tv: grim 1-3

Huh. Anyone watching?

I wish I hated it, because that would be less stressful than my current state of do not care so much when Eddie the Big Bad Wolf (yo, I need a few more weeks before I am casually throwing out German, kay? I was convinced the blonde woman was a hosebeast and wanted to cry until I saw it written) or Hank the partner aren't on screen.

I am objecting because this is the stupidest hero ever, and I was in goddamn Smallville, so I know my stupid heroes, and Clark is a miracle of good sense and tact and I am apologizing to Clark right now for being a little hard on him, but I so did not know this was coming.

Here are the facts as presented:
1.) You, the current Grim (it's a title and apparently a state of being, but not a decent superpower to be seen, unless random trauma by eyesight is a legit power) is dying of cancer but never tell the only other heir to the--grimness?--that he is The One. Brilliant.

2.) You throw this at him and tell him to leave his gf (what?) and then die in two eps without giving him any working information (WHY?).

3.) He's a godawful idiot. He a.) does not accuse the blonde not-hosebeast (herribeast?) of trying to kill Aunt Marie for no reason (I mean, no reason. There is no reason when it was kind of a giant big deal and in a hospital) and then kills the people who are taking revenge on the EVIL GODDAMN NOT-HOSEBEAST (horisbeast?) because they are evil evil evil. EVIL. WHO ARE TRYING TO WARN YOU OF EVIL IN THEIR DYING BREATH.

Worse, he's boring. I mean, paint drying is more interesting. He's not even angsty or like, confused; he's just dumb.

Yo, the Big Bad Wolf (I will never stop loving that) is more useful here than the Grim is. And Hank should take over grimming already; the man actually is good at his job, has common sense, and did I mention is not an idiot?

...on the other hand, I have low standards and I love this new twist on the Brother Grimm and I love all the weird lsd-inspired monsters, and I love the Big Bad Wolf and Hank saving the world.

In other news - Bella Swan versus Thor. Or maybe it's called Snow White and the Huntsman, IDK. I am just saying, Bella Swan versus Thor is how I am seeing it. With swords! here, in case you gotta know.

I do not think this qualifies as torn so much as I will take what I can get, sadly.

From [personal profile] ratcreature, more on the pseudo-German here. Oh, hilarity.

I'll give Grimm a couple of episodes and if it keeps going like it is, I'll drop it. Once upon a Time is much more interesting right now.

That's who Nick reminds me of! I recorded last night's episode and watched some of it today. Dark hair, big eyes, pretty, brick-like stupidity—Nick is totally Clark, without the redeeming feature of being a high-school student and, therefore, legitimately too hormone-addled to think clearly.

Alas, I didn't see a Lex-a-like in last night's episode.

They called the queen bee a Mellischwuler. I don't even... what? Mellifer (her people) apparently means honey-bearing which kind of makes sense, but Schwuler means "gay man". In what universe does it make sense to call the queen of the bee people a honey-bearing gay man? O_O

And he's being played by a women! (as I said elsehwere, I'd much rather watch a show about a trans gay man in change of honey production that whatever this seems to be)

Am I really supposed to believe that bella swan was going to become prettier than charlize theron? Is that the premise of the movie? Are you kidding me? And Bella Swan v Thor is an accurate reading of the movie. It looks flashy and pretty though. If I ignore all the Swan moments I could even enjoy it.

Yeah... I was so excited about it, because it's set and filmed in Portland, but then there were absolutely 0 recognizable Portland landmarks AND the only redeeming character is the Big Bad Wolf, Portland Style. I'll give it a couple more eps to find its feet but Once Upon a Time is soooo much better.

I'll probably go see Bella vs Thor. I'd rather see indifferent fantasy than what passes for movies most of the time. Plus, the huntsman is definite eye candy.

I completely agree Re: stupid, stupid hero - and I really wonder why the big bad wolf is still helping him.

And just to clarify: Hexenbiest = Witch (Hexe) + Biest (beast - in german you would use Biest similar to like Americans use bitch)


Mom said she liked it. I've not seen it although I'm planning on checking it out later as I'm too invested in SPN to watch it now. It sounds like it makes SPN an Oscar level winning show though.

I've been enjoying Once Upon a Time. I'm enjoying the women as the main stars of the show with agency (the Evil Queen, Snow White, Emma, etc.). It kind of ironic that the men are more sidelined atm anyway and get the usual women roles of being the love interest. Like tonight's ep of Cinderella and her prince. TPH, although I like the modern era stories, I'm finding myself like the fairytale land flashbacks more.

More stupid than Scott in Teen Wolf - that would take some doing.
Masochism makes me want to see Grimm now.

Snow White and the Huntsman looks surprisingly good... hm, another one to put on my summer to watch list... thanks for sharing!

...on the other hand, I have low standards and I love this new twist on the Brother Grimm and I love all the weird lsd-inspired monsters, and I love the Big Bad Wolf and Hank saving the world.

I know, right? His Aunt is even dumber than he is for leaving him with shit all info! I am very intrigued by his boss, Mr. Sexy Evil Overlord Something, and why he is protecting a Grimm. IT MAKES NO SENSE, but damn if I'm not watching it anyway!
