    I thought episode 2 was ok. I actually liked episode 1 a little more. I think the show will pick up a bit once we start getting deeper into the situation with the blonde girl and the police chief guy. As for comparing it to Once Upon a Time, I like the characters more in OUaT, especially Mr. Gold, but I like the premise of Grimm a lot more. I'll keep watching both shows and hope for the best.
    I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC.

    Yes, he is. He called back the security detail of Bland Boy's aunt, so that she could be killed.

    Yeah, I'm just really bad with names. I don't even remember the protagonist's name, haha.

    If the characters were interesting enough, rest assured I'd have memorized their names.
    Can't speak for the others, but the fact that I don't bother remembering them or looking them up should ring a bell.

    Main character is Bland Boy, black guy is The Partner, we also have The Werewolf and The Bad Police Officer, etc.

    The werewolf is the only character I've really enjoyed since I like the sarcastic grumpy personality and a rather older man look in a swamp of 'hot' teenage boy werewolves. Plus he's managed to be both the funniest character and the most badass.

    But even him, I don't remember his name either.

    I originally assumed my lack of care for the characters in this show was simply because I already loved the heroes from Supernatural but I just guess it's the show fault for not making me care since so many other people don't seem to care either.

This show gets the scary aspect of classic fairy tales down, but not the wonder, magic and crazy fantasy concepts. That's why I like Once Upon a Time a little better so far. That show embraces more of the whole package of the classic tales.
    I'm in the opposite direction. I want the show to be gritty and scary. That's what sold me on the show's premise. Besides if you want magic and wonder, then you're already getting that from OUaT. Let this series head down a darker path.

    You know I rolled my eyes the moment Monroe (aka the Big Bad Wolf) appeared. I felt his presence last week was needless slapstick and undermines the serious tone of the show. Well, after seeing him rip off someone's arm. I gotta say he went up a couple notches in my book. He can stick around.

    As for the German names, I like it. It give a sense of mythology to the series.

    Anyway, good ep.

    I think letting this show be more fairytale than grimdark would actually be a good thing because it'd allow the show to get some distance from Supernatural.

    Which is probably the last thing they want, really. The last couple of seasons, Supernatural has been much more about big themes and ideas and less about blood-n-guts action. If they're going after the same audience as Supernatural (and it appears they are) trying to give them something that (A) they're known to like and (B) their regular supplier may not be giving them enough of might actually be a good strategy.

    Well, this just connects to a pet peeve of mine in regards to classic folk and fairy tales. For ages, people played them up as the sort of whimsical, magical "Disney" material. Then, people started reading stuff like Grimm's Fairy Tales and everyone started obsessing over how dark and violent they are to the point that people started acting like they were all horror stories. The truth is that they're all that and more. They're magical and horrible and meaningful and funny and rustic and everything else. Those stories were the voice of the common people. I hate when people try to pigeon-hole them as being one way. Just my pet peeve as a folk tale fan and storyteller.

    Maybe that's it. I never got into Supernatural either. Not that I dislike horror-themed stuff. I'm just very picky about the ones I watch.

    I really liked the idea of Supernatural. I watched the first season and missed the finale and then got too far behind.

    I've enjoyed the first two episodes so far, myself. Just hope they can make themsleves stand out amidst all thr fairytale/supernatural shows on right now, or else it's doomed to not go very far.

    I dunno, the latest Supernatural season really feels like it's going back to its roots, but with a level of depth and complexity (and admittedly some rather wonky writing) that shows it has certainly grown as a series, even if the last few seasons have been kinda balls. So if this takes a Supernatural season one road and then Supernatural goes back to its roots as well this show will ultimately doom itself, because it'll have no chance.

    You only need to see the first three seasons, mate. After that Supernatural descends into pure garbage until the latest season.
