Has anyone else noticed that they hardly ever base episodes on fairytales enymore?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. It's just a bit strange that the whole piont of Grimm was that the episodes where all twisted version of classic fairytales, myths, legends and the like, Which is why they have quotes at the begining. And the Wesen were all based on such as well
However from season 4 onwards ( and half of season 3) it just seems to be a case "write what you want and find a good quote that maches, even if it's just something a famous siad once". A good example would be the Season 4 episode "Thanks for the Memories" which litteraly had "Knolege is Power" as it's quote, That and the Gedachtnis Esser didn't seem to make any reaference to pa…Read more >

"Wow." I think that was the first thing I said, with teary eyes to be sure, at the conclusion of "Blood Magic," as Grimm's 120th episode pretty much left me speechless. Despite the many great episodes that have come of this series, this one truly felt different and stands alone. It was spectacular on so many levels – beautifully written, acted, produced, edited, directed... everything you can think of, they completely nailed it. A huge, huge shout out to guest stars Nancy Linehan Charles and Frank Birney, who did an absolutely incredible job of portraying the Stantons. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can give to those involved in making this episode happen is this: as best as I can remember, never before has an episode of Grimm introd…
As someone with a background in linguistics, I am endlessly, joyously surprised by Sasha's ability to handle differing languages with a variegated toolbox of sounds and modes of expression, rather than the common occurrence of it being clear that an actor has been drilled phonetically with Anglicized thoughts re-dressed in the necessary other forms.
In a Canadian, phenomenal French is not a shock, but his German and Russian each display the clear, known qualities of their root without slipping off into parody, and his personal background as one born in Tel Aviv presumably feeds into this. However, as a British person, I was impressed by how much Guildford has remained with him, as shown in the tone and consistency of 'Jack'. All in all, his…Read more >
Overall, I am enjoying many things about Season 6, including Rosalee and Monroe's preparations for parenthood and Sean Reynard's apparent remorse, but there is one element which frequently assails my willing suspension - Diana, and specifically her power level and range. The always potent little girl has become the 'deus ex machina', fixing the problems, furnishing the clues and, for me, rendering the team largely redundant much of the time. Even if they want to, it doesn't appear they can fight her, and a little girl who can make her daddy kill and smother his girlfriend to death doesn't seem like someone who will hesitate to do whatever her whims prod her to. It feels occasionally as though Nick is only alive because Diana likes Kelly, s…Read more >

i love grimm and also superheroes. as they say, next grimm Kelly Schade-Burkhardt, he would be zauber-grimm or super-grimm. i will call him grimm patrol and also i made his villains.
king heinrich von konigsburg is son of king viktor von konigsburg, he is king of austria. he is equivalent to marvels baron zemo. he owns magical sword who hexenbiests gave him. the sword gaves him power and immortality.
so anyone knows her, she is adalind schade. but i've call her frau percht. frau percht is witch goddess in alpine folklore. so i thought that hexenbiests are based in that goddess. she's enemy of camma (diana schade-renard), eve (juliette silverstone), grimm patrol (kelly schade-burkhardt).

Hello there fellow Grimmsters!
Now that the new Grimm game is available, I have gotten many questions about it from friends and people who read my blog. I started to write mini updates about it in addition to my regular blog posts about Grimm and other TV shows and movies I like to watch.

Let me show my countrys culture and mythology to us.
Apsat is celestial bird like wesen, Apsat is god of birds in Svan mythology. When woged, they gain colorful feathers, beak and green eyes. They have wings in their arms, that they can fly. They are also Pureblood wesen like others (Maahes, Hippoi Athanathos, Ichor Athanathos and others).
Ali is red demon like wesen, they haunt pregnant woman like Aswang. they live in caves, woods and ruins. They are both, male and female. While males are monstrous and females are beautiful and seductive. When woged they gein red hair, blazing eyes and grey face. The name means "flame".

Hey guys, I have many thoughts to making Wesen Superheroes, we know that Grimms can protect humans, but Wesen. Grimms would be certainly superheroes, but Wesens would be amazingly. I have my thoughts here.
1) Drakaina- female Dämonfeuer superhero, teenager, the name is meaning in Greek "female dragon". So, I don't think about her costume, but it's similar to DCs Fire. That was my thought for Kelly's girlfriend.
2) Beowulf- male Blutbad, teenager too, his name is referenced to Beowulf epic poem. That Beowulf means "wolf".
3) Vulpecula or Rennert- female Fuchsbau, teenager, one name is meaning to constellation fox and second is for her slyness ( Reynard the Fox is trickster in some poems, but this bad idea because it is Sean's surname). Her cos…Read more >

