Favorites ~ GRIMM

'I recently discovered a new serie, called GRIMM. I start watching it in december 2011 and I must say that I really like it. As you maybe guessed this serie contains an big wink to the fairytales of the Grimm Brothers. Tales like Little Red Ridinghood or The Pied Piper of Hamelin in an newer version.'


'Detective Nick Burkhardt seems to be an Grimm, a groups of hunters. It's their job to keep the humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. Upon learning of his destiny, he has to protect every living soul from the sinister storybook characters that have infiltrated the real world.'

"Many of the episodes center on stories written by the Grimm Brothers, although to date, at least two of the episodes have not featured tales compiled by the Grimm Brothers, namely, the second episode, featuring "The Three Bears" (also known as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears") and the sixth episode, featuring "The Three Little Pigs". The other episodes feature adaptations of stories compiled by the Grimm Brothers, albeit with considerable artistic license; for example, the third episode is based on "The Queen Bee," compiled by the Brothers' Grimm, but in large part takes its understanding (and the opening quotation) from the 1955 movie Queen Bee, and other than making reference in title to the Grimms' version of the tale, does not relate to plot of the tale in any way. Other episodes, such as Episode 4, "Lonelyhearts", bear little if any resemblance to the original inspiring tales (in this case, "Bluebeard"). For example, although both the episode and the tale tell of a rich man who traps and tortures women, the Grimms do not attribute his success at doing so to his sexual desirability in their telling, nor does the tale involve consumption of live toads." ©Wikipedia
