I still like "Grimm" though I think my wife just tolerates it.

"OUAT" neither of us is sure of just yet, though I'd have to admit what I consider to be a radical retelling of the Snow White character in last night's back story helped.

Thanks for reminding me to check my spelling when using shorthand... :)

I thought I was going to like Grimm and not like Once Upon A Time, but it's actually the opposite for me.

Grimm just seems like any other cop show, but with werewolves and such, and not well done. Once Upon A Time just seems to have a much broader concept IMO and better story.

I'm intrigue by both. But for inventiveness, my nod goes to Once Upon A Time. While Grimm, so far, is the sort of standard monster-in-the-closet fair.

This week's GRIMM was fun with the evil bees theme. Plus they're starting to introduce the underlying conspiracy theme, which should help drive the story forward and make it something more than just monster of the week.

And, yeah, phrelin, last week's Snow White back story was a kickass surprise. Adding a bit of humor helped liven the show up a bit.

On the Retention of Interest Scale, Grimm is sinking while Once is rising. I find myself distracted and not paying attention to Grimm, while I can't get enough of Once.

I wanted so much to like it, but Grimm has to start doing more to keep my interest of I may be letting it go.

Well Once has the pretty babes. Grimm is grim in this respect.

Now that both of these have had a few episodes, I'm really enjoying both. Grimm has developed pretty darned good. And Once Upon a Time just keeps getting better with each passing episode.

I still like OUAT a bit more than Grimm, but I like both plenty!

After almost a full season, I'm now liking Grimm more than Once Upon a Time.

I definitely like both. They are definitely taking different approaches to the fairy tale genre, which is nice.
