When I learned that NBC was to cancel Grimm after its sixth season I’ll admit that I got upset. Yeah, Grimm’s being canceled.
Grimm is one of my favorite shows (and the only one I watch on NBC) and that’s because it was constantly interesting and not afraid to be different from the sameness of the dozens of police and hospital dramas. While still based around police, the show was interesting because of its fantasy elements that combined horror, drama, and comedy.
I was so excited to watch the show when it first aired, intrigued by how different it was. After all of these years it has continued to entertain fans. Beyond that, the show had inspired me to write a supernatural novel. Although I only wrote a few chapters before pushing that project to the side, Grimm played a crucial role in making me see the fantastic elements and the enormous potential of its genre.
To see the show canceled despite good Friday ratings is extremely disappointing. NBC always cancels their best shows. With the passing of Grimm, I will no longer be watching anything on NBC. None of their other shows are even close to being interesting or worth my time.
Consider this my final plea to NBC, a network that I once held in high regard, only to see it continue to make blunder after blunder. Grimm should be renewed for another season or two to adequately wrap up the complex plot and to make everyone happy.
