Grimm is a police procedural that follows a cop, Nick Burkhardt, who finds out he is descended from a line of Grimms, who are supernatural exterminators basically, though he personally doesn't kill every creature he sees, unlike those who came before him. Very soon you realize that all of Portland's crime has to be committed by creatures with weird Germanic sounding names. Yes, it's a bit cheesy. I mean, I don't think Nick has run across a normal criminal since he inherited his "gift." Also, his trailer. I should never forget to mention his airstream trailer of baddie hunting gear that he doesn't logically keep in his garage, but at a storage place across town. His superior is a baddie of some sort, not sure what kind because the mythology of the show is more than a little muddled, his partner is inept and more than usually hostile, their underling is developing weird Renfield traits like eating paperclips while sashaying about with the paperwork and Nick's fiance is pretty dull and looks about 20 years older than Nick with his Bieber-esque hairdo. The special effects are so bad, you long for the days of cheap prosthetics from Buffy. Yet the show draws you in in spite of, or maybe because of it's cheesey camp.
