Grimm Season 1NBC’s hit fantasy TV show Grimm is a blend between classic fairy tales and a modern police procedural.

David Giuntoli (TV’s Privileged) heads up the television series’ cast as Nick Burkhardt, a homicide detective who discovers he is a Grimm and has the gift of being able to see supernatural creatures. Soon he’s solving cases that concern mythical monsters and getting help from a reformed Big Bad Wolf (Silas Weir Mitchell, TV’s Prison Break).

In season one, Nick and his partner Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, TV’s Lincoln Heights) must stop a firey family feud, a prison escapee seeking revenge, a human organs harvesting ring and a mysterious woman who seduces men then kills them in a particularly gruesome way.

Guest stars in the first season include Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (Scarface), Titus Welliver (Man on a Ledge) and Sebastian Roche (TV’s Criminal Minds).

The DVD and Blu-ray contain a monsterous amount of special features. Here’s the list:

  • deleted scenes

  • “The World of Grimm” about the characters, creatures and inspiration behind the storylines
  • “Making Monsters” featurette, going behind the scenes with makeup effects guru Andy Clement and Barney Burman and the Hive FX team giving examples of how the monsters in Grimm are brought to life.
