear on a episode of Grimm, as a teenage coyotl who’s also the daughter of one of Hank’s good friends.

Sasha Roiz, Grimm’s Captain Renard, talks about Monday’s episode “The Kiss” and the jaw-dropping reveal about his character. He confirms exactly what he is (I thought it was pretty clear from the episode, but I’ve seen comments from people who had other theories) and hints at future episodes.
