Grimm [Bookish TV]

So, my Hulu queue was suddenly studded with a Pilot of Grimm this weekend.  I don't remember favoriting it, I don't remember ever even hearing about it, but I guess I could just be getting old.

I watched it, even though I have three *blush* yes, three, episodes of Castle waiting in my queue.  But guess what?  I was not disappointed.  Nope, I was scared, intrigued, and hooked from exactly the 1:00 mark where I screamed... yes, screamed.  Lame, I know.  TV on your laptop shouldn't make you scream.

Each episode is supposed to revolve around one of the stories from Grimm's Fairytales.  Let's face it.  There're enough of 'em to sustain an entire series for sure.  The first focused on Blutbaden and Little Red Riding Hood.  But like all great television shows (and yes, I consider Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a product of this same writers, great tv) it has a twist on it's original take.  A modern application that had me never ever ever wanting to hear the Eurythmics version of Sweet Dreams ever again.

Catch up on Hulu or NBC.com.  Then watch this Friday at 9/8C on NBC. It's spooky and disturbing and totally worth your time away from that book.  Peace out, friends... and Happy Halloween!
