What Makes GRIMM a Great Television Series?

Updated on July 14, 2016


Grimm is a television series that started in late 2011. The show follows Nick, a police officer, who starts to see people change into some sort of creature for just a second. We find out that he is a GRIMM. GRIMMs can see these creatures called wessen but everyone else just see's them as humans. Nick must arrest the wessen that do not abide by the law and gain help from the few that do. The show takes classic GRIMM fairy tails and gives them a darker and more interesting twist. This show was loved from the very beginning. Season one received a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and has been gaining fans ever since. The show is scheduled for a sixth season which shows that it is successful. But the question is: why is GRIMM such a successful show? That is what we will be reviewing in this article.


Before a show becomes famous people actually have to start watching it. The show had an obvious attraction. It was classic fairy tails, everyone wanted to see what they transformed these classic stories into. That attracted the fans, now they just needed to keep the fans entertained. The show had all the elements to be an absolute success; GRIMM fairy tails, suspense, monsters, and great characters. An online review described GRIMM as, "Great characters around a monster of the week, tucked away in the haunted forests of Portland. The formula of creepies and crawlies with a sense of humor to tie it all together worked." Another review said, "This is a GREAT show!...Cleverly written and the actors are wonderful!" GRIMM is intense but not too intense. Parent reviews have rated GRIMM available for ages 13 and up and another rated it 10 and up. It is not too scary for children which brings in another fan appeal. The show also managed to keep sex scenes rare and non-graphic. As more and more started watching, the more popular GRIMM became. Seasons 2 and 3 both received 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Season 4 was rated a 96% and season 5 was rated 95%, all by Rotten Tomatoes. Personally, I love GRIMM and would recommend it as a must-watch.


Through this article, we have seen that GRIMM brought success by attracting their audience and keeping them captivated. A quote from GRIMM fairy tails says, "I am impelled not to squeak like a grateful and frightened mouse but to roar..." This quote applies to the television series. GRIMM went big. They didn't shy out with a timid show, they roared out with a risky twist on classic literature. And the best part is that they actually pulled it off.
