I thought I saw 4 episodes in the list last night - but I didn't see whether they were HD or not. I wouldn't be surprised if they were SD, though. It seems some networks don't really give a rats backside about putting any effort into VOD - especially when they have a vested interest in that monthly fee for Hulu Plus.

I found the surround mix of the last two episodes to be particularly good. My only fear is nbc but i hope for the best.

The cape got all the promotion but grimm has the goods.

FIOS has all six episodes in VOD HD. I just checked nbc.com and it looks like they have episodes 3-6 available. So you should be able to catch up via multiple sources.

If you have Comcast, all six episodes are currently on VOD in HD, but the pilot is scheduled to be removed on Dec. 16th.

Excellent episode. Was not expecting many parts of it and it had a great ending. The shooting really shocked me.

I was about to give up on the show- not bad, but I watch too much TV and lots of new stuff coming in January- but Friday's show was pretty gripping. So I'm gonna hang in there.

Really liked the dj wretched cat episode.
That chewed up body was pretty nasty for network TV. I mean that in a good way.

The piggy episode was good also.

Check out Wiki, they list 210 stories (many with links to the story description) from the 7th edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, plus another couple dozen from prior editions. That should be enough for 10 years, even at one story per episode.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimm%27s_Fairy_Tales

I enjoyed this episode. Does anyone know when the next new episode is scheduled?

Looks like January 3rd "Of Mouse and Man".

Not really the police would follow up to investigate their residence and since we are what iffing What if the guy's girlfriend calls in a missing person report? The detectives have the revenge connection by the fact the now dead brothers were looking for someone.

Just finished watching this week's episode and it was fun. When ever BlutBad is in the story, everything picks up.

Anyone else think that if the Asian cop ever gets transferred, none of the crimes would be solved? His only purpose is to come into the room announcing some key piece of evidence.

The plot thickens with the refrigerator repair man and his goons. That could be interesting.

Agreed! This looks to be an interesting (and fun) development.

After the winter hiatus, there has been 2 more episodes (as of tonite).
I have enjoyed both, but the producers really are missing the boat.
What is really needed is for the writers to accentuate the supernatural element of the show.

We have PLENTY of TV Soap floating around....
And we don't need more.

If NBC was smart, they would try to bring some of the vibe of the CW's Supernatural series to Grimm.
Don't play it safe, NBC!!!....Do something daring (for a change).

If NBC was smart

How many times has that phrase been uttered in the past ten years?

I came to the show because they shoot it in my part-time hometown of Portland, but I'm staying with it (so far) because they've tried to adopt a unique vibe and attitude.

That said, I refuse to get too invested in the program because if I had a nickle for every NBC series that showed great promise in creative storytelling that got lobotomized by network meddling I'd be very wealthy.

In the meantime I'll enjoy how much they've managed to turn a city I love into one of the characters of the show, and take it for what it is... a nice, fun effort and a well executed diversion on Friday nights.

Yes, they have...like Portlandia.

Although they are very different from one another, it is somewhat amazing we have 2 series about Portland going on at the same time.

The couple of drops of rain that they had on last night's show made me think that for a show set in Portland they sure don't get much rain.

Maybe they could switch to using rain to set the mood instead of the flashlight fetish they indulge in in every other scene.

This show really needs some direction.

It seems like the police chief being a bad guy subplot has been completely dropped.

And IMHO, last night's episode was very weakly plotted.

Personally, I think they'd be better off if they switched from trying to spin fairy tales to taking famous murderers/serial killers such as The Hillside Strangler, Dahlmer and The Mansion Family and putting a supernatural spin on them. Was last night's episode even based on a fairy tale? Because I can't think of one that fits last night's show.
