Mediocre, as a family we felt LET DOWN, our expectations where not met!
on 9 December 2012
OK, Lets explain, our family is 2 adults, 2 boy's aged 14 and 11.
Several weeks ago I came across on AMAZON a 22 episode American TV show I had never heard of before... This usually means that they was cancelled after the first season - and you then find the dvds turning up for cheap.
the DVD was £7.95 for 22 episodes!!! At that price cant help but give it a try out - can you!
The show was called - SUPERNATURAL, if you have never heard of it, check it out!
IT IS A MUST TV Show to see...
So over the past 6 weeks we have become SUPERNATURAL ADDICTS - its a show that has captivated both of our 2 boys away from their PS3! So that shows how good it is.
So after watch season 1-4, thought we would take a rest bite...
GRIMM - has all of a sudden ed hit the shelf's of both Amazon, and ASDA! COOL, another ME 2 Show!!!!
So rather than buying season 5 of SUPERNATURAL @ £15, we brought this as our FAMILY Saturday night TV treat!
SAD to say, after watching 4 episodes last night...
the FAMILY'S view point of this show...
Too slow, doesn't hold or captivate you. Story-lines are weak, you get to the plot so quick, and then the characters are not fully fleshed out - sorry for the pun! :-)
As for special effects, poor.
both boys have said: "DAD can you get Supernatural!"
At this point they both asked if they could play with their PS3!
IMHO - Goes to show to avoid me 2 TV shows, especially when there are so many good shows, why is it that American TV creates so many Me 2 shows... take a look at the moment there are so many Me 2 Supernatural Type shows in the genre! Whats wrong with something DIFFERENT. Picking up Daisys, O-Zee, Jericho and Firefly all fitted this bill, but all got axed!
SORRY to say, as a FAMILY we have given this TV show a BIG THUMBS DOWN.
Now going to order SUPERNATURAL 5 to make up for our mistake!
Oh also the CARS are much better and cooler in Supernatural - Dean's black Impal is so cool!
OK follow up... (Feb 2013)
We have now finished all 22 episodes, like all new shows the introduction of new characters and story lines take time to merge.
In this case, it took until episode 10-12 before we gelled with the characters and story lines.
I think, that now as a series it has caught up with the likes of Supernatural, yes its its first season, yes its slow in the beginning... But have to now admit, my first review was over harsh, but our baseline was Supernatural. So Grimm had a lot of catching up to do.
I think that this was realised while they was filming the series, as towards the end, GRIMM takes on the character of Supernatural, even having all of a sudden a LOT of COOL cars! wonder why...
