Complete first season of American McGee's Grimm (1-8)
All About Grimm
Grimm is sick of happy endings, bloodless romances, blind obedience, insipid weddings, unearned wealth, unmerited praise, and undeserved good fortune. He’s had enough! And, like every bad boy who’s had enough... he wants more. More passion, madness, revenge - and misery. More darkness, and more difference. And what’s the harm?
Enough of this baloney (for want of a more suitable 4-letter word) passing itself off as culturally-relevant commentary. Fairy tales aren’t supposed to suffocate us with nonsensical pap. They should engage us, entertain us. Forget the sap-sucking morals, the boring life lessons, the comfort from the cold. Grimm’s tales are like real life: nasty, brutish, and short. And funny.
He’s used his natural talent and (some might say, offensive) bodily presence to turn the tales back toward their dark roots – folk tales that truly teach how to avoid soul-crushing danger through examples of what happens when you screw up.
In Grimm’s world, Cinderella takes sweet revenge on her tormentors; Jack, the witless lay-about and giant-murderer, doesn’t get the girl; welch on a deal with a Pied Piper and you lose more than your children. All wishes have price tags, and there's no cheating the fish, the ring, or the genie. Little Red Riding Hood gets eaten.
In Grimm’s world, people die... messily. And very few lessons are clear, but sometimes things make much more sense when viewed through dirty (some might say "blood-stained") windows.
