Cops and Monsters

Characters from fairy tales fascinate me. That’s why I’m enjoying two new TV series this year – ABC’s Once Upon a Time and NBC’s Grimm. It was such a treat to interview Russell Hornsby, who plays one of the detectives in the latter show, during our Movie Addict Headquarters podcast yesterday. Russell even gave listeners a hint at what would be coming up in tonight’s episode, which is titled “Plumed Serpent.”

One reviewer calls Grimm a “police procedural with monsters.” And what monsters they are! They just happen to be evil storybook creatures who look perfectly normal except to Grimms, individuals who can see them for the monsters they are. Russell’s partner is one of these gifted people – and it’s his mission to make sure they do as little evil as possible. But Russell’s character doesn’t know his partner is a Grimm. “I hope he finds out in the near future,” Russell said. Me too!

So far, I’ve seen thirteen episodes of Grimm, and each one is better than the last. The special effects involving changes of normal people into monsters are incredible! Plus each story comes across as creative and intriguing. Be sure to check your local TV schedule for Friday night to find out the time this fantastical mystery/crime drama airs in your area.