When I first heard the news that the sixth season of Grimm will be its last, there's no other way to describe my reaction--my heart sank. I was admittedly emotional about it, despite the fact that I knew this might happen, but, being the optimist I am, I was hopeful that the only Grimm-related news that would soon arrive would be when season 6 was premiering. That said, over the past few days, I've really enjoyed thinking about how special this show truly is, sending my gratitude to a few people, and reflecting on how much Grimm has meant to me. Reading some of the thanks that have come from the cast and crew to the fans, I knew it was only a matter of time before I'd thank them right back. But that thank you does not only go o…

Grimm will premiere its sixth and sadly final season in January of the upcoming year. These are the things I really want to see before the show sadly ends.
10. More episodes based off of fairy tales
Lately we have had episodes that are based off of books or sayings more than we have had episodes based off of fairy tales. There are still many fairy tales that can be used as inspiration for episodes and I hope they go back to this concept.
9. Wu learning to manage NeanderWu
Wu's primal state is something I hope he can learn to control. This will help the team if he doesn't go primal when he can't control it.
8. More storyline episodes
More episodes that focus on wrapping up the show.

I was struck by how much Sean Renard is "The Slave of Duty" (to borrow the sub-title of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'The Pirates of Penzance'), and I wondered how far, reasonably, the other main characters might be summarised with single quotes.

Sean Renard – Necessitas dat legem non ipsa accipit. (Necessity gives law, it does not recognise law for itself) Publilius Syrus

I really hope that someone can explain to me why Frau Pech looks really older than Sean's mother and Henrietta. I can't understand it, because, as when Sean explained to Juliette who Henrietta was, Hexenbiests look younger than the way they should look as their real age.

Been reading alot of posts that refer to the stick Nick and Monroe recovered in Germany is part of the shaft of the Spear of Destiny or a branch from the Tree of Life. while certainly both ideas are plausable..... I present a different take:
Numerous references to Grimms and Knights Templar are used in the show. Relics the Templars were known to have possessed is the Holy Grail, and oh yeah........ A PIECE OF THE TRUE CROSS!!
Think about it: they say it looks like it broke off of something, right? and one of it's long edges appears to be squared off at an almost perfect 90` angle. If it was part of the spear it would be rounded off. Same for the Tree Of Life.

Hey guys, I decided to make a blog post about my theories for a Grimm video game. I know there's already one, Dark Legacy, but I had a few ideas I wanted to suggest. For those of you who have played ANY Elder Scrolls game, then some of these suggestions might just sound familiar. First, I wanted to start with character creation.Read more >
Section 1: Character Creation:
First step of character creation, you select whether you want to be a Grimm, a human, or a Wesen. Second step (if you chose Wesen) you pick your Wesen race and then gender. If you picked human or Grimm, you skip the Wesen race selection and just go on to gender. From then, you complete the rest of character creation.
Section 2: Quests:
First mission is when you arrive at Portland. You mak…

Thank YOU, Norberto Barba. For those who did not know, Norberto Barba disclosed on Twitter (April 7, 2016) that he will not be back next season on Grimm, but really thinking about it a bit, I don't think that's entirely true.
Even though I've never met or spoken with him, if you listen to what those who have worked with Norberto have to say about him, he's nothing but a true professional, incredibly generous, and definitely loved in particular by the Grimm family that has been built over the past five seasons. Check out some pictures of Norberto with the cast of other shows that he's worked on, such as Law & Order, and you'll see that he has a knack for forming great relationships with those he works with.

I hope this hasn't been made into a blog yet, but I'd like to share what I think might go down in Grimm Season 5 based on what I've seen of the first 10 episodes of the season.
DISCLAIMER: This isn't a spoiler discussion; it's only my thoughts/premonitions on the show that may or may not transpire. The below points contain subjective opinions on my part which other readers may or may not agree with.
1. The Grimm Keys may reveal the last resting place of the Knights Templar of the Crusades (i.e. some of the first Grimms) along with Grimm artifacts that were used by the Knights. I can't help but feel a Da Vinci Code-esque vibe to them.
2. Meisner may know more about the funds of Hadrian's Wall than he's letting on. In fact, I believe he and thi…

Okay, So recently I was thinking about Human evoloution, And then after I was thinking about it I watched Grimm, I then started to wonder how Wesen became a thing. Here is my theory
Just like homo-sapiens and Neanderthal sharing a common ancestor but spliting into two different species, I think Wesen were all at one point animals, However they somehow started evolving into hominid form, Walking on two legs ect, And they were constantly woged.
Now lets go to the Wesen wars, Wesen wared with Humans so they don't have to hide their Animal form, However they loose the wars and are cursed, They get a curse put on them trapping them into human bodies, And they can't reveal their animal selves without pain.
That would also explain Black Claw wantin…

"Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein." - Jenseits von Gut und Böse: Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft, Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
This quote, usually rendered as "Wrestle not with monsters, lest a monster ye become. And if you gaze into the Abyss, know also the Abyss gazes into you." in English, seems to me to encapsulate the Grimm-Wesen dyad, the impact of the Wesen darkening the Grimm's worldview with monsters and the Grimm's eyes of bottomless, swallowing darkness which enfolds the Wesen. It was just an idle thought, but one I felt the urge to share. :)

I am writing a fanfic action/romance for my favourite man, Cpt Renard. Would anybody read fanfic with not only a new character but a new Wessen? I want to create a seductress who uses her powers for good. Renard falls for her with a great big thunk reversing the norm where woman throw themselves at him. He's going to be desperate but she's going to be tough want g a man who wants her for her and not because of her Wessen power. She'll be a Zaurberin .

