‘Grimm: Below the Surface’ Book Review

by Paul Metcalf

Books that look behind the scenes of television shows can differ in how much depth they go into.  In the superficial sense some can just give a description of the characters, give episode synopsis and choose a few episodes to look at.  Grimm: Below the Surface is a surprisingly in-depth look at the show that […]
