A Fairytale Cop Series Called Grimm…Wait, What?

With Autumn, (or ‘The Fall‘ if you’re reading this across the pond), approaching fast there has been a deluge of announcements regarding new TV series coming to a small screen near you. But one which stood out from all the rest was NBC’s Grimm, for obvious reasons.

Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things… things he couldn’t quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he’s not like everyone else, he’s a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as “Grimms” who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey – albeit a reluctant one at first – as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can’t quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a “big bad wolf.” Literally!

While the Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, imagine if the villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.

Oh yes they did! (via Warming Glow)

Avast! Trailer For Boardwalk Empire Series 2.

We are only half way through the first series of Boardwalk Empire, (a crime in itself, we know). Our tardiness in completing the series is mainly because we felt it was a little draggy. Obviously not in the high heels, stockings and feather boa sense of the word, but for us at least it just seemed a tad slow.

We will however push on now that a second has been filmed and is scheduled to appear on TV in the near future. As you’ll see from the trailer above most of the main characters return with Nucky Thompson on the war path and what looks like the inclusion of the Klan…with Gatling guns.

Bear Grylls Makes a Sweater…From A Dead Baby Seal.

Aw hell naw! Aw hell yes! The man who lied to the world about being dropped into unforgiving terrain miles from civilisation is back on Discovery with a new series of Man Vs Wild. The hyperactive survivalist is this time on an island in Scotland and as you can see from the video above his challenege is to swim to the nearby main land. In desperate need of a wetsuit for the crossing through the icy waters Mr Grylls stumbles upon a dead baby seal and in only a matter of minutes has excitedly stripped the animal of it’s skin and fashioned a rather lovely, if yet a tad tight, wife beater vest to keep himself warm. We’re quite sure the judges and Heidi Klum will pass him through to the next round, if only for creative flare. (via Warming Glow)
