We’ve all heard or read Grimms’ fairy tales at one point or another in our lives. But what you know is not exactly accurate. Whether it was Snow White or Hansel and Gretel or Rapunzel or Cinderella we are more familiar with the cleaned up versions of German natives Jacob and Wilhelm’s tales. The original tales are dark and scary and in other words not something that Disney would make an animated film out of or parents would read as a bedtime story to their kids. The television producers behind the successful series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel have brought the original tales to the small screen with a twist.
A homicide detective working in Portland named Nick Burkhardt (played by David Giuntoli) one day on the job begins seeing things he cannot explain. Before he begins to believe that he is going mad his Aunt Marie (played by Kate Burton) comes to town and tells them that he is a descendant from a long line of Grimms. This means that he can see what others cannot; Nick will be able to tell who is a creature masquerading as a human. Obviously this blows his mind and complicates his life immensely.
