    LMS is not a drama

  • Elijah

    LOL at Colin thinking LMS is a drama. @!^%@!^@!!!!!!!! Funniest stuff ever.

  • BL

    I’m 100% sure that Grimm will be renewed! Last night’s episode was fantastic.

  • joel

    LMS isn’t funny so I see where there could be some confusion.

  • Goku

    @BL – Everybody is sure that Grimm will be renewed. I mean, 1.5 is a huge number for NBC lately ;).

  • RyanCanada

    I love Grimm so much

  • Wright

    I can actually see Grimm getting a1.7 with next week’s episode. Nice job! :)

    Good news about Grimm. Now hopefully more people will know it’s back and the ratings come up a little more.

  • Ashley

    One of the best shows around period. I wish more people would watch it but it’s on NBC, the doomed station. I only watched it during the summer after season 1 on Netflix b/c nothing else was on and loved it. When I saw the promos when it first came out, I disregarded it b/c it was a NBC show. Glad I gave it a chance. Now if only we can get more people to try it out.
