    Don’t really like the zombie plot much in Grimm and could they turn down the gross a little? But I still love the show. Dracula was very much better last night. I thought that the first episode was boring, so I fear that many didn’t come back. But if they give it another try, I believe that they might stay with it. I really enjoyed it last night.

    I liked the zombie plot on Grimm, though I admit that I’m glad it was only a two-episode arc. Same goes for evil Nick–glad that didn’t last long. The one storyline that I wish would go away is Adalind. It seems pointless and takes up way too much screen time.

    So I take it the show is not moving to Wednesdays as previously planned? That would have made my TV schedule a lot better…
