    They shouldn’t put Grimm as a “bubble drama” because it already got renewed. Am I right about this?

    I feel like Grimm would be doing better if it wasn’t so utterly slow. In four seasons it feels like it’s only covered maybe two seasons worth of material for other shows. I stuck with it because I thought by this point it would have evolved into something more complex but not really.

      Agreed. I have no idea how they manage to keep stretching all this political garbage with the royals out. It’s been going on literally since the beginning of the show, and other than a few deaths here and there, I feel like absolutely nothing has happened to advance that storyline. It’s all just a bunch of whispers and rumblings about…what? If you cut all that filler out, you’re absolutely right in that there’s only about 2 seasons worth of actual story in the last 4 seasons.

        Grimm starts a bunch of story arcs and then abandons them too. They’ll start giving pieces of things and then double back and never touch on an item again. lol The show is campy fun but it seems all over the place. I have 5 episodes on my DVR and I keep struggling to watch it.

          You aren’t kidding. I’m still waiting for them to fully explain/flesh out the whole Super Nick thing that started after he had the zombie encounter almost 2 years ago now. This week it seemed like he may have used his super hearing again, but who really knows.

    I think there is something really wrong with the ratings system. I live in Chicago. Greys Anatomy didn’t air here on Thursday because of news coverage of tornadoes and storms. It didn’t air here until late Friday night. Yet the ratings said it went up in viewers and the demo. This also happens with CW shows. WGN is different here then the rest of the country. Elsewhere I think it’s called WGN America. Here WGN shows the CW shows. They also show Bulls and some of the Cubs and White Sox games so sometimes the CW shows don’t air the night they’re supposed to. The last time this happened I noticed Supernatural didn’t air here yet it had about the same rating as the previous week and was the same in the demo. How can this possibly be? We’re not talking some small town. Chicago is the third largest market in the country. How can one show go up in ratings and another stay the same without even counting the third largest market in the country? How can they even come out with ratings the next day when the shows haven’t even aired here yet?
