Review: Death Never Takes A Holiday: Grimm 2.04: Quill

This entry is part 4 of 23 in the series Grimm Season 2

By J. Keith Haney

[spoilers ahead]

“Death stood behind him and said, ‘Follow me; the hour of your departure from this world has come.”

This week’s quote is done over a rocking music track while a modern cityscape zips on by, which is highly unusual. Apparently, the music is playing in an oversized, puke-green Ford truck where a guy is pulling up to a spotlight under the …

Review: Ties That Bind: Grimm 2.03: Bad Moon Rising

This entry is part 3 of 23 in the series Grimm Season 2

By J. Keith Haney

[spoilers ahead]

“Then she began to weep bitterly and said, ‘What can a poor girl like me do?’”

For some reason, the above quote feels like it could have been said by virtually every non-Hexenbiest female character (with the exceptions of Juliette and Rosalie) that we’ve seen thus far. Anyway, we start with a recap before the quote that covers Hank’s PTSD, Nick’s …

The Rise and Decay of The Holy Roman Empire

This entry is part 25 of 25 in the series Grimm Season 1

By J. Keith Haney

It is virtually impossible to talk about the history of medieval Germany without talking about the Holy Roman Empire. But it was a mostly toothless political entity that also involved France and Italy (the latter being another country that stayed completely disunified until the early 20th Century). As such, it has a history as convoluted as a 1990’s Marvel Comics X-Men storyline. So, …
