The two-week dearth of programming gave me a chance to catch up with this, and I love it. Among other things, I'm glad that they brought all the main players into the fold quickly; I can't stand it when half of the characters wastes time hiding what's really going on from the other half (Grimm?) in every episode, so bringing Frank into the know quickly was a good move. I also appreciate that the characters actually trust each other, which seems particularly rare in shows such as these. Whenever characters get threatened by the enemy, the typical response is for them to hide it to create a faux sense of danger, but instead Frank tells everyone about the demon so they can protect Washington's Bible, and Crane tells Mills about Moloch's prophecy. Well done on both counts. Also, it has a theme song. This makes me happy.
They even dropped the procedural police elements within the first dozen episodes, which puts filler-fests like Fringe
to shame. Combined with John Noble and Lyndie Greenwood joining the main cast next season, I can't wait. It may be more silly than scary, but it's too much fun to miss it either way.
If anyone does decide to get the DVD/Blu-ray of season 1, check the first two episodes to see if they retconned the "Revelations" gaffe in the dialogue. I noticed from the third episode that they dubbed Abbie's line to correct her into saying "Revelation" (Contgratulations! You beat Zero Hour
!) in the "previously" segments, but you can see that they didn't re-shoot the scene, as her teeth still move to make the "s".
