And we all know what the History Channel's take on him is! :O

The "scooby gang" is getting a bit large now.  I think someone will go.  My guess is either Wu or Juliette.  Unfortunately it may be Wu because they spent all season on the Juliette thing and while I wouldn't mind having her leave the show because I love the Wu character, killer her off now seems odd after spending all that time getting her "back".

 

Having said that, most of the local Wessen know by now that Nick is a Grimm so the number of people that know is pretty large so the "inner circle" isn't that big considering.

I haven't been watching this season on a regular basis. Is Wu in on the secret now? I can see Julette being a useful member of the Scoobies since she is a vet. I would hate to see Wu go. They'd never get any cases solved without him just walking through scenes going "Check this out" with the key piece of evidence in his hand.

Wu is definitely not "in" on the secret. He's a likable cast member, but easily replaceable.

I missed this week's episode because of the move to Tuesday night. I'll have to catch it up online but does anyone know fer sure if the Tuesday night move is permanent? I liked the Friday night slot.

Won't know until the network up fronts where they put up their schedules for fall.  NBC I believe is May 13th.  Your DVR should have caught it's move to Tuesday.  For the past 13 years (got my first Tivo in 2000) I don't even know what night show are on anymore.  wink.gif

That's assuming he uses a DVR with name-based recording.

I wouldn't be surprised if Grimm left Fridays next season, what with it being one of the few dramas on NBC dramas with a semblance of passable ratings.

Certainly possible.  The experiment to Tuesday was to see if it could improve with a great lead-in and hold some of the lead-ins numbers.  It certainly did improve and help on to more of The Voice then any other show they have tried there so who knows what they'll do.  Personally I hope they leave it on Friday as it's the highest rated show in the demo on Friday and it'll have a greater chance of lasting more seasons on Friday.

I always looked forward to Friday to record and watch Grimm. I had the same happiness when Fringe was on Fridays too. Not much on that night for me to watch.

I also looked forward to it on Fridays for the same reasons but bottom line, if it needs to be on Tuesday to survive I'm 100% behind that.

I hope it does indeed survive on Tuesday.
post #1094 of 1520
It isn't that NBC is moving it to Tuesdays to give Grimm a better chance of survival. Shows on Fridays always have the best chance of survival, since Friday is the least competitive night of programming. The problem is that Grimm is doing so well on Fridays that NBC is starting to think that it might be "wasting" the show by having it there, so it's trying Grimm on Tuesdays to see if it still gets good ratings in a slot that's actually competitive. If Grimm leaves Fridays, it's only because NBC wants to get better ratings on other nights.

If anything, moving Grimm to another night makes the show more likely to get cancelled, assuming it doesn't perform as well as the other networks' lineups on the new night. Low-performing shows sometimes get saved from cancellation by moving to Fridays, but since each network has a limited number of Friday slots, not every weak show can go there. Grimm would be safer on Fridays, but it will probably end up as another casualty of NBC's desperate attempts to get better ratings. For my part, I don't particularly care if that happens, since Grimm isn't that interesting. At least we'd be spared from Juliette. The only reason I bother watching it is because most of the other options are even worse.

I think of Grimm as a guilty pleasure rather than an exercise in excellence. I too liked it on Fridays. If it goes belly up, so be it.

I mostly agree. But Grimm has shown hints that it could be much more than just fluff and actually be a very good horror/fantasy show. So far its been two steps forward, one step back so its improvement has been slow, but I still have hope it can be an interesting genre show.

Nope. No DVR. Learned that from the old VCR days. If I can't watch it when it's first aired because I"m busy, chances are I won't have time to catch the recording either before the next epi is aired .

Can Revolution stand on it's own without the massive lead in support of The Voice? Very early prognosticating...don't think so. Glad Grimm will be back on Friday, it's continued success there should keep it safer than the more cut-throat Tuesday.'

post #1100 of 1520

Well, at least they didn't move it to 10 pm.    Or worse, at 8 pm.

Ironside? Dracula? Its nice to see NBC is taking a chance on original ideas.

The whole extended woge reveal scene with Juliette, Monroe, Rosalee and Bud at the spice shop was great.  Having Bud along for comic relief really added to the proceedings.  Thought it was a nice touch that they had Juliette walk out right in the middle (no doubt to a chorus of groans from impatient viewers) only to come right back.  Seemed like one last little dig at the the audience over the backlash about the length of time it took to bring her into the fold.  At least you can say they have been self aware of the sentiments brewing in their audience.  Likewise when Nick came to the shop later for their rundown on how it went down and said something to the effect of, "I really have been waiting a long time for this.", and they cut in the reply from Monroe, "We all have.", practically winking at the camera tongue.gif.

Nice catch.

Since Officer Wu is in a lot of cases regarding Wesen, I think the should know also (since he believes some weird stuff already)

It's zombie night tomorrow..
post #1105 of 1520
Uh, the zombies were last week.

Can't have too many zombies. Last week's ep wasn't concluded.
post #1107 of 1520
I'm betting Wu is the one who got zombie spit in his face in the preview, and that's how he'll get written out of the show so that the entire main cast knows what's going on for season 3.
post #1108 of 1520
But I bet Rosalee will find a way to cure him back, the "zombies" are just some kind of trance induced via this Wesen spit

GRIMM
NBC, 10:00 p.m. ET
SEASON FINALE: Last week’s episode ended with a nice visual image: the zombie-making bad guy locking his entranced victims into a railroad shipping car, only to have the camera pull back and reveal that it’s only one freight car among hundreds. Tonight, this show’s zombies come closer to being set free – and the puffy-and-spiky-faced man shall lead them.
post #1109 of 1520
I think I must have missed an ep...don't recall zombies at all.