I'm new here. Love the show, and as much as I like Nick, I'm a huge fan of Sean Renard...no Canadian bias ;-p. I am a frustrated writer and years ago I wrote fanfic for Stargate SG1. Now I'm going to give Grimm my spin.
I hope it's okay if I use this site for research and meeting new people. I searched the net & this is by far the best set up & most informative out there.
I guess that's it for now. I am not so patiently waiting for the return of the show, so any info on when it will be back would be appreciated!

I hope there hasn't been a blog post with a similar title/subject.
Just wanted everyone's take on the funniest moments in Grimm that they can recall.
I don't mean running gags like:
1. Sarcastic Wu
2. Worrywart Bud
I mean specific scenes you can remember that made you really laugh out loud (if these are specific Wu/Bud/etc. scenes, please list them!).
For me personally, the one scene that made me laugh very hard was during the first episode of season 3 (The Ungrateful Dead) where Nick approaches a bar all zombie like (with a distinct swagger). His head moves and we see the name of the bar (The Tippy Canoe). Very silly, I know, but I had to pause the episode due to laughing so hard. What can I say? I laugh easy :D

Okay, let's review...
- Kelly had her for a while...she's dead.
- Kenneth & Juliette had her for a little while...they're
- The King had her...he's dead.
So this made me wonder if there is some sort of 'curse' connected to Diana.
The old folk tales & fairy tales sometimes had a Gypsy Curse that was featured in the story.
This show had a Gypsy Queen, Stefania, whom Adalind sold Diana to in exchange for getting her Hexenbiest powers back.
Stefania kept her side of the bargain...but Adalind did not.
Betraying a Gypsy was often what led to a Gypsy Curse being cast upon the betrayer...and often that curse was on the entire family line of that betrayer.
But what about Adalind and Meisner? -- You might ask. Heh.
I thought about them too.
Adalind might be o…

If you've watched Grimm since the beginning, then you may have noticed...and been frustrated by...characters or story elements that appear and then are gone, and rarely mentioned again.Read more >
The Keys, the Coins, are two of these story elements.
Then there are characters like Elizabeth and Diana, who appeared and then disappeared.
They may come back, or we may never see them again.
It occurred to me that this is like the storytelling that we see in old folk tales and fairy tales.
In those, there are elements and characters that appear simply to further the Main Story...then they are gone.
We don't question this because it is a stand-alone story.
In a TV Show, we've come to expect a different way of presenting a story though.
Most of the time, a TV Show i…
The lack of comments after the airing of the first episode of Season 5 has me worried. Has the Grimm audience disappeared? Are they in shock not knowing what to think?
There is no great criticism. But there is no great enthusiasm. My husband's attitude was sort of neutral. I suggested it was a very unfocused episode where Nick ran in circles reacting to emotions inside of him but having no clear purpose or plan. He was ready to agree with me. Usually he argues points with me but this time he readily agreed the episode was disappointing in some vague way.
All the other websites I follow are quiet too. There was more enthusiasm before the episode aired than there seems to be tonight. If it was bad, then certainly there would be many comments…Read more >
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were German linguists, cultural researchers and academics at a time when their native Electorate of Hesse was occupied by Napoleon's troops from 1806 to 1813. Since the French ran the government, French language and culture was promoted by the occupiers over German native language and culture.
The Household Tales of the Brother's Grimm, published in 1812, became immediately popular with other German academics as a sort of intellectual resistance to the occupying French. In that regard the Grimm fairy tales are connected closely with tyranny (as Germans saw it) of Napoleon Bonaparte.

He got all of her, except the innermost box and the kiss. He never knew about the box, and in time he gave up trying for the kiss.

Why did Adalind have to "drink her mother?" Grimm's storylines seem to have been taken from the events of a historical princess instead of a fairytale one this time. Maybe this is from some biographical work that hasn't been quoted yet but the drinking her mother is too close to what 19 year old Marie Louise had to do in 1810, around the time of the Grimm Brothers.
They have already quoted Voltaire and Ferdinand Foch. Why not some biography of Napoleon and his women?

Idea for a TV series: A type of Wesen who works for animal control but is schizophrenic so that he sees all the animals he captures as having human characteristic. Sort of a reverse of Grimm's seeing Wesen.
