    What is happening with Grimm? They announced last week that there were only two episodes left? I know they started early, but they haven’t had a full season of episodes yet. Please do not cancel Grimm, it’s the best!

  2. Lori says

    What is going on with Grimm? I heard last week they said there was only 2 episodes left, why? I know it started early, but they still haven’t had a full season yet. Are they gonna bring it back after Christmas maybe? Please DON’T cancel it!

    • says

      They ordered 22 episodes this season and the 11/16 installment will be the 12th. They must have been talking about having just two new episodes left for this year. They’ll air some repeats and then it will be back in mid-January I believe.

    I love Grimm this season, and I think it’s on a strong streak right now. It’s better than I remember of last year’s episodes when I first started watching. I depend on my Hopper DVR on a nightly basis since I work at that time. I didn’t have a way to watch my favorite primetime shows until the upgrade. I didn’t know I could get my all my primetime recorded until my coworker at DISH told me about the PrimeTime Anytime feature. My Hopper will record all four major networks every night on one TV, which leaves all my other TV’s available to watch. I’m able to bring peace to the house now that the wife and kids can watch TV while my shows record. I don’t have to worry about timer conflicts or priority of my shows with this sweet feature.

    Love Grimm, never miss it, I dvr in case I’m not going to be able to watch it. I love these unique shows beets the hell out of reality tv.

    “Grimm” is one of the best public relations and advertising mediums that the State of Oregon ever found by accident. If you hadn’t heard or read some of the comments on television or in the travel colums of newspapers or magazines or bloggers about that quirky place out in the Northwest which isn’t quite Seattle but certainly is zanny, a few episodes of “Grimm” might want to make you check out the place. What you see of the city in each episode is pretty much you get in real life…well maybe not all those trick or treat characters for whom everyday is Halloween.
    “Grimm”–I am surprised that the creators have been able to keep up the quality in Season II; I find the characters appealing, especially Monroe and his on again, off again apothocary ladyfriend. All the main characters with continuing roles–who wouldn’t want to know them or at least nod in recognition when you see one of them ordering a double tall latte with nonfat?

    Grimm is thoroughly enjoyed in our house but we record it and watch it later. We had Five shows we recorded and watched: Grimm. The Finder, Person of Interest, Sherlock and Once Upon a Time. All deserve additional seasons. They are great shows. Of course Fox did not renew the Finder so now there are only three shows we watch.

    For this season, we tried Vegas and Elementary but eh! Stopped recording after watching the first two of each.

  7. Bruiser says

    Keep this show on it keeps you guessing as to what’s going to happen and makes you want to know more about the creatures who surround you. Makes me want to move to Oregon!

    I love Grimm! I never miss a show. I also have my best friend, mom, and dad hooked on it now. I would hate to see it canceled.

  9. says

    When this show began, I was “meh” about it, but it improved over the course of the season, kept my interest with the finale, and had a great premier last night. I hope they keep it up!

      I agree with your assessment. I stuck it out because of the flashes of originality and the show really picked up over season one. I thought the first episode of Season 2 really knocked it out of the park. I am so glad they launched early. It will give new viewers a chance to sample it before the field becomes crowded with the new and returning series. I hope it continues to improve and climb in the ratings.
