Grimm 2

TV GUIDE: Weekend TV Review: Return of the Dead, Friday Means Fringe, and More

... It's hard to keep up with all the cult fantasy airing on Fridays these days, so I was glad to get an advance screener of NBC's Grimm (9/8c) to reacquaint myself with this diverting creep show. This week's fiend, played by genre fave Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse), is something of a lethal spider woman — though when threatened has as aspect of a spider monkey as well. Her story is enjoyably icky, but the better parts of this episode involve Nick (David Giuntoli) dealing with his unwanted notoriety among the local creature population. "You're the monster under the bed," Monroe (the always enjoyable Silas Weir Mitchell) tells him, reminding him of the power of the Grimm legend. "You're not real. You're a scary story we tell our kids." Grimm is something of a bedtime story for kids of all ages: not too scary, not too silly. Just about right for Friday nights...
