I liked it too, Vit!

Having high expectations for "Grimm" as well. The commercials were so nice and creepy!

I only saw the first episode of Prime Suspect, but I couldn't get into it. Grimm looks like it has promise for me though.

i've not seen a single ad for grimm. is it coming to network tv? ("creepy" doesnt have much of a chance with me, though--i will invariably find it too fake, unreal, or it will turn me off for being TOO realistic, and thereby too scary for me.)

NBC tomorrow at 8 Central. The morphing is really cool. From what I saw from one commercial, there is a Grimm descendant who sees normal people for who they really are (werewolf, vampire, ghoul, etc.) They change from regular to monster in a really nice fade.

I actually did this. A few years ago, I got a Nielsen Diary (one of several I've been asked to keep over the years) and stupidly gave my real age and sex. And, goodbye "The Nine" "Life" and some others I liked.

If I'm asked again, I'm going to say I'm a 23 year old male!!!

And by the way, if that is the coveted demographic, (I have those people around) they are watching, The Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, and the logging show (can't think of the name.)

Don't know why the Network execs don't get that it' is hard to invest in a show when the audience who will watch is dismissed as unimportant.

That sounds rather mean...Shrek wants to forget to record "Grimm", because he isn't interested in the storyline at all. He tends to "forget" when it's a show he doesn't want to watch and is apt to cancel the recording if there is something else he wants to record.

FYI: Grimm starts with a runner and Annie Lennox singing "Sweet Dreams"
