A Grimm Future

Posted in TV on 03/19/2012 by shaundaniels78

NBC has ordered a second season for the freshman genre/procedural Grimm and so the show will be getting a full 22-episode pick up for its sophomore season.  The peacock network had released the news of the renewal hot on the heels of CBS renewing 13 shows for for the Fall 2012 season.  Grimm is slated to return next year on its regular Friday night time slot.
Traditionally, Friday night has been the Florida of time slots, or the place TV shows go to die.  Grimm, on the other hand, has quietly built both viewership and a dedicated fan base on Friday nights.  The show has been pulling in around 5 million viewers on average and has been slowly increasing viewership in small quantities.  It follows Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), who is the last in the lineage of the Grimm family…yes, the very same Grimms that wrote the fairytales.  The Grimms’ job was to keep the balance between the things that go bump in the night and humans.  Included in those things that go bump in the night is a Wieder Blutbad, or the Big Bad Wolf, played by Silas Weir Mitchell.  This Big Bad Wolf is friendly, a vegetarian, and even helps Burkhardt solve Grimm-related crimes.  Burkhardt operates in both worlds, keeping the unknowing humans safe from the mythical creatures and vice versa.  Grimm also star Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch and Sasha Roiz, and can be seen on NBC on Fridays at 9/8c, right after shuffleboard.

A mere three days passed after Fox handed down a cancellation notice to Terra Nova, the hot stove heated up over a possible new home for the show.  Currently, the rumor mill has the dinosaur/time travel/survival series going the way of Netflix.  It’s as if show creators Kelly Marcel and Craig Silverstein were expecting this bit of news and planning to shop the show around right from the cancellation get-go.  Although Netflix is known for its streaming and DVD rental subscription service, it isn’t new to the TV resurrection game; in 2011, the company announced that they would be distributing Season 4 of Arrested Development, which will serve as a lead-in to an eventual film.

Land of the Rising Daywalker

Eric Brooks, aka Blade, got an anime facelift thanks to Marvel Anime on G4.  The animated series Blade would have flown completely under The Fright Channel radar if it wasn’t for our return to Attack of the Show and its commercial breaks as the show’s ads persuaded us to watch.  Our first surprise came at the end in the credits where Warren Ellis was listed as a writer for the series.  Of course, we promptly sat up and took notice though it’s unclear if he wrote the English translation but his name alone is enough to make it worth viewing.  The show is produced in conjuction with Marvel Comics Entertainment and Studio Madhouse, whom you may know from such little animes as Death Note, Vampire Hunter D: Blood Lust and Ninja Scroll.
