Grimm – “Taming of the Wu” Review. Were-Wu of Portland.

The title of my review pays homage to Warren Zevon’s song, “Werewolves of London,” as it runs through my mind. Yes, ladies and gents, what we’ve seen happening to our beloved Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee) these past few episodes finally comes to light for all to see – Wu is a werewolf. “Taming of the Wu” doesn’t just deal with Wu’s transformation after being scratched by an infected Blutbad in “Lycanthropia;” it also delves a bit deeper into the group known as “Black Claw,” and the lengths they are willing to go in order to get certain people on their side. The interesting part of the entire episode is how the young and quite impetuous Diana (Hannah R. Lloyd) behaves when things don’t go her way. Talk about temper tantrums!

Penny Dreadful – “The Day Tennyson Died” Review. Fresh Wonders and Diabolical Secrets.

Scattered throughout the Arctic, Africa, London, and the New Mexico Territory, our beloved anti-heroes return to the screen after ten long months. As the title of season three’s premiere suggests, the poet Lord Alfred Tennyson has died. Vanessa (Eva Green), however, is unaware of such news as she has entombed herself in her own wearisome malaise. Some time has passed since the traumatizing events that took place in the season two finale, “And They Were Enemies,” and with all her friends dispersed, Vanessa is unable to lift herself from her doldrums. “The Day Tennyson Died” is layered with five stories dealing with Vanessa, Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and John Clare (Rory Kinnear). Each story reveals something much bigger that lies ahead this season.

Grimm – “Good to the Bone” Review. The Good Son?

To be frank, “Good to the Bone” isn’t for the squeamish. If you have any qualms with sound effects involving slurping and/or regurgitating noises, you may find yourself gagging a little as this Wesen story unfolds. Once again, another crime has been committed involving Wesen. It seems Portland is overrun with Wesen that somehow manage to find themselves involved in illegal activity. Did the writers forget that humans still exist in the world? I’m all for introducing new Wesen but now they’ve taken one of my favorite people, Sgt Wu. (Reggie Lee) and have transformed him into something non-human. Wu-Wolf.
