Grimm Cancellation

Cancellation of GRIMMDaveF1953 [1]

Early Work

I realize this is an exercise in futility, yet I feel I must keep trying as hard as I can to be heard. The show " Grimm " which was recently cancelled is a big mistake for this Network. I will be trying to find a group, who, like myself feel the show was wronged due to The name of the show being Grimm. To the many people who thought this series was a " Hansel & Grettle"  type of show have no idea what they've missed. Simply re-naming the show - like Burkhardts Monster Hunters - Grimm. You get the gist. The show has left a lot of special things on the back burner. There really is no end in sight as to where this show could go. Supernatural is now in its 13th? season. The CW has a winner as did you…

Hey, Grimmsters and other contributors to the wiki of Grimm. I just want to say....Well, goodbye. I stopped watching after the fifth episode of season five, and for some reason besides schoolwork, I never got myself back into the show (and it's not just because Bitsie returned from the show, don't even get started on that), and I feel like I'm never going to watch the show, even if I get the complete collection on either DVD or Blu-ray. You see, guys, I just got uninterested in returning to watch the show, and I never liked the way they had every character that was 'Main' return alive at the very end. It reminded me of Criminal Minds where as long as you're a member of the BAU, you're pretty much un-killable, something that I utterly d…

Wondering where I was?

Hey, fellow grimmsters, it is I Scout Trooper 164 returning with another blog. You may be wondering where I was this whole time? Well, truth be told, I disappeared during Season 5 of the show after I saw Bitsie Tulloch return (as much as I get the part of never being truly dead, I can't help but feel like that ruined the whole 'vengeance' part of the season for me). Then, during the December of 2016, my computer ended up dying out because the processor burnt up (I am looking at a new PC on Best Buy right now, the CyberPowerPC to be precise), making editing, if I ever wanted to, a whole lot harder. I think though I'm glad I disappeared for a while, because it helped clear my head from here about the anger I caused here, and it made thin…

What will happen?

Grimm is going to be airing it's very last episode in just a couple of days. I know shows have to end at some point (although I don't know why a ton of anime last so long though), but that's not what I want to know. The truth is...What will happen after the show ends? Most of the users here only contribute to this wiki, and once the show ends and no other news of spin-offs or anything for this show will cause it to be completely abandoned. I haven't been around for years since I learned that Bitsie Tulloch returned (good actress, but her eyes don't match up the rest of her face) mainly because I felt it ruined the whole 'vengeance' part of Season 5. But still, what's gonna happen when the show is finally done for good? A wiki can onl…

Not doing fairytales?

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…

Thoughts on Ep. 610, "Blood Magic"

      "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…

Sasha Roiz and 'speaking in tongues'

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…

A tilt in the axis

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…

Wesen Superheroes

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…

Top 10 things I want from Grimm Season 6

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.

7. The return of Wesen we haven't seen in a while

Paring down to essentials

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. Here's what I came up with, and if you disagree, please feel free to say so in the comments. Better yet, offer an improved alternative.

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

Juliette – Was aus Liebe getan wird, gescheiht immer jenseits von Gut und Bose. (Whatever shall be done out of love, takes place beyond Good and Evil) Nietzsche

what is "the Stick"?

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.

Grimm Video Game

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.
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…

Grimm Season 5 Speculations

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.

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…

In the eyes of a Grimm

"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. :)

Funniest Moments on Grimm

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

Is Diana...Cursed?

Okay, let's review...

  • Kelly had her for a while...she's dead.
  • Kenneth & Juliette had her for a little while...they're dead.
  • 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.

Dropped Plot Points? Maybe Not...

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.
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.

Silence is Deafening

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…
