Your Next Box Set: Grimm

On the lookout for a new boxset to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...

 

This week, we recommend Grimm, part fantasy, part police procedural, all awesome…

 

What is it?

The basic premise behind Grimm is this: Nick Buckhardt is a hard-working cop in Portland, who suddenly discovers that he is a descendant from a family of supernatural hunters. The supernatural hunters are now as Grimms (as in Brothers Grimm, author of most of the classic fairy tales we know and love) and they all have the ability to see monsters, vermin and canines who are part human, part animal with extraordinary abilities.

Now with his new abilities, his police work will never be the same again as each week he and partner Hank Griffin (who has none of these abilities) are called to solve a gruesome crime, a gruesome crime that takes its inspiration from one of the Grimms’ tales…

 

Who’s in it?

David Giuntoli stars as Nick, with Russell Hornsby playing Hank. Bitsie Tulloch, who appeared in The Artist, plays Nick’s girlfriend Juliet, while Silar Weir Mitchell plays his friend and confidante Monroe.

 

Why should I watch it?

It’s the perfect marriage. Crime nuts will enjoy it in the same way they would an episode of CSI or Law and Order, while fantasy fans will enjoy the lavish costumes and fantastical creatures. Fans of good TV will just be gripped by the great writing and inventive plots.

 

Describe the show in three words…

Gruesome, gory and gripping.

 

Seasons one and two of Grimm are out in hmv stores now.
