Here is the plot description for “Grimm”:

“Grimm” is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm’s fairy tales. Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, “Turn the Beat Around”) discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms”. He’s charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world.

As he tries to hide the dangers of his new calling from his fiancé, Juliette Silverton (Bitsie Tulloch, “quarterlife”), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, “Lincoln Heights”), he becomes ever-more entrenched in the ancient rivalries and alliances of the Grimm world.

With help from his confidant, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell, “Prison Break”), a reformed Grimm creature himself, Nick must navigate through the forces of a larger-than-life mythology. He faces off with Hexenbiests, Blutbads and all manner of ancient evils including royal lines dating back to the original profilers themselves: The Grimm Brothers. Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star.

What is your all-time favorite fairy tale and why?


I actually grew up believing the whole “marrying a prince” concept, growing up. Ugh. Kids are supposed to be gullible. Have since taught my daughter the truth. Haha

Because it has taught me to beware of the big bad wolf.

My Favorite Fairy Tale of All Time

It is Cinderella, because she is kind and beautiful and suffered enough at the hands of her evil stepmother and stepsister. In the end she finally gets her man and a rich fulfilled life.

Favorite Fairy Tale

Hansel & Grettle because it terrified me as a kid.

The Little Mermaid

I always loved The Little Mermaid because she was kind of quirky in her own group by marching to the beat of her own drum but was still loved. I admired the way she followed her own passions, dreams, and love to get what she wanted no matter how difficult it was.

My favorite fairy tale is The Emperor’s New Clothes because the world is full of bullshit yet people refuse to admit it. Instead, they follow each other around like a bunch of sheep. I prefer to tell it like it is, but in a polite sort of way.

  • Remember Me, Rita Moreno

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure.
