premiers new show fall season
Grimm Season 6 is ready for the small screen on Jan. 06, 2017, but news over the cancellation of Season 7 skyrocketed through the internet creating an immediate campaign to save the supernatural show. It’s not your Mama’s fairy tale and these creatures are no joke although some episodes have been puntastically terrific. The show has a bit of everything from love scenes to action and of course, mythical creatures. The strong heroic lead, Nick Burkhart a Portland detective and residential eye candy, is a fan favorite. Nick is the guy who goes the extra mile, not only for the people he loves, but for the citizens of Portland, human and Vessen alike. Vessen are the supernatural element in the show which combine humans with animals that almost shape shift in ‘vessen’ mode.
Nick is Grimm. A Grimm is almost like a modern Knight of the Templar set out to hunt down the Vessen which are considered unnatural and unworthy to live or reproduce. Unlike his ancestors, Nick does not desire to randomly kill every Vessen he meets unless they are a bad kind, who prey upon humans.However, the lines are blurring with him and Adalind.
An exciting scene already leaked shows the length of Nick’s persistence to save Adalind, the mother of his child, who is back to being a Hexenbeast. Captain Renard, the father of Adalind’s first child has taken her and Nick wills top at nothing to get her back. Ahhh love. Rumor has it that he might even be compelled to use his supernatural powers, which can adversely affect him.
However, there is a lot of love between Nick and Adalind.
For those uninitiated, “Grimm” was first launched in 2011, garnering considerably high number of audience, which prompted the network to reach until the sixth season. It is about the supernatural detective, Nick Burkhardt, who is endowed with supernatural powers which allows him to catch creatures with supernatural abilities too.
Other members of “Grimm’s” cast include Russell Homsby as hank Griffin, Silas Weir Mitchell as Monroe, Sasha Roiz as Captain Renard, Reggie Lee as Sergeant Wu and Elizabeth Tulloch as Juliette.
Here is a basic map of the action to catch you up on the fantastic series.
I m super excited about the new season on AMC. I am even more anxious to see a martial arts dynamo kicking some butt on screen from the pleasure of my couch. Into the Badlands premiers on AMC on November 15th staring Daniel Wu. The name might not be familiar to many American audiences but the face is. Some may even remember him from The Man With the Iron Fist, he played Poison Dagger with that infamous line:
Poison Dagger: I’ll see you in hell!
Jackknife: [Chuckles] Yes, I suppose you will. I’ll save you a spot by the fire.
AMC deems Into the Badlands as “a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands tells the story of a great warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.”
Of course, most people aren’t familiar with 16th Century Chinese folklore of a priest and his three disciples Monkey, Pig & Friar Sand who Journey to the West to find the Buddhist Sutra. The first 12 of 100 chapters are background info on the Monkey King and take the pebble from my hand grasshopper kind of things. The final chapters of the story describes how these unlikely heroes vanquish demons and monsters. In order to find the Sutra, they must journey over the Fiery Mountain, cross the Milky Way, and after battling many threats to their sanity, finally arrive at their destination – the Thunder Monastery in the Western Heaven.
Yeah. That is the story in a nutshell. I would rather just watch Daniel kick some ass.
I was curious though, since he is in between Hong Kong and LA, if he would be tweeting live with viewers.
Color me disappointed, but I wasn’t the only one. Jason was a little bummed as well. Never fear @Jason_The_Ninja, he won’t let us down.
Join us in November on Twitter as we tweet live with me and the show. I am certain @Jason_The_Ninja will be there as well.
AMC is quickly becoming one of my favorite channels to watch. I tuned in with interest on FX to see the Bastard Executioner, but had to come back and watch that on Wednesday night. (I can’t stay up to midnight on a Sunday). I am highly anxious to see another new series AMC is set to roll out this fall called Into the Badlands.
Into the Badlands is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands tells the story of a great warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.
What I love about this show already is that is casts Daniel Wu in the leading role. He is not cast as some wise cracking side kick, or the sage cook at the hero’s favorite Chinese restaurant, but as a kick ass leading man in a television drama.
I have tweeted him, and am awaiting an answer on how he feels about this. When he responds, I will let you know. In the meantime, and in between time, here is the trailer for the show.
The series premiers November 15 at 10/9 central on AMC.
