Today, for the A-Z Challenge, I chose one of my favorite shows: Grimm.
YOU GUYS I LOVE THIS SHOW!! Its so good! Its clever and a little bit creepy, but SO COOL. It focuses on Det. Nick Burkhardt, who discovers that he is a "Grimm"; someone who can see the monsters within people, and who is tasked to fight the evil ones. It's a great twist on the original Grimm fairytales, and often opens the episodes with a quote from the corresponding story, or a story with a similar creature.
You will, if not fall in love with, at least root hard for the characters. My OTP is part of this show (and it's not Nick and his girlfriend, although they're cute). And as you watch, you're always hoping, waiting, "Will they tell their friend so-and-so about Nick's gift, and the unbelievable 'fairytale' world that's always secretly around them? How long will it take so-and-so to believe them? Will so-and-so lose their mind first?"
Watch and find out! Don't watch with young children (it can be scary! and also, very occasionally, gross. Blood and guts and whatnot.). You don't need to be too afraid, though. I'm a very, very easily scared person, but this show isn't nightmare-inducing. It's just EPIC.
Also, David Giuntoli is really hot. *COUGHSPUTTER* I mean WHAT? WHAT DID I SAY? I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING YOU'RE A CRAZY PERSON SHUSH.
