Happy Almost Holidays Gasmii! I hope your December is going better than mine; if you’re reading this and you’re not dealing with stress induced bowel failure related to an end-of-year tsunami of work and online shopping for gifts at 3am because it’s the only free time you have, I salute you! I also hate you a little. To the rest of you, I feel your pain.
So NBC is starting to remind me of a shitty boyfriend: at first, they’re all consistent and fun and spend time with you, then BAM! Radio silence for a couple of weeks, followed by apologies and overcompensation. No Grimm for weeks, then TWO EPISODES IN ONE WEEK? Do they not know how busy I am right now?? Come on, NBC! The world revolves around me and my Grimm-homies. Get with the program!
I hope to have both recaps up for you in the next two days. If you want to get caught up or reminisce about the first four episodes, you can catch up here:
Crankiness aside, the double-dose of Grimm was much appreciated by this Scrooge. I’m digging the modern spin on fairy tales. First we are treated to the Pied Piper re-imagined as a tortured teenage musical prodigy from the wrong side of the tracks who enchants the village kids with house music.
Then, on the second and arguably strongest episode yet, we get to see what happens when the three little pigs get tired of the big bad wolf’s bullshit. Hell hath no fury like a piggy scorned!!
He’s a pig! And a cop
Attention fellow Monroe fans! Episode 6 centers around his blutbad history. We also get to see his limits when it comes to helping Nick. This episode actually had me riveted to the TV! I loved seeing Nick realize how complicated being a Grimm and a cop is really going to be, and Monroe got to do more than provide comic relief and fairy tale exposition.
While you wait for the recaps, please get cracking on your thoughts on the episode in the comments below! I love reading your insights and thoughts! Consider it your Christmas present to LadyBaldy
