A police cop discovers he's part of the Grimm bloodline, who now has to fight crime and monsters.
Why It Sucks
- Despite what the title says, it's nothing like the Grimm fairy tales or even has the tone, charm, or any of the stuff from it, meaning this show is a basic insult to Brothers Grimm and its fans alike. There's not even a single fairy tale adapted into a modern-day episode, as much as the crimes are just your typical "breaking-the-law" stuff but with a twist.
- The only thing this show does have from the fairy tales are its quotes that appear in nearly every episode, but they hardly relate to anything that occurs.
- Monsters do not have anything to do with the Grimm fairy tales.
- The entire premise of this show, thanks to it being completely unfaithful to the fairy tales, massively rips-off BTSW, due to having much of the same elements, following a character who has to hunt down supernatural creatures, along with him having a sidekick who's also supernatural-like.
- The names of the monsters are completely dumb and stupid, since they sound extremely gibberish-like. For example, werewolves are "blutbads," bears are "jagerbars," and dragons are "damonfeurs."
- The characters are just flat, dull, and boring. Nick is your typical "hero" whose parents are dead, Monroe is the bad comic-relief, Hank Griffin is a side character who does little-to-no affect to most of the episodes, and Sean Renard, the antagonist, tries to show his evil by being mentally creepy and flat, yet when he does that, it slogs on to being a total snorefest.
- Bad CGI on the creatures.
- The monsters always have to sound creepy, regardless of how they look. The males always have to sound deep, hoarse, and dark, while the females constantly scream and roar for no reason.
- Awful acting and writing.
- Some of the monsters are absolutely stupid, like some of them are rats, mice, and even sheep.
- It even made Adolf Hitler a monster.
- Nick's aunt is literally forgotten after she dies, making the first few episodes about her pointless since she was never brought up for the rest of the entire show.
- The Soundtrack is pretty good.
- Monroe, despite being an unfunny character, is likable.
- Despite the awful CGI, some of the designs of the monsters, like the dragons, are pretty cool.
