It showed that the container come all the way from somewhere across the Atlantic before making it's way around to the Pacific, into the Columbia River and up to Portland. The dark, rainy scenes also established a "grim" mood and atmosphere. It's the kind of thing many would cite as adding higher production values instead of simply showing dead bodies in a container at the port with someone telling someone else where it came from. It's amazing the lack of patience many viewers exhibit these days. You don't happen to have a prescription for Ritalin do you
As far as Juliette's dark eyes go, you do realize Grimm is a fantasy show about monsters right? Did you ever wonder if the police in Sunnydale freaked out due to all the vampires, demons etc running around town creating havoc in Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Perhaps you would be better served to limit your viewing to sports and documentaries on PBS so as to not exceed your threshold of suspending disbelief?
Regardless if it was 50 seconds or 5 minutes, it still was pointless and could of been better served with something that made the point better, having something in there for almost a minute that served no real purpose and just took away from the show unncessarily. Trying to show us that it came a long way, really? People don't realize ships on the ocean take awhile to get somewhere?
As for his girlfriend, I did not watch buffy and what in the world does that have to do with this show? Are they in the same universe together, are they sequels? What happened in buffy has no relevence to this show, buffy was a different kind of show and how they portrayed their universe of supernaturals is completely different then the universe of Grimm which has tried to show you that only other creatures can see each other. So I have to limit my viewing because it did not make sense that her doctors ignore her pitch black eyes? What a stupid comment on your part. Even if this is a fantasy show, we still have be invested into the show and they still have to follow some rules or they could just all start flying in the air with no explanation but based on your comment we wouldn't care because it is a fantasy show so don't question anything.
This is one of the best shows on TV, but I still am not going to blindly watch it and ignore all mistakes they make. I will NOT drink your kool-aid!
